ABOUT THE FILM
AFTER TILLER intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they've done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.

What Must Be Done
"None of us can be mere spectators in this situation. And we don't have to be-there is a way, now, to go to work on these contradictions." 
 
The government shutdown dominates the news. Republicans and Democrats fight in a stalemate, unable to agree. There is talk, including by mainstream commentators, that "our democracy is imperiled." (See Thomas Friedman's op-ed, "Our Democracy Is at Stake," in the October 1 New York Times.) Each night witnesses a parade of extreme right-wing demagogues dominating the cable news shows, influencing the thinking of millions, and rallying people to their side.  Read more

Sun. October 13, 3:00 pmAA
Author Reading & Book Signing 
with Pamela Olson  
 
Fast Times in Palestine,
A Love Affair with a Homeless Homeland  
  
For much of her life- like many Westerners - most of what Pamela Olson knew of the Middle East was informed by headlines and stereotypes. But when she stumbled into Palestine on a post-college backpacking trip, she found herself thrown with dizzying speed into the realities of daily life in the West Bank.
   
Harrowing, funny, vivid, entertaining and deeply humane, Fast Times in Palestine opens a rare window onto Palestinian life. It's impossible not to be moved on nearly every page.
     - Sandy Tolan, author of The Lemon Tree

I realize that without knowing it, I have long waited for this book, although I could not have imagined its lyric magic in advance of reading. 
     - Richard Falk, professor emeritus of                      international law at Princeton

What makes her story so compelling is that she tells it in an honest and straightforward way, not by relying on hot rhetoric. For anyone who wants to learn the truth about life under Israeli occupation, this book is a superb starting point.
Prof. John J. Mearsheimer, co-author of The Israel Lobby
   
Suggested donation: $10.00

Join Revolution Books in a discussion of
The Shutdown, the Showdown,
and the Urgent Need to Repolarize...for Revolution
THURSDAY OCTOBER 10,  7 pm
October 7, 2013 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us

The government shutdown dominates the news. Republicans and Democrats fight in a stalemate, unable to agree. There is talk, including by mainstream commentators, that "our democracy is imperiled." (See Thomas Friedman's op-ed, "Our Democracy Is at Stake," in the October 1 New York Times.) Each night witnesses a parade of extreme right-wing demagogues dominating the cable news shows, influencing the thinking of millions, and rallying people to their side.  
  
What is going on? Is the situation as serious as some say? Why? Who are these Republicans? Are they just lunatics, fools, and racists-or are they actually proceeding with a strategy and a goal in mind?
And what about the Democrats-are they "finally standing up for reason"?
Why do these disagreements seem so bitter-is it for real, is it for short-term advantage, or is it just fakery altogether?
What is really being fought over-is it only about health care? What stakes, if any, do the masses of people-in the U.S. but, more important, all around the world-have in this conflict? And what challenge does this pose to those who really want to see a better world? Read more
