All united, all as one, let's make a stand. We've got a privilege in the power that we command. So let's not drown in ignorance and let our strength waste away. As the richest nation in the world, we've got a responsability.

Vieques, puerto rico, a protectorate - of the USA. Part a home to native families, the rest... A navy bombing range! Shells misfired kill civilians there, and napalm hangs in the island air. But the government beats down protests against this misuse.

Chorus: So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it no one's going to. So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it no one's going to.

I look into the eyes, of a dead island boy's face. His remind me of another's, from different time and place. Wehre A-bombs baked the ground, on Bikini's tropical lands. Where a culture was erased, families misplaced, by a Nazi-esque like plan!

Chorus: All done, in your name, by Uncle Sam. So if we don't fight it - then we're guilty too! So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it, no one's going to.

I think it's about time that we had a change. I think it's about time that we make a change.

    General CommentIt's sad that this is exactly what's happening in Vieques. I'm from Puerto Rico, it's been over a year with constant protest and still, U$A doesn't care. I hope something will be done!

    General Commentits sad but true...we need to stop things like this from happening. we say our country is just.....but is it? i dont think so. we say we are civilized....but we have acted like savages in war. we say we learned from the past.....but *history repeats itself.* lose the government.

    General Commentit sucks that so many people are blind to the things the government does, how can people support and vote for a president that says he wants peace and unity, but yet he "tries yo achieve peace and unity" by starting a war.

    General Commentyou know whats amazing is that you would never hear about vieques or anything remotely similar to it on the news in AMERICA. its all over the place in other countries, but noone has even heard of vieques. how many people were arrested protesting? even fucking celebrities.. ricky martin! down there protesting.. and nothing. noone knows that it even happened. then the us pulls the whole naval station out of puerto rico out of spite... and takes away a primary source of revenue. goddamnfuckingamericangoverningwhores. fuck you.
