Tom Morello for Stop the War in London

Here is a clip from another Stop the War gig I helped organise, June 2007 Tom Morello at the Scala in London.On the bill with him were Ed Harcourt, Frank Turner and MC Mark Steel.It was a great evening but not as exciting as 7 years earlier when Morello and Rage Against the Machine caused the doors of the NY Stock Exchange to be closed when they played outside  They and their fans stormed the building and it had to lock its doors during the middle of the trading day. Morello was quoted: "Our protest stopped trading at the stock exchange for the last two hours of the day. I guess we stopped downsizing for at least a couple of hours." Who says music can't change anything. And here's a Monday morning treat – Tom performing solo in Cuba
