Holly Brewer and M@ McNiss have been writing and performing solution oriented sociopolitical music together since 2k2.Since 1308 The Folks Below Communicate
There has been a call for:
”A separation of the wheat from the chaff”
The age old, tried and true Silent March.
- It is much easier to see who is not participating in a silent march; because they are not silent ie. breaking shit and general suck-baggery.
- The march will inherently be more peaceful because people are reflecting on their motivations very clearly (time to think).
- Our message will still “Get Across” boundaries because our words are held high above our heads. We made the signs that speak for us.
- Our message will be more “un-fuck-withable” with 2k people marching silently. The silence can be deafening, the message peaceful and urgent.
We hope #Occupiers will bring this up as a viable solution to our growing problem at the next GA everywhere.
That’s all we have to say for now.
Love - HUMANWINE
"One thousand and one of us
all and all surrounded on all sides
holding on to our signs
holding our words high
high as we can
let the cameras see
see us on our way
away in chains
Support Support your right to report!
You have a right to be here!
You have the right!”
- 1st Amendment, HUMANWINE
We Recognize. We love. We Care. We Learn. We March. We sit, We stand, We Occupy.
Silent March, Harlem, 1917 to Protest Race Murders in East St. Louis
Been hearing about ACTA lately?
ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is a trade Agreement not a bill that is being voted on.
ACTA is a treaty and The U.S. signed onto (well a small group of people posing as all of us, in secret, signed on for you and me; awww so sweet of them) October 1, 2001 in Tokyo.
Canada, the European Union and Switzerland joined the preliminary talks throughout 2006 and 2007.
Official negotiations began in June 2008, with Australia, Mexico,… Morocco, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea and Singapore joining the talks.
Apart from the participating governments, an advisory committee of large US-based multinational corporations was consulted on the content of the draft treaty, including the International Intellectual Property Alliance,
(which includes the Business Software Alliance,
Motion Picture Association of America,
and Recording Industry Association of America)
and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.
The treaty calls for the creation of an “ACTA committee” to MAKE AMENDMENTS for which PUBLIC or JUDICIAL REVIEW are NOT REQUIRED.
Industry representatives may have “consultatory input” to amendments.
A 2009 Freedom of Information request showed that the following companies also received copies of the draft under a nondisclosure agreement: Google, eBay, Intel, Dell, News Corporation, Sony Pictures, Time Warner, and Verizon.
United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea
Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland and the United States
Finalized English version of the Agreement:
Here’s a simple version
We are simultaneously recording a handful of songs (out of 22 or so) while working on the set for the Zombie March After Party in Cambridge (Boston Area) at the end of the week on 5/28. We thought it was too much to take on but everything is going swimmingly. We will begin a USTREAM of it as soon as we can get a handle on the tech side of things.
I know. I am disappointed in myself for not getting there this year.
If you were granted instant perfection in any one skill, would you take it? If yes, what skill would it be?
yes. I would like to know every single language that has ever been invented in the entire universe please.
I never have to fight boredom for some reason it just doesn’t seem to find me.
