505 E. Charleston Rd., Palo Alto
|Organizer/Author||World Centric - Aseem Das|
The atrocities witnessed by the world on September 11th were hateful acts of terrorists who chose to view their victims not as people but as symbols of perceived evil. "Brothers and Others" tells the stories of Arabs, Muslims and South Asians jailed without evidence or due process in the wake of the tragedy and asks, by imprisoning thousands of innocent people on the basis of their ethnic or religious affiliation, is the American government perpetuating the cycle of ignorance and hate which claimed so many innocent lives?
The film will be followed by a discussion led by Samina Faheem, founder of American Muslim Voice, an organization that seeks to bridge the gap between Muslim communities and other communities in the U.S. and to uphold civil liberties for all.
