DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency at Operation Ceasefire
Vintage footage of the original cast and crew of the DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency from 2005. “Brick by brick is how we get things done…” In this clip, we were opening for Joan Baez, Sweet Honey and The Rock, and Thievery Corporation. Performing: (Poets) Jessica Philie, Laila Shereen Sakr, Laurie Blair, Mo Alem, and Shahid Buttar. (Percussionists) Kristen Arant, Mark Nickens, Fadi Sakr, and Jessica Philie. Other guerrillas include Cesar Maxit and Nik Schiller, and Bob. We performed the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in front of quite a crowd…George W. Bush was president of the U.S.
