UPCOMING EVENTS

1. Our next film in the NFPOC film series will be WALL (Mur), written and directed by Simone Bitton.

Please join us on Saturday, October 20 at 7 pm at the Presbyterian Church in Cutchogue.

This documentary, in French, English, Arabic and Hebrew, tells the story of the wall being built by Israel as part of the separation barrier between Israel and Palestine. For more information,

2. We are also in the planning stages of a major event in partnership with Reverend Coverdale of the Riverhead Baptist Church that will span several days around Veterans Day, November 11. Although the details are not yet confirmed, the event is planned to include a display of all the panels that comprise the Honor the Fallen memorial in addition to films, music and an essay contest. Our objective is to bring together young people and their families from all the towns, hamlets and villages of the East End to talk and think about the consequences of war.

3. One of our board members is in discussion with a college in North Carolina about bringing the entire Honor the Fallen Memorial to their campus in January, '08. More as this develops.

Footnote
We urge those of you who missed our screening last Saturday of The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez, to try and find another opportunity to see it not least for the devastating causal connection it makes between poverty, foreign policy and war.
