A star-studded reading on Thursday...

But it will be even more star-studded if you're there, darling...

STRIKE! Igniting the Fuse of Possibility
Thursday, May 1, doors open @ 7 pm / performance begins @ 7:30
First Unitarian Universalist Church
1187 Franklin Street at Geary
San Francisco, CA
Admission: $12.00 @ door

Join City Lights and friends for an evening of narratives that cut through the core of the neo-liberal agenda

30 local poets, performers, fiction writers, playwrights, and musicians deliver 3 minute pieces offering imaginative responses to the hunger of global capital and its effects upon community

STRIKE addresses strategies of resistance. We pose the question: what serves as meaningful resistance in an age of disaster capitalism? We shall explore the liberation of the commons- through poetry, performance, music, and magic.
