BERKELEY CALLING BLOG APRIL 15, 2015 BY TRUTH TROUBADOUR. “NO NUKE BLUES FUKUSHIMA UPDATE” Video Released by Vic Sadot. Lyrics, photos, and links! Hit the text or the photo to link to the blog!
The original “No Nuke Blues” was written in 1979 about the Three Mile Island accident on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The song was updated with a verse about the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 in the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately, a new verse needed to be written in 2011 about the ongoing Fukushima nuclear catastrophe in Japan. This version has Vic Sadot on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano accordion. Eric Golub plays violin. This recording was done in Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley, CA with Sammy Fielding as sound engineer.
Here’s the Fukushima update verse:
They say earthquakes and tidal waves messed up the best of plans!
There are deadly radiation leaks from Fukushima in Japan!
Contamination’s spreading through the land, the air, and sea!
It’s time to put an end to this insane nuke industry!

We have chosen a Vic Sadot music video to embed below titled “BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON” at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. The song was released on 9/11/11, the same day that this vicsadot.com website was launched. The song was on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which is available at CD Baby as one of three Vic Sadot CD releases there.
BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON by Vic Sadot at Truth Troubadour Channel. This song was released on 9/11/11 on the 10th anniversary of the treasonous 9/11 false flag operation on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which remains available in Vic Sadot’s CD Baby pages. It is Vic’s third release made by Discmakers and posted at CD Baby.
Blowback or Bloody Treason was created after reading Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert, the former LA narcotics detective who blew the whistle on CIA drug running and later became a 9/11 whistle-blower. “We need a great detective’s logic! Forensic facts & laws of physics! Not leaps of faith! Just steps to reason! Was it blowback or bloody treason?”
“STANDING ON THE SIDE OF LOVE” – Free Chelsea Manning! BERKELEY CALLING BLOG AT BLOGSPOT – Stand on the side of love, truth, justice, and peace!
COURAGE TO RESIST.ORG Plans a Speaking Tour for CHELSEA MANNING Attorney DAVID COOMBS, including an Oakland event at Humanist Hall, 390 – 27th Street, Oakland CA 94612 on Monday, Dec 9 at 6:30 pm! Activists call for unity on principles behind a heroic war-crimes whistle-blower like Bradley/Chelsea Manning, including Manning’s right to her identity.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple, Alice Walker, released a statement denouncing the 35 year sentence and praising Chelsea Manning’s humanism.
Singer-songwriter Vic Sadot updated his song titled “Courage To Resist” to refer to Manning in the feminine as requested. The song has been recorded and posted on SoundCloud as a full length listen and download with share options at the link that is provided in this BERKELEY CALLING Blog.
Berkeley Fellowship of UU’s SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE issued The “STANDING ON THE SIDE OF LOVE” Resolution calling for resolute support for Chelsea Manning for her identity rights in addition to a reinvigorated defense of her public service in upholding the laws of the land by her commendable effort to expose war crimes and cover-ups. The chat room logs that led to Manning’s arrest show that Private Manning was motivated to uphold the law by exposing war crimes and cover-ups because he/she feared that an uninformed citizenry would be ill-fit to govern a democracy. After years of extraordinarily cruel techniques on Manning, including sensory deprivations such as sleep or light, and being exposed to extremes in temperatures in a cell with no blankets or clothing, as well as long stretches in solitary confinement, the military tribunal gave the patriotic whistle-blower a 35 year prison sentence. Meanwhile, all the war criminals all go free!
