SYMBOLS OF RESISTANCE @ Left Coast Social Forum

You are invited and of course, you can bring your friends. Please share with your lists and social networks.

Join Karla Ortiz and Guillermo Suarez M., as we present this historic documentary SYMBOLS OF RESISTANCE at the Left Coast Social Forum on August 25th at 5 pm. at Los Angeles Trade College.

This documentary commemorates 9 individuals in the Chicano Mexicano movement for self-determination, whose lives were cut short during the struggle in New Mexico and Colorado. This historic documentary documents their involvement in the various issues struggles of the time: Police and INS brutality, educational access, community struggles and the struggle to reclaim our land stolen in the U.S. invasion of Mexico. These struggles still form the heart of our people's struggle.

More than just a commemorative nostalgic overview, this presentation discussion is a continued call to action, to continue to resist the on-going colonization of our people and the occupation of our homeland since 1848.

Karla Ortiz, a teacher at the week long Tierra Amarilla Youth Liberation Institute, will discuss these experiences as well as the current struggle to defend freed land from the current efforts by the state of New Mexico to reclaim land that was militantly occupied in 1988 by the Mexicano people of Tierra Amarilla.

Guillermo Suarez M, is a long time activist member of the Movimiento de Liberacion Nacional, will discuss the importance of the SYMBOLS OF RESISTANCE to the on-going struggle for self-determination and national liberation of our people.

For national liberation,

Karla Ortiz

Guillermo Suarez M.

Copies of the video will be available for purchase at the event, to support the resistance at Tierra Amarilla.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
