The Trials of Daryl Hunt

daryl

There will be a screening of “The Trials of Darryl Hunt” on February 25, 2009 at the TSC Auditorium from 7:00 to 9:00pm.

This film is documentary based on a brutal murder of a white woman and a falsely convicted young black man. This exclusive portrait of a harrowing wrongful conviction offers a provocative and haunting examination of a community – and a criminal justice system – subject to racial bias and tainted by fear.

Admission to this screening is free and space is limited so please encourage your members/students to show up early in order to get good seating.

red_hand_day_2008_plakatThe adolescent are given a voice: Their demands will go to the UN politicians. (Don’t let the children die for you – THEY are the future! Rahel Fuchs, Schleiz, Germany)

Please participate!

“We ask all organizations, communities, parishes, schools and all individuals to join this protest.

We want to present the UN politicians in New York with one million red hands on Red Hand Day 2009 (12th February), the international child soldier’s commemoration day. We will make clear that we expect more than a ban – we want it to be enforced. We would like this demand to be supported by big activity events in all towns, cities and countries.

We want the international protest to be noticed: Please place your pictures and activity event reports at www.redhandday.org. There you will find plenty of information about child soldiers and the Red Hand Campaign.”

If you live in the United States, please send your sheets of paper with the red hands to:
