In celebration of Passover we hold our annual Liberation Seder. We will remember the timeless Jewish story of resistance and we’ll come together to celebrate overcoming injustice and remember the connection to all struggles for liberation. Remember to bring a potluck dish and to bring friends and family!
Gary Leupp will review the course of U.S.–Russian relations since 1991, from the decade-long honeymoon with the Yeltsin regime to the Putin era. Leupp will discuss the Ukrainian situation in historical context, emphasizing the ethnic divide in that country and how the February 2014 regime change backed by the U.S. provoked a much misunderstood secessionist movement. Leupp will comment on the unpredictable Trump positions on Russia. Gary Leupp is an Author and Professor of History, Tufts University, since 1988.
Stephen Kinzer, author and journalist, will answer these questions when he discusses his new book The True Flag.

"Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and
the Birth of American Empire" with Stephen Kinzer
"War & Priests" examines the establishment of the first Catholic colleges
in the United States in the aftermath of the American Revolution.
The first Catholic bishop, John Carroll, was able to fund the expansion
of the church from the reestablishment of the slave economy
after the war, and a stream of Catholic priests fleeing the revolutions
in France and Haiti staffed these new Catholic institutions.
A teach-in on the history of the Vietnam War, with a focus on resistance, was held on March 28, 2015 at MIT. The program was organized by United for Justice with Peace, the eastern Massachusetts coalition formed after 9/11 and hosted by MIT's Technology and Culture Forum.
Veterans For Peace put out a national call for programs to accurately reflect the events of the period in response to a major Pentagon effort to officially rewrite history and sanitize that war as a propaganda campaign to justify current wars.
An Event Marking the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington
Last night members of Arlington United for Justice with Peace went to see the timely movie Selma that just opened at our hometown movie theater, The Capitol.
The actors give rather understated performances in a slow-paced film punctuated by violence. The bombing of the Birmingham church is set squarely at the beginning and although I knew what was coming I jumped at the horror of it: Cynthia Wesley, Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair.
