The anthem of the Paris branch of the NUJ. It was written after a couple of French trade unionists wandered up to our freshly-unfurled NUJ banner at a Parisian demo (I can’t remember which: perm one from 157) and enquired of our assembled horde of perhaps four: ‘mais, c’est quoi le Nooj?’ You can almost hear the Gallic shrug. The song attempts to answer this excellent and surprisingly complex question.
