Remembering Pablo «Barbanegra» Avendano: A Celebration of his Life and Influence
Sunday, July 22nd, 5-10pm
Pablo Avendano was born, raised, went to school, lived, partied, and organized here in Miami before moving to Philadelphia five years ago to relocate with his family who had moved there. He was an hijo, brother, tio, primo, friend, and comrade that was respected and loved by so many. He was taken from us in a biking accident on the evening of Saturday, May 12th at the age of 34 while working as a bike courier. Pablo was well known as a principled, committed and influential revolutionary anarchist communist organizer and activist through his writing and organizing work with FIU Students Against Sweatshops, Miami Autonomy & Solidarity, Occupy Miami, Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation, Trayvon Martin Organizing Committee, and Philly Socialists. Join many of his closest friends, family and comrades for an open mic where all are encouraged to share a song, poem, some words, or other expression to celebrate and honor Pablo, a beautiful human being, that deeply touched and profoundly influenced the lives of so many!
