Two Austin Events and Update

Dear all,

First 2 events:

1. ACC/AFT Labor Film Series Presents: University Inc. on September 19th at
7pm at the Northridge Campus
https://www.facebook.com/events/359519557534949/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=reg
ular

Austin Beloved Community is a co-sponsor of the labor film series organized
by Emma Mutrux and Jacob Branson with ACC/AFT. Pace Davis, TSEU organizer
will speak after this showing.

University Inc. (1999) is by Kyle Henry, at the time an MFA graduate
student. It's about the specific loss of the film series at the Texas Union
-- and a great deal more about bureaucracy, hierarchy, and corporatization
of higher education. The film toured nationally with funding from Richard
Linklater and Michael Moore. An interesting 10 year update is located here

2. Cine Resistencia @ the Women's Community Center with Director Anne Lewis
on September 13 at 6pm
https://www.facebook.com/events/695017800576026/

I'll be showing Fast Food Women (1992 but it hasn't changed). Think Fight
for 15. And Morristown (2007), a working class response to globalization in
the U.S. South and Mexico that ends in a victory.

Update: we are translating and turning www.austinbelovedcommunity.org into
Spanish as well English including events in the animation film.

We will add to/update the 2 google maps (in English), Austin organizations
and movement history. Anyone have great Austin events or organizations
they'd like added? Please send along to me!

Please keep letting us know about area events for our calendar and Facebook
page.

Finally I think it would be great to get together this fall to begin talking
about next May Day and any other ideas for getting together as a community.

In peace and solidarity,
Anne
