use my creativity to bring attention to women's rights
Clearly President Obama will prefer non-violence in any political demonstration. Demonstrations are about confronting wrong or immoral policies. How can we do both?
On Jasnuary 24th, the major BACORR protest for women's right in San Francisco will offer one method. Performing artists will line the Embarcadsero, performing alongside the anti-choice march, using creativity topromote the message of women's right.
The details are below. I'm not asking people to pledgeto attend in this tough economy, but rather top pledge to adopt a creative approch that will draw positive media attention.
From: Eric Schiller (firstname.lastname@example.org)
What: An exhibition of performing arts in conjunction with the BACORR protest against the anti-choice and anti-marriage march along the Embarcadero from Justin Herman Plaza to Marina Green. Artists will perform on the theme of oppression of women or the attempts by religious organizations to impose their “values” on our laws, especially on abortion and same-sex marriage.
Who: acoustic musicians, poets, comics, clowns, mimes, performance artists, painters, rappers, actors, sculptors and anyone who wishes to artistically express their support for equal rights for all.
Where: The sidewalks along Embarcadero from Justin Hermann Plaza to Marina Green.
When: Saturday, January 24 from 10 am onward
What you have to do: just let us know you are showing up. If the turnout is going to be huge, we’ll suggest a place for each performance, but for now it is first-come, first shown. The anti-choice march is expected to involve 15,000 people, along a long route. We suggest that artists bring cards with information about themselves and their websites, with something commemorating this historic protest. Give them away and you might find a new audience!
This is a great chance to show yourself to an audience that will include major national media. And we want everyone looking at you, not the marchers. Carpe Diem!
