Zack de la Rocha is a man who clearly has some questions for the government. His band is even named after it! C'mon. Rage Against The Machine? How much more obvious can you get?
But his activism isn't just for show. After he heard the news of police evicting Occupy Wall Street on Mayor Bloomberg's command, he began penning a poem for the protestors.

Zack De La Rocha of Rage Against the Machine is planning a series of concerts called the Sound Strike campaign to protest Arizona's state immigration laws.
"In the coming weeks we are going to be organizing a series of concerts that are respectful of the nature of the boycott in its attempts to isolate the Arizona government but not isolate the people, and especially the organizations that are fighting this on the ground."
"Many of us have begun to plan concerts that include bands that have signed on the Sound Strike, and make tickets available so that people within Arizona can come and see these concerts as they roll out."
Sound Strike participants include Maroon 5, My Morning Jacket, Ben Harper and Pitbull who have all agreed to boycott the state until the new law is repealed.
