Songs of Healing for Juarez

September 16, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

$15

Celebrate Mexican & Latin American Independence

Emergency Concert for Las Hormigas

On September 15, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo delivered the Grito de Delores, 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 lashormigaseconomic reform. Today, a legacy of U.S. neo-colonialism has subjected Mexicans and Latin Americans to brutal poverty, displaced off their lands to force them to go to the border areas to work for low wages in the maquilas, assembly plants facilitated by “free trade” agreements. In these areas, they face the violence of feminicides, drug wars and corrupt police, and the indifference of the government. In Ciudad Juarez, one organization, Las Hormigas – Comunidad en Desarrollo (the Ants – Community in Development) has been working to heal lashormigas_2the wounds of violence and poverty, and to build a new community and social reality. Join us in a new Grito – a call for social and economic justice, independence from poverty, and fair trade, and in supporting Las Hormigas through a financial crisis.
