-Friday, July 12th, 2pm: Free Film Screening: A Place Called Chiapas


From facebook post - https://www.facebook.com/events/2338483593076406/ "In solidarity with indigenous groups in Mexico, Subrosa is screening the 1998 documentary, A Place Called Chiapas. The film explores the lives of soldiers and citizens within the Zapatistas' rebellion in Chiapas, Mexico's southernmost state.

This screening is part of a series of actions taking place July 12-14, in response to a call made by Mexico's National Indigenous Congress [CNI], the Indigenous Governing Council [CIG], and the Zapatista Army for National Liberation [EZLN]

These actions are intended to serve as a strong show of solidarity with the indigenous communities of the Emiliano Zapata Popular Indigenous Council of Guerrero [CIPOG-EZ] who have been attacked and surrounded by narco-paramilitary groups in the Mexican state of Guerrero. Four members of CIPOG-EZ have been killed since May 2019.

The urgent call by the CNI-CIG-EZLN also requests both supplies (from people in Mexico) and funds (from those in Mexico or around the world) that will be delivered directly to these communities via a caravan on the same dates as the days of action."

-Saturday, July 13th, noon-3pm: Really Really Free Market in Solidarity with Campana por la Vida
This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism is horrible. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive.

Note: This RRFM is in solidarity with La Campana por la Vida, La Paz, y la Justicia en las Montanas de Guererro. Indigenous groups in Mexico are calling us to bring attention to the duplicitous AMLO government that is endangering indigenous lands and livelihood in Southern Mexico.

There will be literature and donations to the coalition of groups fighting this which includes the Zapatistas and National Indigenous Congress.

-Sunday, June 23rd, 7:30pm:  Free Film Screening: ¡Las Sandinistas!

SubRosa is hosting a 2019 screening of ¡Las Sandinistas!, in association with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Santa Cruz.


¡Las Sandinistas! uncovers the untold stories of women who shattered barriers to lead combat and social reform during Nicaragua's 1979 Sandinista Revolution, and the ensuing US-backed Contra War, as these same women continue as leaders in the struggle against their current government's suppression of democracy and women's rights.

The film is centered around the personal stories of Dora Maria Téllez, the young medical student who became a major Sandinista General, and four of her revolutionary allies - Nicaraguan women who overcame traditional gender barriers and subverted stereotypes to lead rebel troops in battle and reshape their country with landmark social reform. ¡Las Sandinistas! exposes a watershed moment in history when thousands of women transformed society's definition of womanhood and leadership before facing renewed marginalization by their male peers after the wars ended. Now, 35 years later, amidst staggering levels of gender violence in Nicaragua, these same women brave the streets once again to lead  popular movements for equality and democracy. https://www.facebook.com/events/340373789989716/

**************​
And happening Friday, June 21st, 9:30am at UCSC:  Mission Bell Removal Ceremony at UC Santa Cruz --- On Friday June 21 at 9:30am (the summer solstice), representatives of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band and UC Santa Cruz will assemble on campus with interested community members to witness the removal of the El Camino Real bell marker.  https://www.facebook.com/events/420529198786048/

The bell marker, which memorializes the California Missions and an imagined route of travel that once connected them, is viewed by the Amah Mutsun and many other California indigenous people as a racist symbol that glorifies the domination and dehumanization of their ancestors. It is being removed at the request of the Amah Mutsun, with support from UCSC faculty members, students, and administrators.

The El Camino Real bell at UCSC campus is one of hundreds of the cast-iron markers on public display throughout California. "These bells are deeply painful symbols that celebrate the destruction, domination and erasure of our people," explains Valentin Lopez, Chair of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band. "They are constant reminders that our people, and our history, continue to be disregarded to this day."

"The true history of the California mission system has never been told," states Lopez. "It is shameful that these places where our ancestors were enslaved, whipped, raped, tortured and exposed to fatal diseases have been whitewashed and converted into tourist attractions."

Lopez and other Amah Mutsun tribal members draw a parallel between the movement to topple Confederate statues and their own reckoning with mission bell markers. In both cases, what are presented as benign historical markers are in fact deeply political symbols which shape public perception, enshrining distorted visions of the past and obscuring historic crimes.

Two acceptable options have been identified by the Amah Mutsun for disposal of the bell— it can either` be placed in a museum setting and properly contextualized with an explanation of its removal from the public sphere, or, it can be melted down and "recycled for peaceful purposes."

The Amah Mutsun hope that the unearthing of this El Camino Real Bell—the first such official removal, to the best of their knowledge—will be "the first domino," launching a series of removals that will result in the elimination of all Mission Bell markers from public display.

Location of removal ceremony: Gather on the north side of the Hahn Student Services building on the UC Santa Cruz campus at 9:30am. One-day "A" permits, for parking, can be purchased at the kiosk at the main entrance to campus.

BACKGROUND:

For the Indians who toiled in California's mission compounds the ringing of the bell regimented an iron-clad schedule of forced prayer and compulsory labor. The bell was a potent symbol of the domination of the Catholic Church and the Spanish state over all aspects of the lives of the indigenous people who were forced to live "under the bell."

In the early 20th century, a consortium of developers, automobile promoters and civic boosters seeking to expand tourism and settlement in California began promoting a romantic and fanciful vision of a "golden age" of the region's Hispanic past. The symbol of a mission bell on a shepherd's staff was chosen to mark the route of a new state highway following the mythical path of the so-called "Royal Road," or El Camino Real, linking the 21 missions of California, which were fashioned into profit-making tourist destinations.

"Our Tribe, the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, objects to all symbols that attempt to honor and glorify the persons and institutions that were responsible for the capture, enslavement, abuse, and killing of our ancestors and the theft of our land."  —Valentin Lopez, Chair, Amah Mutsun Tribal Band

-Saturday, June 1st, 6pm: Sabine Silver

Sabine Silver is a solo performing avant garde vocalist and classically trained harpist presenting a dreamy and dramatic spectacle called The Haunted Theatre.

"The juxtaposition of her utopian anarchist spirit and the otherworldly and angelic qualities of the harp leave in the dust more traditional approaches to this classical instrument and forge new pathways within the genres of ethereal gothic and modern psychedelia. The intensity of the music expresses richly felt rock and roll interpretations of her own making and influences.

"Sabine creates unusual song structures that beckon the listener to her home planet upon memorable and ethereal dark romantic pathways, worlds all their own.

Combining different keys throughout her compositions and utilizing gracefully the fully levered quality of her celtic harp, Sabine's music is theatrical and sensual; grounded and relevant to the age we are living in.

In live performance, in the magnetic quality of her live recordings, and through the medium of sound she channels an evocative energy of old world propensity that penetrates the caverns of the heart and calls deeply to the colorful spectrum of human experience and imagination."

Other writing for galleries and museum catalogs includes Banlieusard, a commissioned book-length text for Artspeak, as well as Untitled (a treatise on form), a limited edition published by 2nd Floor Projects. More art writing can be found in Art Practical, Hyperallergic, Fillip and the Cica Museum's New Media Art 2017: Back to Nature, as well as in catalogs and monographs for the Dietch Projects, the Or gallery and Center A among others.

Her writing on literature can be found in Formes Poetiques Contemporaines, With + Stand and Jacket2, and her poems appear in The Chicago Review, Fence, Elderly, Armed Cell, The Capilano Review and Action, Yes! among other publications. Writing sometimes manifests as moving image or sound. Video, sound work and text pieces have screened or shown at the Visible Verse Festival, Krowswork gallery, Southern Exposure, Gauss PDF, and 2nd Floor Projects. Ludic Loops is her current collaborative video project.

Anne Lesley writes about images, form, beauty, invisibility, formlessness, abjection, political emotion. Recently, she's written on Juliana Huxtable, Ana Mendieta, Janet Cardiff, Ragnar Kjartansson, Dolores Dorantes, Etel Adnan, Ronaldo Wilson and others. She created and curated the innovative Chroma Reading Series for text based artists, poets and researchers when she lived in Vancouver, British Columbia.

**An artist, translator, and teacher, Jennifer Scappettone was born and raised in New York. The recipient of a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2005, she has lived in Italy, Virginia, Japan, California, and Chicago. Her collections of poetry are the chapbooks Err-Residence (2007), Beauty (Is the New Absurdity) (2007), and Thing Ode / Ode oggettuale (2008), translated into Italian with Marco Giovenale, as well as the book-length From Dame Quickly (2009) and The Republic of Exit 43 (Atelos, 2016).

In her project "Neosuprematist Webtexts" (2008–2009), Scappettone combined filmed stills and fragments of text; selections of the work were included in a show curated by the visual poet Helen White at festivals in Brussels and Ghent. Collagelike practices infuse Scappettone's From Dame Quickly, which poet Charles Bernstein described as "translation, collage, prose poem, lyric invention, periodic convolute, imploded syntax and discursive veers."

Scappettone's poetry has appeared in the anthologies The Best American Poetry 2004, The City Visible: Chicago Poetry for the New Century (2007), Zoland Annual (2008), Novas Poéticas de Resistencia (2013), EX.IT: Materiali fuori contesto (2013), The Arcadia Project: North American Postmodern Pastoral, new media section (2014), The Best American Experimental Writing 2016, and others. As a guest editor, Scappettone featured Italian poetry in the journal Aufgabe #7 in 2008, and she is editor of PennSound Italiana. Her translations of the work of Amelia Rosselli from the Italian were published in Locomotrix: Selected Poetry and Prose of Amelia Rosselli, and received the Raiziss/De Palchi Prize from the Academy of American Poets. Scappettone teaches at the University of Chicago and is a visiting scholar at Stanford University.

And from our neighbor the Bike Church! 
"We are having a huge yard sale Saturday June 1st, 9am-noon.
Hella cheap stuff! Help us clear out years of collected bike parts. 25-99% off complete bikes, rare parts, kids stuff, bike clothes... Raffle, free stuff too!" 

And here's info about an event that some friends of SubRosa are putting on:
Thursday, May 30th, 7pm: An Economy for All of Us: Wealth Through Employee Ownership at 
Resource Center for Nonviolence, 612 Ocean St 

In an era of massive income and wealth inequality, there is a solution: worker cooperatives! Worker cooperatives are businesses that are owned and operated by the workers rather than an individual, CEO, or private investor. Such models have enormous success in the Bay area and in many other parts of the world. Worker cooperatives not only generate greater wealth for those who keep the gears turning but also for the community at large. Come learn more about what worker cooperatives are, how they work, and how local government can play a role in supporting the growing movement!

-Saturday May 25th: 3 events!

     12 - 3pm: Really Really Free Market

Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! ... and the part of the intention of this happening is that we all have something to share with each other... that we can freely give, without monetizing our offerings to each other. That we can give and take and give and that this isn't about keeping score or an account of flows back and forth. We have so much to offer each other, and it can be a joy to see someone be excited about something we are giving away too.

So come to the Really Really Free Market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market. https://www.facebook.com/events/325244684816265/
