Fourth Friday Film - Peace Officer

Peace Officer
The Peace & Justice Center of Nevada County continues to bring you the films you won’t see in the mainstream theaters.  Come to get informed of what’s really going on in your community, state and nation!  This month we present “Peace Officer” Friday, Sept. 22.  
 
Peace Officer is a feature documentary about the increasingly militarized state of American police as told through the story of William “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained his rural state’s first SWAT team only to see that same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later.  These kinds of events are contextualized within a growing national phenomena of violent SWAT raids and governmental immunity laws to further the War on Drugs.  Officers both in cities and small towns like Dub’s are routinely armed with military surplus weapons and equipment, and federal incentives to use what they are given.  All of this has lead to a 15,000% increase in SWAT raids in the United States since the late 1970’s.  
 
“Peace Officer” shows Friday September 22, 2017, 7:00 p.m. at The Open Book (next to Sierra Mtn. Coffee Roasters) 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley. Come for the film, and stay for the discussion to follow. $6.00-$10.00 suggested donation.  Beverages and treats available for purchase.
 
Hope to see you there!
 
Your donations support our monthly films, as well as the Peace Recruiters we take on to the high school campuses to balance out the pervasive military presence of recruiters who seek to lure our youth into war!

Recently leaked documents reveal that a private security firm hired by DAPL parent company Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) targeted, surveilled, and provoked the peaceful and prayerful water protectors at Standing Rock.

Use the link below to ask North Dakota’s State’s Attorney to drop all charges against water protectors.

Sign The Petition

Suggested text is as follows:

I am writing to ask you to drop all charges against water protectors arrested at Standing Rock whom you are presently criminally prosecuting.

Recently unearthed documents and revelations published by several media outlets show that TigerSwan, the private security firm contracted by Dakota Access pipeline parent company Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), violated the law in numerous ways. A growing body of evidence shows that TigerSwan:

• Paid security operatives and employees to infiltrate camps to provoke violence, disruption, and dissent among the nonviolent water protectors, to create divisions based on race and religion, and to plant contraband in the belongings of peaceful and prayerful demonstrators;

• Engaged in a campaign to spread false and defaming information about Water Protectors and Native American tribal members in local, state, and national media outlets and on social media;

• Instigated and directed state and local law enforcement to take action based on physical and electronic surveillance that violated individuals’ constitutional rights to privacy and that targeted people based on race, religion and political beliefs;

• Falsely characterized the nonviolent Water Protectors as “religiously motivated jihadists” and “domestic terrorists” in order to instigate extreme and ongoing violence against them on the part of North Dakota law enforcement, causing one woman to lose her eye and another to lose the use of her arm.

All of this was done while TigerSwan knowingly operated in the State of North Dakota as a private security company without the required state license. Moreover, TigerSwan was also operating in the employ of the Morton County Sheriff’s Office.

I urge you to take decisive action to protect the fundamental rights of the water protectors by ordering the immediate dismissal, with prejudice, of all state criminal cases brought against them as a result of their participation in the protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline and its attendant threats to clean drinking water, sacred religious spaces, and our planet’s environment.

Chase Iron Eyes led resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.  He proved an effective leader and spokesman for the resistance.  Check this link for a summary: Standing with Standing Rock
