Thu Apr 26 2012This Land Is Your Land: Singing from Coast to Coast
Thu Apr 26 2012San Francisco and New York in Sync for Earth Day 2012
On April 22nd, Patricia Jackson wrote: "If you rambled down to Civic Center Sunday, you might have thought the crowd and the booths could just be another average day event. Then you saw a Whiskey Dome Cycle, a seal made out of all that garbage that gets thrown in the ocean, and the Luvevolution Bus. There was Green Peace and Earth Island Institute — and that was your clue. Earth Day San Francisco, 2012.
"Forty-two years ago, on the first earth day 20 million people participated in activities across the country. So many people came to Washington D.C. that both houses of Congress shut down in awe of the response. That people’s movement brought passage of the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
"At exactly noon today we stood in the warm sun of San Francisco and connected to rainy-day New York City for a sync up singing of Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land. On stage to lead us in song – Country Joe MacDonald, Occupella, Freedom Song Network, Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus, La Pena Chorus, Jello Biafra, Liliana Herrera, ReSisters, Hali Hammer, and Christiana Johnson as our sign language interpreter, Will Scarlett with a harmonica solo, and you could feel the joy."
