DAFilms + Taiwan International Documentary Festival are running a collaborative free week-long online screening of eight documentaries from Taiwan's Green Team (1986-1990) guerrilla media collective, which captured massive social movements + government violence throughout their active period. The one about successfully fighting off DuPont is next on my list.
Incredible footage, exactly zero of which I'd seen before.
I also co-authored a piece with Ngakiya Camara about today's shutdown of Boeing, near St. Charles, Missouri, carried out by Dissenters and other groups acting in solidarity with Palestine. https://truthout.org/articles/palestine-solidarity-activists-block-boeings-doors-to-stop-delivery-of-bombs/

Went to see a documentary about the organizing and resistance of a village in the Sanrizuka Struggle (https://www.nga.gov/calendar/film-programs/art-films-special-screenings/sanrizuga-heta-village.html/2023/10/28/1400.html) and it was a good reminder of what solidarity in struggle can look like. Have been feeling very atomized and alienated lately and it's good to remember this is a structural dynamic and other ways exist!!
