Building Bridges of International Solidarity
Since the founding of Black Rose/Rosa Negra (BRRN) we’ve made international solidarity and especially our connections with broader Latin America a key aspect of our organization and we’re looking to take new steps in expanding that work. We’ve launching the “Building Bridges of International Solidarity” campaign to raise $2,000 which will help us bring comrades from Argentina, Brazil and Chile to our upcoming convention in August. This will help pay for flights and travel as well for hosting, food and expenses while here in the US.
Right now we are actively building and expanding our ties as Black Rose/Rosa Negra member Enrique Guerrero-López is traveling through Chile and Argentina to meet in advance with the members of the organizations that we will be hosting (See our photo collages below). We hope to use this as a stepping stone towards building long-term ties between our organizations – please donating to help us continue and to expand this work.
The fundraiser is sponsored by the External Communications-International Relations Committee (EC-IRC) and External Education Committee (EEC) of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation (BRRN).
