Last Days of Vietnam: film and discussion

When: Sunday, October 29, 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: Center for Marxist Education • 550 Mass. Ave. • Cambridge

During the chaotic final weeks of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as the panicked South Vietnamese people desperately attempt to escape. On the ground, American soldiers and diplomats confront the same moral quandary: whether to obey White House orders to evacuate U.S. citizens only—or to risk punishment and save the lives of as many South Vietnamese citizens as they can. The events recounted in the film mainly center on the US evacuation of Saigon codenamed Operation Frequent Wind.

Resisting Lynching in India

Where: encuentro 5 • 9A Hamilton Place • near Red Line stop at Park Street • Boston

Muslims, Dalits, elderly women often happen to be the targets of these hate crimes, which flourish in an overall environment of hate and intimidation, the pretext for which is often, though not always, the consumption of 'beef'. India has seen a spike in these hate crimes since the coming of Narendra Modi government into power, amid a culture of impunity whereby lynching accused are not only let out on bail, but also defended by people holding elected office.
