A benefit for POWER! (People Organized to Win Employment Rights)
http://www.peopleorganized.org

Showing the film "Catch a Fire"

A political thriller: the real-life story of a South African hero's
journey to freedom. In the country's turbulent and divided times in the
1980s, Patrick Chamusso is an oil refinery foreman and soccer coach who is
apolitical - until he and his wife Precious are jailed. Patrick is stunned
into action against the country's oppressive reigning system, even as
police Colonel Nic Vos further insinuates himself into the Chamussos'
lives.

With Guest Speakers from POWER

workers, fighting to change the the economic and social systems that
exploit and oppress us. POWER's mission is to increase civic and political
participation amongst working-class communities of color to achieve
economic, racial and gender justice.

Part of an ongoing monthly series showcasing radical films and supporting
