Award-winning film “Budrus” to be shown by Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine

Bangor -

BANGOR, Maine — The award-winning documentary film, “Budrus,” depicting how a Palestinian village in the West Bank defeated Israeli occupation through unarmed resistance, will be shown at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, at the Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine in Suite 100, located at 96 Harlow St. The showing is free and open to the public and will be followed by a discussion. For more information, or if childcare is required, call ahead at 942-9343. “Budrus” shines a light on people who choose nonviolence to confront a threat. With today’s pessimism about the plight of Palestinians, conflict in the Middle East and Israel’s future, this film gives hope that massive nonviolent resistance, with U. S. and global support. may lead to real peace and justice.
