Latinx heritage month final events
This weekend we are celebrating the final events of Latinx heritage month. You'll want to come down to Southside community center for the Dia de la raza 11:30-5:30 on Saturday October 12, followed by a movie in the gym at 6:00. On Sunday October 13 at 2:00 pm in Cinemapolis is the final film of the Cine con culture film festival, "Máxima." Máxima Acuña de Chaupe's fight against the American Newmont Mining Corporation in the Peruvian Highlands. Acuña de Chaupe has been fighting against this giant gold mining company for years and has become a symbol of indigenous resistance against global capitalism. Acuña de Chaupe won the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize in 2016 for her work protecting the lake near her home in the Andes. This documentary film tells the story of her struggle. And there is "Noche de poesía" at the Sacred Root Kava Bar also on Sunday, at 6:00 pm.
