"Whirlwinds of danger are raging around us,

O'erwhelming forces of darkness assail,

Still in the fight see advancing before us,

Red flag of liberty that yet shall prevail"

It explores the myth of red Kemi, the most leftist city in Finland. Pondering over one’s political roots the series open up an unseen outlook on both the history and the present state of the labor movement. 

What makes us carry a flag? What are the revolutionary songs we write and sing today?
