Discussion after movie with Anne Carlson parent of CPS kids & 4-6th grade Montessori teacher, plus one parent TBA.

From the website/Desde el sito del web “For over 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance…

Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-violent movement took Mexico by surprise,
and who have endured brutal repression in their 25-year struggle for social and economic justice in Mexico’s public schools.”

Politicians promoting “Immigration Reform” are trying to sell us the idea that limited rights for the “good immigrants” can be won in exchange for increased repression of all others. Join us for a forum about grassroots struggles to confront criminalization and resist borders without buying into the politics of “worthy” vs “unworthy” people, “good immigrants” vs “criminals” and so on. Session1: Race, Criminalization and How Not to Throw Other Communities Under the Bus. Featuring Mariame Kaba (Project NIA); Yasmin Nair (Gender JUST); Moratorium on Deportations Campaign/No Name Collective and the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression

Sábado 7 de Septiembre, 10:30 AM-5:00 PM en el Campus de la Universidad Northeastern de Illinois (NEIU).

El foro es gratis, abierto al público, será en inglés y español, y se ofrece cuidado de niños  

Los políticos que promueven la “Reforma Migratoria” quieren convencer a la gente de aceptar algunos derechos restringidos para solo unos pocos “inmigrantes buenos” a cambio del aumento a la represión de todos los demás. Acompáñanos en un foro para hablar sobre las luchas de base, como confrontar la opresión para evitar más fronteras sin tener que clasificar a la gente con los términos políticos de “merecedores “o “inmigrantes buenos” en contra de “no merecedores”, o “inmigrantes malos.”

Se encuentra información del horario del foro en las páginas de web www.moratoriumondeportations.org
