Tuesday, June 19, 7pm, Northwood-High Building, 2231 N. High St., Rm. 100

Join the Progressive Peace Coalition for a screening of the documentary “The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relations War in the United States.” Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and its repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world — except the United States.

This documentary takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts with the United States. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, this film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israeli lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor.

Open discussion will follow the screening of this film (84 minutes) which will be free and open to the public.

Free parking is available in the “R” spaces — “R” for “Rardin Clinic” — behind the building.
