A Dialogue with Occupy El Barrio & OWS
“Dignity is an Echo in the Heartbeat of the People”
(Unanimously Endorsed by the General Assembly of Occupy Wall St, The People of Color working group (POCCUPY), Immigrant/worker working group, Outreach working group, Spanish working group (OWS en Español), Labor Outreach Committee & the Anti- Racism Allies Group)
The humble and simple community of El Barrio (East Harlem), NYC opens its arms to all the good-hearted people of Occupy Wall St. and invites them to join us in our corner of the world for an evening of dialogue. We will share our stories of resistance and memories of victory, as we bring to life our dreams of a world of justice, dignity, and democracy.
Movement for Justice in El Barrio is an immigrant- and people of color-led, grassroots community organization that fights for dignity and against neoliberal displacement from East Harlem to Chiapas and beyond.
For seven years, Movement has built a 700-member-strong, local movement for dignity that has taken on and defeated multi-national corporations and corrupt politicians. Committed to the principles of autonomy and self-determination, Movement practices participatory democracy and horizontal decision-making on a community-wide scale. As part of the Zapatista-initiated The Other Campaign, Movement fights for liberation of all marginalized groups from below and to the left.
