Zine created and published by Brenda Montaño

Greetings,

This past week has been a busy one for the Archives! Please consider making a donation (on our blog) or here to help the archives continue to remain grounded in the community and conduct outreach programs such as these:

Asian Pacific American Library Association Conference at USF: We presented at the Building Bridges with Organizations Community Session which brought together a wide range of community organizations and Asian American librarians from all over the country. The session provided us an opportunity to showcase our resources, meet with potential collaborators in the Asian American community, and forge connections with libraries, information centers, and other organizations.

UC Berkeley Debate Camp: We visited a high school policy debate camp at UC Berkeley to talk with students about this upcoming year’s topic which is about curtailing domestic surveillance. We watched COINTELPRO 101 to provide students with a robust historical context on the issue of government surveillance and discussing the political stakes of domestic surveillance beyond individualistic privacy rights. After the documentary we split into breakout groups to further engage certain topics and get feedback from the students. The discussions were wonderful and the students were able to connect issues such as Stop and Frisk, TSA searches and Islamophobia to larger issues of counter-insurgency and state repression.

When Freedom Becomes Responsibility- Collecting Stories of Xican@ Resistance in Colorado: A former intern, colleague and comrade Brenda Montaño debuted her zine highlighting her experiences working with us in Colorado on our upcoming documentary on the Xican@ student movement. Lots of great stuff in this zine!!! To purchase her work search SING YOUR LIFE LITERATURE PRODUCTS on etsty.com.

Shape the Future: Symbols of Resistance

Posted on by 0 comment video

We have traveled to the Southwest twice in the past year to work on an exciting project focusing on the Chican@ movement, the student martyrs and Aztlan land struggles. In May, we were honored to document an important and moving “Symbols of Resistance” gathering in Colorado, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of “los seis de Boulder” (six young Chican@ activists killed in two car bombings during the height of student and community protest in 1974) and three other activist martyrs from the same period. Three of us just returned from a second trip, this time to southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, where we shot in-depth interviews with leading activists for a documentary using this new material about the origins of the Chican@ movement and the resistance of and repression against it. This is an important story that needs to be more fully told. Check out a trailer compiled from footage shot in May.
