Recent events in Northern California

Two recent Northern California AfD events were a chance to connect with the public on two issues (issues that, coincidentally, are the focus of the last two editions of Justice Rising!)

In Mendocino, the local chapter co-sponsored a gathering of local progressive and migrant community groups, featuring food and performances by local musicians. The event was a chance to mix across cultural lines and scope out common concerns. Meanwhile, the Ukiah chapter tabled at SolFest, a weekend celebration of renewable energy and sustainable living.

Welcome to new members who joined AfD at these events! To find out more about grassroots resistance to the corporate agenda on migration and energy, check out the Spring, 2008 issue of Justice Rising, "Emigrants--World Citizens or Corporate Slaves," and the new Summer 2008 issue, "Corporate Energy or Grassroots Power," which should be online soon. Meanwhile, if you'd like paper copies, please contact the office!
