    Para español vaya al final de la página.

    Dems Abroad-GDL Members & Buddies


    The “midterm” election is coming, so this is the year to nip Trump, broadcast our democratic values and use the “buddy system” to do it.

    That’s why all DA-GDL members & their friends are invited February 24 to a home & garden in Colonia Seattle. If you haven’t yet requested your ballot for this important election (all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives & 34 of 100 seats in the Senate will be contested!) this is your chance to do so, refreshed by snacks, music & camaraderie.

    And your friend? You’re asked to bring a US citizen who’s interested in DA (and not already a member) & wants to request a ballot. (Membership is free & easy, with very few strings attached.)

    When: Saturday, February 24, 4–7 pm
    Where: Home of Ricardo Barreto & Will Chapman
    Avenida “D” 654, Colonia Seattle, Zapopan

    Admittance to the event is free. Everyone who attends will be entered in a drawing for a door prize, a certificate good for $1500 pesos at a local restaurant. In addition, there will be a raffle to raise funds for increasing the vote in elections this year.

    Let us know you are coming! RSVP to Jude Wallesen at or 332-257-4558.

    Vamos a incomodar a Trump- Queremos verte el 24 de febrero en nuestra Charla en el Jardín.

    Demócratas en Extranjero-GDL. Miembros y amigos


    Las elecciones intermedias se acercan, así que este es el año para incomodar a Trump, difundir nuestros valores Demócratas e invitar a los cuates.

    Es por eso que todos los miembros de DA-GDL y sus cuates están invitados a una fiesta en el jardín en la colonia Seattle. Si aún no has solicitado tu boleta para votar en esta elección tan importante (todos los 435 asientos de la Cámara de Representantes y 34 de los 100 asientos en el Senado serán elegidos) esta es tu oportunidad para hacerlo mientras disfrutas de botanas, música y camaradería.

    Y tus cuates? Te pedimos que invites a ciudadanos estadounidenses que estén interesados en DA (que aún no sean miembros) y quieran solicitar su boleta. (La membresía es gratuita y fácil de obtener con sólo algunos pocos requisitos).

    Cuándo: Sábado, 24 de febrero, de 4 a 7 pm
    Dónde: En la casa de Ricardo Barreto y Will Chapman
    Avenida “D” 654, colonia Seattle, Zapopan

    La entrada es libre. Cada uno de los asistentes participará en el sorteo de un certificado de regalo bueno por $1,500 pesos para un restaurant local. Además, podrás adquirir boletos para la rifa organizada con el fin de recaudar fondos para apoyar la difusión del voto en las elecciones de este año.

    Confirma tu asistencia!

    Movie Meet/Reunión de Cine

    Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

    Capitalism: A Love Story examina el impacto de la dominación corporativa en la vida diaria de los estadounidenses ( y por ende, del resto del mundo). La película va desde el interior del país hasta los pasillos del poder en Washington y al epicentro financiero en Manhattan. Con un tono de humor y a la vez de indignacion la película plantea la pregunta: Cuál es el precio que los Estados Unidos pagan por su amor al capitalismo? Las familias pagan el precio con sus empleos, sus casas y sus ahorros. Moore llega hasta el interior de los hogares de la gente común cuyas vidas han sido trastornadas; y va a Washington y a todos lados en busca de una respuesta. Lo que encuentra son los tan conocidos síntomas de una historia de amor fracasada: mentiras, abuso, traicion... y la pérdida de 14,000 empleos cada día. Capitalism: A Love Story también nos muestra lo que podría ser un futuro más esperanzador. Quiénes somos y por qué nos comportamos de la manera en que lo hacemos.
    Capitalism: A Love Story examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore goes into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal...and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. Capitalism: A Love Story also presents what a more hopeful future could look like. Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?
