Hi rad moviegoers,
Last month we spent time with NNIRR watching "Uprooted: Refugees of the
Global Economy" and "New World Border" in an immigration rights
double-feature. This coming Tuesday, August 31st, we'll experience a piece
of local radical organizing history with "Fall of the I-Hotel". Bring your
friends! This one is a benefit for the Chinese Progressive Association, one
of the original tenants of the I-Hotel.
** The Fall of the I-Hotel
Tuesday, August 31st 8pm
This film brings to life the battle for housing in San Francisco. The brutal
eviction of the I-Hotel's tenants in 1977 ended a decade of spirited
resistance. Almost 20 years since the International Hotel's demolition, the
former site of the heart of Manilatown and home to more than 10,000 people
in the 1950s, is still vacant. Many of its surviving elderly residents still
seek low-cost replacement housing. This film resonates very clearly as
homelessness becomes a fact of life in many cities today.
Stayed Tuned for Your Next Installment!

The Chinese Progressive Association is a grassroots membership-based
organization that empowers the Chinese community in the San Francisco Bay
Area and promotes justice and equality for all people. CPA?s campaigns and

processes that affect them.
