Beach Funeral

Aug. 4, 2019, 10:30 a.m.

Good Harbor
Gloucester, MA

Please join us to mourn the sixth mass extinction and impending loss of Good Harbor Beach as a habitat and as a place of pleasure and beauty. Over the next 50-100 years nearly ALL of the worlds beaches will be irreparably changed and most likely destroyed by rising sea levels. Much of the coral and sea life in our planet's oceans face a similar fate. Climate change is a primary cause of extinction and threat to ocean and coastal health.

We will meet at a private home in Gloucester (half a block from Gloucester stop on commuter rail) at 10:30am to organize our procession and depart for the beach at around 11:30. Dress in black (formal if you can manage it) unless you are with the Buddhist contingent, who will dress in robes.

We will sing and have signage concerning the sixth mass extinction, damage to ocean life, as well as the general climate emergency.

In case of rain, we will process through a local mall - meeting initially at the same spot.

RSVP below to coordinate and for info on the meeting spot. (If you signed up recently you will receive an email with logistical details on Saturday 8/3 by 1pm. If you sign up after that time you will get an email before 8am on Sunday morning with the same).
