Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir is a radical performance community based in New York City. Our non-profit is Immediate Life.

We are at a showdown.

We live in the Sixth Great Extinction of all life on Earth. Insecticides threaten the global food supply. GMOs choke out organic agriculture. Our story is the Star Wars of the environmental struggle.

Monsanto is our villain, the instrument of death that breeds GMOs and soaks seeds in neonicotinoid insecticides. Bayer, Syngenta and the United States government are Monsanto’s nefarious cohorts.

The Honey Bees are our heroes.

We are going to Saint Louis, the global headquarters of Monsanto...

and the offices of the corporate factory farming GMO regime leaders.

We must unleash that part of ourselves that we've held quietly in reserve, that collection of courage. Anybody hear me?

Let's be too outlandish to be called mere "protesters."

Our nonviolent direct actions will be so dramatic that people will shout out, “How will the bees get back to their hive?” “And how will I survive?”

Who is Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir?
