Blue Hill Public Library
Bonnie, Steve


We decide to agree to co-sponsor an event that Rob Shetterly has tentatively scheduled for 7 pm on Saturday 8 11 2018 at Bagaduce Lending Library to feature an interview with Chris Hedges in relation to his new book


We agreed to help to publicize an “Americans Who Tell the Truth Speaking Event” at the Crosby Center in Belfast on Thursday, Sept 20th. featuring not only Rob Shetterly but also Baldemar Velasquez, one of his newest ATT portrait subjects. Baldemar is a founder of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee of the AFL-CIO and is widely known for his work to empower farm workers. We can also support a WERU-FM 30th Anniversary event with publicity. Details on these to be announced in due time.


Steve agreed to sign PPJ up to co-sponsor an End Violence Together event to be announced sometime, pledging publicity support to our network.


Steve promises to soon watch Do Not Resist, a 2016 documentary that has been screened in February 2018 on PBS. Then we can decide at another meeting whether it fits our needs for a public screening by PPJ.


Please note our new P.O. Box # below.

Our next organizational meeting is scheduled for the Bass Room, in the Blue Hill Library, at 12:30 p.m., (not 12:00, because the room is reserved by others at that hour) on the first Wednesday of next month, August 1, 2018.
