Progressive Democrats of America Central NM Chapter Meeting
May 2, 2018
First Unitarian Church
3701 Carlisle Blvd. NE Albuquerque
5:30 PM MINGLE, 6:00 PM PROGRAM
We will be showing the film Radiance of Resistance, the heartbreaking story of nonviolent persistence and resistance by the Palestinian people against the theft and occupation of their lands. This film features the courageous actions of two Palestinian girls, one of whom is now in an Israeli prison. A panel discussion follows the showing.
This past week was the beginning of the action “No Way to Treat a Child” which focuses on Rep. Betty McCollum’s HD 4391. This bill would ensure that US tax dollars do not fund Israeli detention of Palestinian children. A group of activists met with Rep. Ben Ray Luján on May 2 to ask him to co-sponsor this bill. He said he would get back to us. We have received no word as of today.
