Peter Tosh: Equal Rights

"Everyone's crying out for peace now, none's crying out for justice...I don't want no peace, equal rights and justice..."
"Equal Rights", one of Peter Tosh's immortal anthems... (in the video you can see also the bad consequences he got after having been brutally beaten by Jamaican cops. That was one of the several attacks he suffered for openly speaking against local politicians' corruption and in support of cannabis legalization.)
His son Andrew will sing (together with Kymani Marley and Cen'C Love, Bunny Wailer's daughter) during the next Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam (Nov. 23/27), when Peter Tosh will be inducted into the Counterculture Hall of Fame.
