"Céad Mile Fáilte to the IMF" protest song

To be spread widely, this song is copy left/cc
I would like to share a great protest song representing the resistance to the IMF/EU intervention in Ireland. The IMF has a "great" history in social devastation through structural reforms. We have to stand in solidarity with all the people facing these anti-social policies in the Global South and nowadays also in Europe with the examples of Greece and now Ireland. This is not only a question of solidarity: If we do not stop them (the international institutions fighting against the people, i.e. EU and IMF along with "our" local governments) now, they will definitely come for us soon with even bigger cuts than those already on the way.
Céad Mile Fáilte to the IMF by Soundmigration

Céad míle fáilte (Hundred Thousand Welcomes) - To the IMF

We hope to meet you on the streets - To fight you to the death.
And we know how you got here - Back room deals and open arms
As you try to suck the life from us - With your structural reforms

They just lit a fuse - It's time for us to choose (x2)

You must think we're fucking stupid - Feed our fears with blocks of cheese
It'll take more than dairy products - To keep us on our knees
Don’t talk to us about violence - You hypocritical scum
Just look at all our hospitals - And the homeless on the run
Destitution politics - Death by credit card
But you can't kill the love we have - For justice in our heart

Cos they just lit a fuse - It's time for us to choose (x2)

We'll walk as we talk to create – And we'll tear the bullshit down
We gonna build democracy and we'll do it town by town
And it ain't just for the Irish, English, Scottish or the Welsh
Injustice has no borders – Our lives before their wealth

Cos they just lit a fuse - It's time for us to choose (x2)

Céad míle fáilte - To the IMF
We hope to meet you on the streets - We'll beat you to the death

And we know how you got here - Back room deals and open arms
As you try to suck the life from us - With your structural reforms

We hope to meet you on the streets - To fight you to the death ...
