The Topanga Peace Alliance 160th Consecutive First Friday Film Night
\"Special! Short Films on Immigration and Deportation\"
Friday, August 3rd, at the Topanga Library
Snack Pot Luck at 7:15, Movie 7:30.
For August the Topanga Peace Alliance will present a special collection of short videos regarding the refugee crisis across Central America and the chaotic reactions by the United States. We will show first-hand accounts of the emotional, psychological and physical damage that can be done when children are imprisoned - even with their families. We will ride with children and families moving from Central America, across Mexico to the U.S. border. We will see how the U.S. government locks up roughly 440,000 immigrants in over 200 immigrant prisons where companies like the CCA and Geo Group have made over billion in profits, largely from immigrant detention. In the short films selected for this presentation we will present teachers, health workers, and others talking about what the crisis resulting from the atrocities committed on this most vulnerable population. Finally we will view an important short film about how you can safely make a difference when you see racist attacks.
After the films we will have a discussion regarding what is being done locally and actions to support OCCUPYICELA.
Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice. Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice.
