11/4/11 7pm: Occupations & Crisis: A film & discussion of La Dignidad de Los Nadies

Miami, Florida

The system is in crisis, unemployment lines grow daily, and austerity is grinding away at our necessities and way of life.

In 2001 Argentina experienced an even greater collapse, and massive movements emerged to build alternatives to the misery that was imposed upon them. Occupations, massive strikes, and social disruptions are growing. As this crisis spreads, and new resistance and new movements are emerging.

We are faced again with the lessons and questions of these moments. What role can the popular movements play in defeating capitalism, and creating a new society based on collective democracy, mutual aid, and the defeat of hierarchy? What challenges do we face from those who try to coopt and channel the movement into controllable territory? if we reject trying to save capitalism, what could a popular democracy based on equality look like?

Join Miami Autonomy & Solidarity to watch the film the Dignity of the Nobodies (la dignidad de los nadies) in spanish with subtitles about the Argentinian crisis and movements presented through a narrative of interviews with the protagonists of those movements from the bottom. We will have a discussion of the film and our moment in history afterwards.

This meeting will help decide the logistics and direction of the occupation, and this is the official meeting chosen by the general assembly last weekend. Occupy Miami was started by a number of newly-politicized youth from Miami-Dade, and they are flyering in the community to build up this movement. See you there.
