Excerpt from Peter Yarrow's New 'Don't Ever Take Away My Freedom'
Highlights of the NCC's March 8, 2004, "Guantanamo Due Process Interfaith Prayer/Reflection Service included singer Peter Yarrow's debut of a new verse for his 1970 song "Don't Ever Take Away My Freedom." The verse addresses the issue of the deprivation of due process for the Guantanamo detainees. Yarrow has done a special recording of an excerpt from the song, along with a brief commentary, exclusively for the NCC Web site. He writes, "It is my hope that this song, and others, will help in the current effort to make sure that the detainees are granted due process ... a fair process that exemplifies the rights we have come to rely upon in a democracy and which observe the legal covenants to which America has subscribed among other nations of world."
