Monday,  October 2, 5:00 - 6:00 pm, BNP Vigil: "Oppose the Escalation of the Afghanistan War",  at the  Four Corners, intersection of Kenwood and Delaware Aves. in DelmarJoin us in opposing Trump's war agenda.  October 6, 2017 marks the 16th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan – the longest foreign war in U.S. history. U.S. Antiwar Leaders Call for Actions to Oppose the Escalation of the Afghanistan War During the Week of the 16th Anniversary of the Invasion.  The Afghan war, was originally railed against by Donald Trump when he was running for president. He claimed to be against U.S. troop involvement in Afghanistan. Now he is moving forward with a “secret” plan of escalation that will also include Pakistan.  He says the secrecy is to keep the “enemy” from knowing his plans, but it also keeps the U.S. people from knowing what he is doing in our name and from judging the human costs for the people of Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United States. Stay for a few minutes or an hour. Let's stand together for peace and justice.   518-466-1192 for further information. Join us!

   Film: "Charlie Wilson's War" (2007,102 minutes, Rated R),  stars Julia Roberts, Seymour Hoffman, and Tom Hanks. Who armed the Taliban? This film is based on a true story. Veteran 60 Minutes producer George Crile explains how one Congressman was able to provide the CIA with hundreds of millions of dollars to fund the Afghan program, dwarfing the price tag for arming the Nicaraguan Contras that occurred at virtually the same time.    Information:  466-1192

Film: "the bomb"
Saturday, October 14, 7:30 pm
First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany
405 Washington Avenue (across the street from the downtown SUNY campus) 

The Solidarity Committee of the Capital District opens its 2017-2018 film series with the screening of "the bomb" (2016, 61 minutes).   This experimental meditation on the destructive power of nuclear weapons provides a powerful examination of their role in the world’s history and culture, as well as lessons about violence and war that some people choose to ignore.  Forgoing the usual talking head interviews or explanatory narration, “The Bomb” sweeps forward by relying on striking visual film footage, plus electronic minimalist music by The Acid. Co-sponsored by Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, the Social Justice Center, and Upper Hudson Peace Action, the film screening will take place in Channing Hall of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany, located at 405 Washington Avenue (across the street from the downtown SUNY campus).  Admission is free, and free refreshments will be provided.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Additional films in the 2017-2018 series will be shown on November 18, February 17, and April 21, at the same time and place.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
