Powerlands Film Screening
The Ecosoc Committee, AfroSoc Committee, the Education Board, and an Indigenous comrade welcome you to join us at 1916 McAllister for an outdoor film screening of Powerlands on June 4th from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
🍿Doors will open at 7 p.m. A brief introduction to the film starts at 7:30 p.m. The screening begins at 7:45 p.m. and lasts 75 mins. A 30-minute community discussion will follow the film. The film is in Zapotec, Blaan, Visayan, Wayuunaiki, Diné, Spanish, and English, with English subtitles. This is a sober event. The event location is not ADA accessible. There are three stairs to climb to get from the front of the office to the back two rooms and the backyard where the film screening will take place.
Powerlands is a film about the extractive nature of both the usual polluting suspects and the so-called “green energy” movement, a colonizer “new deal” which often exploits Indigenous peoples and lands. Powerlands follows the trail of extractive industries that have exploited the land where the director, Ivey-Camille Manybeads Tso, was born and around the world. Over the course of the documentary, she meets Indigenous women leading the struggle against the same corporations that are causing displacement and environmental catastrophe in her own home, and underscores that an Indigenous socialism must be driven by consent and care.
🌹 Socialist Housing Organizing Project (SHOP): Tenant Rights Training 🌹
Join the Tenant Organizing PWG for the second session of our Socialist Housing Organizing Project (SHOP) on Sunday, June 4th at 3:00 p.m. at the DSA SF office (1916 McAllister St)! (Zoom available upon request.)
Our goal with this 3-part workshop is to build DSA SF’s tenant organizing capacity and plug folks into autonomous tenant organizing efforts in the city. We will discuss a socialist perspective on housing, current tenant rights in the city, and collaborate with seasoned Tenant and Neighborhood Councils (TANC) organizers on learning direct action strategies.
This second module will focus on tenants’ legal rights in San Francisco and California. We will discuss different legal protections for renters and how to best utilize the law to fight landlords.
