Arsenic filter in Goria Nagar installed!

Arsenic filter in Goria Nagar, India

From the generous donations given at the Psychedelia for No More Durty Water event at The Blind Tiger Club in May 2013, the Calcutta Rescue team has now installed an arsenic filter in the village of Goria Nagar in the Malda district, India. The community can now enjoy clean drinking water as a result of music and art provided by Black Market Karma, Kassassin Street, Carmen Rosa, Oh Captain!, Cassettelord, Atomsphere, El Winlove, David Neal and Partial Facsimile. Thank you all!

We shall continue raising money and awareness through the means of music and art, starting with Southsea Old Guard First XI at the Little Johnny Russels in Southsea THIS SATURDAY 14th November. This event is to commemorate comrade DJ Monkey P, the initiator of No More Durty Water, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Come down and enjoy 11 wicked DJs spin records from 1 PM till late and donate money you can spare to help more people gain access to clean drinking water. After all it is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT!

The Bucket Board

Here is a fantastic idea, put together for Earth Hour, skateboards made from waste out of a tip by the brilliant Mac Premo.

Do the Green Thing has teamed up with World Wildlife Fund-UK to curate the ‘Everyday Things’ collection: fifteen artists from around the world were asked to repurpose daily objects and show how creativity can lead the way in encouraging people to live a greener lifestyle. When artist Mac Premo was asked to contribute to the collection, he partnered with Sanford Shapes to create skateboard decks made entirely out of material lifted from a dumpster. Mac then made this film which shows the process and inspiration behind the Bucket Board.

Think the advert is rather cool too.

Walk 4 Water on the Millennium Promenade

walk4water

Wow! Another fundraiser for No More Durty Water by students of South Downs College.

Walk 4 Water Charity Event – A group of music students will perform Busk-Walk on Millennium Promenade on the new arranged date of Saturday 30th May. Midday to Afternoon.

The Millennium Walk

Three kilometres of promenade now links Portsmouth’s historic waterfront. The route starts from Spur Redoubt near Clarence Pier, Southsea and finishes on The Hard, taking in Old Portsmouth, the Camber and Gunwharf Quays.

The walkway has been built of the highest quality natural stone and opened up waterfront  land that had been closed to the public for centuries.

The route is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface, symbolising partnership between the communities of Portsmouth and Gosport and between past and present. Historically it also refers to the chain, which used to be tightened across the harbour entrance at times of potential attack.

Column-mounted lanterns light the promenade, designed to reflect the historic character of blue lights at night that are strung around the harbour.

Please come along and join in the fun, and help this group of music students save lives.

Southsea to Host No More Durty Water Fundraiser.

durtydozen_fly

Our friends from Durty Sound System are putting together another FUNDRAISER for us.

With the money raised from this event, and another in Brighton, will allow us to work with Calcutta Rescue in Kolkata
Calcutta Rescue has moved into the field of arsenic mitigation in response to the current crisis whereby, as a result of a drop in the water table, the drinking water supply for millions of people in West Bengal has become contaminated with arsenic, a naturally-occurring and very toxic substance.
We are hoping to buy a water filtration unit, which filters out the arsenic and supplies clean drinking water.

‘THE DURTY DOZEN’

A themed party based on the Robert Aldrich 1967 classic war film The Dirty Dozen.

The Durty Dozen, the most twisted, anti-establishment bunch of music junkies your ever run into!

We have trained them, excited them and armed them with fantastic records to execute their mission.

A Three room party at The Fat Fox to raise money for No More Durty Water

The Dirty Dozen [Film]

The Dirty Dozen was also one of the first movies to show the darker side of war – that the best soldiers are often society’s outcasts, the sociopaths and misanthropes who kill and rape. War is not civilized, and there’s no place for order or manners amidst the carnage of a battlefield.

About a suicide mission, the army has decided to use 12 criminals who are either awaiting the execution of a death sentence or who have been condemned to spend at least 20 years in prison. If the “volunteers” survive and distinguish themselves, their sentences will be commuted.
