(Save Pacifica Network Zipper Song – Make up your own verses!)

Chorus:Lovely Defend free speech radio

We shall not! We shall not be moved!
We shall not! We shall not be moved!
Just like a tree that’s standing by the water
We shall not be moved!

Tell Margy Wilkinson that she is not our boss!
Tell Margy Wilkinson that she is not our boss!
Just like a bull… let loose into a china shop
The Network could be lost!  (chorus)

Tell Brian E.T. to stop the power coup!
Tell Brian E.T. to stop the power coup!
Just like a bully…in a school yard fight!
This coup just ain’t right!  (chorus)

Tell Dan Siegel to not destabilize!
Tell Dan Siegel to not destabilize!
Just like a master… makes his dog back off
Dan Siegel, please be wise!  (chorus)

Tell Jose Fuentes, calm down and cool your jets!
Tell Jose Fuentes, calm down and cool your jets!
Just like a fool …does things that he regrets
Calm down and cool your jets!  (chorus)

This is not the way  to “Save KPFA”!
No! This is not the way  to “Save KPFA”!
Just like a despot… wants us to obey
This is not the way!  (chorus)

This is rash and reckless, and causes disarray!
This is rash and reckless, and causes disarray!
Just like a traitor… knows how to betray!
We will not obey! (chorus)

These are the lyrics of a song sung at the door of the Pacifica National Office on 4-03-14 in the third week of an occupation in support of Pacifica Executive Director Summer Reese. Her 3 year contract was “terminated” without notice to the Pacifica National Board at an illegal “executive rump session,” without a performance review or cause stated as per the contract, and after two years of solid service as interim Executive Director.  The action of the so-called “Save KPFA” clique threatens the financial well-being and organizational stability of the entire network.  As the song says, “This is not the way to “Save KPFA!”   The other four stations turned in their audited annual books.  But KPFA has refused to do so and this is causing great speculation about their financial integrity at this rogue branch where the power coup was led.  KPFA station and the Pacifica National Office are side-by- side on the same block on MLK Way.
