27] – On Tues., Nov. 25 at 7:30 PM @ Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse, 30 W. North Ave., Baltimore 21201, the Beehive Design Collective presents Mesoamérica Resiste. This is the Beehive Collective's most recently completed narrative poster, an epic project that took nine years to complete! This is the third and final installment in the Beehive’s trilogy on globalization in the Americas. The intricate, double-sided image documents resistance to the top-down development plans and mega-infrastructure projects that literally pave the way for resource extraction and free trade. While focusing on stories from Mexico and Central America, the Bees will weave a much larger narrative about ways people are fighting back against a global economy based on colonialism, land grabs, and exploitation, and building alternative economies, all over the globe – including connecting to ongoing struggles in North America. This graphics campaign also celebrates cultural and ecological diversity through a cast of characters that includes hundreds of endemic (and endangered) species of insects, animals, and plants. Call 443-602-7585. Go to http://www.redemmas.org.

28] – Get over to St. Mary's Court, 725 24th St. NW, WDC, on Wed., Nov. 26 from 7 to 8:30 PM and volunteer to review new inmate art and manuscripts and answer letters from prisons across the USA.
