Got to CALIFAS...Bay area...la Bahia
The Southwest Organizing Tour of the Peoples Movements Assembly (PMA) of the United States Social Forum (USSF II) held in Detroit, just arrived in California via San Diego where we visited the border and saw the border militarization and border wall of death that separates the United States and Mexico physically.
The three-day stay in San Diego ended Saturday when we drove to Oakland getting here late on the 18th. In Oakland, Karlos Schmeider Gauna is hosting us and he is with the Center Media Justice (CMJ).
On Sunday 19th we attended a BBQ party organized by Miho of the Data Center. The BBQ brought together a very eclectic crowd who vowed to support and be in solidarity with the tsunami victims in Japan. Two banners were signed by the BBQ party guests to demonstrate our support and solidarity.
We did a couple of interviews at the BBQ party one with a young woman with the solidarity project with Japan and the other with a compañera working at the National Radio project. Check out both interviews linked below.
