Funeral of the Wild – Trinidad and Iceland March – London – 27 October

Join us on a theatrical and interactive funeral march to mark the murder of Kárahnjúkar, Iceland, and the impending murder of the Cedros Peninsula, Trinidad, at the bloody hands of Alcoa and heavy industry.

Set in one of the financial capitals of todays Empire, this protest will mark the begining of the joint struggle against ALCOA and the heavy industrial invasion of both Iceland and Trinidad.

The four wildernesses in the Eastern Highlands of Iceland whose cheap death will power one aluminium smelter by the summer of 2007, are now either in the process of being flooded or are soon to be drained. The Cedros Peninsula of Trinidad will have much of its tropical rainforests cleared and hundreds of local residents outed to make way for two gas powered aluminium smelters.

If we are to be successfull in saving our lands from their plunder we must mobilise against the aluminium industry wherever it goes, wherever it destroys land, wherever it displaces peoples, wherever it mines, wherever it smelts, wherever it makes money; our struggle in Iceland is against the same beast as the struggle in Trinidad and Tobago.

Please bring musical instruments, anything appropriate to read out about the Iceland or Trinidad situation (a poem or a passage, etc), your family and friends, and of course your energy!
