Declaration of the Occupation with Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir
April 15, 2012 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir are activists, a New York City-based radical performance community with 50 performing members and a congregation in the thousands. They are wild anti-consumerist gospel shouters, earth loving urban activists who have worked with communities on four continents defending land, life and imagination from reckless development and the extractive imperatives of global capital. They employ multiple tactics and creative strategies, including cash register exorcisms, retail interventions, cell phone operas combined with grassroots organizing and media activism. They are entertainers and artists, performing regularly throughout the US and Europe.
