The song marked the end of a day of discussions (and arguments...) amongst the social movements, which resulted with the call for a general strike and demonstrations on the day that the war in Iraq started, and an all European wide demonstration on February 15th 2003.

For the large part, protest songs gain their social and politcal efficacy from their public performance, not consumed in the home but produced in the street - this is where a protest song gains its social currency, its specific value, in fact its cultural identity as 'protest song'.
