Meanwhile, in Barcelona

| February 14, 2012 | Reply

I’ve written before about Reverend Billy Talen. His latest action was in Barcelona:

About 80 people accompanied Reverend Billy and Savitri D – founders of the New York City based Church of Stop Shopping – to a political ritual, “Naked Grief” in the lobby of the Deutschebank in Barcelona’s Placa Catalunya at noon today. The action was organized with activists and artists of The Influencers Festival. After entering the bank lobby, the crowd began dramatically weeping. Savitri D disrobed, and as the Barcelonans around her cried, Reverend Billy implored the “God of Deutsche Bank” to stop investing in CO2 emitting coal-fired power plants. Eventually coal was poured over the head and shoulders of the “Naked Mother” as the crying crowd shouted “Earthalujah!”
