Mideast Focus Film: Discussion #2

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

DISCUSSION: THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 7 P.M., online via Zoom

The second selection of the 2024 series will be the Al Jazeera film The Lobby—USA: Part 2There will be a discussion of the film on Thursday, April 4, led by former Congressman Brian Baird, an early defender of Palestinian Human Rights in Congress. This film is about the many ways AIPAC influences our government. Our discussion will focus on the lobby and other influences that “we the people” know little about. Part 1 was included in the Spring 2020 film series. There are four parts in all, covering different aspects of the lobby’s work, and you are welcome to watch them all if you wish to go deeper.

Here is the link to watch the film. Please view the film at your convenience and then join in the discussion with Brian Baird on Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m. Pacific Time, online via Zoom. Send a message to seattlemideastfocus@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.
