Brando is a slam poet from Denver, CO. It is pretty badass anarcho spoken word punk type stuff. (he also was on the slam team that won the National Poetry Slam competition in 2011) He has been doing a mix of poetry events and punk shows

Local MC P.T. Burnem will be doing the thing as well. Precise, thought provoking raps over home made bombast blasting from the beatbox.

Last night we watched the Murder of Fred Hampton at the Wingnut. About 14 people were over to watch the movie. It consists of original films taken of Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers before he was murdered, and then film documenting the murder and aftermath. The film of Fred Hampton was compelling, and it was inspiring to see him speak. His charisma and organizational abilities were obvious.

“You can jail a revolutionary, but you can’t jail a revolution”

The movie really showed how obvious the situation was, in terms of Fred Hampton having just simply been murdered. The film also showed various aspects of the work that the Illinois Black Panther Party was doing at the time. As well as the general persecution they were facing daily at the hands of the pigs- including having their headquarters burned down.

The movie reinforced the brutality of the police and state and the extreme lengths they will go to in order to destroy movements working effectively towards social justice and healthy communities. Somber but important lessons.

If you missed the movie, but want to see it, just contact us. Maybe we will do another screening of it, or you can just come over to watch it sometime.

Also, don’t forget about the other movies being shown this month and the Memorial Day BBQ and hangout memorializing those murdered by the state.

I am a revolutionary.
