Two upcoming events
ACLU Director and "Blood on the Mountain"
WV ACLU Director Joseph Cohen tonight at 7 PM at the Wheeling Public Library
The Director of the West Virginia ACLU will be speaking tonight in Wheeling. Here is the Facebook write-up for the event:
Civil liberties are under attack at both the state and federal level. The onslaught is so intense, and coming at such an alarming rate, it is hard to even process how far we have fallen. But people are fighting back.
On Thursday, March 16 at 7:00 pm, join the American Civil Liberties Union of West Virginia for a Town Hall Event at the Ohio County Public Library in Wheeling. ACLU-WV Executive Director Joseph Cohen will lead a discussion on the assault on our civil liberties and how you can join the fightback. If we stand together, we WILL fend off the outrageous violations of our rights.
Screening of Blood on the Mountain Tuesday at 6:30 PM at Wheeling Jesuit University
The Appalachian Institute of Wheeling Jesuit University will hold a screening on Tuesday, March 21st at 6:30 pm at the school's National Transfer Technology Center Auditorium of the 2015 award-winning documentary, Blood on the Mountain.
From the film's web page:
Blood on the Mountain is a searing investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from industrial control in West Virginia. This new feature documentary details the struggles of a hard-working, misunderstood people, who have historically faced limited choices and have never benefited fairly from the rich, natural resources of their land. Blood On The Mountain delivers a striking portrait of a fractured population, exploited and besieged by corporate interests, and abandoned by the powers elected to represent them.
I wrote about the film last November and included its trailer here.
