Here is a reminder of this week’s events!

WED, AUG 9, 7-10P
Viewing of the film “The Miami Model,” a documentary about the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) protests in November 2003. This movie exposes modern police repression and breaks through the mass-media blackout that surrounded the protests in Miami to show most recent models of repression of dissent.

FRI, AUG 11, 6:30-10P
Our weekly Friday wine-tasting with a reading and signing of Aaron Saari‘s recently published book, “The Many Deaths of Judas Iscariot” at 7. Nerak Patterson will not be performing this evening as scheduled (though he will come back); we are working on getting the lovely G. Scott Jones Freedom Ensemble. We’ll keep you posted.

SAT, AUG 12, 4-7P
Opening for the new artwork: “Love, Loss, and Longing: The Impact of U.S. Travel Policy on Cuban-American Families.” The artwork will be displayed from August 10-30. See below for more information. Yes, there will be a wine tasting.
