Franklin Lopez is in Buffalo this Friday

One day, about five years ago, I was clicking around the web looking for something and I found something else. Without really trying to I found myself watching the film, Join the Resistance: Fall in Love by Franklin Lopez. It's probably not work safe, but it was extremely inspiring.
So I subsribed to his YouTube channel and that led me to checking in on his website fairly regularly. Over the course of the next several years I found a lot of my ideas being heavily influenced by the film clips that he was churning out. In 2009 I recorded a CD and asked him if he would mind me using his voice on it. I asked my neighbor Roxanne to record a vocal piece for it also. And I also asked my friend Leslie James Pickering, who's activism I have a deep and abiding respect for, to record a piece for my CD as well.
At the tail end of last year I read a post from Franklin Lopez that he was giving up his appartment, buying a van, and touring around North America to promote his new movie END:CIV which is based on the books ENDGAME I and II by Derrick Jensen. I suggested that he should come through Buffalo and invited my neighbor Roxanne to help organize it and my friend Leslie James Pickering to do a brief presentation. Roxanne has found the perfect location for it at the Adam Mickiewicz Library, and a few weeks ago Franklin Lopez stopped here in Buffalo and did an interview with Roxanne that turned out really great.
I highly, highly --and even more highly-- recommend folks stop by the Polish Library this Friday to see Franklin Lopez present END:CIV in person. And please help get the word out between now and then.
we would love to see you there,
Leslie James Pickering:
