Rev. Billy took part in a creative protest at the Starbucks at Astor Place Feb. 3, 2007, in New York City. I believe he was arrested.

    HAHA I remember when he came to my country, Iceland! He went to the biggest shopping mall in the country and was like: "SAY NO TO ALCAAAN-AH!! SAY NO TO ALCOA-AH!"

    He was with the saving iceland group protesting the aluminum companies in iceland.

  • Betty Blade 6y

    could say "free speech"...
    or just that Billy & Starbucks have different views on world economics.

    Okay i know he's a performance artist and not a real Reverend...

    but after hearing that .. oh so smug Pat Robertson speak..

    I prefer Rev Billy's words ( written before the sad current events )
    over that self righteous televangelist.


    from Rev Billy's web page;

    "Earthrise" by Rev Billy

    We Are Ready!

    The Earth is our government. The Earth is our economy. The Earth is our church.
    We listen to the Earth and then go to these institutions with what we learned.
    We go to the president and the generals and get no response. Then we return to the Earth and await further instructions, knowing that life itself is the best strategist.

    The Earth speaks to us every day. The quakes and typhoons are hard lessons.
    Sunlight and laughter encourage us.

    The silence of extinct life is a sorrowing Earth.
