APRIL MOVIE: ENEMIES OF PEACE, April 8, 7 p.m.

Enemies of Peace: Preventing the Next War in the Middle East serves as a warning sign of the impending threat of escalating war, specifically in the Middle East, especially considering the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Yemen and the massive proliferation of arms sales to several Middle Eastern countries by our government; in addition the increasing number of U.S. Military bases and direct U.S. military involvement in the region illustrate the deepening involvement of the U.S in a widening conflict zone. 

Sadly, our governmental officials as well as the public are not sufficiently informed in regards to the dynamics of the conflicts in the region. Featuring commentary by Medea Benjamin, Max Blumenthal, Andrew Bacevich, Abby Martin and others, Enemies of Peace offers insights and solutions not often expressed by the mainstream media.

MAY MOVIE: HIT & STAY, MAY 13, 7 p.m.

On May 17, 1968, nine Catholic activists, including Daniel and Philip Berrigan, entered a Selective Service office in suburban Catonsville, Maryland, dragged stacks of Draft Board records out into the parking lot, and set them on fire with homemade napalm. They then prayed, and waited to be arrested. In doing so, they kindled a wave of similar protests against the Vietnam War across the country that swept up dozens of participants and inspired thousands, and then millions. Hit & Stay tells the story of the nine and those who joined them in protesting the war. Catonsville galvanized the nonviolent antiwar resistance away from protest marches and toward direct actions by ordinary citizens against draft boards. Through interviews with many of the participants (as well as observers Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn), Hit & Stay explores the early actions, the activists going to prison or going underground, the FBI’s pushback against the movement, the escalating scale and stakes, and the ultimate victory of the protesters in the trial of the Camden 28. A documentary film by Joe Tropea and Skizz Cyzyk.
