Join a community/labor concert and rally to defend the Victor Jara mural at the Bernal Heights Library. Using a manipulated non-transparent process excluding most of the community the Friends of the Library and corporateers want to spend $110,000 to destroy this historic mural and replace it with a sanitized design censoring the real history of Bernal Heights.
