Last Festival on Earth: Dozens of Hippies Are Stuck at a Festival in Panama Due to Coronavirus (VIDEO)

Published

on

Dozens of hippies have been stuck at a festival in Panama for over a month after being quarantined due to the coronavirus.

The Tribal Gathering Festival was scheduled to end on March 15, but approximately 40 people remain trapped at the site.

The festival, which organizers claimed was meant to be “paradise on Earth” is not so fun now that they can’t leave, according to the remaining hippies.

It began on February 29 and was meant to end on March 15, but on the 12th, the festival was placed under quarantine when Panama announced a national emergency. They were told they would need to remain at the beach camp until March 23, causing many attendees to miss their flights out of the country.

“A suspension on all entry or departure from Panama was implemented at the end of March. As of last week, the ban on international travel in and out of the country was extended by 30 days, meaning Tribal Gathering’s remaining attendees may be trapped on the beach until the end of May,” DJ Mag reports.

While the situation is terrible, of course, it has also become extremely comical. The hippies are now being forced to live in their theoretical utopia — and they aren’t having the amazing time that they imagined.

In a mini-documentary about the festival from Vice News, the attendees whined and complained that they are now stuck in “hell.”

“At first it was like a paradise, but when you are locked in, it’s not paradise any more,” one attendee told the camera crew.

Another man who is stuck at the festival said, “I didn’t really expect to get here and experience the last festival on Earth.”

There have reportedly been bouts of pouring rain as well as major sewage issues at the makeshift campsite.

“I’ve been camping on a beach for 80 days!” Doug Francisco, a circus performer and artist from Bristol, told the Guardian.  He reportedly designed and led the Extinction Rebellion red brigades at last year’s protests in London, and arrived in Panama at the beginning of February. “While the festival was still going on, the police came in and tried to shut it down,” he said.

Vice News hilariously reported that the festival was “designed to be a temporary paradise where people from western cities could learn from indigenous communities about how to rebalance society and live in symbiosis with the earth — but the earth doesn’t always play ball.”

Most of the indigenous performers left the camp halfway through the festival.

“There was concerns about can we get food, can we get cleaning products, can we get tobacco,” another attendee told the documentary crew.

The organizers told the stranded attendees that there is food available, but they have to purchase it. If they are poor and unable to pay, they can work for their meals.

“Don’t try to steal our food, I’ll get really upset with you,” an organizer is seen telling the crowd in the documentary. “And remember where you are, you’re in my f*cking manor,” he continues.

By the end of February when attendees arrived there was already clear warnings against unnecessary travel.

The Panama Army and other authorities have also made visits to the campsite to check people for the virus.

Some people have been able to leave, but flights out of the nation have been scarce since international flights are shut down.

    Fake news from Vice about people being forced off the bus at minute 5:16! That freeway they showed is from California Interstate freeway 15 going South bound on the El Cajon Pass in San Bernardino County!!! The freeway sign clearly reads San Bernadino.. Riverside.. Los Angeles. Indicating that they are heading south from either Utah, Nevada or the Victor Valley high desert area! What does my local freeway have to do with the story being played by Vice?? More fake news here by the mainstream media!

WATCH: Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti Booed HARD At Dodgers Opener

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti was massively booed at the Dodgers home opener on Friday afternoon.

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti was massively booed at the Dodgers home opener on Friday afternoon.

It was the first game at the stadium in over 18 months.

“For more than a year, we’ve been warned that singing, chanting and yelling is best avoided, for fear of exhaling virus-carrying droplets. On Friday, thousands of fans at Dodger Stadium exhaled loudly, booing Garcetti as if he were Chase Utley in New York,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Garcetti was at the event to commemorate the Dodgers’ victory in the World Series last fall.

When he was introduced as the team geared up to hoist their championship banner, the crowd did not hold back their massive displeasure with the liberal mayor.

The mayor continued to wave and act normal during the prolonged booing, though his mask made it hard to fully make out his reaction.

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Buys $1.4 Million Compound in Extremely White California Neighborhood

Black Lives may matter to her, but she apparently does not want to live near them.

Published

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors has purchased a $1.4 million compound in Topanga Canyon — an area with barely any black people.

The 37-year-old social justice warrior will definitely not have to worry about any of the riots she helps to stoke while tucked away in the ritzy upscale neighborhood.

The racial makeup of Topanga is 7,313 (88.2%) White (84.5% Non-Hispanic White), 117 (1.4%) African American, 35 (0.4%) Native American, 353 (4.3%) Asian, 3 (0.0%) Pacific Islander, 125 (1.5%) from other races, and 343 (4.1%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 534 persons (6.4%).

“Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin,” the Dirt reports. “Since then, the largely decentralized movement has been at the influential forefront on issues of police brutality and racially motivated violence against Black people, particularly in the wake of George Floyd’s killing last summer that sparked massive protests across the United States and around the globe. Kahn-Cullors’ published ‘When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir’ in 2018.”

According to the real estate website The Dirt, the home is a “winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.”

“Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.”

Black Lives may matter to her, but she apparently does not want to live near them.

MUST WATCH: California Restaurant Owner Blocks Health Inspector’s Car, ‘If We Can’t Work, You Can’t Work’

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.

A heroic California restaurant owner blocked in a Los Angeles County health inspector’s car after he attempted to shut his business down for allowing outdoor dining, asserting that “if we can’t work, you can’t work.”

Carlos Roman, the owner of Bread & Barley in Covina, did not back down even after police arrived.

“He wants to come in here and say that no one can work, so he can’t work either,” Roman told the officer. “He decided to come today and take photos of the people outside and say that he was going to fine us,” he explained.

Roman refused to move his truck, telling the officer to go ahead and get her supervisor.

“This is what happens when people get desperate. I’m desperate. Who is going to pay her car payment? Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?” Roman asked the officer. “I want it to be hard on everyone. I want everyone to see how hard this sh-t is.”

The outraged owner demanded to know if the inspector and the officer got paychecks last week, asserting that his employees haven’t.

“You’re just doing your job right, we’re all in this together?” Roman asked the inspector. “When I go to the bank, can I tell the bank the health department said it’s ok and that I don’t have to pay you?”

“What do I tell my employees?” Roman shouted.

Roman is now facing two $500 fines for failure to comply and interfering with the health officer.

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.
