“Come the Revolution,” a broadside produced in support of Stephen Collis’s legal battle against Kinder Morgan
Tomorrow evening in Vancouver, activist poet Stephen Collis and friends raise money for their legal defence fund against Kinder Morgan in the ongoing protest to protect Burnaby Mountain. Talon poets Cecily Nicholson and Jordan Abel will also be in attendance, and will read alongside a number of poets taking a stand against Kinder Morgan.

Talonbooks has contributed 200 copies of a limited-edition broadside to the fundraising efforts. The broadside, which will be given as a gift with admission to the first 200 attendees, features a poem from Collis’s most recent collection of poetry, To the Barricades (2013), beautifully typeset in the style of the second edition of his book The Commons (2014).
