September 18+ Drive Out the Bush Regime!

Monday, September 18

7 PM – The Guantanamo Guide Book. An extraordinary documentary about the power and cruelty of our officially sanctioned interrogation methods.
This extraordinary film recruited 7 young, physically-fit British men - 3 of them Muslims - to "experience" 48 hours in Guantanamo Bay. Packed in cages, dressed in orange jump suits, and subjected to officially sanctioned techniques including enforced stress positions, "sleep adjustment," and sensory deprivation, some volunteers claim they would have admitted to anything to please their interrogators.
PANEL DISCUSSION with Karen J. Greenberg, Co-Editor of "The Torture Papers" and Executive Director of the Center on Law and Security at NYU School of Law; Tara McKelvey, senior editor, The American Prospect, research fellow, NYU Law School's Center on Law and Security, contributing editor, Marie Claire; Claudia Milne, Executive Producer of The Guantanamo Guidebook; Michael Ratner, President of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
Shinbone Alley, 45 Bleeker Street


8:30AM - Join World Can't Wait as we take part in UFPJ's sidewalk march to the United Nations! From the WCW NY website:
WHERE: 39th St and 7th Ave (by the giant button & needle sculpture).


We dare to get out this very bold message broadly throughout the crowd and to the world. Because it is crucial our dissent be heard, just as Bush is speaking at the UN, but it will not be enough if he and his cronies are allowed to stay in power and commit more crimes! Out of Iraq! No war on Iran! Bush Must GO! We will also get together for a MeetUp Tues night at Think Coffee (at Mercer & West 3rd) at 8PM for anyone who wants to volunteer with the chapter.

7 PM – We Feed The World - "Given the current state of agriculture in the world, it could feed 12 billion people with no problem. Or to put it another way: any child who dies of starvation today is in fact murdered."Jean Ziegler, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food (Switzerland). In WE FEED THE WORLD, Austrian filmmaker Erwin Wagenhofer traces the origins of the food we eat. His journey takes him to France, Spain, Romania, Switzerland, Brazil and back to Austria. WE FEED THE WORLD is a film about food and globalization, fishermen and farmers, truck drivers and corporate executives - a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us. Shinbone Alley, 45 Bleeker Street
