“If a Tree Falls” Film Screening and Vegan Tamale Sale

June 11, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

June 11 is the International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason and All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners! We will be screening If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front (2011), writing letters and cards of support to anarchist political prisoners, and selling vegan tamales at a sliding scale to raise money for Marius!

If A Tree Falls tells the remarkable story of one cell of the Earth Liberation Front, by focusing on the transformation
and radicalization of one of its members, Daniel McGowan. Part coming-of-age tale, part cops-and-robbers thriller, the film interweaves a verite chronicle of Daniel on house arrest as he faces life in prison, with a dramatic recounting of the events that led to his involvement with the group. And along the way it asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism.

Children are very welcome and Solidarity Houston has a children’s corner with books, crafts, and games.

Solidarity Houston is wheelchair accessible space through the front entrance, and has one gender neutral wheelchair accessible bathroom (does not have an accessibility bar). The space is not currently scent free. Service animals always welcome, non-human animal companions are welcome as well. If you have any other accessibility needs or questions, please email us at houston_abc@riseup.net!

Parking is in the back of the space, along the train tracks. We recommend you don’t park in the Mi Charro lot, as they are known to tow people, but if you need an accessible space to park make sure you don’t park in a marked spot. Bikes can come into the space. The new green line of the metro rail has a stop right in front of the space, for those using public transportation.
