07-12-2007 13:51Movement for Justice in el Barrio, a New York based (mainly Latino migrant) community organisation fighting against gentrification through direct-democracy, and fighting capitalism as adherents of the Zapatista's Other Campaign, want to tour the UK in 2008.
They want to meet with and exchange stories and lessons with anti-gentrification groups, anti-capitalist groups and migrant groups here and begin planning actions against their main enemy, their London based landlord.
Some UK based organisations are up for making this happen, but we need more help.
If you or your group might be up for helping organise the tour (funding, organising transport and crash space etc) or if you might be interested in putting on an event with Movement for Justice in El Barrio in your area, please get in touch at:
