Environment Solutions Finished The End Music with a message North America:
Protest songs "music with a message" originated from industrial workers of America in 1904.
All folk protest songs of the early 1900's were kept in the Little Red Song Book
Woody Guthrie- started writing his own personal songs of change in 1942, inspired by the Little Red Song Book. Woody Guthrie:
Traveled the country, guitar in hand, playing heartfelt songs about social change to the working class audiences.
His career boosted, by the end he wrote thousands of classical/socialist folk songs - This Land Is Your Land
During Guthrie's illness/death he was visited by an inspired fan named Bob Dylan.
Unlike Guthrie, Dylan wrote songs about current international events such as: the Vietnam war and the Cuban missile crisis. Chain of 60's protest songs:
Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On"-Vietnam war
70's and 80's music: rock music
John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance"
1990's to Today
New millennium of music = more diverse topics
Lauryn Hill's "That Thing Doo-Wop" - feminist messages
OutKast's "Bombs Over Baghdad" Reasons why peace and awareness music is made Inequality
Poverty Inequality America:
Throughout history leading up to today, African Americans and minority ethic groups are being incarcerated unjustly.
1 in every 15 African American / Hispanic men are sentenced to longer jail time compared to 1 in every 106 white men who have done the same crime.
In Canadian history, Aboriginals were forced into abusive Residential schools.
Today, this inequality causes Aboriginal people to be one of the poorest groups in Canada Inequality Africa & Asia:
Gender inequality amongst females
Uganda- girls under 18 years are forced into marriage, 60% living with HIV/Aids

India- unequal ratio of boys to girls (gender imbalance)
1000 boys - 933 girls. Environmental Issues Deforestation:
Forests world wide are depleting at an unimaginable rate of 100 acres per min.
Impacts include extinction, loss of habitat and release of Green House Gasses. Russia:
Russia's environmental policy states- 16 million hectares of forest lost yearly due to deforestation.
Deforestation rates have risen as a result of extensive logging- raw materials the making of paper. Environmental Issues Hawaii:
Urbanization- leading cause for deforestation in parts of Hawaii.
Companies tear down trees plus natural landscapes to meet the demands of urban population growth:
- expand cities
Agriculture/subsistence farming is main cause for deforestation
Rising population growth=high demand of food
Farmers+families "slash and burn" to provide land space for crops/ food supply Poverty America:
14.5% of US households (49 million Americans) struggle to stay above poverty level.
1 in 6 Americans rely on food stamps/ meal tickets to put food on the table.
Leading reasons include:
Lack of education- high school dropout rate is 3 million/year
Low income- 57% live paycheck to paycheck
Unemployment- 41% are completely unemployed Poverty Canada:
The hidden homeless
450,000 to 900,000 have no place to call home
882,000 depend on food banks monthly
41% of Sub-Saharan Africa lives on less than a dollar a day
700,000 infants will die before their first birthday
800 Million people go hungry every night One Tribe:

One love, One blood, One people, One heart, One beat, We're equal, Connected like the Internet, United that's how we do... Let love and Peace lead you.
Globally, it gives a view of all cultures and races, showing that world peace can be achieved if we just accept each other as One Tribe. Big Yellow Taxi:
Covered by Counting Crows and Vanessa Carlton
Environmentally-Outlines the results/impacts of deforestation on both the environment and humankind
"Paved paradise and put up a parking lot...leave me the birds & bees"
Shows us the cost of taking valuables for granted
"Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got till it's gone"
Much like deforestation- loss of trees/nature/life; Humanity is quite similar. Socially-Reveals the struggle individuals face.
The raw emotions which
fester when having nothing.
" Caught in the middle, I could cry just a little when I think of letting go".
