Chaski Fest Benefit for Standing Rock
Jan 10, 2017 05:06PM
The World Conscious Pact presents Chaski Fest for Standing Rock at Danbury’s A Common Ground Community Arts Center on January 28 at 6pm. It’s a free concert to gather donations and raise awareness about the next steps regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
Attendees will hear first-hand accounts from those returning from Standing Rock, and enjoy live poetry by Danbury’s Atom Rush and traveling monk Atulananda Swami from Chile, followed by traditional sounds from the Ecuadorian Andes and more. The community is invited to enjoy the free public show to gather donations for Oceti Sakowin camp.
Energy Transfer Partners has vowed to complete the pipeline and 575 water protectors are still facing charges. As conscious community members, now is the time to stand in solidarity and learn how we can ensure the protection of water and sacred lands. The battle for water is not over yet; learn what’s ahead and how you can support water protectors.
Chaski is the indigenous Quechua word for messenger. Chaski Fests are worldwide gatherings of conscious artists and activists united as messengers for the rights of nature.
