about

Note: "The Freedom Cage" was the name given to the protected Free Speech area, located at Federal Hall, where Occupiers came to continue their protest in the Spring of 2012. Most of the people who protested at Federal Hall were original Zuccotti denizens who had been driven north to Union Square. The "Freedom Cage" provided sanctuary because of Federal rules that were more tolerant of street protest than areas patrolled by the NYPD.

lyrics

THE FREEDOM CAGE
Words and music by Stephen C. Baldwin, performed by Stephen C. Baldwin

There’s a special place where we can speak our thoughts
It’s a First Amendment space where we can’t be caught
Federal rules apply beyond the barricades
We can speak our minds in the Freedom Cage

In the Freedom Cage

It’s a dedicated zone that surrounds us here
You have found your home, you will have no fear
You can make a sign, I can rant and rave
No one will be fined or sent away

In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
