“I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed’, but I screwed him” “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me” Donald “She talks like a truck driver” Trump Depression Hotline Tour

Part of Be The Change: An Edwardian Tearoom Late

These award-winning wild anti-consumerist gospel shouters and Earth-loving urban activists return to the UK to spread their word. If you’re concerned about a world rife with global advertising, multinational control, climate change, packaging, supermarket domination, TV merchandising and all the rampant free marketeering epitomised by the US President, this is for you. If you’re not, this is REALLY for you!

The Church of Stop Shopping is a New York based secular political religion founded in 1999. Since “I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed’, but I screwed him” “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me” Donald “She talks like a truck driver” Trump, the Frankenstein of shopping culture, won – or stole the election, the church has been a repository of community anguish. Under the direction of Savitri D They have paraded, boycotted and protested while singing multiple harmonies. The choir has opened for Neil Young, been produced by Laurie Anderson, and hosted a benefit for Black Lives Matter with Joan Baez.
