On November 7, 2015, 2 PM to 8:30 PM, poets, speakers, and musicians will gather in San Francisco in collaboration and celebration on the theme Overthrowing Capitalism, organized by the Revolutionary Poets Brigade
We expect it to be a day filled with sophisticated and inspiring visions, insights, ideas, exposés, and analyses from artists, thinkers, and activists who are serious about the work ahead. Words that raise our consciousness to lead the world into a more cooperative society.
This century is issuing in an era of unprecedented planetary crises, and we have only a short time to transform these many looming disasters into a powerful movement for a constructive future. We call on all poets and all people to join us in making a revolutionary beginning, to reach deep into your center and bring forth the energies that can lead humanity and the natural world into a bright future, and we call on you all to become visionaries.
This event is also a book launch for a
new poetry anthology:
Volume Two: Beyond Endless War, Racist Police, Sexist Elites
edited by Jack Hirschman and John Curl. Poems to be read at this event.
