November 14, 2014 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., PUJA, 729 W. Maxwell Street.
Events in Ferguson and in Ayotzinapa, Mexico have brought state violence against people of color to the forefront. The police repression of protestors in Missouri and Mexico have also demonstrated the extent of the criminalization of dissent. Despite the fact that authorities wish these two events would fade, they have sparked important social mobilization. Currently, PUJA is hosting the last days of the Chicagoaxaca: Militarization / Mobilization exhibit and we would like to have a community conversation around these issues. The “Justicia en Ayotzinapa Comité Chicago” has been doing vigils every Friday night in the plaza on the corner of Blue Island and 18th as an act of witnessing, resistance, and education on what is happening in Mexico. Come to hear about and learn what is happening in Mexico.
Evento comunitario en la Universidad de Illinois at Chicago. 729 W Maxwell Street a las 630. Ahí nos vemos!
Co-Sponsored by Justicia en Ayotzinapa Comité Chicago & UIC Social Justice Initiative & The UIC Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy
