10/30 in Hillsboro: Caravan w/ Ayotzinapa Reps & Others from Mexico Inbox

Friends,

I would like to attend the event announced here, and would like to invite others to carpool with me from Portland. It would be nice to go with someone who is bilingual, as last time I attended an event at this church I was the only non Spanish-speaking person in the audience…..

Call or text me if you’re interested

October 30th: Caravana Contra la Represión en México in Hillsboro

Becky,

As we continue to process the power & potential of the first Border Convergence/Encuentro, we know we must also continue to support our friends in our interconnected struggles. One of the groups that participated in the Encuentro and the People of Color Space there were the organizers of the ongoing Caravan Against Repression in Mexico or Caravana Contra la Represión en México. They are currently touring the U.S. through November 18, and will be holding an event this Sunday in Hillsboro!

What: Evento comunitario // Community Event

Hillsboro, OR 97124The Caravana is composed of representatives of: Ayotzinapa student federation; assembly of parents of the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa; National Coordination of Education Workers (CNTE); San Quintin farm workers; May our Daughters Return Home (Nuestras HIjas de Regreso a Casa) from Juarez City denouncing femicide; victims of attack to the people of Nochixtlan, Oaxaca; and Xochicuautla, an Otomi community fighting mega-projects/land graving against indigenous communities.
