100 THOUSAND POETS FOR CHANGE
Open Mike Poetry Reading at Red Bluff Park of Study & Reflection
As part of the worldwide initiative “100 Thousand Poets for Change” (http://www.100TPC.org), the local group Poets for a New Spirituality is hosting an open mike poetry reading at Red Bluff Park of Study and Reflection, on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 7pm. Local poets and members of the public are invited to read poetry or short prose (five minutes max) on the theme the Change – which will include topics of social, environmental, political, spiritual or personal change required for this planet to move toward a Universal Human Nation characterized by peace and sustainability.
The September 24th, marks the largest poetry event in history, with 600 events in 450 cities and 95 countries to date. Poetry demonstrations are being organized in such political hotspots as Madison, Wisconsin and Cairo, Egypt as well as in strife-torn Kabul and Jalalabad.
In the United States over 250 events are planned so far, including protests in North Carolina against cuts in education funding and a demonstration along the Platte River in Nebraska against the planned TransCanada tar sands pipeline.
All events will be documented on the 100 Thousand Poets for Change website, and all documentation will be archived by Stanford University, which has recognized 100 Thousand Poets for Change as an historical event, the largest poetry reading in history.
The Open Mike Poetry Reading for Change will be held at Red Bluff Park, located at 13499 HWY 99E, on the south side of the highway between Salt Creek and Salt Creek Overflow, just east of Hwy. 36 to Mt. Lassen. Use caution when entering and leaving as traffic moves swiftly.
Red Bluff Park of Study and Reflection (http://www.RedBluffPark.org) is part of a worldwide network of parks inspired by the teachings of Silo, spiritual Guide of the Andes. Serving as sanctuaries for all who seek meaning in life, the Parks are beacons of the coming Universal Human Nation.
