MAS Freedom Encourages VA/DC/MD Community to Attend Dec. 5 Premier of USA vs. Al-Arain



Posted Image

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful


USA vs. Al-Arian Will be Screened at AMC/Loews Uptown 1 Theatre in Washington, DC

Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 7:00 PM


WASHINGTON, DC – Nov. 29, 2007 - (MASNET) MAS Freedom (MASF), as the civic and human rights advocacy entity of the Muslim American Society (MAS), encourages the Muslim community to attend the December 5 premier of "USA vs. Al-Arain", the multi-awarded documentary film about controversial "terrorism-trial" against Dr. Sami Al-Arain.
"USA vs. Al-Arian" is a disturbing film on freedom of speech in post 9/11 America and political persecution. The film follows the arrest and trial of Sami Al-Arian, an Arab-American university professor accused of supporting a terrorist organization abroad.

For two-and-a-half years, Dr. Al-Arian was held in solitary confinement, denied basic privileges and given limited access to his attorneys. The film is an intimate family portrait documenting how a tight-knit family unravels before our very eyes as trial preparations, strategy and media spin consume their lives.

Norwegian Director Line Halvorsen has made a damning portrait of the case focusing on the trial’s emotional toll.

This is a nightmare come to life, as a man is prosecuted for his beliefs rather than his actions.

DATE

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

LOCATION

AMC/Loews Uptown 1 Theater

3426 Connecticut Ave., N.W.

Washington, D.C.20008

TIME

7:00 PM


A panel discussion will be held after the screening featuring:

DAVID COLE

Professor of Law, GeorgetownUniversity

LINDA MORENO

Trial Attorney, USA vs Al-Arian

LINE HALVORSEN

In 2006, after three years in solitary confinement with no convictions, Al-Arian agreed to a plea bargain to serve 11 more months in prison. He was to be deported in April 2007, but is still being held in a Virginia jail on civil contempt charges (he refuses to testify in an unrelated case). Dr. Al-Arian appeared in federal court on Oct. 17, 2007 at a hearing scheduled by Judge Gerald Lee to revisit the continuing civil contempt citation. The judge denied Dr. Al-Arian's motion for the contempt to be lifted. No reason was given for his decision. Another hearing is scheduled for mid-December.

The fact that you want the snow to stop! If it does, I blame it on you!...Now make du'a that it continues and ends up like it was in 96. Inshallah. Snow is like my far away friend. It comes only once in a while during the breaks and maybe even sometimes before or after, and then leaves. But, sometimes it stays for so long that you want it to leave cause it left such a big mess at your home. :blobblue:
