If you've been itching to see an interesting and inspiring film and/or

Save the Date! Sunday July 5, 2009!

5:00 pm: Rising Tide Boston film night and open meeting.
(spread the word)
At the Lucy Parsons Center (549 Columbus Ave in the south end of Boston -
close to both the Ruggles and Mass. Ave stops on the Orange Line)

Showing "GRANITO DE ARENA" and giving updates on what Rising Tide Boston
is, what we're doing in the realm of climate justice, and how you can get
involved.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

For over 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public
education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular
resistance...

Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds
of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-violent
movement took Mexico by surprise, and who have endured brutal repression
in their 25-year struggle for social and economic justice in Mexico's
public schools.

Completed in 2005, Granito de Arena provides context and background to the
unprecedented popular uprising that exploded in Oaxaca, Mexico, in 2006.
It serves as an excellent prequel to Corrugated Film's latest release, Un
Poquito de Tanta Verdad.

Award-winning Seattle filmmaker, Jill Freidberg, spent two years in
southern Mexico documenting the efforts of over 100,000 teachers, parents,
and students fighting to defend the country’s public education system from
the devastating impacts of economic globalization. Freidberg combines
footage of strikes and direct actions with 25 years worth of never
before-seen archival images to deliver a compelling and unsettling story
of
resistance, repression, commitment, and solidarity.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rising Tide Boston is a Climate Justice group that works to confront the
root causes of climate change and prepare for community self reliance and
resilience.
