A Cup of Conscience @ Bloc 11 - free film and coffee
07 Feb 2008
Amnesty International and Bloc 11 present "Justice Without Borders" - a new film exploring the global movement seeking accountability for the most grave human rights abuses.
SOMERVILLE, Mass: On Wednesday, February 13 at 7:00PM, Amnesty International Group 133 and Bloc 11 Café in Union Square will pair up for a free human rights documentary screening entitled Justice Without Borders. If the prospect of a stirring film about combating grave injustices around the world isn’t enough to extract you from the house next week, then maybe the complementary Bloc 11 coffee will (we hear the Bloc’s coffee is even better when it’s free).

Justice Without Borders explores the global movement seeking justice and accountability for the most grave human rights abuses. The film follows three stories: the movement to extradite ex-President Alberto Fujimori from Chile to Peru on charges of gross human rights violations and corruption; the groundbreaking work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to address the issue of child soldiers and end impunity for crimes against humanity and war crimes in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo; and Nobel laureate Rigoberta Menchú's decade long quest to bring General Ríos Montt and other former Guatemalan officials to face justice on charges of genocide for their scorched earth policies that killed 200,000 mostly Mayan peasants.

Viewers are invited to stay for a post-film discussion with updates on each of the three featured stories as well as opportunities for direct action to support the growing international justice movement.

Bloc 11 Café, the latest venture from the folks who brought you Diesel Café in Davis Square, was recently named one of the best new restaurants for 2008 by Boston.com
