Maine Taxes, War and Peace

Likely one of the first outdoor lunchtime concerts in Portland this season, Fire in the Commons will play original songs that take inspiration from Pete Seeger, Violeta Parra, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Emma’s Revolution, Will I Am and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Their lyrics cover topics such as climate change, war, peace, diversity, immigration, consumerism, hope, community building and ecological stewardship. The event is part of 20 Maine actions on or around war tax resistance day (4/17/18). Stay from 12:40pm-1pm to hear and connect with a member of Black Lives Matter, and representatives of Veterans for Peace and other social justice organizations.
