One of our favorite book stores in town is Resistencia, located at 1801-A, South First Street in Austin.

This Friday, November 6 at 7pm, they are hosting CineResistencia and present ¡No Marcharan! : a documentary film screening & photo exhibit of The Day the Klan Marched (Sol Rojo Productions)

Original uncut documentary of the day the Ku Klux Klan marched to the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin, Texas on February 19, 1983.   Includes footage of the Brown Berets call to action and the Austin City Council meeting vote giving the KKK permission to march.


The documentary also shows the violent response of the Austin Police Department to the engaging yet peaceful counter Anti-Klan march organized by a concerned black and brown citizens and organizations and their white allies.  Along with documentary screening, photos of the KKK march and the Anti-Klan march taken by Gilberto Rivera will be on exhibit.

A discussion immediately following the screening will include participants in the counter march and the producers of the documentary, Jane and Gilberto Rivera of Sol Rojo Productions.
