Washington Bullets (Again)


"...As every cell in Chile will tell/The cry of the tortured men/Remember Allende, and the boys before/Before the Army came/Please remember Victor Jara/In the Santiago stadium/Es Verdas-those Washington bullets again/The Bay of Pigs-in 1961/Havana for the playboys in the Cuban sun/For Castro is a colour redder than red/Those Washington bullets want Castro dead..."

(The Clash, "Washington Bullets", 1980)
