Resistance Roadshow
Resistance Roadshow
The Earth2Trump roadshow is rallying and empowering defenders of civil rights and the environment to resist Trump’s dangerous agenda. Stopping in 16 cities on its way to Washington, D.C., it will bring thousands of people to protest at the presidential inauguration.

The shows feature national and local speakers, great musicians,
and an opportunity to join a growing movement of resistance
to all forms of oppression and all attacks on our environment.
We must stand and oppose every Trump policy that
hurts wildlife; poisons our air and water; destroys our
climate; promotes racism, misogyny or homophobia; and
marginalizes entire segments of our society.

Join us in your community to send a powerful, unwavering
Earth2Trump message that oppression and environmental
destruction will not be tolerated.

He performs as a solo act and with his band, The Norway Rats, a murderer’s row of Northwest music vets from acts such as The Decemberists and Eels touring throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. Their latest CD/LP, “All You Pretty Vandals,” garnered rave reviews from national press, online blogs, and widespread radio play.

“Reclaiming tradition and social consciousness as weapons of resistance and tools for significant societal change, Neill appeals to our desire for collective experience, spinning touching and uplifting stories of hope, dignity and progressive politics. Be it through raucous rockers, fragile acoustic ballads, passionate bursts of punk fury or soulful touches of Irish folk, Neill's narrative talent and concern for real people's struggles stand out.”
-- Marco Rivera, SPLENDID

“These are songs with stories well told. This is what it's all about.”
--STEVE EARLE
