PEACE AND JUSTICE FOR GAZA
Presented by Jacob Clapsadle

Mental-Rev and Paradise Cove Productions presents: Return from Gaza and Lebanon, a Night of Short Films and personal accounts from devastated areas in the Gaza Strip and Southern Lebanon.

Raw video: traveling across Gaza and talking with Palestinians one year after the intense destruction of “Operation Cast Lead.”

Dawn, After the Bombs: a story of Lebanese people under bombardment during the 2006 "July War." Filmed by activists from the Bay Area, Dawn, After the Bombs offers an up close and personal look into the experience of people whose homes, families, and lives were uprooted amidst the chaos and destruction of war. (2006 short film, 18 minutes)

Bye bye, Bybee: activists from Code Pink and World Can't Wait stage a protest outside of San Francisco's Federal Courthouse. The action centers on the delivery of a formal judicial complaint against Judge Jay Bybee- one of the architects of the now infamous "Torture Memos" used by the Bush administration to justify the harsh and inhumane treatment of their prisoners. (2009, short film, 10 minutes)

Filmmakers and activists will be on hand to discuss their travel experiences and the videos.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
