8PM SATURDAY! Co-Presented by Bay Area Public School, Sudo Room, and AK Press!
Chile has a long history of working class struggle in shanty towns, factories, mines, community organizations, and schools. In the 20 years after the US supported coup which overthrew Salvador Allende’s government, much of the organizing was done underground. However after the fall of the dictatorship in 1990, there was a new rise of mass popular organization in the country. Anarchists have been a major force in the social movements, strategically organizing to build power. This has manifested in solidarity for the Mapuches, anarchists winning the student union elections at the University of Chile, militant pro-abortion actions, and libertarian labor organizations.
This national tour brings three individuals involved in these struggles to talk about the lessons learned and to create solidarity across hemispheres. From January to the end of February, the speakers will be traveling throughout the country and we hope that you can spread the word and hear about the important work that is happening in Chile.
Join us in welcoming them on Saturday, February 22, when they will at last be at the Bay Area Public School and Sudo Room common space at 2141 Broadway (enter on 22nd, elevate to 2nd floor) at 8pm sharp. Space is handicapped accessible, and always: free!!
