krewedelusion Innerkrewe protest update:
The recent military dissolution of the Egyptian Parliament, and the revolutionary shockwave it sent throughout the entire region, had fueled krewedelusion Innerkrewe protestors in a variety of unusual ways. Due to a stunning collaboration led by two veteran Krewes— The AlKreweists, whose members came to New Orleans to help us and stayed, and Krewe du Coup, whose perpetual takeovers and makeovers exemplify sustainable leadership–The Bearded Oysters will dig in making things slicker, and the Krewe of Scorpios will begin a sting operation to reorient the zodiac for the next great cycle.
The Noisician Coalition, The 6t’9 Social Aid & Pleasure Club, The Mysick Krewe of Pataphysicians, the Krewe of White Devils, the Krewe of Bananas, The Camel Toe Lady Steppers, and the Pony Girls, Krewe du Jieux, Krewe du Coup, Krewe du Sue, Amigos de los Amigos, The Pussyfooters, Krewe du Muu-Muu, The Krewe of Amzie, Krewe of Da Rat Paw, The Krewe of Two, and of course The Krewe of Tourists all look forward to watering the Seeds of Revolution!
