Steve will contact the library to clarify a meeting room the first

Film series plans: 03 26 10 “Tapped,” a new documentary about
global water corporate packaging and sales, by the makers of “Who
Killed the Electric Car?” and 04 16 10 “Yes Men,” a new

Peter is interested in anchoring a table at the Hope Festival in
Orono on 04 24 10. Ideas for presentation include: demonstration and
documentation materials on creating our “Peace on Earth” banners; a
loose-leaf binder with posters Peter designed for films PPJ has
shown; and a laptop slide show of PPJ history.
Tom Whitney has appealed by email to PPJ for support of a proposed
activist and informational group to be called “Maine Forum on Our
America.” We agreed to confer by email in response to this proposal.
Tom Whitney also announced to Peter that he’s working on arranging a
speaking tour by Bob Brown on issues relating to Haiti. Peter
facilitating contact between Tom and Betsy Botts, whose steel drum

Peter floated an idea for a forum that could discuss health care
reform issues in the summer or fall, possibly to be co-sponsored with
another local organization. This forum might precede or follow a
major bill addressing health care reform and comment in either case
on possibilities and probabilities in response to the current
situation. We discussed potential local and nationally recognized
speakers who might participate in a panel on this topic.
Next PPJ meeting will be Wednesday 04 07 10 in the library,
downstairs in the Bass Room.
