Wow. Since the 70's!? I last sang it in public back in 2003 at the SP USA convention. I still prefer the version by Billy Bragg (and the CD that included other Left songs). There was a Japenese rock group that did a wonderful version of it.

On November 18th I attended a memorial meeting for Caroline Lund, a 
socialist activist who I knew from the Socialist Workers Party in the 1960s 
and 70s. She had died a few weeks earlier of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) at 
the age of 62 and the speakers and audience were honoring her accomplishments.

In keeping with the traditions of our movement, the meeting concluded with 
a singing of the Internationale. It was the first time I had sung it in 
public since the last SWP convention I had attended in the 1970s.
