3/24/11 Oakland Gang Injunctions, Ras Ceylon, and more

Free Rapa Nui Day of Action on March 16, 2011

Join DJ LN and Selekta Lapu~Lapu as they interview Rachel Jackson about Oakland Gang Injunctions and Sri Lankan American reggae and hip hop artist Ras Ceylon with pre-release versions of his new music. And finally, we take you to the Free Rapa Nui Day of Action on March 16.

We will also have a ticket give-away (one pair) to Katchafire, a popular reggae band from Aotearoa, at the Independent on Tuesday, March 29. Tune in!

The Fukushima-based film, HULA GIRLS, will be shown on Saturday, March 26th @ 2:00, 4:30, 7:00 at VIZ Cinema in San Francisco’s Japantown. The admission is free with suggested donations of $10 that will be contributed to the JCCCNC’s Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. Based on a true story, HULA GIRLS is a heartwarming comedy about coal miners’ daughters who take on hula dancing to save their small mining village, helping the formation of Joban Hawaiian Center,  which was later to become one of Japan’s most popular theme parks.

People who would like to contribute towards the relief effort in Japan may want to consider visiting kokuajapan.org. Funds donated through this site will go to the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund set up by the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California which goes directly to community organizations  on the ground in Japan, AND if you donate through the site kokuajapan.org, an additional 50 percent of your donation will be matched.
