Please join us on Saturday, June 11th for the sneak peek Bay Area screening of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival award winning documentary If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front. The documentary tells the story of Daniel McGowan, a political prisoner who is currently serving out a seven year sentence at the Control Management Unit at FCI Terre Haute in Indiana for his role in two multi-million dollar arsons against Oregon timber companies.

This screening will be done in conjunction with the International Day of Solidarity with Political Prisoners Marie Mason and Eric McDavid. Cities worldwide will be holding events to highlight the cases of Marie and Eric, who share the unfortunate distinction of having the longest standing sentences of any persons imprisoned for their environmental advocacy in the United States. Both are serving sentences of 20 years or more as a result of the government's sweeping campaign against earth and animal liberation activists.

In addition to the film screening, we will have scrumptious treats for sale and amazing items up for auction. All proceeds from this event will go directly to Marie's and Eric's support funds.

Come out to learn more about Marie and Eric's cases and to show them that we have not forgotten them.

Free Marie and Eric!

Saturday, June 11th - 7 pm sharp!
