Hi Claude, Hope you are doing well.

 Excellent program on Attica--very important. I will forward announcement to friends in Bay Area.
I am in Oaxaca for the summer, a lot of cultural resistance but political resistance has declined since Oaxaca commune of 2006--26 murdered, Peter

Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Attica
Prison Uprising

Friday, September 9th - 7pm Sharp
518 Valencia Street - San Francisco
Attica - The Restored 1974 Film

Discussion with:
Azadeh Zohrabi - Hastings Race & Poverty Law
Journal
Dennis Cunningham - Original Attica Attorney
Manuel Fontaine - about connecting the dots to
Georgia, Ohio and California prison strikes


Prison unrest in the United States hit a boiling point on September 9,
1971, when inmates at Attica State Prison after months of protesting
inhumane living conditions rebelled, seizing part of the prison and
taking 35 hostages. The uprising was met with a military attack and the
murder of 43 people after NY State troopers assaulted the prisoners.
Attica - released 3 years later - is an investigation of the rebellion
and its aftermath, piecing together documentary footage of the occupation
and ensuing assault. Especially significant today as prisoners from
Georgia, Ohio, California and other states fight for their human rights
in the face of increased imprisonment and the brutality and torture of
long-term solitary confinement.
