(el evento sera bilingue, disculpa que este mensaje no lo es, pero seguro
que ust. ya sabe lo que ocure en Oaxaca y ya vendra para apoyar, verdad;)

All funds raised will directly benefit the most dire needs of the those in
resistance and their families, through APPO, (the Popular Assembly of the
Pueblo of Oaxaca), in their historic struggle to kick out the repressive
government of Oaxaca, and defend themselves from the threat of military in
helicopters and tanks, marines, police and secret government forces, that
are all just waiting for the orders to attack. Already many students and
teachers have been kidnapped, tortured and now blamed for the bombings of
3 banks and the macheteed corpse of a fellow teacher.

The films not only include atrocious violence and battles between the
teachers and police, but also incredible acts of creative resistance from
the community that has participated in many spirited mass marches,
encampments and militant occupations of media and government buildings.
And if you know anything about Oaxacans, you know that they include art
and creativity in all they do, so you don't want to miss these incredibly
inspiring films. And remember, this isn't a movie theater, so feel free
to cheer and yell at the screen all you want ;}

Some of the films have subtitles, and some are narrated by a live
interpreter, and guided by speakers from El Caracol de la Mission, who
also are bringing many fresh silk-screened prints to sell for 5-$10 and
shirts as well.

Also, La Colectiva Zapatista Ramona, who has recently returned from their
trip to various places in Mexico, including Oaxaca, will be giving a
report back from the front lines of the popular struggles and the support
they are receiving by the Zapatista communities. (Unfortunately, there is
a lot of controversy, blame and chisme right now about Marcos and the
Zapatistas, so come and find out for yourselves their side of the story,
no?)

Both groups are adherents to the Other Campaign, a movement that is
attempting to unite the voices and struggles of the people. There will
also be information and invitations to join the caravans leaving to the
Other Campaign in Tijuana on the following day and days after.
