Jennifer Flores Sternad will talk about Etcétera, the Errorista, and their actions documented in this video:
*El Ganso al Poder, Etcétera’s surrealist presidential campaign for The Goose
*The Mierdazo, a 2002 protest at Argentina’s National Congress
*Etcetera’s collaborations with the human rights group H.I.J.O.S. in two escraches (acts of public denunciation that seek a form of social justice not beholden to the state’s legal and judicial institutions)
*Otra Realidad es Posible - A Comer / ! Another Reality is Possible - Let’s Eat!
with a medieval-looking army that carries giant knives and forks to storm transnational companies that don’t close on May 1st
This will be followed by a conversation about this year’s May Day-- an opportunity to report back and discuss the actions, marches, and protests in Los Angeles and elsewhere.
Etcétera TV is in Spanish with English subtitles.
