    7-9pm: Oaxaca in the Crosshairs of the Extraction Economy

Capital has its eyes set on the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca as a resource-rich node in the global economy. A proposed network of mega-projects, from mines, to wind turbines, to hydroelectric dams, to oil and gas pipelines, threatens to destroy the health and traditions of local people as well as the already fragile integrity of the region's ecosystems. The talk will look into how this plunder is being carried out as well as what people there, many coming from Zapotec traditions of communality and autonomy, have done to stop its advance.

This month's artist at SubRosa is Campbell Steers

From Campbell Steers, In the current political climate it can be difficult to find a positive message to hold onto. It is also difficult to express distain with brevity. This political haiku project challenges that, and is meant to give the viewer a bold, empowering message. This started out as a way for me to reach out to my family and friends and encourage positive headspace and find out what issues were important to them. Then I opened it up to the greater Santa Cruz community, and at a Third Friday event at the MAH this handmade book with typewriter adjacent was available for passersby to express themselves. Here is what is important to us, in seventeen syllables.

Art is up the month of April at SubRosa! Come to SubRosa and check it out.

We appreciate any support you can offer to this anarchist community space...large and all helps!  We barely scrape by each month and feel further energized for SubRosa to be an active and supportive presence in Santa Cruz, especially in these trying times. And Thanks!

Note:  You can choose how regularly you contribute to SubRosa and the default on the website is weekly.  This can be changed to other time frames as well.  Also, the Action Network, which hosts the fundraiser requests a "tip" and this can also be adjusted from the default of 10% to "no tip" or even more.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
