Disturbing The Peace – Fourth Friday Film

Disturbing The Peace

The Peace Center’s Fourth Friday Film, “Disturbing the Peace” follows a group of former enemy combatants – both Israeli soldiers from the most elite units, and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have come together to challenge the status quo and say “enough is enough!” The film traces their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to non-violent peace activists and their founding of Combatants for Peace (CFP). While the film is based in the Middle East, it creates an experience that addresses universal themes that are relevant to all of us – regardless of geography. It is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in the story of endless wars that no longer serves us, and with the power of our convictions towards peace as we take action to create new possibilities.

“Disturbing the Peace” shows Friday April 27, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City.  A discussion will be held after the film.  $6 – $10 donation requested.  Beverages and treats available.

What do the youth think?

  

“In the same way that there are limitations on the first amendment  where you can’t cry fire in a crowded theater, you shouldn’t be able to get an AR15 or any weapon that can kill a number of people if you are a mentally unstable individual, if you are a person with a criminal background or somebody with a history of domestic violence.  I don’t get what’s so hard for these legislators to understand.  It’s a sensible gun control that both sides can support, but they suddenly can’t because they are bought by the NRA.”

David Hogg

“Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the NRA telling us nothing could have ever been done to prevent this…

WE CALL BS

They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence…

WE CALL BS

They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun…

WE CALL BS

They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars…

WE CALL BS

They say that no laws could have been able to prevent the hundreds of senseless tragedies that have occurred…

WE CALL BS

That us kids don’t know what we are talking about, that we are too young to understand how the government works…

WE CALL BS

If you agree  register to vote,  contact your local congress people – give them a piece of your mind.”
