Calling All Artists and Craftsters: The Jack Pine Community Center is having a "Craftsale for the Revolution," and we need artists! We are looking for art of all kinds (photography, paintings and other media, homemade gifts and crafts, etc.) The date will be either Saturday December 2nd or 9th, from 10am to 5pm. The actual will date should be announced within the next week. Artists wanting to participate must be willing to pay JPCC a ommission, which is not yet decided upon. Also, people willing to do skillshares, that would preferably coincide with the holiday season (such as learning how to make gifts and crafts to give, instead of buying them), are also wanted. This will be a great way for people to support the JPCC and local artists during the holiday season, rather than the rich corporations!! If artists have questions, or would like to participate, they can reply to this or contact Callie at ducttape88 [at] aol.com Coming up at the Jack Pine... WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25 at 8pm Oaxaca Solidarity Planning Meeting Here's a link to some info about what's going on right now in Oaxaca, Mexico http://www.infoshop.org/inews/article.php?story=2006101510281453&query=oaxaca TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7 at 7:30pm Refuseniks Screening - Twin Cities Premiere! Using archival footage, still photos and interviews filmed in Israel, REFUSENIKS is a moving portrait of men and women who are willing to risk imprisonment in defense of their stands against the occupation by refusing to serve. They differ in their spiritual and political beliefs, some are ardent Zionists, and some question and challenge the concept of Zionism, but all of them have come to believe that taking a stand is crucial to their own humanity and to the future of their country. Panel discussion following the film: Peter Rachleff is a labor historian and activist who has taught at Macalester College since 1982. Recently he has branched into historical dramaturgy and he has worked on several projects with playwright Naomi Wallace, the sister of "Refuseniks" filmmaker Sonja DeVries. This collaboration has included working on the script of "21 Positions," a play set in Palestine, commissioned but then rejected by the Guthrie Theatre. Ismail Khalidi was born in Beirut, Lebanon to Palestinian parents and raised in Chicago. He is an actor, writer, and activist and made his playwriting debut in September 2005 at Pangea World Theater with Truth Serum Blues. Khalidi has performed in several theatrical productions and has read his poetry around the Twin Cities. He recently received The Playwrights' Center's Many Voices residency award as well as the SASE/Jerome Emerging Writers grant. Patrick Wright grew up in Wisconsin and registered in the Army in 2003, straight out of high school. He was stationed at Ft. Irwin, CA, where the main mission was to train troops in desert warfare before they were deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq. It was there he decided that violence of any kind was morally wrong and that he could no longer participate. After struggling for over a year to get conscientious objector status, he was finally granted a general discharge in May 2006. He now works with Veterans for Peace. This is the first time he is speaking publicly about his experiences. "Powerful, moving, inspiring. These are genuine heroes. The history, the statistics are sobering to any viewer. This film will contribute to solidarity between U.S. and Israeli soldiers of conscience." --Howard Zinn, historian, author, and social activist Contact mk [at] thejackpine.org for more details.

Increasingly, what I wanted was to be a burning boat in the middle of the water, visible to both shores yet indecipherable in my fury."
