Performance @ Market Five for Spirit Fundraiser

Friday, June 17th, 2005

The GPI performed tonight at the Market Five Gallery near Eastern Market for a fundraiser to help raise money for Spirit, a mother of 3, vocalist, songwriter, and Steering Committee member of the Child Care and Housing advocacy group of Empower DC. She planned to travel to Cuba on the Venceremos (We Shall Overcome) Brigade and help support the movement there.

In 1969, a coalition of young people formed the Venceremos Brigade, as a means of showing solidarity with the Cuban Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers and challenging U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the economic blockade and our government’s ban on travel to the island. The first Brigades participated in sugar harvests and subsequent Brigades have done agricultural and construction work in many parts of the island.

The DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency (GPI) is an anti-authoritarian, collaborative, pro-humanity artists' collective incorporating music, rhythm, spoken word, community and resistance.
