Recent and Upcoming Just Views Programs
Friday, October 14, 2016 at 7:20 pm: Fighting for Public Schools & Unions
Tonight's outstanding new film, Schoolidarity, provides a history of the issues surrounding the weakening and privatization of urban public schools focusing on Chicago, Madison, and Milwaukee. And it celebrates the activism of teachers, union organizers, students, and parents. The film follows significant struggles with the public education system and workers’ rights including the weeks-long mass occupation of the Wisconsin capitol building and the Chicago teachers’ strike. Filmmaker Andrew Friend and experienced local teachers’ union leaders will be joining us for discussion about public unions, school reform, and more. For more about the film, go to http://www.schoolidarity.com/. The public and all points of view are welcome.
Friday, November 11, 2016 at 7:20 pm: Uncovering Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
On this Veteran’s Day, we will view a progressive film dealing with Israeli and Palestinian needs and rights: “The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relations War in the United States”. For more information on the film, go to http://occupationoftheamericanmind.org/. At this showing, we will study how the film analyzes the history and current situations of the Semitic peoples. Join us for viewing and then critique of the film and discussion of issues related to peace and justice in Israel-Palestine. The public and all points of view are welcome.
