EXORCISM of a TOXIN: You are Invited
Reverend Billy's tweet today announces a great example of his socially inciteful antics. I'd like to share it with you. He states, "There is no Scenic Area with the Sweeping Grandeur of a Monsanto-free Local Park!"
The Reverend fiddles with the spelling of the chemical responsible for Roundup's lethal power that is guaranteed to decimate unwelcome plants. He transforms GLYPHOSATE to GLYPHO-SATAN! As Satan, the chemical is eligible for exorcism to thwart its power over the ecosystem.
The history of glyphosate is brief. Farmers quickly adopted it because Monsanto made it possible to kill weeds in a sweeping, undirected application because they also developed Roundup Ready crops that resisted the herbicide. Suddenly, farmers were granted the ability to kill the weeds without killing the crops.
In 2007, glyphosate was the most used herbicide in the United States' agricultural sector and the second-most used in home and garden, government and industry, and commerce. A 100 fold increase between 2007 and 2016 is largely explained by an irony Monsanto could not have anticipated - the emergence of glyphosate-resistant weeds!
Talen is invited the public to attend this exorcism:
Exorcism of Toxins From Prospect Park
WHEN:July 29, 2016 at 6pm - 8pm
WHERE: 9th St & Prospect Park W
HOW WILL YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE? Look for Rev and Savi and the Choir and Zen & the Moms in hazmat suits with grotesque-looking spraying devices.
This event is part of an on-going series in Reverend Billy's divine rectory: US MAPPING OF POISONED PARKS & PLAYGROUNDS. It consists of spraying addresses into the interactive map, so that a red skull-and-crossbones can show where the glyphosate is. Billy explains, "We just got Houston's spraying information in a big box at the post office, oh The Lake of Hellfire of that terrible sad oil-town...:
There will be a Pre-Exorcism Training. Be prepared to wear haz mat suits and pantomime killing children with spraying wands.
