Rev Billy and Stop Shopping Choir visit PDX

On Oct 7th the good Rev and choir graced us with their spirit! They ended up using my bike as a keyboard stand lol.



Prepare to be shaken, stirred and served neat on a bed of hot coals.

Exorcise the devil Monsanto from Portland's public parks.

Listen to the glorious birdsong of The Stop Shopping Choir. Join the citizen weed pulling brigade.

Watch what happened when we exorcised Monsanto from Chicago.

Roundup is the most popular herbicide in the world, it's active ingredient is a "probable" carcinogen known as glyphosate. Roundup is routinely sprayed in Portland's public parks. The single most effective alternative to glyposates is NO glyphosates. The Earth Wants YOU!

What would Jesus Buy? was one of the first docs I saw when I started really investigating the path of simplicity/alternative living, really helped illuminate the sickness of rabid consumerism.
