27] -- On Tues., July 2 from 10 to 11:30 AM, check AMLO Economics: Between the Wall and the Flood in Mexico, hosted by Center for Global Development, 2055 L St. NW, 5th Floor, WDC 20036. Tickets are at www.cgdev.org. Over the last 25 years, Mexico has benefited from robust trade and financial integration with North America and strong domestic macroeconomic and financial stability, although much remains to be done on the socioeconomic front. Against this backdrop, the economy is currently facing strong domestic and external headwinds. At home, the economy has slowed since last year, with real GDP contracting 0.2% in 1Q2019, reflecting low productivity in Mexico and softer growth in the United States. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has announced protectionist policies, which are not supportive of private investment. From the external side, the lingering uncertainties about Trump’s tariffs on Mexico's imports could have a major negative impact. The Latin American Committee on Macroeconomic and Financial Issues (CLAAF) will discuss central questions on the best policy responses to market uncertainties. A light breakfast and coffee will be available at 9:30 AM. Look at https://www.facebook.com/events/338084550202566/.

33] – On Tues., July 2 at 7 PM, there is an Alloutdc community assembly at The Potter's House, 1658 Columbia Rd. NW, WDC 20009. On July 6th, 2019, the far right and white supremacists alike will be converging at Freedom Plaza for their so-called “Demand Free Speech” rally. Organized by hate group the Proud Boys, the rally is supposed to feature speakers like rape-apologist Mike Cernovich, neo-Nazi Milo Yiannopoulis, notorious Islamophobe Laura Loomer, western Chauvinist Gavin McGuiness, Trump’s former campaign advisor Roger Stone, and alt-right troll Jack Posobiec. They will weaponize free speech to normalize bigotry and hateful rhetoric against communities of color, LGBTQAI2S+, migrant workers, DACA recipients, undocumented communities, Muslim and Jewish communities, and other already marginalized communities.
An anti-fascist/anti-racist response will be demonstrating to confront the alt-right. See https://www.facebook.com/events/1841643212604509/?ti=icl. Help mobilize a counter protest against the alt-right’s desire to spread hate, and open the conversation about confronting white supremacy and fascism to the community, in particular to the marginalized communities most impacted by their hate. This panel is a chance for our community to discuss why D.C. should mobilize against the Demand Free Speech rally. The speaker list will be made of organizers and activists from the DMV, of the marginalized communities that are actively being targeted and erased by the MAGA white nationalist hate speech campaign. See https://www.facebook.com/events/2715267901834914/.
