​'Fighting For Our Lives' Film Screening

FoE Fighting for our Lives poster 2013.jpgCOD Friends of the Earth will hold a screening of the film Fighting For Our Lives' at 1:30 p.m. on the Mecca/Thermal campus April 11, 2013.

Filmed in Coachella during the grape boycott of the early seventies,  this eerie documentary depicts the violence and tension that erupted between striking UFW farmworkers and Teamster thugs.

All students, staff, and community are invited to view film along with the special guests.

A special panel discussion is scheduled after the screening with Coachella Valley veteran fieldworkers who were right in the thick of things and lived to tell about it.

For more information contact, Jay Lewenstein at 760.346-8041. Ext. 5637.
