'French letter' (4 o 4)

The New Zealand reggae group Herbs released the song 'French letter' in 1982 in protest against French nuclear testing in the South Pacific. It became a popular hit and a protest anthem. When France briefly resumed testing in 1995, the band re-released the track. This clip shows the group performing the new version.
