The Response & Amensty International

Free Screening of “The Response”


Amnesty International Group 22’s monthly meeting June 24, 2010, 7:30 PM will be held in the lounge of the Cal Tech Y, at 1350 San Pasqual, between Hill and Holliston, south side. (Just behind the two curving walls forming a gate to a path. Signs will be posted. Also see the map.


To coincide with the June 26th International Day in Support of Victims of Torture and Amnesty International’s Counter Terror with Justice campaign, we will have a showing of “The Response”. A discussion will follow.  Please join us! Refreshments, Fair Trade included, will be provided.

About the film: “THE RESPONSE” is a courtroom drama based upon the actual transcripts of the Guantanamo military tribunals (known as CSRTs). In the film, three military judges must decide the fate of a suspected enemy combatant. Is he guilty of providing material support to Al-Qaeda, leading to the deaths  of several American soldiers? Or is he an innocent victim of circumstances as he claims?

The film has screened at the Pentagon, Congress, West Point, the Department of Justice, foreign embassies, universities and law schools including Harvard, Columbia and UCLA, and film festivals across the country including seven Academy Award qualifying festivals.”
