Jamaica Statement: Peter Tosh 75

Everyone is crying out for peace, yes
None is crying out for justice
Everyone is crying out for peace, yes
None is crying out for justice
I don't want no peace
I need equal rights... and justice
I need equal rights... and justice
I need equal rights... and justice
Got to get it
Equal rights... and justice
Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to die (father us, Jesus!)
Everybody want to go up to heaven
But none of them, none of them want to die
I don't want no peace
I-man need equal rights... and justice
I've got to get it, equal rights... and justice
I really need it, equal rights... and justice
Just give me my share
Equal rights... and justice
What is due to Caesar
You better give it on to Caesar
And what belong to I and I
You better, you better give it up to I
'Cause I don't want no peace
I need equal rights... and justice
I need equal rights... and justice
I've got to get it
Equal rights... and justice
I'm a-fighting for it
Equal rights... and justice
Everyone heading for the top
But tell me, how far is it from the bottom?
Nobody know, but everybody fighting to reach the top
How far is it from the bottom?
I don't want no peace
I want equal rights... and justice
I need equal rights... and justice
I've got to get it
Equal rights... and justice
I really need it
Equal rights... and justice
Everyone is talking about crime
Tell me, who are the criminals?
I said, everybody is talking about crime, crime
Tell me who, who are the criminals?
I really don't see them
I don't want no peace
I need equal rights... and justice
We've got to get equal rights... and justice
And there'll be no crime
Equal rights... and justice
There'll be no criminals
Equal rights... and justice
Everyone is fighting for equal rights... and justice
Palestine is fighting for equal rights... and justice
Down in Angola
Equal rights... and justice
Down in Botswana
Equal rights... and justice
Down in Zimbabwe
Equal rights... and justice
Down in Rhodesia
Equal rights... and justice
Right here in Jamaica

Yeah, I just covered him in March, but I promised I'd do it again so here I am with it.
Part of this, remixed and with new music added to it, was issued back a ways, but this is the raw -- and, save for the drum fill between Rastafari Is and I'm the Toughest lost in the tape flip, complete -- sunrise performance of the man and his homecoming after a protracted absence from Jamaica.
I'll be back tomorrow with more, but you know what kinda Irie is waiting behind that link above, so get clicking and avoid all bumbaclaats.--J.
