Ryan Harvey and Mark Gunnery of Riot-Folk! Records (riotfolk.org) will
open with hard-hitting anarchist folk music before the film screening.
Simon Sedillo, the director of El Enemigo Común, will be in attendence.
El Enemigo Común (The Common Enemy) scratches beneath the surface of
neoliberalism, and looks at some of the most hidden atrocities in recent
North American history. The film documents instances of paramilitary
activity against indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico from 2002
through 2005, and includes footage of protests in Cancun against the World
Trade Organization, and in Miami against the Free Trade Area of the
America's. The three locations in isolation expose the disparities in
North American resistance movements, but also bring us closer to
understanding the nature of an emerging common struggle.
Bouncing back and forth from community to community, El Enemigo Común is
both an introduction to some of the many ignored resistances in North
America, and an urgent call to action for international civil society, to
stand in solidarity against state sponsored repression and for human
peace, dignity and justice, in Oaxaca, Mexico. The film provides a
historical context for the current violent incarnation of capitalism and
empire, and provokes action against it as a common enemy.
See the Santa Cruz premier of El Enemigo Común at the RCNV (515 Broadway)
on Thursday, February 16th at 8:00pm.
