April 10th ‘Stop Nuclear Power Plants! Global Action Day’

April 8, 2011


As we announced earlier today, we will be meeting at the corner of Guy and de Maisonneuve (across from the Guy Metro) by the Norman Bethune statue starting at 11:00 am on Sunday, April 10!  Please join us!

We will gather there to express our solidarity with folks participating in the No Nuke street protest in Koenji in Tokyo.  Even if you can’t make it or live far away from Montréal or one of the other places (like Berlin, Rennes, Miami, Phoenix, New York and elsewhere) where solidarity demos are being held, please send a solidarity message to the protest organizers in Tokyo at 410nonuke[at]gmail.com.

We wanted to prepare a song for our demo, using a familiar tune that many people might know.  Here are the lyrics (sung to the tune of “Help” by The Beatles).  Click here if you want to practice with a karaoke version.

If you can play this tune on an instrument, please bring your instrument to the demo to give us some live accompaniment!

Help!  We need somebody.

Help!  Not just anybody.

Help!  We need everybody now!

When we were younger, so much younger than today,

Never wanted nukes to come along in any way.

And now the reactor’s blown, you’re not so self-assured.

Now it’s time to solidarify* and tear the monster down.

Help us if you can, let’s tear it down!

Radiation’s everywhere; it’s all around!

Help us get the nukes right out of town!

Won’t you please, please help us!

And now the planet’s harmed in o! so many ways.

Our independence seems to vanish in the haze.

But now the time has come to try another way.

We need each other now to live another day.

Help us if you can; let’s tear it down!

Radiation’s everywhere; it’s all around!

Help us get the nukes right out of town!

Won’t you please, please help us!

When we were younger, so much younger than today,

Never wanted nukes to come along in any way

And now the reactor’s blown, you’re not so self-assured.

Now it’s time to solidarify* and tear the monster down!

Help us if you can, let’s tear it down!

Radiation’s everywhere; it’s all around!

Help us get the nukes right out of town!

Won’t you please, please help us!

(Help us, no nu~~kes!)
