Film Screening: The Occupation of the American Mind

February 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on February 26th for a screening of The Media Education Foundation’s film The Occupation of the American Mind. This event is free, and drinks & light refreshments will be served.

Why does the US support a racial Apartheid system in Israel where its Arab minority has only second-class citizenship and millions of Palestinians have no rights at all?

Why do we give Israel more than $4 billion in aid every year to maintain its violent military rule over occupied Palestine and build hundreds of illegal settlements there  –  while we have huge unmet needs at home?

Why do we send US police and security personnel for training in segregated Israel, paid for by tax-exempt Israel Lobby organizations?

This film explains the pervasive propaganda system underlying these choices.

This event is sponsored by Dorchester People for Peace. Their mission is to oppose US militarism; to build a multi-racial peace movement throughout the neighborhoods of Dorchester; and to work against the war at home, including violence, budget cuts, racism and political repression.
