Followed by refreshments and music with Los Mocosos, LIVE! at New
College Cultural Center- 766 Valencia St., SF - This event is free!
Granito de Arena is a story of resistance - the story of hundreds
of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-
violent movement took Mexico by surprise, and who have endured
brutal repression in their 25-year struggle for social and
economic justice in Mexico's public schools.
Granito de Arena gives voice to the increasing number of teachers
who believe their movement is in crisis and who are exploring
community-based alternatives in their struggle to defend public
education. Featuring a driving soundtrack by DJ Food, Slowrider,
PlanB, and Los Mocosos, Granito de Arena fuels indignation,
inspires action, and raises important questions about democracy,
sovereignty, and the universal right to public education.
