November 10th Thursday  7:00 p.m. Film night  "13TH" This just released documentary by academy award winning director, Ava DuVernay puts the focus on the historical impact of institutional racism. 13TH refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States." The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out with a mixture of archival footage and interviews with activists, politicians, historians and formerly incarcerated women and men. Rolling Stone quoted " 13TH is one for the cinema time capsule, a record of shame so powerful that it just might change things". Free

November 11th  Friday 6:30p.m. Sierra Club film night "Gold Fever"  8304 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard #101, San Diego 92111 GOLD FEVER More than 500 years after the arrival of the conquistadors, the fever for gold still persist. As Wall Street investors push gold prices to record highs, in the highlands of Guatemala a company called Goldcorp Inc. levels ancient mountains to feed that fever, with no regard for the lives of the people who live in those mountains. The story follows the efforts of three indigenous women to defend their ancestral lands, in the face of long odds and grave consequences. We shall also discover the links between what is happening in rural Guatemala - and what almost happened to sacred Indian lands in the desert of the eastern Imperial Valley – and how the Sierra Club became involved in the struggle.
