May 20: The Human Micropoem @ NATO Rally

You are invited to participate in

from 11am-12pm
at the corner of Jackson & Columbus
(on the sidewalk)

Bring one poem 5 minutes in length to be read aloud
or just come & be part of the chorus -- all welcome!

The Human Micropoem is a call and response choral form utilizing the human microphone at the occupy movements to amplify the speaker's words by those listening. The speaker says a line and then everyone who can hear repeats it.

This event is part of the March and Rally to Protest NATO
Join in a legal, permitted, family-friendly march and rally!  Starting at noon at Petrillo Bandshell, the Iraq Veteran's Against the War (IVAW) will be marching with us in solidarity. At the end of the march, within sight and sound of McCormick Place, members of IVAW will conduct the closing ceremony where they will return their medals to NATO. It will be a moving event, and not to be missed.
