***TUES AUG 9 at 6:30-9:00PM Peace Resource Center of San Diego, present a "Special Screening of "ATOMIC MOM"... ATOMIC MOM a feature-length documentary film about two women, both mothers, who have very different experiences of the atom bomb. One is the filmmaker's mother, Pauline Silvia, who was a biologist in the Navy in the early 1950's and was sent to the Nevada Test Site where she participated in five detonations. At 23 years old, she was one of the few women scientists on an elite team of researchers. After decades of silence, Pauline is in a crisis of conscience about the work she did, work that involved animal testing. In our present moment of Wikileaks, Pauline is a similar whistle-blower having been cowed by the silencing machine of the US military. She reveals some of the grim and dark secrets of the U.S. atomic testing program. In an attempt to reconcile with her own mother's past, her daughter, filmmaker M.T. Silvia, meets Emiko Okada, a Hiroshima survivor trying to resolve her own history in Japan. She was eight years old when the bomb was dropped and her twelve-year-old sister was never found. After many years of silence, Ms. Okada gives testimony of her atomic bomb experience and her commitment to education and disarmament. The film follows these survivors, each on a different end of atomic warfare, as they "meet" through the filmmaking process, and as they, with startling honestly, attempt to understand the other. Atomic Mom weaves an intimate portrait of a complex mother-daughter relationship within an obscure - but important - moment in American history. It also provides a global perspective on our collective Atomic legacy. Through revealing interviews with Japanese survivors, doctors, and historians, Atomic Mom reveals the truth regarding the post-war press code in Japan and the censorship of images and information related to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The film also questions what is lost when the drive for scientific innovation runs over basic moral and ethical principles. In Japan, Ms. Okada and her daughter reveal their personal story with an allegiance to peace and reconciliation, fostering an interesting parallel between the filmmaker and her mother. Atomic Mom invites viewers to confront American Nuclear History in a way that it has never happened before. This story, of an American Scientist and a Hiroshima Survivor finding peace decades after the bombing, empowers individuals and communities to work toward global unity. It inspires dialogue about human rights, personal responsibility, and the possibility - and hope - of peace. BRING A FRIEND! http://www.atomicmom.org/t​railer.htm Light Refreshments at 6:30PM Where: Peace Resource Center of San Diego, 3850 Westgate Plaza, SD.

Meanwhile, corporations enjoy unfettered access to “corporate welfare” in the form of tax loopholes, control of public media, offshore accounts, skyrocketing profits and political influence. Is the Black Church relevant in today’s political climate where greed succeeds? As the Far (Religious) Right serves up an increasingly “uncharitable” agenda for the least among us, is the Black Church still a “drum major for justice”?

Rally & Protest in " FREEDOM PLAZA" in Washington, D.C." ~ A Call to Action - Oct. 6, 2011 ~ A Concert, Rally & Protest will kick off a powerful & sustained nonviolent resistance to the corporate criminals that dominate our government! And onward October 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. It is time to light the spark that sets off a true democratic, nonviolent transition to a world in which people are freed to create just and sustainable solutions. We call on people of conscience and courage—all who seek peace, economic justice, human rights and a healthy environment—to join together in Washington, D.C., beginning on Oct. 6, 2011, in nonviolent resistance similar to the Arab Spring and the Midwest awakening. A concert, rally and protest will kick off a powerful and sustained nonviolent resistance to the corporate criminals that dominate our government. October2011.org
