We will be hosting our monthly 1st Friday event, this time as a fundraiser for individuals who have received legal fines resulting from participation in Occupy Albany activities.
Join us for an evening of compelling short film about the Occupy movement from independent filmmakers, followed by a discussion of the Occupy movement and role of radical media. Join regional filmmakers in a fascinating and provocative look at the role that independent media can play in struggle!
Suggested Donation $5-10
The program of short films will run approximately 80 minutes followed by a panel discussion with local and regional filmmakers including Bhawin Suchak, Ira McKinley & Messiah Rhodes.
A book event and multi-generational dialog to celebrate U.S. political prisoner David Gilbert’s new memoir, “Love and Struggle.”
David Gilbert’s new book, “Love and Struggle: My Life in SDS, the Weather Underground, and Beyond,” sparks a multi-generational dialogue about what social justice movements can learn from each other. Currently serving a life sentence for his participation in an armed action with a group of Black revolutionaries, Gilbert writes about the lessons learned in fifty years of a radical political life. A panel of today’s young activists will talk with ’60s revolutionaries about their common struggles, grounded by critical exchange and self-reflection.
