Our Army has Come

Defying police degradation,
Tossing aside tradition,
We have come!
Dalit, Battered woman, worker, farmer
In an army together,
We have come!

To end dowry, rape, misused authority,
To stop wife-beating and cruelty,
We have come!
To wipe women’s suppression,
To remove class oppression,
To free this humanity -
In a morcha we have come!

From Hill, Dock and Railway Shed,
Inspite of owner’s threat and dread
We have come!
Look! Look! You blind exploiter tyrant
Our army has come!
To destroy Injustice, our army has come!
