Anti-Trump/Anti-Fascist Dance Party (Portland)
February 10, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
With all the political chaos going on now, there is a lot of stress.
I think it is time to not only protest but gather to just have some fun and get out some of the tension by dancing together.
This is a Queer-friendly, kid-friendly, All-inclusive, Anti-sexist, Anti-racist, Anti-fascist gathering to dance away the hate generated from Trump & co. Please come and get down to some radical beats.
Feel free to bring drums, shakers and other music-makers and we can make our own music and chants in addition to the boom-box songs.
I have a boom box but am looking for a better sound system. If anyone has one to offer, please let me know. I am also looking for good dance songs with a resistance/revolutionary or anti-fascist theme or anything with a good beat that is about love not hate is welcome. I will bring some of my cds and hope others can bring more and please comment below with any suggestions or favorite songs you would like to include.
This is February in Maine so please wear warm clothing since it will likely be chilly. Dancing should warm us up a bit hopefully though. I am probably going to wear my rainbow peace flag as a cape. And if you have a pink hat or a rainbow flag or a wearable sign that you can dance with this would be great. But no need to bring anything.
I truly hope to see a whole bunch of folks there. Let’s show them how much fun we can have! Peace Love & Solidarity !
