Brief Report on Teach-in #3 + Next Week’s Film Screening

March 25, 2011

Today’s teach-in was held from 1-5pm.  Many thanks to everyone who came!  And many thanks also to the good people at QPIRG McGill who provided us with a nice space where we could continue our conversations.

We will be screening the 2004 documentary film Hibakusha at the End of the World by Hitomi Kamanaka next Monday, March 28th on the campus of McGill University in Leacock Hall, Room 26 at 6pm.  

We will have a discussion following the film and will need to leave the room by 9:30pm.

 The film is 116 minutes.  Everyone is welcome.

The suggestion of a dance party in lieu of a teach-in for next weekend (April 1?) was warmly received at today’s teach-in.  We will keep you posted as plans develop.

We also have a teach-in planned for April 7 from 1-5pm.  Location and other details TBA.
