The DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition presents
JUST VIEWS: a Monthly Video/ Discussion Program



Just Views April 14, 7:20 pm 2006: Free & Open--Meeting Osama Bin Laden.
More than a dozen interviews -- including with his grade school teacher, family friends, fellow Al Qaeda soldiers, and Western journalists introduce us, via this hour-long documentary, to the real person behind the notorious name: Osma Bin Laden. Produced by PBS affiliate WGBH Boston in association with BBC and others, this film biography traces influential events in Bin Laden’s life from his privileged childhood in Saudi Arabia, through his battles with the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, to the attacks of 9/11/01. Join a cross section of the community to try to understand the actions and motives of this man who has declared war on our Western ways. During informal discussion following the screening, we can examine what Bin Laden has said and done during the 5.5 years since 9/11 that he has eluded capture. And we can try to fathom the possible meanings of the "truce" Bin Laden recently offered to the Bush Administration, the cursory rejection that it immediately received, and the paucity of press probings into this.
These 2nd Friday evening Just Views programs start at 7:20 pm, are sponsored by the DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition and held at the Unitarian Church in Naperville IL at 4 S 535 Old Naperville Road (630/505-9408). Directions: Go (south of Route 88) to the corner of Naperville Road and Diehl. Proceed one block east along Diehl, then turn left/north. Enter the Unitarian Church ahead on your right.
Just Views (JV) shows great films on the big screen about vital peace-and-justice issues on 2nd Fridays monthly for free!  College and HS students are urged to join the adult public. View and then share views from various vantages with citizens and invited resource persons. Each night is a stimulating, informal, stand-alone experience. Give suggestions to JV Director sociologist Stephanie Hughes 630/420-4233. Mark your calendar ahead for each second Friday night, pass along this notice, and bring friends!
