Our friends at Puppet Underground are back in action this Saturday to support of the Occupy movement in general and Occupy K Street in specific. From the organizers!:

"WHO:  Bread and Puppet Theater is coming with their newest show... about the Occupy movement! One of the oldest activist street theater troupes in the country, Bread and Puppet can make you laugh, make you cry, and make you want to occupy!

The Occupy Wall Street Puppetry Guild lends us the fabulous puppeteer and musician Jo Robin, who will bring a paper circus of economic proportions!

Puppet Underground will present a new show about a local organizing struggle to make housing a human right. The show will take us from a look into the past through to the present and into the possibilities of the future!

The Shadow Senators will be performing a song and cranky show!

Quique Aviles brings us a performance from his one-man show "Los Treinta"!

Zein Elamine will share his poetry about DC!

WHAT: Historical characters and roving musicians will lead you from Occupy K Street to other locations downtown with significant grassroots organizing history where you will see puppet shows and musical acts that will start your heart a-pumpin'! Join us to celebrate social justice movements in an exciting cabaret that will send you running to your nearest General Assembly! Wear comfortable shoes, be prepared to walk, and we invite you to stay after the show for OccuPie eating at our Occupy After-Party!

Suggested sliding scale donation of $5-15. 

WHEN: Saturday, November 19th. Show starts at 12:30PM. Tours of Occupy K Street at 12:00PM.

WHERE: Meet at the statue in McPherson Square (15th and K St NW)"
