The screening will be followed by a moderated discussion lead
by Peter Rugh of the OWS Environmental Solidarity Working Group and
writer for Socialist Worker and Terraspheres. Also in
attendance will be a friend of Daniel McGowan to comment on Daniel’s
case and current condition. The event will be hosted by Bluestockings,
located at 172 Allen Street in the East Village.
The event is free, but please come with a small donation for
Bluestockings. Bluestockings is a radical bookstore, fair trade cafe,
and activist center in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Through
words, art, food, activism, education, and community, they strive to
create a space that welcomes and empowers all people.
The film was provided by POV, PBS’ nonfiction film series that weekly
screens independent, innovative, and provocative films that address
the challenging social issues of our time.
In an effort to reach out to those who share our interests and ideals
and start conversations about how we can work together to build
stronger community ties and a better world, the 4th Street Food Co-op
will be organizing various community events throughout the remainder
of the year. This film screening is the first. Come join us and be
part of the conversation!
