Description:

Join us for a screening of "The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's Public Relations War in the United States"  Post-screening discussion with Executive Producer,  Sut Jhally, Mary Beth Tinker, and Dave Zirin .

Pro-Israeli organizations like the the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) have done everything in their power to ban the showing of "The Occupation of the American Mind", a documentary about how media propaganda is used to support the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The JCRC and other groups have done this by slandering the film as antisemitic. Here in the DMV, they have gotten schools to shut down showings at Montgomery College in Maryland and by the Arab Student Union (ASU) at Jackson Reed High School in DC. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit against the DC Public Schools on behalf of the ASU to have the movie shown and for the students to be able to distribute Palestine related literature, which the school has consistently censored.

Come watch the documentary for yourself and afterwards join the film’s producer Sut Jhally, Mary Beth Tinker, the victorious plaintiff in the 1969 Tinker v. Des Moines Supreme Court case which ruled that her high school could not punish students for wearing a black armband in protest of the Vietnam war, and members of the ASU at Jackson Reed HS. They will be in conversation with Dave Zirin, sports editor of The Nation Magazine, and host of WPFW's The Collision.
