On the Summer Solstice, rise up in Philadelphia’s streets and gardens for the “Longest Day (of Action) of the Year!” Shine a light on biotech and pharmaceutical hotspots in central Philadelphia and spark non-violent resistance to business as usual at BIO 2005. Help us mobilize: come to action spokescouncils June 18th to 20th!
On June 21st in the Northern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice is the first day of Summer. It’s also the longest day of the year, with more hours of sunlight than any other day. Since ancient days, the Summer Solstice has been a time for tribal gatherings, rituals of renewal and transformation, and celebrations of natural fertility. Activists from the Pagan Cluster will be present in Philly to facilitate a spirit of connection with these primal roots and natural rhythms, as we act for a future without corporate greed, environmental destruction, genetic pollution, and biotech patents on the DNA essence of life!
