Feature Evening Event for Monday May 14th: Film Screening of “5 Days In Denver”
ABOUT THE FILM:
For 5 days in 2008, a group of protesters calling themselves Re-create 68 took to the streets of Denver to dissent against the American government at the Democratic National Convention (DNC). Defying federal court orders, riot police and bad press, this motley assemblage of men and women ranging in age from 21 to 71, set out to ‘re-create the spirit of the sixties’ and exercise their version of democracy with their voices and bodies as their only political capital.

Featured Evening Event Wednesday May 16, Wednesday, 7 pm:
by Greg Mitchell and Kevin Gosztola
“Greg Mitchell and Kevin Gosztola have provided, from the start, some of the most important coverage of WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning. They have shone a bright light on Manning’s courageous whistle-blowing and brutal incarceration–and now in this timely and vital book they raise many serious questions surrounding all of that, and the new legal maneuvers against him.” — DANIEL ELLSBERG
FEATURED EVENING EVENT FOR THURSDAY MAY 17th:
