Meadow Singers is the musical project of Mathew Harmon, a singer-songwriter based in Santa Cruz, CA.  His songs invoke images of wild places, of water rushing, and wind rustling through tree canopies.  The music of Meadow Singers is that of Longing; for home, for love, for the unknown question waiting to be asked.  https://meadowsingers.bandcamp.com

Bright Raven tours her new EP, "Go," a collection of songs from her inner child. Compared to the likes of Feist and Jeff Buckley. Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/user-825907350/albums 

Kite Hands Glowing - is the musical project of Nadia Lucia Peralta alone and sometimes with friends. Kite Hands Glowing is my heart's lil melodies coming out onto piano and guitar, and lately has been getting amplified. This show in particular is going to be an homage to Crete, Greece and Ajachamen Territory, Dana Point, CA, which look remarkably alike, and which I had the pleasure of swimming in both their waters this summer. Come check it out!  https://kitehandsglowing.bandcamp.com

-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.

Trump has threatened, after July 4th, to send ICE to do roundups of people who crossed the border by necessity and not necessarily by permission.  That means people in our community here may be targeted.  Here's some info about how to offer support.  From YARR (Your Allied Rapid Response) https://www.facebook.com/YARRsantacruz/ and Sanctuary Santa Cruz https://www.facebook.com/sanctuarysantacruz/ // And here's a few readings with more info HOW U.S. CITIZENS CAN SUPPORT THE IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY DURING TRUMP'S ATTACK? https://weareheretostay.org/ifyouseeice/ and AS TRUMP ANNOUNCES MASS IMMIGRATION RAID, DOCUMENTS SHOW HOW ICE USES ARREST QUOTAS https://theintercept.com/2019/07/03/ice-raids-arrest-quotas/ // There's so much news about the atrocities taking place daily... from the concentration camps on the border, how children are being neglected, border patrol vile secret facebook group and so on. // And there are many stories about how we can care for each other, how people persevere and continue to push against walls that will one day fall.
