The Ballad of Ricardo Flores Magón, Friday 8/9/2013

The Ricardo Flores Magón Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World is proud to host RUBÉN MARTÍNEZ, who will perform excerpts from his show, "THE BALLAD OF RICARDO FLORES MAGÓN." He will be joined by Chicano Son artist MARCO AMADOR. This show, which Martínez produced and performed at the Ford Theater and which aired on KCET, is a theatrical narrative of the life and times of the Mexican anarchist revolutionary, which unearths the radical roots of L.A. and the I.W.W.

Exiled from Mexico, the Magón brothers came to live in Los Angeles, where along with their participation in the Mexican Revolution, they joined in the working class struggles here alongside the Industrial Workers of the World. I.W.W. members joined a Magonista expedition which took control of Tijuana and other parts of Baja California in 1911.

Also performing this evening will be ROSS ALTMAN, a singer-songfighter who will play classic Wobbly songs for the working class.

Who: The L.A. General Membership Branch of the I.W.W.
What: Rubén Martínez and Marco Amador will perform excerpts from "The Ballad of Ricardo Flores Magón" with additional performance by Ross Altman.
When: Friday, August 9 at 8:00 PM
