Water is Life Flash Mob

  • Legislative Buildings-Victoria B.C. Victoria, British Columbia V8W (map)

"Stand Up for What you Love" Red Hot Rally on Tuesday, February 14th. A coalition of about 12 environmental groups is organizing a huge rally to coincide with the opening of the Legislature and Throne Speech Day. We are invited to come together to sing the beautiful song Water is Life/Mni Wiconi, by Sara Thomsen!  
"This song is inspired by and in tribute to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all the tribes, nations, native and non-native people coming together to protect the land and water threatened by the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The song came to me on my return from Standing Rock. That morning before leaving, a meadowlark was singing right outside my tent. "Be a lark from the meadow. Be a lark from this meadow," I heard it sing. We, too, can be larks from the meadow. We, too, can sing in the new day."
You can learn the song through the following link: http://echoesofpeace.org/water-is-life
We will be singing the song as it is in the sheet music that you can find on the website, in the key of D.
More details to follow! If you are planning to attend and sing, please indicate on FB that you're going so you can receive updates and more information about particulars! ♥
