“The film has sent shockwaves around the world.” -- Amy Goodman, Democracy Now! AFGHAN MASSACRE: THE CONVOY OF DEATH Were US troops involved in crimes against humanity? Come to a special showing of a film the corporate media won't touch. Thursday June 26, 7:00 p.m. New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, SF “The film has sent shockwaves around the world. It has been broadcast on national television in Britain, Germany, Italy and Australia. It has been screened by the European parliament. It has outraged human rights groups and international human rights lawyers. They are calling for investigation into whether US Special Forces are guilty of war crimes. But most Americans have never heard of the film. That’s because not one corporate media outlet in the US will touch it. It has never before been broadcast in this country.“ – Amy Goodman, Democracy Now! Broadcast for the first time in the US by Democracy Now! on May 23rd, Afghan Massacre documents the slaughter of up to 3,000 Afghan prisoners by Northern Alliance troops under US supervision. Thousands of Afghan prisoners were killed while traveling in sealed containers on their way from Konduz to a prison at Sheberghan. The bodies of the dead and some who survived were then buried in a mass grave at nearby Dasht Leile. US special forces were closely involved and in charge at the time. Were they involved in a war crime? The Pentagon denies the events. The eyewitnesses tell what happened. Join us for a showing of the 50-minute film Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death by Scottish journalist Jamie Doran and Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi. Sponsored by the Network Against Disinformation, the New College Media Studies MA Program, and the Social Justice Committee, Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists. Donations requested.
