Resistencia: The Fight for the Aguan Valley

The Task Force on the Americas is screening Jesse Freeston’s film Resistencia: The Fight for the Aguan Valley. It is the story of the 2009 Honduran Coup and follows 2000 farming families who take over plantations of the most powerful man in the country, with no plans of giving them back.

On the morning of June 28, 2009, democratically-elected President Manual Zelaya was forcefully expelled from the country during a US-supported military coup. Resistencia: The Fight for the Aguan Valley follows three key members of the farmers’ resistance as they build their new communities on occupied land and agitate for a more democratic state while trying to survive the regime’s violent response.

Redwoods Presbyterian Church
110 Magnolia Avenue (at Alexander)

This event is sponsored by the Task Force on the Americas. A $5-10 donation is requested; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This event is wheelchair accessible, for more information call (415) 924-3227. Thank you!

Stopping Glyphosate Use on Marin Public Lands,
Presentations by Dr. Don Huber and Dr. Evaggelos Vallianatos

 

The spraying of Glyphosate on public lands became an issue of public interest when Marin County gave permission to a group of school children to visit Ring Mountain the day they planned to spray the area with Glyphosate, a pesticide recently reclassified by the World Health Organization as as a probable carcinogen.

Lori Grace will host a panel of distinguished scientists and researchers as they give presentations regarding the use of this pesticide on public lands in our community.
