_Battle in Seattle_ at 3208 Cherrywood Rd in East Austin. Viewers are also
advised to wear winter clothes. The film dramatizes the famous protests
against the World Trade Organization, and the screening, sponsored by the

screens at Resistencia Bookstore, casa de Red Salmon Arts, 1801-A S 1st St.

Mexican Americans, later a meeting place for several Chicano organizations,
before activists lost a battle with real-estate developers that led to the
building’s demolition in 1983. Chicano artist Raúl Valdez, who painted the
mural on the now-demolished building, is a guest speaker. For more
