Leaked documents pertaining to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations which include the proceedings and discussions from behind closed door meetings at the highest levels caused an uproar across the Arab world. These documents known as the Palestine Papers were not nearly as publicized in the western media as Wikileaks. Released by Al Jazeera between January 23 and 26, 2011, there are nearly 1,700 files, thousands of pages of diplomatic correspondence detailing the inner workings of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The panelists (Khaled Elgindy, Noura Erakat & Mark Perry) discuss the contents of these leaks, the coverage by Al Jazeera and the "Guardian," and what effect they may have on the Palestinian Authority and the future of negotiations. This video will be followed by discussion. Sponsored by: Middle East Peace Now (MEPN). WAMM is a member of MEPN. --------3 of 8-------- From: Michelle Gross <mgresist [at] visi.com> Subject: CUAPB 4.16 1:30pm Meetings: Every Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Walker Church, 3104 16th Avenue South http://www.CUAPB.org Communities United Against Police Brutality 3100 16th Avenue S Minneapolis, MN 55407 Hotline 612-874-STOP (7867) --------4 of 8-------- From: Vanka485 [at] aol.com Subject: Northtown vigil 4.16 2pm Peace vigil at Northtown (Old Hwy 10 & University Av), every Saturday 2-3pm --------5 of 8-------- From: Larry Johnson <larryjvfp [at] gmail.com> Subject: War/earth day 4.16 4pm DEPLETED GERANIUMS and other stories reflecting environmental devastation from war (or EARTH DAY AT MAYDAY) April 16, 4 p.m. at Mayday Books, 301 Cedar So. in Mpls. It's Earth Day at Mayday Deep stories from experience, as well as those from books like THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO, on Mayday's shelves. Bert Berlowe: Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers; Author/Publisher of THE COMPASSIONATE REBEL Dave Culver: Veterans for Peace; Editor of EVERGREEN DIGEST Larry Johnson: Environmental Storyteller/"Musician" and President of Veterans for Peace Chante Wolf: Gulf War Veteran for Peace; Author/Speaker/Artist Bert, Dave, Larry, and Chante will tell their stories for about an hour, and then leave some room for the stories that emerge from others in the room. Parking will be hard, as Midwest Mountaineering's enormous Spring Expo will be in process. However, with a little planning, light rail, or the 2, 7, or 22 busses would allow you to park in a free zone not too far away and get out right by Mayday. Done right, you could get there and back on one fare of $1.75 regular or $.75 for 65 or over. While the legislature moves on devastating public transit cuts because too many won't consider raising taxes on those most able to profit from war, you could get to Mayday by experientially immersing yourself in the GREEN ZONE statistic that the U.S. military spends enough on oil each year to fund all major U.S. transit systems. I'd be glad to answer any questions, or personally help you plan your transit trip to DEPLETED GERANIUMS. Larry Johnson, 612-747-3904 or larryjvfp [at] gmail.com (note, new email address) --------6 of 8-------- From: Greg Klave <gregklave [at] msn.com> Subject: Cuba/film 4.16 7pm Opening Weekend of the Mpls/St Paul International Film Festival The Minnesota Cuba Committee, Victor's 1959 Café and The Film Society of Minneapolis/St Paul present AFINIDADES (Relationships) Cuban Director, writer, actor Vladimir Cruz will be present at the showings for Q & A and joining others in listening and dancing to the band, Rumba Eterna, playing popular Cuban songs after the Saturday showing under the big tent on the historic waterfront of Minneapolis. An event not to be missed! Vladimir Cruz and Jorge Perugorría, who previously starred in the globally popular 1994 film Strawberry and Chocolate and the 2001 film The Waiting List, team up again as both the stars and directing duo behind this sultry psychological drama. Two couples separated by more than just years, find refuge in sex as an affirmation of life and self in order to deal with the complexities and problems of the modern world. Apr 16, 2011 -6:45pm Apr 17, 2011 -7:00pm St. Anthony Main Theatre 115 SE Main Street . Minneapolis, MN 55414 Free parking behind theater in ramp on 2nd St SE and 2nd Ave SE. --------7 of 8-------- All lesser-evil liberals crawl and whine "I'd rather switch than fight!" --------8 of 8-------- Linguistic Convention "Lesser-evil liberal" takes 7 syllables, way more than they are worth. "Lessevlib" is 3, but it's still too many, and it's hard to say. "Leelib" is only 2, is easy to say, and is appropriately dismissive. (In face-to-face conversation, any rude gesture is a widely understood substitute, and takes 0 syllables. Thus, the above haiku could become: All [rude gesture] crawl and whine "I'd rather switch than fight!" - a 10-syllable neo-haiku for all those people too busy to read 17. And besides, it's really fun to perform.) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- - David Shove shove001 [at] tc.umn.edu rhymes with clove Progressive Calendar over 2225 subscribers as of 12.19.02 please send all messages in plain text no attachments vote third party for president for congress for governor now and forever Socialism YES Capitalism NO Impeach Obama To GO DIRECTLY to an item, eg --------8 of x-------- do a find on --8 Research almost any topic raised here at: CounterPunch http://counterpunch.org Dissident Voice http://dissidentvoice.org Common Dreams http://commondreams.org Once you're there, do a search on your topic, eg obama drones
