PRE – SPEACH: ||| INVOCATION ::::
Aloha Ke Akua!
Tonight! We are existing in a world we all want to live in!
Where music can be a part of the foundation for change in our lives
children of the earth
We’re in for supernovas people!
It’s time to paint our oppression twice over!
With color, poetry, movement, songs of change
KANE – WAHINE – KEIKI O KA AINA
NOW is the revival of emancipitory politics
New world connection to spirit.
WE must radically redefine the way we rally for change, people.
We are the ones introducing a new law of humanity and balance.
A new manifesto for a new time.
Greetings to the east and west.
Give us protection tonight at this celebration and gathering of the nations
Greetings to the north and the south.
We pray for a secure passageway into the future as we dance our asses off in sweaty, joyess ephipinies tonight.
Where my warrior people at?
We the youth, the spiritual and economicly concerned students of the world state this to the old paradigm:
You have perpetuated a gigantic fraud upon the last 7 generations.
We will not stand for this anymore in this new cycle of 7 generations.
You hide behind your religions, offices, and police – protected by your jargon and laws
While in the real world forests vanish, speices perish, water disappears, gmo free food becomes hard to find, and human lives are ruined and lost.
We convict you of gross negligence in the management of our planetary household.
We convict you of recklessly supporting the illusion of progress at the expense of human and environmental health!
You have done great harm, but your time is coming to an end.
Our spiritual revolution of new democracy, returning to the land and tribal mentality is underway.
So we say to you our people:
We have NOT LOST MOMENTUM.
We will have justice
We will have songs of change
We will have our tribal democracy
We will be GREATER than fossil fuels.
We will have our paradigm clash
We will have our moment of truth
We will have our spiritual battles
We will have our collective a ha
We will have our barter economies
We will change the world one fucking hug at a time
We will decolonize our imaginations
We will remember our native tounges
We will build a bridge
And cross it!
We will end the idea of the end and occupy the NOW.
We will survive and flourish because when things get tough – we take care of eachother.
We will have our righteous uprising in song and dance!
We will paint the walls of babylon with all the colors of the rainbow
And out of each will come a new economics – holisitic, human scale, and open.
In village after village, country after country, campus after campus,
We will apply our liberation agenda to the new spiritual world
And in the months and years to come we will chase the old goats out of power
And we will RETURN TO THE SOURCE OF LIGHT.
ARE WE READY for a true and radical transformation to happen?
THIS IS OUR CRITICAL MASS!
THIS IS US DREAMING DANGEROUSLY!
THIS IS SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY!
THIS IS GRACE UNDER PRESSURE!
Friends, comrades, allies, ohana – WE ARE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR.
