Rezoning Harlem: The Battle over Harlem's Future documents the 2008 struggle against rezoning 125th street, highlighting the work of activists who fought to protect Harlem from billionaire developers and their predatory rezoning plans.
Rezoning Harlem and the fight against gentrification that it documents is relevant today, as developers are attempting to rezone East Harlem, to build luxury housing and to displace residents. And rather than defend the neighborhood, the community board is conceding to the rezoning plan with a lukewarm no "with conditions" vote- all at the expense of East Harlem residents.
Join us for a special showing of Rezoning Harlem at the Justice Center en El Barrio. Afterwards we will discuss the film and what we can do to fight back against gentrification and displacement in East Harlem.

July 20th will mark 6 months since the cheeto took office. Since then we have had to resist on all fronts as the Trump administration wasted no time starting its assault on working people everywhere. His administration has not even tried to hide its racism, xenophobia, and misogyny.
But with each attack there has been resistance, and we will not stop! Join us as we celebrate 6 months of resistance to Trump and his administration with a rally and march through downtown.
Initiated by the ANSWER Coalition - Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, and Sacramento Area Peace Action
The ANSWER Coalition stands with the #NoDAPL movement and the Indigenous people and water protectors who valiantly tried to prevent the Dakota Access Pipeline that was imposed by means of Executive Order from Donald Trump after assuming the White House. Trump, before assuming the presidency, was an investor in the company that will make mega-profits from DAPL.
In the face of peaceful protest to defend the environment and the lands of Indigenous peoples from the Dakota Access ...pipeline, various branches of government and law enforcement agencies employed brutal, violent methods against the water protectors.
As revealed by documents leaked to the online publication The Intercept, the government also hired a notorious private, mercenary, paramilitary “security firm” called TigerSwan to infiltrate and spy on the #NoDAPL movement. TigerSwan has been used by the Pentagon and intelligence agencies in overseas operations.
Tellingly, as revealed by these Fusion Center documents, TigerSwan has also been employed by law enforcement agencies within the boundaries of the United States against those seeking to exercise their First Amendment rights to protest and redress grievances.
The documents also reveal that TigerSwan was working in coordination with the Illinois state police in an effort to engage in covert and overt spying operations against the ANSWER Coalition in Chicago in 2017 when ANSWER was helping to organize protests against the racist and reactionary policies of the Trump Administration. This despicable use of paramilitary mercenaries working with police agencies in Illinois constitutes a fundamental assault on the First Amendment and the constitutional rights of the people in Chicago and Illinois. The ANSWER Coalition demands that those government and law enforcement officials that engaged in this illegal, anti-democratic assault on basic freedoms be held to account.
Food • Dancing • Drinks • Solidarity!

We are organizing caravans, low-income housing and taking every measure possible to cut costs and make the People’s Congress accessible. But we need to raise $20,000 to subsidize the buses, caravans and housing so the trip is affordable for all grassroots and working-class resisters.
Grassroots resisters around the country are on a fixed-income and facing devastating cuts to vital social services. Fundraising is an urgent need to help get them to D.C. in September.
Tomorrow in Washington, D.C., the ANSWER Coalition is co-sponsoring the Foro de Sao Paulo: Conferencia Anual 2017.

Now Is The Time! Provides a unique look at the struggle for single-payer healthcare, and the activists who for years have been working towards achieving this vision of universal and free healthcare for all.
Healthcare and pharmaceutical costs are higher than they've ever been before. Donald Trump and Paul Ryan are attempting to pass healthcare reform that will make it even more difficult for working class people to obtain the health coverage they need. The current healthcare system in America has put healthcare into the hands of the insurance corporations and pharmaceutical lobbies at the expense the people.
Join us for the special film showing. Afterwards we will discuss the film, our healthcare system, and what we can do to fight for single payer!
Important action Wednesday in D.C.
