Event: Fifth Annual Social Uprising Resistance & Grassroots Encouragement Film Festival

Event: The Fifth Annual International Social Uprising Resistance & Grassroots Encouragement Film Festival is taking place now! It runs from May 17th through May 23rd, 2011. Admission is free and snacks are free... because everything in the world should be free!

Mission Statement: Peace, Equality and Solidarity. Although political protests give us the opportunity to unite our thoughts in opposition to the route which our governments are taking us, many of us all over the world have come to the realization that the lack of peace in the world and the problems that we see increasing every day have a foundation deeper than the Republicans, the Democrats, or a few select multinational corporations. What we face are institutionalized problems, problems which can only be confronted at the root, researched and solved by imaginative and broad based, non-violent social movements - not ballot boxes.
