In Portland? Head to the movies!
On Tuesday June 12th at 7 PM the third installment of the monthly(ish) radical movie series PDX Rad Movie Night will take place at the Social Justice Action Center at 400 SE 12th Ave.
PDX Rad Movie Night aims to create a space for people in the local radical community to come together on regular basis in a setting that isn’t a meeting or protest, and give them the chance to socialize and make connections in a low stress environment. The first part of the event will be social time for folks to network and talk to people involved in radical community projects.
This month we will be showing parts 1 and 2 of the There Goes the Neighborhood episode of Submedia’s Trouble series. Part 1 of the episode examines gentrification as a process of capitalist urban development, by taking a closer look at how it is playing out in three mega-cities: Toronto, New Orleans and Istanbul. Part 2 talks to comrades in Montreal, the Bay Area and Berlin to see how people in these cities are fighting back on attacks on their communities by developers, real estate speculators and the tech industry.
