Since the dawn of the most recent crisis of capitalism in 2008 there has been a crescendo of uprisings around the globe. From Egypt, to Oakland, from Athens to Madrid partisans of a different world and different social relations have taken their riots and occupations to the symbols of power and to the localities of their lives. Marianne Maeckelbergh and Brandon Jourdan have been documenting these struggles and the experiences of participants at every step of the way. They will join us this Sunday at the Holdout for a salon and retrospective of their mini documentaries and to present the insights they have gathered in their research and participation in these historic moments.

This event will be a benefit for the legal costs of the 19 comrades arrested during the anti-capitalist anti-colonial action in San Francisco in October.
