Film Screenings:

Granito de Arena: 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.

Victory in Todos Santos: a powerful 10 minute documentary by the Mal de Ojo collective on the events in Oaxaca City on November 2nd, 2006. Since March of this year, the center of Oaxaca City has been occupied by protestors who are demanding the removal of the governor, Ulises Ruiz. Victory in Todos Santos was shot on the streets during the attempted illegal takeover of Radio Universidad by the Federal Police, and provides insight into who is involved in the Oaxacan movement and why it is occurring.

Bilingual presentation from Miguel Zafra, a native Oaxaqueño and member of the Frente Indigena de Organizaciones Binacionales (FIOB), Miguel Zafra will discuss history of the uprising in Oaxaca, not just recent events but the years of struggle that have brought the people of Oaxaca to where they are now.

Proceeds go to sending media resources and medical supplies to some of Oaxaca's most remote indigenous communities, in order to contribute to their ability to document their own histories of collective organizing and resistance.

Donate in Solidarity with Oaxaca and are collaborating on a Oaxaca solidarity fundraising strategy, which is based in contributing media resources and medical supplies to some of Oaxaca's most remote indigenous farmworker communities. The organizations we are directly contributing to are CODEP-APPO, COMPA, OIDHO and AMZ. The paramilitary violence highlighted by the recent assassination of NYC Indymedia journalist Brad Will, has been an all too prevalent reality for Oaxaca's indigenous communities.

Most of the attention and aid going to Oaxaca today is concentrated in the state's capital, as a result of recent clashes there. However, the history and future of paramilitary violence in Oaxaca is rooted in the natural resource extraction of its most remote communities. The strategic displacement of these communities, in order to gain access to their resources, and subsequently to their cheap labor, is the driving force behind paramilitary violence today. Communities who organize and resist this violence are met with brute police force.

In fact, the violent displacement of communities of color around our world, is directly connected to the political and economic forces at play in Oaxaca. This is an imposition which reduces human life to a mere variable in an economic equation, and a disposable variable at that.

For this reason and are collaborating, and reaching out to you or your organization for support. We are currently engaging in a local outreach / popular education campaign on the current situation in Oaxaca and its relevance to our own communities in resistance here in the US.

We would like to invite your organization to collaborate with us in this effort to contribute to this popular movement in Oaxaca, and together work on actions to help maintain attention to the situation, educate ourselves and our communities, and raise funds for medical supplies and media resources for the communities at most risk.

The vast majority of the medical supplies will be purchased in country as they are readily available and less expensive. To that end cash donations are strongly encouraged. Please click the "Make a Donation" button to use, a credit card or debit card.

Media supplies can include as many of the following as possible:

- digital video cameras (Including old digital 8 camcorders)
- digital photographic cameras and memory chips
- digital audio recorders w/ mic input
- laptops w/ a particular need for macintosh g3 or better
