The title is a play on both the terms of "Freedom Riders", the black and white
civil rights activists who tested the U.S. Supreme Court decision ordering the desegregation of interstate buses in 1961, and Freedom Fighters,
as in somebody who fights for freedom...

Out of Time Man sung by Mano Negra
Lyrics + Video

"Time don't fool me no more
I throw my watch to the floor...
"Now it's half past two"
Long gone the rendez-vous
"Now it's half past three"
Time made a fool out of me
"Now it's half past four"
Oh baby, can't you see ?
No use in waiting no more
It's a timing tragedy"

'Bread and Roses'
Un travail réalisé par Patrick DUCLOU, professeur à Tours
Teachers' Notes
Student's Worksheet # 1
Student's Worksheet # 2
(Yvan Baptiste)

 

Bread and Roses (film)
a 2000 film directed by Ken Loach
"The plot deals with the struggle of poorly paid janitorial workers in Los Angeles
and their fight for better working conditions and the right to unionize...
The film's name, "Bread and Roses", derives from the 1912 textile strike
in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Though the phrase comes from a 1910 poem
by James Oppenheim, it is commonly associated with the Lawrence strike,
which united dozens of immigrant communities, led to a large extent by women,
under the leadership of the Industrial Workers of the World."
