SOLIDARITY WITH OUR CHILEAN SISTERS
@ EarthChxrch
36 Ave C. (@ East 3rd st.) NYC
Sunday March 19, 2023, 3pm.

Nunca más sin nosotras. Never again without us. This week we honor some of the women who participated in the democratic process of drafting a new constitution for Chile. Loreto Vidal, Alejandra Flores, Loreto Vallejos, Vanessa Hoppe, Margarita Vargas, Malucha Pinto and Lorena Céspedes will join us this Sunday at Earth Chxrch as we express our gratitude for their efforts and celebrate their dedication to this epic collective work, that unfortunately did not get ratified by the Chilean people. We wonder with them how to continue organizing despite these setbacks. Come share songs and food in solidarity. Changealujah!

Reverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Choir
presented by Southern Rep Theatre

Saturday, April 06, 2019 at 10:00 pm
Sunday, April 07, 2019 at 7:30 pm

Southern Rep Theatre
2541 Bayou Rd
New Orleans
LA 70119 USA

Earthalujah! The world-traveling radical performers, Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir are coming to New Orleans, just in time for festival season.

Recently sharing stages with Pussy Riot, Yothu Yindi, Joan Baez and Neil Young, the award-winning and often arrested activist-entertainers will host a late-night party-show at Southern Rep at 10 PM Saturday April 6th.

Then, on Sunday April 7 at 7:30 PM also at Southern Rep the troupe will stage their gospel concert for the Earth. Part political rally, part comedy show about an Elvis-impersonator televangelist and his choir, part church service of the Earth faith: whatever the Church of Stop Shopping is – it's a movement to rise to the occasion of the Earth’s crisis. As activists, they have faced down Monsanto and Bayer, climate-change financiers like Chase Bank and UBS, and mountaintop removal coal-mining and pipe-lines.
