Steve Larrick

An entertaining, educational, inspirational collection of artistic expressions i
Here's an entertaining, educational and inspirational primer on why people are defending democracy against corporate control. Among 32 cuts are musical classics from champions of justice like Bruce Cockburn and Gil Scott-Heron as well as contemporary gems from Ani DiFranco, Toni Scherr, and Chris Brown. Spoken word recordings from Jello Biafra, Maude Barlow and David Suzuki top off an audio documentary of globalization issues. Proceeds support progressive sources for news like THE NATION.

Bruce Coary

Invigorating and Inspiring
Eclectic mix of artists and styles. Unified in message and spirit. Beautifully done.

What do you get when you start with Ani DiFranco, Michael Franti, Jello Biafra, Barenaked Ladies and add at least a dozen other powerful artists all with one vision to help promote the awareness of the social and environmental impact of corporate globalization? This, an amazing, tearful, gut wrenching compilation that embodies music's most noble cause- to be a voice and heart for the people.

Thomas Bacher

Absolutely hip-hop-happenin' dude!
A great collection of songs and voices who rage against the status quotient of big business, big government, and big wigheads. If it weren't 2002, this would be the sixties again. If your mind is open, buy it now and consume it before the media consumes you!

This is what I've been yearning for.
This is a nice mix of musical styles,
and the bands chosen were great.
Even the ones I'de never heard of.
There was one or two that seemed
less Hollywood than the rest, but it only
added to the flavor. It would have been
nice to have the words translated from
the French song, but all in all nice stuff.
Too bad they didn't add some MANA or at least
one Latin American voice,
cuz they're in the same boat.

We need more like this!

Phil Griffin

Worth it just for the Gil Scott-Heron - Work For Peace cut.
It's painless to do good in the world when all you have to do to contribute is to grab this CD. Lot's of new, vital music from many different artist. Really a wonderful find.

Another world is possible. Buy this and get inspired!
As someone who has been following the anti-globalization movement for a long time, and participating in the peace movement, I just want to say that this cd set is amazing.

First of all, this cd is a grouping of amazingly talented artists. In addition, the range of this cd is as broad as the movement itself. From funk, to folk, to hip-hop, to punk, the music is great.

My favorite parts of this cd set are the spoken word excerpts. Tracks 6 and 11 on cd1 are both amazing. Track 6 discusses both how present day capitalism has reverted to feudalism, and the wall in quebec was the same as feudal moats. Track 11 discusses how the roots of the violence in quebec grew right out of the disenfranchisement of youth by society.

Buy this CD. Get inspired. Contribute to the movement. We are at a pivotal time in history, where power structures are changing. This cd set is a powerful chronicle of a large part of the new movement. Another world is possible.

Almost like being there!
I was not able to travel to the recent mass mobilizations to call for an end to war and to protest for PEACE....so I try to be there in othere ways. Thanks for Gascd and all the great music and spoken words. Even when I can't be at the really big events I can still get the feel of being there. I will listen to Gascd as I drive to my local protest line each Saturday for inspiriation......Of course I will be traveling in my hybrid car..a Prius! Thanks for the chance to get a cd and help some great causes too! Yeah !!! for those who participated in Gascd!
