Phil Och's "What are you fighting for", Dylan and 'Blowin' in the Wind'.
Talking about Guthrie, Arlo this time - Alice's Restaurant Massacree.
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - Ohio.
Edwin Starr's 'War'.
The Doors - 'The Unknown Soldier'.
The sixties was a best era for protest songs but lots of you young'uns probably haven't heard of most of them.

Even the Stones 'Gimme Shelter'.

A couple of Aussie ones from later on - the Oils 'Beds are Burning' and No Doubt's 'Just a Girl'.

While they are good, I still think the earlier ones were better.

Apparently Green Day's 'American Idiot' is making a comeback too.
Originally about Bush, it would seem it is also befitting someone else.

Speaking of being only 19...

Similar sentiments from an earlier war. I don't think Eric Bogle thought he was writing protest songs, but his lyrics are certainly anti-war, which are protests in themselves:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1VD84SLW8I

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG48Ftsr3OI

Actually, I know Eric Bogle never categorised either song as "protest songs" - if that is a category of music. A dear friend of mine of 50+ years standing toured with Eric on and off for almost a decade as guitarist and backing vocals. He gave me an insight to Eric Bogle. Difficult guy to work with, but a powerful songwriter.

PS: One more. A different theme, with my mate appearing. Protest song? I don't know. Probably.

Funny... The first link to Public Enemy, "Fight the Power" has a big ad across it: "Building the economy, securing your future - LIBERAL".
