Film Screening in Support of Marie Mason

Wellington people are showing a screening of 'If a Tree Falls' in support of Marie Mason, an imprisoned activist in the United States.
The film will be shown at:
the People's Cinema on on Friday, 25 October 2013 at 6.30pm.

"Our world is faced with some tremendous problems: climate change, war, racism, sexism, colonialism, pollution, deforestation, genetic engineering, corporate exploitation...the list could go on and on. There are millions of people who have taken action to stop these in-justices and bring about a better world. Many of them are sitting in prisons serving long and difficult sentences for standing up for their belief in justice, their desire to stop a wrong or for daring to fight back against systematic oppression and exploitation.
From the United States, to Russia to New Zealand and everywhere in between, political prisoners, those who have been imprisoned for holding, advocating or acting on dissenting political views, are with us and are part of our social struggles.
For those of us who care about these wider social issues, we have a responsibility to stand in solidarity with political prisoners. We have a responsibility to provide aid and support to them, and to struggle for their freedom. They are the imprisoned captives of injustice."

The Freedom Shop has zines and books about prison, prison abolition and 'political' prisoners.
