TEACH-IN ABOUT SAN QUINTIN
The Globaliphobics Network of the Californias invites you to participate in a
Teach-in about San Quintin. As part of the Globaliphobics campaign to support
the struggles of the indigenous farm-workers of this region, we will spend
two days learning from Baja California professors, NGO workers and directly
from San Quintin activists about: the migration of workers to the San
Quintin, the labor and environmental conditions, and the history of union and
social movement struggles.
The teach-in will take place February 10-11, 2001 in Baja California. The
first sessions of the Teach-in will take place in Ensenada on Saturday.
Participants will spend the night there before travelling to San Quintin on
Sunday, returning to Tijuana/San Diego late Sunday night.
Participants will meet in Ensenada at 12 noon on February 10th at the Plaza
Cívica (a plaza with statues of three large presidential heads). (Please see
below regarding carpooling.)
The San Quintin Sub-committee of the Globalifobics will provide help
coordinating logistics, attempting to keep the costs as low as possible.
