The Anastasio Project: Anniversary of a Lynching

May 2015 marked the fifth anniversary of the murder of Anastasio Hernandez-Rojas. Thanks to support from EastSide Arts Alliance and the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth, NAKA was able to bring The Anastasio Project to perform at the Day of Action to Stop Border Brutality in solidarity with Maria Puga, Hernandez-Rojas' widow, and many other victims speaking out against injustice.
