Union Songs

The Fire

- [play]

A song by Tetsuro Tanaka ©Tetsuro Tanaka

In August, all Japanese call "no more war".
But, how many people can say when a war is to begin?
In May, people call solidarity of workers.

But, aren't there people who get discrimination in your work?
Haven't you turned your eyes away from small injustices in your life?
A person who can't extinguish even a cigarette, can't extinguish the fire.
