Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: “Unconstitutional” Plus a Talk by Kevin Danaher

The USA Patriot Act was passed by Congress immediately following 9/11.

Unconstitutional: The War On Our Civil Liberties (68 minutes), another excellent film by Robert Greenwald, is an inside look at this controversial bill through the eyes of legal analysts and constitutional experts as they examine the dangers the Patriot Act poses to our civil liberties, individual freedoms, and our U.S. Constitution.

The film follows the passage of the controversial legislation through Congress, the effect it has on all Americans, especially Arabs and Muslims in the U.S., and it addresses the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.  The film also reveals the effects of the Patriot Act on both Americans and immigrants, such as Aquil Abdullah, a 2004 U.S. Olympic rower who happens to be Catholic, who turned up on no-fly lists simply because of his name; Sam Hamoui, a storekeeper, and his family, living in Seattle, who were detained by federal agents; A.J. Brown, a North Carolina college student visited by agents investigating her alleged “un-American” activities; and librarians and store owners who were pressured to release their customer records, all in the name of “Homeland Security.” [Read more…]

Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: Docudrama “Operation Terror” January 2013


Documentaries are not the only medium through which people have their worldviews successfully challenged. Some of us are more affected by storytelling. Good fiction, music and lyrics, poetry, and fairy tales can often pierce the depths of the psyche where facts and rational analysis fail.

For this reason, this month we are pleased to air the docudrama Operation Terror, written and produced by filmmaker Art Olivier,  a former mayor of Bellflower, CA.  This film tells a story, and does it well considering its low budget and that it was written and produced by a first-time filmmaker.

But don’t hold your breath for this film to reach the theaters. Although it is well-produced, each time Olivier’s staff revealed its content, the theaters suddenly lost interest. [Read more…]
