GLOBAL UPRISINGS IN THE AGE OF AUSTERITY: A night of video dispatches from the front lines, Dec. 21st

GLOBAL UPRISINGS IN THE AGE OF AUSTERITY
A night of video dispatches from the front lines

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21TH
7pm @ Internationalist Books, 405 West Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC

Since the dawn of the most recent crisis of capitalism in 2008, there
have been uprisings all over the globe. Around the world, advocates
for a different world and different social relations have engaged in
strikes, riots, and occupations, while simultaneously creating
networks of solidarity and mutual aid. Filmmaker Brandon Jourdan and
researcher Marianne Maeckelbergh have been documenting these revolts
as they unfold, reporting from Greece, Spain, Portugal, Egypt, the UK
and the US as part of their online film series at
www.globaluprisings.org. Their reports have been featured on news
outlets and websites like Democracy Now, Grit TV, Adbusters,
Salon.com, Reflections On A Revolution, Submedia.tv Stir, and
CounterPunch. They will join us on December 21st at Internationalist
Books for a salon and retrospective of their mini-documentaries
together with a discussion about the evolution of the global economic
crisis and how people are organizing in response.
