Highlight from “Tom Morello and Talib Kweli protest against TPP as fellow stars stay quiet”

Rock Against the TPP is a rare example of mainstream artists pushing fans to take political action. There has been a steady decline in artists using their voice to call for political action outside carefully choreographed events, such as the Democratic convention.

This is a far stretch from the 1950s and 60s, when mainstream success almost required an active political stance. The likes of James Brown, Bob Dylan and Gil Scott-Heron were deeply involved in protest and used their platform to push an agenda.
