Activists The Yes Men & Sabrina Artel To Be Sainted by Reverend Billy 4/17
This Sunday Reverend Billy and the Church of Earthalujah will honor New-York based corporate impersonators The Yes Men and award winning performer and the creator and host of Trailer Talk, Sabrina Artel with canonization into Fabulous Sainthood.
The Yes Men are a group who use any means necessary to agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, and then smuggle out the stories of their undercover escapades to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of big business. The stories are often both shocking and hilarious.
For the last eight years, Sabrina has been traveling the country with her 1965 radio-equipped BeeLine travel trailer and bringing us stories from that last bastion of authentic first-amendment democracy - the kitchen table. Trailer Talk, the weekly radio show that she produces from recorded interviews at events and Main Streets across the country, combines theater, activism and broadcast journalism where critical information is disseminated. She lives on the Shale in the Catskills of NY in Sullivan County, the epicenter of the fracking infiltration by the gas industry. Companies like Halliburton threaten the reservoirs that provide NYC's drinking water. With The Frack Talk Shale Project, the Trailer Talk team addresses this Devil! - leasing land for energy extraction from the natural gas in the Marcellus Shale.
