Solstice in the Streets and Related Features

San Francisco - June 20, 2012

Back by popular demand (plus we have a really great banner and hopefully some new puppets!), Solstice in the Streets brings a mix of festivity and activism to downtown San Francisco. We set the time this year for 3pm so folks could go from the action to the beach ritual without a long layover.

Gather 3pm at Embarcadero Plaza so we can be on the streets as the offices empty at the end of the workday.

Dress colorfully and comfortably including walking shoes. Bring musical instruments, masks, colorful streamers, pinwheels, etc.

Although we will visit and protest at some corporate or govt sites, we are not risking arrest. This is a family and youth-friendly action.

All are welcome - and join us at Ocean Beach at 7:30pm for the Solstice ritual - more info at

...Ending in a magical cone of power for the Earth and the rights of all.

Resting up for next time!.
