Vigil/Ritual
Organizer/Author:
Location Details:
State Office Building, front steps 505 Van Ness Avenue San Francisco, California

note: day has been changed due to state holiday: so now it really feels like we are on the set of a surreal action movie starring a violent, super-macho lead. With people all around us supposedly voting for someone who speaks fondly of Adolf Hiltler and shoving women's heads in toilets and immigrant-bashing and hummers, what is there left to do? Cry in!!!!! Maybe the only way for things to get better is for us to start being real with each other, to stop trying to fit ourselves into this plot of violence, machines, and no feeling. Cry In!!!!! It's an invitation to cry for the people who will suffer, for the manipulation of the public, for the devastating alienation and cynicism and fear and hopelessness that got the Terminator elected. To express what we feel together instead of swallowing it individually. Cry in!!!! we don't have to be ashamed to feel hurt, scared, anxious and outraged. We don't need a state of action movie heros. Let's put our real feeling out in public, where it belongs. Cry In!!!!! In the end, it's an act of hope....in releasing pain we can start to build from a real foundation. It is a revolutionary act, the opposite of an action movie. This is serious. Meet on the steps of the state building, 1pm Monday, Oct.13, and let it all out. This is focused on crying, on release, not on violence to ourselves or others. Please come ready as possible to be real,and to help others feel safe at this event, and in our state. state building: State Office Building 505 Van Ness Avenue San Francisco, California PLEASE FORWARD////DISTRIBUTE!!! 1.
