This Friday, November 14th, we'd like to invite you to the City Heights Free Skool Cafe, a dinner and movie that will benefit grassroots projects in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Food starts at 6:30 pm. There will be bowls of amazing vegan Somalian food for sale $4 (or $3 if you bring your own plate.) The woman who is going to be making the food is named Amina and sets up a food stall at the City Heights Farmers' Market on Saturdays. There will also be different kinds of teas for sale, provided by Kooky of the Casas Saludables Cafe. Come support affordable, healthy vegan food in City Heights!

We'll be showing The Take at 7 pm, a documentary about workers who took over and collectivized their factories in the aftermath of Argentina's 2001 economic crisis.

All proceeds from the event will go toward purchasing video cameras for Proyecto Autogestion, which collaborates with the Comité de Defensa de los Derechos del Pueblo (CODEP, Committee Organized in Defense of the People's Rights) in Oaxaca, Mexico. During the popular rebellion in Oaxaca in 2006, the City Heights Free Skool raised funds for cameras that were used during the making of the documentary, "El Machete", which was filmed and edited by indigenous women and youth from communities in Oaxaca. It documents a more profound look at the day to day struggles for land, water, transportation, culture, dignity, justice, liberty, and peace.
