Education Under Fire

We wanted to let you know of an upcoming event being put on by the Inamori Center, Amnesty International and the CWRU Social Justice Institute. On Thursday March 22, from 6:30-8:30 PM, there will be a free screening of the documentary “Education Under Fire” in Strosacker Auditorium (http://wiki.case.edu/Strosacker_Auditorium).

This documentary is about Iran's three decade long policy of denying the members of its Baha'i community the right to attend any institution of higher education and the Baha'is' efforts to educate their youth through an initiative called the Baha'i Institute for Higher Education (BIHE). The documentary will be followed by a conversation with panelists —including a graduate of BIHE, the film's executive producer, and two CWRU faculty members— and Q&A with the audience.

"One of the most powerful human documentaries I have ever seen, Education Under Fire is sure to galvanize viewers who will be exposed to an outrage that until now has received little attention — the systematic denial of an entire religious community of the right to pursue higher education in their own country."
— Elise Auerbach, Iran Specialist for Amnesty International USA

To view the film's trailer, visit: http://vimeo.com/30003583. The flyer for the event is attached.

We hope you'll be able to attend. We also invite you to sign an online petition urging Iranian officials to end this injustice here: http://www.educationunderfire.com/25/
