THIS WEAPON HAS A HEART! An evening of local music & radio stories on Honduras resistance.
Wednesday, September 28, $5 suggested donation. 7PM till. @ Media Island, 816 Adams St. SE

Caitlin Payne Roberts- "I got back from Honduras a couple of weeks ago after getting to know folks from 6 community radio stations, doing a lot of interviews, grabbing resistance music files, and recording live music. I'm putting it all together to create an AUDIO documentary, that's no video, to broadcast on over a dozen radio stations internationally. It's about Honduran community radio spitting in the face of state terror. I'm crafting the documentary, which is called THIS WEAPON HAS HEART or ESTE ARMA TIENE CORAZÔN, in two versions, one in Spanish and one in English.

The title refers to the fact that at each of the 6 stations I visited, I was told that community RADIO IS THE WEAPON OF CHOICE for indigenous, campesino, and Garifuna groups in land struggles. During this tour I will share what I experienced with activists nationwide and encourage thinktanks on actions we can take, such as forming local anti-militarization campaigns, or starting our own community radio stations, to pressure the U.S. government to drain military funding to Honduras and end human rights abuses in Central America.

So on Wednesday Sep 28, we can talk about solidarity strategies and I'll give a report back from Honduras. Then we'll play music."
