The film takes a raw look at civilian casualties, women’s rights and other issues that put into question official claims that the war is making our shores safer. Mr. Greenwald has used interviews with academics, Afghans, and former CIA operatives to raise questions about civilian casualties, women’s rights, the cost of war and whether it has made the United States safer. The film will be followed by a discussion on the issues. Film website:

Interfaith Candlelight Vigil for Immigration Reform

During Immigrant Rights week, people are shining the light of faith from coast to coast. In the spirit of the holidays, we are asked to welcome the stranger and reach out to those less fortunate, and those who are the objects of fear-filled actions. Interfaith Worker Justice will be joining with the national New Sanctuary Movement and other faith-based organizations and congregations in support of just and humane immigration reform. This vigil is to share the message that people of all backgrounds are standing on the side of love to keep immigrant families together and to end the raids and deportations.
For more information visit

When: Saturday, December 19, 2009, 4:00 pm
Where: Copley Square Boston in the "park" area along Dartmouth Street opposite the Boston Public Library.
