Margarat Nee and Kim Schwenk of Grrrl Zines A Go-Go will present a history of San Diego’s Punk culture from the 1970’s through the 1990’s via DIY (Do It Yourself), self published, small circulation zines. From music journalism to alternative life-styles and punk politics, we will get a first person, bottom-up perspective of one of San Diego’s ever thriving, underground movements.

There will be a zine making workshop after the presentation, participants will create a compilation zine (one page per person) which will then be added to the San Diego Public Library’s new zine collection.

Event Location: 
Central Library 330 Park Blvd, San Diego, California 92101





Rise Up for Palestine

anonymous

We, the Palestinian Youth Movement-USA chapter (PYM), call on all Palestinian youth and our allies to defend our homeland and support the steadfastness of our brothers and sisters in Palestine. Friday, October 23, 2015 at 3:00 pm in front of the Federal building in Downtown San Diego. (880 Front St San Diego, CA 92101)

The Zionist bombardment on Al-Aqsa mosque, mass youth arrests, continuous displacement, home demolitions, and vigilante settler violence has taken the lives of more than 35 Palestinians in the last two weeks and left over 2000 injured. In response to the immense surge of Zionist aggression in Palestine, we in the Palestinian Diaspora must recognize that our peoples resistance is a mandatory element of maintaining survival, bonds to land, to society and to surviving in the face of an ongoing project of ethnic cleansing. But they cannot do it alone.

Flags, posters, and noise are encouraged. --Read More--

Friday, October 23, 3PM @ Federal Building, Downtown San Diego, 880 Front St

This event is directly spawned from the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We are not satisfied with the response of San Diego City/County officials in the ongoing crisis and demand further action.

This is a solidarity movement, all humans are invited to express displeasure against all forms of police brutality and demand Americas finest police force from Americas finest city.

Understanding whiteness

Privilege and the powers granted by privilege are the conflicts of whiteness. Sunday, the 22nd, was another timely event held in conjunction with the month long celebration of Enero Zapatista. The conversation should be a focus of the occupy movement and the dialogues that have opened as a result. Sunday's event was a panel discussion that presented perspectives from womyn of color and a white ally, on whiteness and its oppression on society.
