Zimbabwe (3:51)

Cover of Songs of Freedom

From Songs of Freedom and 31 other releases

From the original Album Survival - Album Year: 1979

Containing what is considered Marley’s most defiant and politically charged statement to date, Survival concerns itself with the expressed solidarity of not only Africa, but of humanity at large. The album was controversial right down to the jacket, which contains a crude schematic of the stowage compartment of a typical transatlantic slave ship. Survival is intended as a wake-up call for everyman to resist and fight oppression in all of its insidious forms.

01 So Much Trouble In The World

05 Survival
06 Africa Unite

    zimbabwe is the natural end product of one-party rule and state-run media. And to answer loudy, nobody will help until the UN overwhelmingly condemns the government and sanctions an effective form of intervention (which will never happen, surprise).

    I often wonder what Bob would make of the state of Zimbabwe these days after this song inspired the initial change
