TALL SHIPS AFTERPARTY and TTIIP TEACH IN!
4 live bands!
Hot stuff 
5pm– late
Come on out!
On July 20th,we’ve got a full afternoon and evening TALL SHIPS AFTERPARTY and TTIP teach in at Thompson’s Point in Portland Maine.  We’ve invited our favorite agrarian bands, including The Parlor, Will Dailey  and Milk and Honey Rebellion– as well as sea shanty singer Paul Hartney. It’s a stop-over event for Neil Young’s Monsanto Year’s tour— so we’ll have a full complement of organic agriculture activists in attendance, and perhaps a special guest or two. The focus of the training is on ‘terms of trade’ with a training by Food and Water watch regional director  Alex Beauchamps  and Maine Fair Trade and the Citizen Policy Commission about the impact of the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a free trade agreement) on New England agriculture.  Come early, stay late– tall ships forever!
