“Give Us the Names” Screening

[NYCLAW endorses the following event]

“Give Us the Names” 28 min.

The video documents the demonstrations that took place at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center from January to October 2002.

The protests broke the silence of the government’s secret detentions of hundreds of Arab and Muslim immigrants, in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001.

There will be a discussion after the video showing. This event is FREE. It is sponsored by the Brooklyn/Manhattan chapter of the War Resisters League. For more information, contact <mailto:ruthbenn@juno.com>
