Whose fist can punch the night

This is the only part of this poem I can remember can anyone tell me the rest, please?

"Who's fist can punch the night
Who's embrace can ensnare the moon......
...................and by who's authority is the silence broken.........
............Tell me all that has been done in the name of freedom
And all the lies told in the name of truth
Show me all the wars fought for peace
And I will show you the poverty of the many
And the power of the few"

No luck yet. Can you remember where and when you came accross it?

And the first lines should probably read:

"Whose fist can punch the night
Whose embrace can ensnare the moon"

Saw it on a poster - English Class wall 1974-79

Remembered some more:

"Who holds a mortgage on the air
Who grants a lisence to the clouds
And by whose authority is the silence broken...."
