Black Mesa Solidarity Event a Success!

As usual a bunch of peeps volunteered and were a big part of the Solidarity Cafe event being awesome. About 25 people showed up early enough to catch a screening of Broken Rainbow, a documentary about the fight of the Dineh' and Hopi peoples against Peabody Coal. After the movie we were bombarded with a number of delicious treats including Strawberry-filled Crepes, Cupcakes, a Raw Pumpkin Pie, Cookies, Smoothies, Fry Bread, Egg Sandwiches, Beans and Cornbread. We also served Coffee and Tea. Once given a chance to load up, a few of our friends fresh back from the road picked up instruments and treated us to some ditties. Allison Appel, Doug Fur, Niki Berger and Luke Romano stepped up after Rudy Cortese was unable to make it(maybe next time). Big kid drinks were served as well and Missing Parts took the stage and kicked out the jams for about an hour. After the live music was done DJ Theresa Wild set the tone and many of us shook our rumps late into the night. There was an increase of about $300 from last year's event showing that Tucsonan's are getting better at putting events together and their also showing a much bigger interest in supporting the many fights against white supremacy and colonialism. Thanks to all who came out!
