      Northeast Neighbors for Peace & Justice presents The "Take Back Democracy
      Film Festival" Five Fridays in October at Flor y Canto

      This week's screening -- October 1 "What America Needs: From Sea to Shining
      Sea" (2002, 93 minutes) Directed and Produced by Mark Wojahn Traveling by
      train from N.Y.C. to Los Angeles post 9/11, a documentary filmmaker asks
      more than 500 people from different communities across America "What Do You
      Think America Needs?" The sincerity and thoughtfulness with which people
      responded makes this film a thought-provoking look at who Americans are and
      what they instinctively know. Collectively, their answers relate an
      unexpected story of hope. This film just premiered last week in Los Angeles
      at the silverlake Film Festival.

      Northeast Neighbors for Peace and Justice Video/Potlucks almost every

      RNC Reportback Wednesday, October 6th at 7:30 pm

      This year the Republican National Convention (RNC) saw the largest protests
      in the history of U.S. political conventions. Creative and colorful marches,
      demonstrations, direct actions, civil disobedience, educational events,
      celebrations and much more were held all week to show the Republicans how
      unwelcome they were. At the same time the level of, police harassment,
      violent police tactics, police surveillance of activists and psychological
      warfare tactics were used extensively by one of the largest gatherings of
      law enforcement officials in the history of New York.

      Join local activists who traveled to New York in August to protest at The
      RNC. We will be discussing the details of what happened that historic week
      in New York City, as well as beginning a discussion of where do we go from
      here. More info here: http://www.florycanto.org/rnc.htm
