STAND UP & SHOUT! was born of troubled parents: disappointment and frustration. Disappointment that our great country has seemingly abandoned its heard-earned values, turned its back on unionism, refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, incarcerated refugees seeking asylum, led us into undeclared wars, introduced draconian workplace legislation, sold our media and culture down the drain and encouraged rampant commercial greed. Frustration that we have not moved closer to a Republic, (other than the United States of America), and frustrated that we stand under a cloud of conservatism that defies our larrikin spirit of independence and fair play.
 
On a bright note, it is important to realize this is still a great country girt by sea, at peace under the Southern Cross, abounding in natural resources, especially its greatest resource of all, its people. It is these same people who can and will change the path of Australia, steer it into the blue, out of wars, around unfair laws, towards a Republic, and to a new Australia that we can all be rightfully proud of.
 
To be effective the people’s voice has to be heard. To be heard it must sing out like a massed choir. Solidarity has been the keyword of unionism for over a hundred years but it now applies to all of us. We must be unified in our voice.
 
This collection of thought-provoking songs came together from a good idea – from little things big things grow – and would never have happened without the enthusiasm of the songwriters and singers who set the ball rolling. All the artists on STAND UP & SHOUT! have donated their artist royalties to GetUp! www.getup.org.au because they believe the politically unaligned grassroots organization does an effective job in communicating issues that effect one and all of us. That can’t be a bad thing!
 
STAND UP & SHOUT! is a testament to the continuing role of song in political activism. Songs can sometimes get a hearing where politicians and big business cannot, and never will. We are not telling people how to vote but to vote with their hearts, not pockets. We hope this collection opens some minds to a new Australia.
