“Brad Will: Another Night at the Barricades” in Portland and Eugene March 24 and 25

On March 24th at 7pm at the Liberty Hall in Portland and March 25th at 9pm at the Apocalypse On Broadway in Eugene, there will be screenings of the new film “Brad, One More Night at the Barricades” (50 min). Brazilian filmmaker and media activist Miguel will be on hand to discuss his documentary tribute to a fallen friend.

When Mexican paramilitary forces shot Brad Will in the chest, killing him, his camera fell from his hands. But it didn’t stop recording. It continued moving from hand to hand, telling Brad’s story, as well as the story of the movement of movements that he was a part of. From the squats of New York to the forests of Oregon, from the anti-globalization protests in Seattle, Prague, Quebec to the popular uprising in Oaxaca, Brad’s camera paints us a picture of what his life was about, and what so many of his friends continue to struggle for.

After the film, Friends of Brad Will will kick off a strategy and action brainstorm with a screening of their public service announcement called “Plan Mexico” (3 min). Stick around to roll up your sleeves compadres.

Donations will go to help Miguel continue his tour.

DVDs will also be on sale.

Need to spread info at the screenings about people contacting their Congressional Reps to Stop the Merida Initiative/Plan Mexico.
