Zapatista! the Movie at Voz Alta, Wed, Apr 26 7pm

 
From June 17-19th, Delegate Zero of the Zapatistas will be coming to Tijuana as part of La Otra Campana. People will converge on San Diego and Tijuana from all over the US for this historical opportuniy to meet the Zapatistas first hand and take part in La Otra Campana, a new campaign aimed at radically transforming politics through coordination of groups on the left organizing outside of electoral politics against capitalism. A member of the o.r.g.a.n.i.c. collective will speak about the plans for June and what you can do to help!

FILM SCREENING, Wednesday, April 26, 2006: ZAPATISTA! is an inspiring first-hand account of a struggle that will challenge the way you think about the world. Armed with sticks and words against a 'First World' military, the Zapatistas were able to hold their ground. Ignored by a mainstream press, the Zapatistas have used poems, children's stories, videos, and the internet, to permanently transform the political imagination of a nation.

The film starts at 7pm at Voz Alta on 1544 Broadway, downtown San Diego. $3-$5 donation, light refreshments. Learn more at:  http://www.bignoisefilms.com/zap

Also, the Tactical Ice Cream Unit will be on hand as part of the Center for Tactical Magic's West Coast tour! The Tactical Ice Cream Unit (TICU) rolls through the city in an act of intervention that replaces cold stares with frosty treats and nourishing knowledge. Combining a number of successful activist strategies (Food-Not-Bombs, Copwatch, Indymedia, infoshops, etc) into one mega-mobile, the TICU is the Voltron-like alter-ego of the cops' mobile command center.
