Yes its true the Reverend Billy is coming to East London
Who he? A real reverend from the Church of Life After Shopping.
The Death Of The East End Funeral Procession!
Meet Midday (sharp)
Starbucks Spitalfields Market.
Sunday 31st May
We will be holding a funeral procession from the Starbucks in the historic East End.
An area of diversity, clashing cultures and independence, the East End of London has long been a haunt of artists, vagabonds, misfits, anarchists and rippers! However with the spread of global capitalism, and the homogenised pseudo-counter culture that it markets, companies such as Starbucks now feel comfortable hawking their unethical wares on our doorsteps, traditional cafes are replaced with watered down impressions of some terrible episode of Friends.
The Reverend Billy, The Church Of Life After Shopping, The Space Hijackers and Rhythms Of Resistance ask you to join us in a funeral procession through brick lane ending in a sermon and street party.
Wear your black Sunday best, bring home made cakes, thermos flasks of tea, bunting and coffins. Bring dancing shoes and rhyming slang. Let us rise up to the invasion of the bland, let us show these unfair traders that their business is not welcome!
If your planning to come – let me know – I will be filming throughout
