Nowruz (Persian New Year) celebrates spring and renewal across a number of cultures, from Iran and Kurdistan to Afghanistan and Los Angeles.  This event will link the spirit of Nowruz to the worldwide quest for a renewal of society that would overcome and replace capitalism and other forms of oppression.  Doing so will require hard work, hard thinking, and a celebratory, global humanist spirit.  That is what we will be evoking at this event.

JUST DO IT
Emily James, UK 2011 [12A], 88 mins

Emily James spent a year within the environmental movement documenting the clandestine activities of the major players. In this feature documentary, she presents an insider’s account of the new global movement, an independent group funded by volunteers; inspiring, anarchic individuals with inventive strategies challenge the multi-nationals, frustrate the police and create confusion. This film shows what one group of committed individuals can achieve.

NOT IN OUR NAME
Gabrielle Tierney, Ireland/UK 2009 [12A], 30 mins

Nine men were totally acquitted of their £350,000 criminal damage to the International Arms manufacturer in Derry in 2006. The decision became a legal benchmark; an act of deliberate civil disobedience recognised as a weapon in the fight for peace. This film documents the victory and their solidarity with the people in the Lebanese town of Qana; knowledge of the production of those weapons and their use in the Israeli massacre became an impetus for the men to act.

Discussion led by Emily James, Gabrielle Tierney and Anne-Marie O’Reilly, Outreach Co-ordinator, Campaign Against Arms Trade
