LOCATION CHANGED TO THE COMMONS IN BROOKLYN.
Please join us on the 17th of May, for a night of music and dancing, and help us kick start our fundraising campaign for “Echoes of Ghadar”, a convergence to be held in October 2013 in New York City.
The evening will feature musicians:
Arooj Aftab, Sonny Singh of Red Baraat, Golam Haroon Sarwar, poet Tanwi Nandini and DJ Cloak.
Location: Alwan for the Arts, 16 Beaver Street, 4th Floor
The event will raise funds for "Echoes of Ghadar: A Convergence of grassroots activists from South Asia to the U.S.," to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Ghadar Party, a transnational grassroots solidarity movement founded in 1913. In keeping with the Ghadar Party’s founding principles of dissent against oppression, the convergence hopes to engage discussions, on issues related to labor struggles, gender and caste violence, state repression of civil rights as well as issues related to migration and nationalism. The convergence will feature dialogue sessions bringing together South Asian and U.S. activists, and celebrate the spirit of Ghadar with music, poetry, and visual events.
