Left Book Group

The next meeting of the Left Book Group will be on Tuesday, June 19, at 1 pm at Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S, in Minneapolis.

The book we chose at the first meeting is Michael Parenti's Blackshirts & Reds, a book that "explores some of the big issues of our time: fascism, capitalism, communism, revolution, democracy and ecology - terms bandied about but seldom explored in the original and exciting way that has become Michael Parenti's trademark." I think, with this book, we will finally get to the heart of what distinguishes leftists from liberals. It will be an interesting discussion!

If you are interested in joining, please contact Janet Contursi: 612-655-1207 or jancon-tursi@msn.com

The Great Book Robbery film

The Great Book Robbery film

"The Great Book Robbery" is the final film in the 2018 Palestine Film Festival to be held on Tuesday, June 19 at 7 pm at Bethel Lutheran Church, 1321 North Ave. in Northfield, MN.

When the Arab-Israeli war raged in 1948, librarians from Israel’s National Library followed soldiers as they entered Palestinian homes in towns and villages. Their mission was to collect as many valuable books and manuscripts as possible. They are said to have gathered more than 30,000 books from Jerusalem and another 30,000 from Haifa and Jaffa. Officials called it a “cultural rescue operation,” but for Palestinians it was cultural theft. It was only in 2008 when an Israeli PhD student stumbled across documents in the national archive that the full extent of the 'collection' policy was revealed. Using eyewitness accounts, this film tries to understand why thousands of books appropriated from Palestinian homes still languish in the Israeli National Library vaults and why they have not been returned to their rightful owners. Was it cultural preservation or theft?

Free and open to the public. The film will be followed by discussion and brief question and answer period.

Sponsored by Northfield for Justice in Palestine/Israel. For more information about the event or NJP, visit the website at http://www.njpmn.org/ or by e-mail at info@njpmn.org

Stand with Muslims Emergency Demo

This is an ON-CALL protest as we await the decision expected in mid-to-late June. Invite your friends and stay tuned to this page for more details!

Emergency Demonstration at the Federal Building at 6 pm on the day a decision is announced on the Supreme Court ruling on Trump's Muslim Ban.

In mid-late June, the Supreme Court will issue its decision in Trump v. Hawai'i—deciding the fate of Trump's Muslim Ban. Next Decision Days are this Thursday June 14th, Next Mondays 18th and 25th. Its possible other decision days could be added.

CAIR-MN Will host a press conference at 11:30am post decision and then followed by a rally outside the federal court house. 

No matter what the Supreme Court decides, it's crucial that we have a visible, strong presence across the country of people who care about Muslim and refugee communities and oppose Trump's White Nationalist agenda. The #NoMuslimBanEver campaign is calling for a national day of action whenever the decision is announced.

On the morning of the announcement, there will be a press conference at the CAIR-MN offices 2511 East Franklin Ave Suite #100, Minneapolis, MN 55406 at 11:30AM

Stay tuned to this page for updates!
