Guagua Politica: 212-679-6018 A Legal Help Number for Civil Disobedience 

Last week when I marched with the protest movement Occupy Wall St, we were told to memorize this Legal Aid number in case we were arrested: 212-679-6018. I made this song to help people memorize it.  The song is inspired by traditional African American work songs and spirituals. In particular the song from the prayer meeting scene in Glory.
 
I hope the song is catchy and does it's job of getting 212-679-6018 stuck in your head. 

I just heard, that some other musicians have had the same idea. That's cool, I'm not trying to be clever. I'm only trying to be useful. I haven't heard the other song and I'm sorry if our songs are similar and any other musician is offended.

Keep the faith, and...

Thanks for Listening,

Marcos
