The Summer of Truth
Sheffield Indymedia has organised a series of film screenings that challange the concept of the perputal 'war on terror' and questions the real motives of the governments and corporations who are promoting this war.
These films have never been seen on TV or screened in the cinema.
One of the central themes of many of the films is the proposition that the attacks in New York and Washington on 11th September 2001 were actually an inside job organised by elements within the US administration in order to win public support for an offensive war to gain control of oil resources in the Middle East.
The films are screening every Sunday evening in July at SIF (Sheffield Independent Film) on Brown Street, entry is a suggested donation of £1 and there will be time for discussion about the issues raised in the films after each screening.
The films were due to be screened at the Matilda Social Centre but have had to be moved to SIF due to Matilda being evicted.
For the full listing of the films see the Summer of Truth page.
Along with improved ventilation resulting from the removal of just one brick in the wall, it is hoped that he addition of air conditioning will encourage people to stay inside the sound proofed building during events rather than hang around outside shouting and pissing in our neighbours doorways. And of course you can also expect ice cold drinks to be available and don't forget the roof 'garden' if you really must enjoy the 'pleasent' summer evening weather.
