Bill Moyers Talks to Tom Morello, a "Troubadour for Justice"

On last night's episode of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers interviewed Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and, more recently, the Occupy movement. From the show's website:

As likely to be spotted at a grass-roots rally as he would at a concert hall, Morello was in Madison, Wisconsin last year, braving bitter winter weather to sing on the steps of the state capitol in support of public service workers. Morello defended their collective bargaining rights against Republican Governor Scott Walker.

He was in New York City at the May Day demonstrations, an honorary commander of a battalion of musicians they called the “Occupy Guitarmy.” That same night, Harry Belafonte presented Morello with the Officers’ Award from the Sidney Hillman Foundation, honoring his “advocacy for and support of working people across the world.”
