Joseph Wilson, journalists to discuss ‘Truth, War and the CIA' at Fresno State's Tatarian Symposium

Joseph Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador to Iraq and husband of ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame, will be the keynote speaker for the 4th annual Roger Tatarian Journalism Symposium, "Truth, War & the CIA," at California State University, Fresno.

Wilson and Plame are at the center of a controversy about classified information leaked to media by the Bush administration that identified Plame as a CIA agent. Wilson contends exposing his wife's status was retaliation for criticism of the Bush administration's reasoning leading up to the war in Iraq.

In 2004, Wilson published "The Politics of Truth: Inside the Lies that Led to War and Betrayed my Wife's CIA Identity." It is an autobiographical account of his more than two decades of foreign service and why he went public with criticisms of the administration. The couple filed suit alleging Vice President Cheney and several top White House officials ruined their reputations.

"We're fortunate to have Ambassador Wilson come here to share his side of the controversy. It should be a lively morning," said Tommy Miller, the Tatarian Endowed Chair at Fresno State and coordinator of the symposium.

The three-hour event, which is free and open to public as well as the campus community, begins at 9 a.m. in the Satellite Student Union (near Maple and San Ramon avenues). It is presented by the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism and the Roger Tatarian Endowment for Journalism, established to the late Fresno State journalism professor and former editor-in-chief of United Press International.

The 2006 symposium will include a panel discussion with two veteran reporters – Warren Strobel and Jonathan Landay from the McClatchy Company's Washington news bureau – who will discuss the challenges of investigative reporting during wartime. Strobel and Landay both have covered foreign affairs for at least 15 years and teamed last year to write "How the Bush Administration Went to War in Iraq," which won a National Headliners Award.

Dr. Gary Rice, a professor in Fresno State's Department of Mass Communication and Journalism, will moderate the discussion.

Free parking will be available in Lots N, O and P. (See map and other event updates at www.FresnoStateNews.com).

For more information, contact the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism at 559.278.2087.

Talk of the Town: "Voting Systems, Problems and Solutions" by Jim Soper at the Tulare County Office of Education, 2637 Burrell in Visalia.

Jim Soper is a software engineer, but he feels like one of those civil engineers warning about the levees of New Orleans. Mr. Soper is concerned that, not only will the levees of democracy break, they are already breaking, due to election fraud. Democracy at stake is too crucial an issue to ignore. Fair and accurate elections are critical to our government. When our elections are at risk, our liberty and freedom is at risk. This lecture will focus on Black box voting, voter disenfranchisement, partisan voting machine companies, hackable voting systems, and more. For more information, call 559.781.6296 or 559.786.2109.

2 films celebrating Armenian-American month: The Genocide in Me & California Armenians: The First Generation will be shown in Instructional Technology Bldg. 101 at Fresno State, entrance off Barstow near Cedar.

Araz Artinian. 2005. 53 min. In English.

Artinian, torn between her father's passionate commitment to the Armenians of the Diaspora and her own personal needs, confronts the reality of living in a multicultural melting pot, and asks herself the universal question "Where do I belong?" The documentary weaves together 8mm film footage shot by the filmmaker's grandfather from the 1940's to the 1980's in Egypt and in Canada, with photographic archives of the Genocide, the filmmaker's present-day video journals, and a deeply honest narration. Through interviews with the last survivors of this Genocide in the USA and through a risky trip to Turkey, Artinian goes back to the origin of her father's obsession, an obsession born of the Turkish denial and the fear of losing the Armenian culture. Best International Feature - Staten Island Film Festival 2006. 2) California Armenians: The First Generation J. Michael Hagopian. USA. 1982. 30 min. In English. California Armenians is a story of the original Armenians who emigrated from Marsovan, Turkey to Fresno, California. They established themselves in a vast, lush valley and made Fresno a center of Armenian life and culture. Post-screening discussion led by Dr. Matthew Jendian (Assistant Professor, Sociology).

This film is sponsored by the Cineculture Club at CSUF. Cineculture seeks to promote cultural awareness and discuss issues related to diversity through film. For more information:

The Reedley Peace Center presents the documentary: Why We Fight. This film describes the rise and maintenance of the United States military-industrial complex, while concentrating on wars led by the United States of the last fifty years and in particular on the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Light potluck at 6:30. Program begins at 7 pm. This event is sponsored by the Reedley Peace Center and will be held at the Fellowship Hall of First Mennonite Church, on 'L' street between 12th and 13th streets in Reedley. Admission is free. Contact Don Friesen by email at dfriesen0@gmail.com

Cindy Sheehan Comes to Fresno
If you haven’t read a newspaper or listened to the news on radio or TV for more than a year, then you’ve probably never heard of Cindy Sheehan, a California mother whose son Casey was killed in action in Sadr City, Baghdad, on April 4th 2004. But the rest of you know her as the woman who camped out in front of George Bush’s home in Crawford, Texas in August of 2005, insisting that he meet with her to explain what "noble cause" her son died for.

That single act galvanized hundreds of people, including veterans and many others with loved ones in the military, to join her at "Camp Casey" to demand that the Commander-in-Chief answer to the people he’s paid to serve. Millions around the country and internationally followed daily reports of the protest going on in Bush’s front yard, and she didn’t stop there. In the course of her protest, Sheehan founded Gold Star Families for Peace, an organization of Americans who have had loved ones killed in wars that in recent years have been for increasingly questionable objectives.

Cindy has since authored or co-authored several books, including "Dear President Bush," "Not One More Mother’s Child," "10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military," and her latest, scheduled for release on September 19th, "Peace Mom, A Mother’s Journey through Heartache to Activism." She exemplifies the principle that one should never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world, because it’s the only thing that ever has.

As part of her untiring effort to insure that her son’s death was not in vain, Cindy has been touring the US and abroad telling her story and urging everyone she talks with to take their citizenship seriously and speak out against this illegal war and those who are profiting from it.

She is coming to Fresno on October 25th, 2006 to speak at Fresno State’s Satellite Union, sponsored by several local organizations and individuals including Fresno Center For Non-Violence, Peace Fresno, WILPF, Central Valley Counter-Recruitment Coalition, Fresno Free College Foundation/KFCF (88.1fm), KFPT (790 am), Patience Milrod, Steven Haze, candidate for the 21st Congressional District, and more to be announced. The Fresno State event is free and will begin at 7 p.m.

There will also be a reception where those wishing to make a contribution of $25 or more to Gold Star Families for Peace can "meet and greet" Cindy and purchase a signed copy of her latest book. For more information, or for tickets to the reception (the details of which will be confirmed soon), please call the Fresno Center for Non-Violence at (559) 237-3223.

The Camden 28 will be shown in Instructional Technology Bldg. 101 at Fresno State, entrance off Barstow near Cedar.

The Camden 28

Anthony Giacchino, USA, 2006, 82min. In English. No Rating.

***Selection from the Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival

How far would you go to stop a war? On August 22, 1971, twenty-eight men and women in Camden, New Jersey, carried out a powerful act of civil disobedience against United States involvement in the Vietnam War. The group was part of a nonviolent antiwar movement popularly known as the "Catholic Left." One of the most dramatic tactics utilized by this movement was breaking into draft board offices to remove and destroy government records that identified young men available for military service. The activists claimed that their actions were meant to show their belief that killing—even in war—was morally indefensible. And by conducting their raids mostly in inner cities, they hoped to call attention to war's damaging effect on some of America's most vulnerable populations. The documentary tells of the activists' covert preparations, government intrigue, a government raid and arrest of the protesters, and an ensuing legal battle which the late Supreme Court Justice William Brennan called "one of the great trials of the twentieth century." Thirty-five years later, key participants openly discuss their motives, their fears, and the tremendous personal costs of their actions. It is a story of resistance, friendship, and betrayal played out against the backdrop of one of the most turbulent periods in recent American history. Winner of both the Jury Prize and Audience Award for Best Documentary, Philadelphia Film Festival 2006. Post-screening discussant: Dr. Charles Arokiasamy, Dept.Chair - Counseling, Special Ed. & Rehabilitation.

Two films: Maximum Security University (dir. Tom Quinn) and Inside Corcoran: Where Hell Begins (by the California Correctional Peace Officers Association) will be shown in Instructional Technology Bldg. 101 at Fresno State, entrance off Barstow near Cedar.

1) Maximum Security University (dir. Tom Quinn) and

2) Inside Corcoran: Where Hell Begins (by the California Correctional Peace Officers Association)

Maximum Security University (1997, 45 minutes), based on security yard videos and internal documents never before seen outside Corcoran Prison, analyzes this innovative Super-Max prison-within-a-prison and the departmental policy of mixing rival inmates on small SHU yards and shooting them when they fought. The shooting deaths of four inmates are shown and examined in detail. The video won a Best Documentary Award from the National Council on Crime and Delinquency.

Corcoran: Where Hell Begins (1999, 30 minutes), was prepared by media consultants working for the state's prison guards union, the California Correctional Peace Officers Union (CCPOA). The documentary became controversial because the union prepared it for the purpose of "educating the jury pool" in the run-up the federal trial in Fresno of eight SHU guards for homicide and other abuses. The 8 were eventually acquitted of all charges. The production values of the CCPOA documentary are much greater than Maximum Security University, in part because far more money went into its creation.

So different is the presentation of images, facts, and analysis in these two videos that without foreknowledge one would never believe they treat the same prison. The purpose in showing the videos together is to allow exploration, in the discussion following the presentations, of this sharply contrasted documentary-rhetoric, and the politics and motives of the producers of the two documentaries. Post-screening discussion by Director Tom Quinn.

Progressive Thursday presents: Ecoparque and Gone Tomorrow, the Hidden Life of Garbage

This will be our first double feature Progressive Thursday presentaion. Both are short videos. Ecoparque, the film (33 minutes), explores the creation and impact of Ecoparque, the place - a park flourishing on a formerly barren urban hillside thanks to an innovative system that uses residents' wastewater not only to transform one canyon, but to make a scientific and economic case for neighborhood-scale, nature-mimicking facilities being preferable over centralized conveyance and chemical treatment for many canyon communities. Gone Tomorrow, the Hidden Life of Garbage (20 minutes) is based on the book of the same title and is about recycling and waste in the United States. This documentary exposes the often magical (but false) feeling we get from 'helping the earth' by 'recycling'. It points out the real problems, over production and industrial pollution and also explains corporate greenwashing and our economic systme of 'built-in obsolescence'. These videos will be presented at Round Table Pizza, 5763 N. First St., Fresno. Buy your favorite entree and join us for dinner; doors open at 6:30 PM, video begins at 7:00 PM. A discussion will follow after the film. Progressive Thursday is hosted by the GROW working group of the Fresno County Green Party and is a free, wheelchair accessible event open to anyone interested in discussing topics of interest to the progressive community.

Celebrating International Education Week!

Kordavision will screen in the Peters Educational Center, located on the west side of the Save Mart Center, 2640 E. Shaw Ave, Fresno. Admission is FREE and parking is FREE in all student (green) lots.

Hector Cruz Sandoval. 2005. Cuba. Spanish and English. 90 min. No Rating.

***Funded by Associated Students.

KordaVision is a graphic documentary featuring the life and work of renowned Cuban photographer Alberto Diaz "Korda." Korda's photo of Ernesto "Che" Guevara wearing a military beret is one of the most famous and widely distributed photographs of the 20th century. Reflecting the Cuban soul of the 1950s and 1960s - the days of fashion, rum and the Revolution - the film begins by taking viewers through the moment that Korda captured the iconic image of Guevara. For the first time ever, in KordaVision , director Hector Cruz Sandoval has reunited Alberto Korda, Ra·l Corrales, Liborio Noval , and Roberto Salas - the four giants of classic Cuban photography - with Fidel Castro, to discuss the impact their images have had on the Revolution and the world. A sensational soundtrack accompanies the film, representing Cuba's best music: featuring an original score by Maestro Leo Brouwer and music by Carlos Embale, Carlos Puebla, P18, Beny MorÈ, Los Zafiros, RamÛn VelÛz and Los Compadres.

"KordaVision" has won awards at film festivals in Beverly Hills and San Francisco. It has been shown in 17 festivals around the world. There will be a question-and-answer session with the director, Hector Cruz Sandoval, after the screening.

This film is sponsored by the Cineculture Club at CSUF. Cineculture seeks to promote cultural awareness and discuss issues related to diversity through film. For more information:

***Selection from the Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival

Azerbaijan is ranked one of the world's most corrupt countries, where a reigning ruling family is in its second generation of power. Baku in Azerbaijan, is also the site of the world's first oil well, and is once again becoming a focus for foreign investors as the origin of a major oil, gas, and pipeline project developed by an international consortium led by BP. In Source, a small, mobile and highly inventive Czech film crew travels around the country to investigate and record the impact of this most recent energy boom. They film the surrealist Soviet-era oil fields around Baku, with locals oblivious to the environmental dangers, striking images of cows grazing on polluted land and children playing in toxic sludge. With startling access and more then a little black humour, the filmmakers interview a fascinating cross section of people involved with and affected by the oil boom - allegedly corrupt politicians, oil company employees, businessmen, angry women whose husbands and sons work for very little money in shockingly polluted conditions in this industry. Source also cleverly examines the links from commuter highways in the West back to energy development in Azerbaijan. With the majority of the population living under the poverty line, the country's post-Soviet government is promising oil will bring widespread economic benefits to all, but could this "liquid gold" be more of a curse than a blessing for this troubled country? Presented in association with the Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival

UTAH PHILLIPS. That first class rapscallion and rabble-rouser, folksinger, humorist, and storyteller. Fresno Art Museum 7:30pm. Frank Moschella will open.

UTAH PHILLIPS is a first-class rapscallion and rabble-rouser, as well as a folksinger, humorist, archivist, and storyteller. Pete Seeger says: "If you have never heard Utah Phillips live, you're in for a treat. He's fantastic. Unique. You'll feel better ever after, as you recall him. There's no one like him." Rolling Stone: "Call him a conspicuous enigma: a canny, uncanny blend of Mark Twain and Will Rogers, with a touch of P.T. Barnum and more than a hint of Huck Finn. Utah Phillips is also one of the most important songwriters to be found in North America."
