Saturday, September 17: Barnard Unitarian Church, 4pm
Sunday, September 18: Woodstock Universalist Church, 4pm
The once and future Vermont Republic.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
[A community exercise in liberation theology; an exorcism of thousands of years of patriarchal spirituality; a call to consciousness and commitment; a classical protest panorama; an ecosocialist reinterpretation of the biblical creation myth; music against mass extinction and for Mother Earth, against the pipelines and for the Pachamama; with influences ranging from Bach to hip hop to chacarera.]
Donations will be collected to send to the Front Line Water Protectors now fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline and defending the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.
P.S. A goodly number of the participants in this community production also participated in the First North American Ecosocialist Convergence in Barton and Glover, Vermont, August 2012. Read a report of that gathering here…
P.P.S. Ecosocialist Horizons appeared before at the Barnard Unitarian Church in February 2014, with the “Red Black and Green Revolutionary Eco-Music Tour.” See the short documentary about this performance here… (by local film-maker and “First Seven Days” choir member Anne Macksoud)
