Please join For a Democratic University for a showing of this film that focuses on labor struggles in schools in Mexico, and how students and teachers fought together against oppression and privatization for democratic schools. Stay for a discussion with FaDU about how we can understand privatization, labor struggles, and education at the University of Washington, now.
FaDU is an independent labor group of TAs, RAs, and other graduate students, fighting against privatization, budget cuts that affect women, people of color, queer folks, immigrants, and folks with disabilities, and for true academic freedom and a democratic university for students and workers in the UW community.
dismantling public education in Mexico,
but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance...
Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance –
for social and economic justice in Mexico's public schools.
Completed in 2005, Granito de Arena provides context and background to the unprecedented popular uprising that exploded in Oaxaca, Mexico, in 2006. It serves as an excellent prequel to Corrugated Film's latest release, Un Poquito de Tanta Verdad.
