Latest About South Philly Barbacoa
The freedom fighters at South Philly Barbacoa and PAUWR, Cristina Martinez and Benjamin Miller, are organizing Philly restaurants for a May 1st general strike that will highlight the contributions of undocumented immigrants in the restaurant industry.
The restaurant will be closed on May 1st as part of the planned #ADayWithoutImmigrants strike. And several of the city’s top restaurants have joined them.
South Philly Barbacoa has always been about more than just tacos. One of the most openly political restaurants in the city, owners Ben Miller and Christina Martinez have always used their food as a way to engage with the community and their community to try to affect change in the wider world.
So it’s really no surprise that they’ve begun using Monday nights as “teach-ins” at South Philly Barbacoa–bringing in a series of speakers for a program they’re calling “Justice and Agua Fresca”.
