Say NO to US Intervention in Venezuela: Featuring Steve Ellner

Say NO to US Intervention in Venezuela: Featuring Steve Ellner
Saturday, November 10th at 5pm @ 4200 Cedar Avenue S. in Minneapolis
The Trump Administration has Venezuela in its sights; it has imposed economic sanctions against Venezuela, included Venezuela in the Muslim Ban, and is openly planning a coup of Venezuela's elected leadership. Trumps wants to punish Venezuela for choosing a different path from US imperialism. Meanwhile the US media talks about US intervention as if it would be "humanitarian" for the people of Venezuela. 
Steve Ellner has taught economic history and political science at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela since 1977. He is on a national speaking tour to help the anti-war and the Latin America solidarity movement learn about the realities on the ground in Venezuela. 
Organized by the Anti-War Committee and co-sponsored by the MN Immigrant Action Committee, MN Peace Action Coalition, & Women Against Military Madness.

Rikers: An American Jail

Rikers: An American Jail

Join the WAMM Movie Committee as we present “Rikers: An American Jail” on Monday, November 12 at 7 pm at 4200 Cedar Ave in Minneapolis.

The United States is facing a crisis of mass incarceration with over 2.2 million people packed into its jails and prisons. To understand the human toll of this crisis, Rikers Island is a good place to start. Of the more than 7,500 people detained at Rikers Island on any given day, almost 80% have not yet been found guilty or innocent of the charges they face. All are at risk in the pervasive culture of violence that forces people to come to terms with what they must do for their own survival. RIKERS: AN AMERICAN JAIL, a riveting new award-winning documentary from Bill Moyers, brings you face to face with men and women who have endured incarceration at Rikers Island. Their stories, told direct to camera, vividly describe the cruel arc of the Rikers experience—from the shock of entry, to the extortion and control exercised by other inmates, the oppressive interaction with corrections officers, the beatings and stabbings, the torture of solitary confinement and the many challenges of returning to the outside world.  

(2016, directors: Mark BenjaminMarc Levin; 1 hr 10 mn, Documentary)

Connecting the dots. . . A chance to discuss the film follows the showing.

Always FREE and open to the public. 

ALL ARE WELCOME! Free popcorn!

It's time to march again.

We are outraged. We are organized. They forgot that 5 million women lit the world on fire two years ago. On January 19, 2019, we’re going to remind them when we flood the streets of Washington, D.C., and cities across the globe. Save the date: The #WomensWave is coming, and we’re sweeping the world forward with us.

Women's March on the Pentagon

Women's March on the Pentagon will take place beginning at noon on Saturday, October 20 in Washington, DC

To Confront the Bi-Partisan War Machine

In response to the continuing march of military aggression by the USA and to put an antiwar agenda back on the table of activists, we are calling for a Women's (and allies) March on the Pentagon tentatively set for the 51st anniversary of the 1967 big antiwar event in DC and subsequent march on the Pentagon that had 50,000 people! We are also inspired by the 1980 Women's March On The Pentagon.

If you don't like Trump (and who doesn't), we have something for you too! Just think TRUMP'S BLOATED FINGER IS ON THE NUCLEAR BUTTON! 

However, this is NOT, nor will it turn into a Get Out the Vote Rally for the Democrat 1/2 of the War Party. This is a principled call to action against the entire rotten Empire in solidarity with oppressed and occupied women (and their families) all over the world.

This is a clearinghouse for volunteering and putting together the event---it will be updated regularly as more information is added.

"Valentino's Ghost: Why We Hate Arabs and Muslims"

"Valentino's Ghost: Why We Hate Arabs and Muslims"

Middle East Peace Now presents the film "Valentino's Ghost: Why We Hate Arabs and Muslims" on Saturday, September 20, from 9:30 to Noon at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 700 Snelling Avenue S in St. Paul, MN.

This film features multiple action-packed  film clips inter-mingled with footage of historical events. Much like U.S. Westerns of yesteryear, films of the British and French colonial eras routinely cast Arabs not as local patriots defending their homeland, but as hostile, violent masses of the Great Unwashed, ignorantly attacking the benevolent harbingers of Civilization. 2016 video by Michael Singh Productions, Inc.
