We’re having a Block (Alton Gas) Party at the Treaty Truckhouse!
Sept 9, 1pm… with Hip-hop artists Lee Reed and Testament from Test Their Logik, and local Spoken Word star El Jones. All proceeds from the show and the penny auction will go towards Mi’kmaq-led frontline resistance to the Alton Gas project. This is a great excuse to visit and support the Treaty Truckhouse, which has been blocking the project’s front gate for 100 days!
Friends of Treaty Camp present a Hip-Hop FUNdraiser in support of the Stop Alton Gas! movement:
El Jones – https://eljoneslyrics.wordpress.com/
Spoken Word Artist, Political and Social Justice Activist, Contributor to the Halifax Examiner and so much more! Halifax’s former Poet Laureate puts power in her truths and offers an impactful voice for the many who aren’t able to speak for themselves.
Testament – https://testtheirlogik.bandcamp.com/
“It has been difficult to choose a favorite track, they all have a great message, each has its place and a meaning for peoples lives.”
Lee Reed – https://leereed.bandcamp.com/
“With a microphone, 2 turntables, a falafel sandwich and a cadre of super-elite ninja rap practitioners, Reed creates and performs hip-hop that pulls back the curtain and pisses on the power supply. a vocal documentary of our bloated, mother-earth eating culture and its rapid freefall into the gaping mouth of hell. And stuff like that. ”
