My name is Franklin López and I am working with Indymedia.org on a
DVD about the MayDay 2006 immigration marches. We have a great
compilation of films and we are trying to get this out before MayDay
So I am looking for a few good hands to help with the transcripts and
the translation ASAP.
Below is an abstract of the project.
¡Gigante: Despierta! (Giant: Awake!) DVD compilación
More about the project: HR 4437, the draconian anti-immigrant
legislation passed by the US House of Representatives on December 16,
2005, ignited a massive wave of immigrant rights mobilizations that
spread rapidly across the country. Millions of people took to the
streets across all major cities and many smaller urban areas, with
notable and highly visible actions in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York,
and elsewhere. In many places, these marches were larger than any in
Predictably, the mass media covered the marches with a mix of surprise,
ignorance, and racism. They gave plenty of airtime to anti-immigrant
spokespeople and fringe white supremacist organizations like the
Minutemen. They failed almost entirely to do either in depth analysis or
to convey the voices of the millions who marched.
Yet grassroots video activists, immigrant rights organizers, and
everyday people participating in the mobilizations documented everything
with video, audio, photography and texts. This DVD brings together some
of the most compelling material from the 2006 migrant rights
mobilization wave, and brings it to the streets just in time to energize
people for Mayday 2007. This is a not-for-profit project. any proceeds
from DVD sales after the costs of production are paid off will be split
50-50 between you (the videomakers) and grassroots immigrant rights
organizations around the country.
