“Contagem Regressiva: Remoções"
“Rio Olympics 2016”

The program will also feature statements from members of the coalition, from various Angelenos who remember the damage done in 1984 and can recognize the invitation to displace, gentrify, and militarize that the 2028 Olympics present as well.
The screening will follow a bike ride called Skidrowvia - led by LA CAN - which will meet at 4:30pm and leave at 5pm. The ride will hit various locations in the Downtown area - on both sides of the Dirty Divide - and will show the riders various other landmarks in the area's gentrification.
You can come to either event - or both. Bring your own bike.
