Title: Disarming Nat Turner: Occupy meets MLK, jr.
START DATE: Sunday January 27
TIME: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location Details:
Playground behind the playground behind the Bernal Branch library, 500 Cortland Avenue
Event Type: Party/Street Party
Occupy Bernal Education Workgroup and The Commons SF invite you to a "Get your art in gear" rondez-view. Come to a short talk, a long screening, and a $1,000 prize competition regarding the Occupy Movement!

First, Salty Oldhmann of the Occupy Land Values collective will render a perspective on Nat Turner's desperate uprising of 1831, connecting its objectives with those of the 1860's Radical Republicans' "Forty Acres and a Mule" campaign, and too with Martin Luther King, jr's non-violence social reform ideals.

Second, The Commons SF will screen Ronin Gai, the story of tired, flabby social justice workers (in the guise of retired samurai at the end of the shogunate era in Japan) who are at last roused to fight on behalf of the marginalized and afflicted (the poor in Jesus' ministry). A tale sure to rouse the tingles in wannabe Occupy Activists.

And third, DG of The Commons SF will explain and award a $1,000 prize for creation of a 3 minute youtube from amongst those in attendance. Let's repeat that: DG will describe the youtube project, call for an on-the-spot hand-written half page submission for the project, and make the award for the prize then and there.

Any and all of the events open to everyone, fee-free.
