It is the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Partition Plan, which proposed creating that homeland. Fifty years ago, Israel took control of the West Bank and Gaza after the Six-Day War. Ten years ago, the blockade by land, air and sea of the Gaza strip began, by which Israel controls movement of people and goods in and out of the Strip.

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "Testament of Youth"

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "Testament of Youth"

Anchored by an extraordinary performance from Alicia Vikander, James Kent's "Testament of Youth" bears comparison to many other superbly mounted costume dramas backed by the BBC, but this one has a special distinction: it chronicles the horrors that World War I inflicted on a generation of young English people from a woman's perspective. 

Though the war was followed by a slew of books about it, Vera Brittan's account of her own experiences has been regarded as unique. It did not appear in the war's immediate aftermath. It was only later, inspired by filmmaker John Grierson's coining of the term "documentary," that she decided to craft a nonfiction account of her experiences, which became an instant bestseller upon its publication in 1933. 

In turning the material into a two-hour movie, screenwriter Juliette Towhidi understandable elected to sacrifice some of the book's expansiveness by focusing on events leading up to the war and the war itself, while giving a glimpse of Brittain's activities as an ardent pacifist afterwards. 

Connecting the dots. Lively discussion follows. Always free and open to the public.

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "First Daughter and the Black Snake"

  • 4200 Cedar Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In honor of Indigenous People's Day - WAMM will be watching, "First Daughter and the Black Snake." 

Winona LaDuke believes Big Oil is the black snake predicted in indigenous prophecy to bring the earth's destruction. When new oil pipelines threaten sacred wild rice lakes, Winona dreams of riding her horse against the current of oil, organizing a spiritual ride, "because the horse can kill a snake."

 

The "Prophecy of the 7th Fire" says a "black snake" will bring destruction to the earth. We will have a choice of two paths. One is scorched and one is green. For Winona LaDuke (Ojibwe for "first daughter"), the "black snake" is oil trains and pipelines. When she learns that Canadian-owned Enbridge plans to route a new pipeline through land granted to her tribe in an 1855 Treaty, she and her community spring into action to save the sacred wild rice lakes and preserve their traditional way of life. Winona is a daughter, mother, grandmother and Executive Director of Honor the Earth, a native-led environmental justice organization. Directed, Produced and Director of Photography Keri Pickett. 

Free Popcorn! Lively discussion follows. Always free and open to the public.

Snap, Crackle, and Stop: A benefit for Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers Peace Essay Scholarship

In 2016, three veterans, a storyteller, a musician and visual artist, did a show at Patrick's Cabaret, using great art like Caravaggio's JUDITH AND HOLOFERNES, to explore the questions: IS IT EVER RIGHT O KILL TO STOP EVIL? 

On October 1st, THE SEQUEL, Gerald Ganann, Steve Gates, and Larry Johnson, will look artistically at nonviolent force to stop injustice. Each will use storytelling, music, and art. The audience decides which is the real storyteller, or musician, or artist. 

The evening includes Armistice Bell Ringing by Veterans for Peace, as well as cameo appearance by Steve McKeown, explaining why KELLOGG BOULEVARD has absolutely no connection to cereal that talks. 

Contact larryjvfp@gmail.com to RSVP. 

Come early for Happy Hour specials from 3-6pm!

Mizna proudly presents the 12th Twin Cities Arab Film Festival, September 27 to October 1—a chance to see thoughtfully curated films from Arab and Arab American filmmakers. Established in 2003, the Arab Film Fest has featured local debuts of independent narrative and documentary features and short films from more than fifteen countries. Over its twelve editions, our festival has created a necessary space in the Twin Cities for Arab and Muslim filmmakers to tell their stories in beautiful and innovative ways. This year, our project feels more urgent than ever, as our programming serves a response to national and international policies that target the lives of immigrants and refugees, while also tackling the global threat of xenophobia and Islamophobia. The festival launches on Wednesday, September 27 at the Walker Art Center with the screening of Tramontane by Lebanese filmmaker Vatche Boulghourjian, followed by a multimedia performance celebrating the release of local Syrian musician Hello Psychaleppo’s new bird-themed album Toyour at the Walker Art Center's Garden Terrace. Screenings continue at the The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul's Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main Theatre. Co-presented with The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul and the Walker Art Center.

Every Church a Peace Church September Potluck- Marie Braun on "Banning Nuclear Weapons: Now is the Time!"

Marie Braun is a long time peace and justice activist and has been a member of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) for 35 years. Following a trip to Iraq in 1998, she became involved in grassroots organizing against the sanctions on that country and later against the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria and in protesting many other U.S. threats of war. She is a member of the WAMM End War Committee, which is spearheading the WAMM Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons.

Marie's presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion on what faith communities can do to support the recent Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and rid the world of the threat they pose to the environment, to future generations and to the very survival of humanity.

Middle East Peace Now Presents: Dr. Michael Andregg "Peace in the Middle East: Some Nuclear and Demographic Dimensions"

With a PhD. in genetics and several years as a researcher in that field, Dr. Michael Andregg decided that war was a larger public health hazard than the rare diseases he was studying and turned his attention to studies in peace and justice. As a professor at the University of St. Thomas, he has followed this path for the past 25 years.

Through the non-profit Ground Zero Minnesota he led production of 57 educational videos on this subject and sponsored about 5000 programs for young scholars in the upper Midwest. He has published numerous articles and his book, "On the Causes of War," which won a national peace writing award in 1999.

Dr. Andregg believes the "gorilla in the room" of Middle East peace is WMD, including nuclear, and there is one nuclear nation in the Middle East: Israel. That gorilla has an equally ominous twin: millions of teenage males maturing into desperate circumstances.

Dr. Andregg's self-defined mission at all times is "education for informed democracy and human survival."

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train"

In these troubled times, Howard Zinn is insipiring a new generation. This acclaimed film looks at the amazing life of the renowned historian, activist and author. Following his early days as a shipyard labor organizer and bombardier in World War II, Zinn became an academic rebel and leader of civil disobedience in a time of institutionalized racism and war. His influential writings shine light on and bring voice to factory workers, immigrant laborers, African Americans, Native Americans and the working poor. 

Featuring rare archival materials and interviews with Zinn and colleagues such as Noam Chomsky, You Can't Be Neutral  captures the essence of this extraordinary man who has been a catalyst for progressive change for more than 60 years. 

Narrated by Matt Damon. Featuring music by Pearl Jam, Woody Guthrie and Billy Bragg!
