Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir will open for Neil Young tonight at the NYC-venue Jones Beach. From EcoWatch
EcoWatch: Wow, very exciting to be opening for Neil Young. Can you share with me how this gig came about?
Rev. Billy: Neil Young is breaking an American taboo, which is that famous celebrities do not name corporations who are criminal. Neil Young with his companion Daryl Hannah is naming Monsanto, Starbucks and Walmart and their Earth-killing behavior, as we in the Church of Stop Shopping have for many years. We are gratified that they have invited us onto their stage. Earthalujah!
EcoWatch: I know you’ve been working on a campaign against Monsanto for years. How did that start?
Rev. Billy: The Stop Shopping Choir are singing activists who began their life doing things like singing against the hordes of consumers at Macy’s front door on Black Friday, the doorbuster ritual. We see the religions of consumerism as, obviously, an ethical problem. But it is also a spirit-sucking zombie system. Monsanto’s Roundup is everywhere, and it causes cancer, birth defects and is a persistent toxin in our soil. Its toxin, glyphosate, is in our body tissue and blood. I think that anyone opposing the predations of retail companies based in the USA would eventually find their way to this criminal enterprise.
Neil Young + Promise of the Real will be performing tonight, July 21, 2015, on the Rebel Content Tour at Jones Beach Theater, Wantagh, NY.
