Music video: Lyrics: AMANDLA, MARIKANA! Miners underground sweating in the heat Miners above ground never enough to eat Miners underground fearing daily for their lives Miners above ground separated from their far off wives Chorus: New dawn, what is to be done? New day – there’s a struggle to be won Amandla Marikana! (3) Platinum, white gold for the rich they go crazy with this new Midas itch Workers dig with aching bones and backs for cold water in rundown shacks Company says, all profits reserved that’s what investors deserve Go on strike but you’ll get no pay soon you’ll bend to our power play Chorus: New dawn, time to resist New day rising – through the bloody mist Amandla Marikana! (3) Tired of sweetheart union leaders Wabenzi liberation cheaters Worker warriors take their place ready to defend the miners’ case On Wonderkop hill they take their stand gather together, make their demands Down tools for a ‘living wage’ prepare to break the bosses’ cage Chorus: New dawn rising with the sun New day shining – off the barrel of a gun Amandla Marikana! (3) ‘Law and order’ must be restored no price too high to afford Government bosses send in the cops stake out an ambush, the bullets don’t stop Nightfall on Wonderkop hill even the vultures are shocked and still 34 miners fallen to earth blood more precious than platinum’s worth Chorus: Amandla Marikana! (2) Amandla Ngawethu! (Power – it is ours!) #audio #Rock #Reggae #Folk #Jazz
