(WASHINGTON, D.C., 6/16/08) – On Thursday, June 12, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and ACLU of the National Capital Area (ACLU-NCA) co-sponsored the world premiere of the film “Bunker Hill” at the UDC Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
The film tells the story of a fictional “next” massive terrorist attack on the United States and its aftermath in a small Kansas town. Fear in the town leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and, eventually, murder.
The screening was followed by a panel discussion featuring CAIR National Director Tahra Goraya, Film Director Kevin Willmott, and constitutional law professor and Maryland state senator Jamin Raskin.
CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
