Palestine, the Legitimacy of Hope, a Narrative by Richard Falk

A renowned international law scholar who recently completed a six-year term as Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Occupied Palestine, Richard Falk will discuss his new book Palestine, the Legitimacy of Hope and be interviewed by Peter B.Collins. This book powerfully illuminates the transformation of the Palestinians’ struggle over recent years into a struggle for legitimacy, similar to that pursued by the anti-colonial movements of the twentieth century. Falk has built this compelling narrative around a series of essays he wrote between 2010 and early 2014 for his personal blog.

Immigration: Focus on Marin

Tom Wilson, Executive Director of the Canal Alliance, will discuss issues surrounding the May and June increase of women and children from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras crossing into the US, and explain what actions are being taken in Marin to provide legally mandated services and sanctuary to the undocumented.

In September of this year the number of immigrants crossing the US/Mexico border fell below 2013 totals. Is this due to humanitarian efforts of the countries involved or are there far more sinister causes at work?

“An Update on Chevron, Our Neighbor”, a talk by Paul Paz y Miño

Beautiful little girl whose eyes are going blind from chemical poisoning (Courtesy Steven Donziger)

In 2011 Chevron, was found liable for dumping 18 billion gallons of toxic foundation waters in Ecuador. Chevron, has refused to pay the $9.5 billion judgment and promises to fight “until hell freezes over.” The oil giant has sued the Ecuadorian communities, their lawyers and supports under the US RICO Act – labeling them “global extortionists” to prevent them from collecting on this judgment.

Amazon Watch, named as a “co-conspirator” by Chevron, is organizing communities to respond. Paul Paz y Miño will give an update on these events, including visuals, and tell people how they can join the effort to bring Chevron, to justice by joining a world day of action later in May.

Lynne Stewart – A Celebration of Life & Struggle

Please join MPJC in welcoming home Lynne Stewart

Lynne Stewart is a radical human rights and criminal defense attorney who has devoted her life to the oppressed. She was falsely convicted of conspiracy to aid and abet terrorism because she issued a press release on behalf of her famous client, Omar Abdel-Rahman an anti-Mubarak Egyptian cleric. This was an obvious attempt by the U.S. government to silence dissent, curtail vigorous defense lawyers and install fear in those who would fight against the U.S. government. She was arrested in April 2002 and convicted after an outrageously biased trial. She initially received a 28-month sentence in October 2006 but was free on bail until 2009 while she and the government appealed. In late 2009 Lynne was re-sentenced to 10 years in federal prison and sent to the Carswell Federal Medical Center in Ft. Worth, Texas. While there, her breast cancer progressed to Stage IV, leading to a massive campaign for her compassionate release from federal custody, as required by federal law for those with terminal illness. Finally, after over a year of tremendous effort involving thousands, Lynne was released this past New Year’s Eve and is living with her family in New York City. Her husband Ralph Poynter is joining her on the trip to the Bay Area.

Dr. Victor Rios

Uncovering GRIT through Restorative Justice: The School to Prison Pipeline and the Power of Transformation

Dr. Victor Rios, Ph.D., is an award winning college professor, speaker and author of the favourably peer-reviewed works: Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys and Street Life: Poverty, Gangs and a Ph.D. His personal story of transformation from a drop out gang member on the streets of Oakland to a college professor at University of California, Santa Barbara is inspirational and compelling. Combined with evidence from more than a decade of research, Dr. Rios’ work highlights the power of positive reinforcement in the lives of marginalized youth and young adults. An active and involved community member and mentor, Dr. Rios continues to transform the lives of the people with whom he studies and works.

His story is inspirational and insightful about how the investment in punitive, repressive systems makes it difficult for youth who are at risk to receive the support they need to redirect their energies and abilities. Dr. Rios Provides captivating, evidence-based professional development to educators about the power of positive quality of interactions in the lives of young people. He speaks to middle, high school and college students about overcoming adversity, leadership and the power of a higher education.

Gaza Writes Back

Come Hear the Stories from Young Writers Living under Occupation

There is a profound imbalance against the Palestinian People in the mainstream U.S. media. In the hope of showing the truth about the occupation, the First Presbyterian Church of San Anselmo is proud to host an evening with four young writers on U.S. national tour from the book “Gaza Writes Back”, edited by Refaat Alareer. It is a compelling collection of short stories from 15 young writers in Gaza, members of a generation that have suffered immensely under Israel’s siege and and blockade. Their experiences, especially during and following Israel’s 2008-2009 offensive known as “Operation Cast Lead”, have fundamentally impacted their lives. Their stories are acts of resistance and defiance, proclaiming the endurance of Palestinians and the continuing resilience and creativity of their culture in the face of ongoing obstacles, indignities and attempts to silence them. Through their writing these authors have brought to life the real issues that the people of Gaza face. Introduction by Annie Robbins, editor-at-large for Mondoweiss.

MPJC Hosts Gareth Porter

Truthout Contributor and 2012 recipient of the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, Gareth Porter, will discuss his new book “Manufactured Crisis, the Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare” with Peter B.Collins. A veteran investigative journalist, Gareth Porter has been following the facts and accusations regarding Iran’s nuclear research for over six years. His research serves as a disturbing indictment of US and Israeli policies. There has never been conclusive evidence that Iran’s Islamic leaders want to have or use nuclear weapons, therefore talk of an “Iranian nuclear threat” is premature. This is an important event you won’t want to miss.
