A Film about Rebellion in Darfur

Wed., March 31, 8pm

Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal, have been in jail in Tehran for over seven months now. We hope there will be an end to this situation soon but we are still trying to keep up awareness of the issue and raise money, both for the mothers of the three to travel to Iran if they are allowed to, and for the financial support of the three prisoners themselves when they are released.

To this end we will be screening the film “Songs To Enemies And Deserts”. We will start the evening at 8 p.m. with an update on the hikers’ situation and then begin the film promptly at 8.30. It is only 35 minutes long so please arrive in time. The screening will be followed by a discussion about the current situation in Darfur and all of Sudan, with the independence vote for South Sudan looming next year, and one Darfuri rebel group, the Justice And Equality Movement or JEM, having recently signed a peace agreement with the Sudanese government.

No Reservations Necessary
