Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello performed at the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City's Zuccotti Park on Friday morning (video below). He played and sang the classic Woody Guthrie folk song 'This Land is Your Land.'

Morello also played for protesters at Occupy Los Angeles last week. Both events in New York and Los Angeles were live-streamed on the Internet, with footage provided by the protesters.

The musician/activist previously performed songs and gave speeches at pro-union demonstrations in Madison, Wisconsin.

The New York City demonstrators were facing an eviction from the park, which did not happen. It was announced late last night (video below) that the park owners had withdrawn their request for police help in clearing protesters ahead of a planned cleaning.
