Film Screening: The Garden Movie 
Mon May 4th 7pm 
Harkins Valley Art Theater 509 S Mill Ave Tempe, AZ 85281


https://schoolofsustainability.asu.edu/events/rsvp/film-the-garden-movie/
The 14-acre community garden at 41st and Alameda in South Central LA is the largest of its kind in the US. Started as a form of healing after the devastating LA riots in 1992, the South Central Farmers are creating a miracle in one of the country’s most blighted neighborhoods: growing their own food, feeding their families, and creating a community.


 But now, the city sold the lot to a developer for well below value in a closed door meeting and bulldozers are poised to level their 14-acre oasis.

Free China: The Courage to Believe (Free Screening) 
Wed 4/22 6:15pm
ASU Tempe Pima Auditorium (MU 230)
This film brings to light pressing human rights atrocities inside China that still occur today including the persecution and state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong meditators as well as other prisoners of conscience such as Tibetan Buddhists, Christians and human rights activists. 
On January 23rd this year, which is World Freedom Day, the film was broadcast for free into CHINA through New Tang Dynasty Television via Satellite which broke through the China's 'Great' Internet Firewall.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership would create a super-treaty which would jeopardize the sovereignty of the nations involved by giving that power to large corporations like Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Halliburton, Philip Morris, GE, GM, Apple.
•TPP will offshore millions of good-paying jobs to low-wage nations, undercutting working conditions globally and increasing unemployment.
•TPP will limit food GMO labeling and allow the import of goods that do not meet US sa...fe standards.
•TPP will institute SOPA, PIPA, and CISPA-like regulations and Internet measures which restrict our right to free speech.
•TPP will roll back Wall Street regulations, and prohibit bans on risky financial services.
•TPP will give multinational corporations and private investors the right to sue nations in private tribunals. These tribunals have the power to overturn environmental, labor, or any other laws that limit profit, awarding taxpayer funded damages.
•TPP will encourage the privatization of lands and natural resources in areas where indigenous people live.
Come learn about the TPP Thurs Apr 30th at 6:30pm.

#ICEFREEAZ March // Marcha Por #MIGRAFUERADEAZ
Thurs Apr 23rd 3pm
Arizona State Capitol 1700 West Washington St, Phoenix, Arizona 85007 https://www.facebook.com/events/1562952577308036/
There’s more than one way to stop a deportation. With affirmative relief held up in the courts, and another 7 million people with no relief in sight, our movement must work to stop deportations from another angle, ending out-of-control enforcement and rampant criminalization.
 On the fifth anniversary of SB1070, our resistance continues and our movement grows. It’s time to get ICE out of our neighborhoods, in Arizona and across the country. The President’s next step should be to end ICE’s working with notorious Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and police departments enabled by SB1070.

"The Loving Story" Film Screening & Discussion  7pm Wed 4/15 https://www.facebook.com/events/838358239561292/ Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication 555 N Central Ave, Phoenix, Arizona 85004 When Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in July 1958, in Virginia, for violating a state law that banned marriage between people of different races, such laws had been on the books in most states since the seventeenth century. But the Lovings never expected to be woken up in their bedroom in the middle of the night and arrested. The documentary brings to life the Lovings' marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for Life magazine.
The Center for the Study of Race & Democracy and The Philosophy and Film Series presents "The Loving Story." Join us for the film screening, followed by panel discussion moderated by Matthew C. Whitaker, Ph.D., founding director of the CSRD. Free and Open to all | Cronkite, room 128 ...

Nonviolent Occupation of Cesar Chavez Plaza
Introduction

Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. Occupy Phoenix began in Cesar Chavez Plaza on October 15, 2011 – what we now call the Global Day of Change. #OccupyPhoenix stands in solidarity with #OWS. We are pushing back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. Simply put, Wall Street is holding the United States Government hostage and we would like to set them free so that WE, the 99%, can have a voice in our own country. The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future.

This is a nonviolent Occupation of Downtown Phoenix. We are focused on creating a peaceful dialogue and working towards strengthening our community. We do not condone or encourage violence of any kind! We welcome people from all colors, genders and beliefs to attend our daily General Assemblies.

This page is for the Occupy Phoenix movement to spread information to the 99% and the media. We encourage thoughtful and constructive debate.

People are at Cesar Chavez plaza 24 hours a day. Please join us, show support, make donations, and call your friends! We are committed to keeping this protest peaceful, clean, and respectful so everyone feels like a welcome member of our Occupy family.
