Dear GVCP Member:

NEXT GVCP MEETING is SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8th, 1:00 PM (Lunch), 1:30 PM (Meeting).  Omega Restaurant, 4182 Lakeville Road, Geneseo.

SAVE THE DATE: Geneseo Peace Action and GVCP will cosponsor an important movie called On the Side of the Road, directed by Israeli filmmaker Lia Tarachansky. The film focuses on the events of the 1948 war that led to the country’s independence, and to the Palestinian refugee problem.  The film also tells the story of the director, Lia Tarachansky, an Israeli who grew up in a settlement in the West Bank, but as an adult began to realize the consequences, for the Palestinians, of the Israeli occupation.

The problem is that, despite everyone’s efforts, we don’t have a firm date on which we will show the film.  We hope it will be in early November, on the SUNY Geneseo campus, probably on a weekday afternoon.  We also hope that the director will be present, or at least can speak to us on Skype.  STAND BY FOR DETAILS!

SAVE THE DATE:  Saturday, December 5th, 11:00 AM – 12:00 NOON ANNUAL GVCP “DON’T BUY WAR TOYS” DEMONSTRATION.  Bring peaceful toys to demonstrate gifts that don’t encourage war and violence!
