Location Details:
Farmer's Market

Join us next Wednesday starting at 4pm in a rousing drum circle chorus of that old civil rights-era spiritual "Fuck the Police State." Trash Orchestra and the Trash Orchestra Auxiliary Brigade will be there.

Oh, you're part of the Auxiliary Brigade, by the way. Read on.

This time, I suggest everyone come out. Leave your ID at home and if they ask for your ID simply refuse. At that point, they can cite you as a John or Jane Doe, or will be obligated to arrest 50 drummers for violating the parking lot panic lot. It'll take every cop car in town.

And in the meantime, we'll drag every shopper in the market over to witness the fun.

Come to the Know Your Rights workshop at 1pm on Saturday at Pacific and Cooper and we'll discuss this and more.

Spread the motha fuckin' word. Bring a pot or pan or barrel or pucket and something to bang on it with.


Cacerolazo
From Wikipedia

Cacerolazo is the name of a popular form of protest that consists in a group of people creating noise by banging pots, pans and other utensils in order to call for attention.

The word comes from Spanish cacerola, which means "stew pot". The derivative suffix -azo denotes a hitting (punching or striking) action, and has been extended metaphorically to any sort of shock demonstration.
