Hello,

My name is Nate, and I'm a member of Amnesty International Group 133 in Somerville. We are hosting a free human rights film series this fall, and are trying to spread word far and wide. Please see below for info about our free film screening and amazing panel discussion this Tuesday at Harvard's Kennedy School. If you wouldn't mind, please pass this along to anyone you believe may be interested. Thanks for your time!

Amnesty International Group 133 and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University invite you to a free film screening Tuesday night at 7PM of Total Denial (79 JFK Street, Wiener Auditorium, Taubman Building, Ground Floor). Please join us for this powerful documentary about the Doe v. Unocal case involving Burmese villagers and EarthRights International against the Unocal oil company. The villagers used the Alien Tort Claims Act to challenge the severe human rights abuses committed during Unocal's collaboration with the Burmese government while building a new oil pipeline.

We are very fortunate to have a fantastic panel discussion after the screening about the Unocal case as well as the current situation in Burma:

Aye Aye San - Human Rights Activist/Former Political Prisoner from Burma

Mark McDowell - Canadian Diplomat to Burma, Thailand, and Laos, 2003–2007

Shanti Maung - Student Activist, Harvard Burma Action Group

Tyler Giannini - Co-founder, EarthRights International/ Clinical Director, Harvard Law School Human Rights Program
