We'll be joined by Brazillian filmmaker and media activist Miguel, who is touring the US with his recently completed documentary tribute to Brad Will, the American anarchist and Indymedia filmmaker who was shot dead by paramilitaries in the employ of the state while documenting the popular revolt in Oaxaca in 2006.

Donations will go to help Miguel continue his tour.
DVDs will also be on sale.

About Plan Mexico:
Buried in the $46 billion supplemental war spending proposal that President Bush submitted to Congress on Oct. 22 is a $1.4 billion aid package to Mexico to be distributed over the next three years, purportedly to fight drug trafficking and organized crime in Mexico. The aid package, called Plan Mexico for its resemblance to the $5 billion Plan Colombia, would consist largely in advanced military training and equipment such as helicopters and surveillance aircraft, according to the Mexican foreign minister. A massive military build up in Mexico does nothing to help and will inevitably lead to increased repression. As has been the case with Plan Colombia, there is great concern that Mexico could use their new equipment in counter-insurgency raids against both social movements and suspected guerrilla forces, mainly in Mexico's indigenous and highly marginalized south.

Proyección de Brad: Una Noche Más en las Barricadas este jueves (4/3), 7:30 pm

Eskuela Libre de City Heights

Disfrutarémos la presencia de Miguel, el director y activista de medios brasileño, quien esta en gira de los EEUU con su documental recien realizado dando homenaje a Brad Will, el anarchista estadounidense y videografo de indymedia quien fue asesinado por paramilitaries empleados por el estado mientras documentó la rebelión popular en Oaxaca en 2006.

Cuando los paramilitares mexicanos asesinaron a Brad Will por un balazo al pecho, su camera cayó de sus manos pero no paró de grabar. La camera siguió yendo de un par de manos a la otra contando la historia de Brad así como los movimientos en que participaba. De los okupas en Nueva York, hasta los bosques de Oregon, de las manifestaciones anti-globalistas en Seattle, Prague y Quebec hasta la rebelión en Oaxaca, la cámara de Brad nos pinta una imagen de que se trabajaba su vida y lo que tantos de sus companer@s siguen luchando.
