Rebellion and Repression in Mexico – A Benefit Screening for Project TUPA

On Sunday, August 27th Project TUPA will present a screening of:

Granito de Arena (Grain of Sand)

For over 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance…

Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds of thousands of public school teachers whose grassroots, non violent movement took Mexico by surprise, and who have endured brutal repression in their 25 year struggle for social and economic justice in Mexico’s public schools.

Atenco: Breaking the Siege

This video analyzes the events in San Salvador Atenco during the first days of may 2006 and denounces the violation of the civilian population’s human rights by state and federal police forces. The documentary deconstructs the mass media’s operating methods, which were responsible for creating a climate of fear and an information blockade on the events in San Salvador Atenco.

The screening will be held at the Humanist Hall, 390 27th Street in Oakland, California starting at 6:30 p.m. with a sliding scale admission of $10-$20.

Proceeds benefit Project TUPA, a project of Free Radio Berkeley. Project TUPA (Transmitters Uniting the Peoples of the Americas) is working with indigenous, barrio and campesino communities in Mexico, Central and South America to create and maintain community broadcast stations. All funds from this event will be used to supply materials and equipment for a series of transmitter building and station construction workshops to be held in Mexico during September, 2006.

For further information, please contact Project TUPA.
