Documentary Film screening, "Imprisoning a Generation": A discussion where respectful differences of opinions are welcome.

Friday, June 14, doors open at 7:00, the film starts at 7:30

Please join the Human Rights Awareness: Palestine/Israel Committee and the Social Justice Ministries Council of the Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church, in town of Harvard, and UU's for Justice in the Middle East, for a screening of the documentary film, Imprisoning a Generation on Friday, June 14 at the town of Harvard UU Church Fellowship Building, 7 Elm St., Harvard, MA. The doors will open 7:00, the film starts at 7:30 pm. A discussion of the film will follow the film - respectful expressions of different opinions are welcome. We will discuss H.R. 2407, "Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act."

There is no charge for admission and we will serve refreshments.

This film follows the stories of four young Palestinians who have been detained and imprisoned under Israeli Occupation practices. Their perspectives, along with the voices of their families, combine to form a lens into the entangled structures of oppression that expand well beyond the prison walls. The trailer is here.

I hope you will attend - there is a lot of disagreement about what is happening in Israel and the Palestinian Territories and what our government is supporting politically and financially. This film focuses on the children. We should know what we are supporting there - it effects who we are and impacts our relationships in the Middle East and what we are doing here in the USA.
