$3-$5 suggested donation

This coming Thursday evening, The Bloom Collective kicks off its Dinner and a Movie series with the widely acclaimed film, Rethink Afghanistan. October 2010 marks the 9th Anniversary of the US Occupation of Afghanistan.

While mainstream media has lulled Americans into ignoring the brutality and violence that this occupation brings to the Afghani people on a daily basis, this film intelligently lays out the facts and figures that prove the only rational solution is a negotiated peace. For example, did you know the US spends more than $1 million per soldier per year to fund this war?

As the film’s website states, “This ground-breaking, full-length documentary focuses on the key issues surrounding the War in Afghanistan, raising critical questions that Congress and the American people need to address.” The documentary can also be viewed free online in parts.

The Bloom Collective will serve a light supper (with vegan options) before the film begins. Afterwards, folks will discuss ways to take action for peace in Afghanistan.
