film "Brad, One More Night at the Barricades" (55 min). Brazilian
filmmaker and media activist Miguel will be on hand to discuss his documentary tribute to a fallen friend. Media activist Guy will also speak about the situation in Oaxaca, including the plight of indigenous people.
Popular Uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico, 2006.
When Mexican paramilitary forces shot Brad Will in the chest, killing
him, his camera fell from his hands. But it didn't stop recording. It
continued moving from hand to hand, telling Brad's story, as well as the
story of the movement of movements that he was a part of. From the
squats of New York to the forests of Oregon, from the anti-globalization
protests in Seattle, Prague, Quebec to the popular uprising in Oaxaca,
Brad's camera paints us a picture of what his life was about, and what
so many of his friends continue to struggle for.
Donations will go to help Miguel continue his tour.
DVDs will also be on sale.

ABOUT THE OAXACA UPRISING
ABOUT PLAN MEXICO
Buried in the $46 billion supplemental war spending proposal that President Bush
submitted to Congress on Oct. 22 is a $1.4 billion aid package to Mexico to be
distributed over the next three years, purportedly to fight drug trafficking and
organized crime in Mexico. The aid package, called Plan Mexico for its
resemblance to the $5 billion Plan Colombia, would consist largely in advanced
military training and equipment such as helicopters and surveillance aircraft,
according to the Mexican foreign minister.
A massive military build up in Mexico does nothing to help and will inevitably
lead to increased repression. As has been the case with Plan Colombia, there is
great concern that Mexico could use their new equipment in counter-insurgency
raids against both social movements and suspected guerrilla forces, mainly in
Mexico's indigenous and highly marginalized south.
