Which side are you on: Join GEM/Real Reformers in Song at the PEP

Going to PEP Meeting Thursday?

Join the GEM "Real Reformers" tomorrow  at the PEP, here are the lyrics and music on you tube: 

Print out some copies and pass it along. Imagine if the entire audience rose up and sang together. The UFT has been sent the lyrics and hopefully will be on board.

Which side are you on

Gather round good teachers
Listen to my tale
Of how the ole DOE
Put our schools up for sale

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

In nations the world over
Teacher unions rise
Its time in NYC
To open up our eyes

which side are you on. . .

Calling all stakeholders
Hold those stakes up high
Drive them right into the heart
Of the plan to privatize

which side are you on. . .

Come down to new york city
And look us in the eyes
Either you want community schools
Or you want to privatize

They want to close our schools down
They say our time has come
We will struggle, for our rights
Until this fight is won
