Saturday, November 10
San Francisco Green Festival. Starhawk’s events are:
11:10 – 11:55 a.m.: Opening Water Ritual—also includes Rev. Ambrose (African American Christian/Green For All Fellow) and Wicahpiuta Candelaria (Ohlone/Apache singer/dancer).
Noon: “Sacred Activism: An Interfaith Dialogue on Creating a Just and Healthy Planet for All”
Panelists: Samina Faheem Sundas (American Muslim Voice), Starhawk (author of The Fifth Sacred Thing, The Spiral Dance), and Zelig Golden (Wilderness Torah).
Leaders of faith have worked to defend our planet and have seen all as sacred. In this time of cataclysmic change, people are looking deeply to discover that which compels them to stand up with courage for the well being of all—on behalf of life itself. This panel will awaken a dialogue about the power of spirit in action.
Look for Booksigning with Starhawk, mid-afternoon.
3:00 – 4:00 p.m “Upping the Ante to Defend People & Planet: The Role of Non-Violent Civil Disobedience”
Panelists: Dolores Huerta, Gopal Dayaneni, and Starhawk.
From Civil Rights to Labor and the Occupy movements, nonviolent civil disobedience has played a key role in changing the course of history. Where is it being employed effectively now, but not reported on? How do we address the issue of race and class privilege in regards to this tactic? Since we know we must up the ante, where will we find the courage to move from talk to action?
Also look for Starhawk at the Earth Activist Training booth—stop by and say hello.
