there will be a talk and Q&A with Mario Cardozo at IC on Wed OCT 15 4pm-515pm, Friends 302.

Mario Cardozo is from ACOOC (Collective Action for Conscientious Objectors), which views nonviolent action as a political strategy against the violent and militarized responses to social justice issues that have historically occurred in Colombia. One of the main methods of the Colombian state is recruitment of young men from excluded sectors of society who are forced to serve an obligatory military service, feeding the largest military in all of Latin America.

Many of the actions of ACOOC and Mario Cardozo are collective works created and shared through theater and music. He is the winner of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award 2014. this award celebrates the greatness of people from around the world who are making a difference in their communities and beyond.

In 1971 a small group of citizens, horrified at the seemingly endless war in Vietnam and government harassment of peaceful organizers and civil rights and antiwar activists, mustered their courage and creativity and did something completely crazy: They burglarized an FBI office in the Philadelphia suburb of Media, Pennsylvania.

On the night of one of the biggest sporting events of the decade, they broke in and hauled off every document in the place. They spent the next weeks combing through the papers, copying the most damning and mailing them off to various journalists. They believed that once Congress members and the public knew, they'd do something to change FBI operations.

How did a group of "ordinary" citizens find the courage to take on one of the most powerful institutions, run by one of the most powerful men, in the country? And how did they manage to break into FBI offices, cart off thousands of pages of documents, and vanish without a trace? And how did they get away with airing the bureau's dirty laundry and exposing its political spying? Further, how did they keep their identities secret from 1971 until this very year?

Find out tomorrow (Tues. Sept. 23) at 7:00 p.m. in Textor 103. There will be a screening of 1971, the film based on their gripping story, followed by a Q&A with Jeff Cohen, Park Center for Independent Media director and associate professor of journalism, who has written about the FBI, NSA, and government malfeasance.

Free and open to all. Bring a friend . . . or several.
