BP Spill Funeral 9/4/10 Addendum to Events Calendar

Posted by admin on Sep 1, 2010 in Actions, Local Social Action

Forwarded by War Resister’s League: this Saturday September 4th, a local activist has planned a public funeral dirge on the sidewalks of downtown Asheville. This procession is to honor the loss of human and animal life caused by the BP Oil Spill. The devastation of truth in media, the devastation caused to our environment from oil corporations, and the horrible reality of the diminishing wetlands, are all impetus for this funeral to exist. This event is open to the public. It is asked that you dress in black. Black veils along with black armbands will be provided if you want them. They have made cardboard coffins painted black with stenciled images of pelicans, dolphins, and sea turtles. The hope for inviting the Western North Carolina community to participate in this funeral is to create solidarity amongst one another and to be given an opportunity to acknowledge the death and damage delivered to our Gulf coast.
Meet at the Sean Pace Gallery, 5 Walnut Street, suite 102, (four doors up from Scully’s) 11:30 am, plan to walk at Noon. A simple route through and around downtown is planned. Should not take longer then an hour. Pets are welcome.
