Movie Night benefit for the Freedom Socialist newspaper— “Harvest of Empire: The Untold Story of Latinos in America”
Based on the groundbreaking book by "Democracy Now!" co-host Juan González, this new documentary film takes an unflinching look at how U.S. economic and military interests have triggered waves of migration from our neighbors to the South. Without alternative working-class media, this story of what drives people to leave their homelands would not have been told.

Proceeds will kick off the $100,000 Freedom Socialist Fund Drive.

A homemade chili supper with vegetarian options will be served at 6:30 p.m. ($8 requested donation). Requested door donation is $5-10 (work exchanges available).

The movie screening takes place at New Valencia Hall (address and directions above). Everyone is welcome! For work exchanges or childcare, please call ahead. For more information, call 415-864-1278 or email bafsp [at] earthlink.net.
