Screening of The Chicago 10 at BU - Benefit for the IMF Resistance Network

We are showing the amazing film Chicago 10 and asking for a $5 donation to

protests in DC. There will also be a vegan bake sale.

WhHERE: The Boston University Women's Resource Center, 775 Comm Ave in the basement
The IMF Resistance Network is an East coast-based anti-authoritarian group
dedicated to organizing resistance to the International Monetary Fund and
World Bank.

The Network was formed after the Spring 2010 IMF demonstrations in
Washington DC, and in October 2010 we again organized the mobilization
against the IMF and World Bank meetings.

Right now we are organizing in resistance the next round of IMF and World
Bank meetings this April 15-17th. Stay tuned for more information about the
Network, getting involved and the actions to come!

"Chicago 10"
In 1968, the Democratic National Convention in Chicago was beset by protests
in the streets. The Vietnam War had the nation divided, and several youth
leaders -- including Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman and other activists/dirty
goddamn hippies (depending on which side of the argument you were on) --
organized public protests against the war, against capitalism, against what
they saw as America's failings. 8 of the leaders -- some of whom, like
Hoffman and Rubin, were central organizers, and some of whom, like Black
Panther Bobby Seale, were not -- were charged with inciting to riot and
brought to trial in Chicago. The film incorporates you-are-there newsreel
and found footage; it also uses motion-capture based computer generated
animation to recreate scenes from the trial, with various name actors
recreating court testimony.
