The Occupation of the American Mind Film Screening Is Postponed

The proposed June 13 screening of the film, “The Occupation of the American Mind” in the Takoma Park Community Center as part of the We Are Takoma series has spurred expressions of concern and support from a number of organizations and individuals. The Takoma Park City Council appreciates the comments and has asked that the screening of the film be postponed to a later date.

We wish to allow space for a conversation about the points the film makes in a way that allows for people to express their thoughts and perspectives and explore what has changed since the film was made given the current politics in Israel and the United States. How that conversation takes place is still to be determined.

The Council appreciates that several organizations have expressed interest in helping us think through an appropriate approach.
