A New Grito for Change

September 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$10

Mexican and Central American Independence Day Celebration

On September 16, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo delivered the Grito de Dolores, a declaration of independence from Spanish colonialism; and a call for the abolition of African slavery, for an end to the caste system exploiting Indians, and for social and economic reform. Today, Mexicans and Central Americans are forced out of their home countries by a history of U.S. military intervention and exploitation, including International Monetary Fund and World Bank debt payments, imposed austerity agreements – U.S. corporate domination to create a source of cheap labor. People that migrate to the United States face ICE repression, denial of their right to organize and no legal enforcement of workplace protections – forcing them into low-wage jobs.

 

Join us in a New Grito – a call for worker rights for all as human rights, independence from poverty, full legalization and fair trade not exploitation!

Performances of music, poetry, dance, and oratory.
