Screening of film "Newburgh Sting"

Friday, March 6 in Kingston: Films of Palestine Series presents the film "Newburgh Sting"
7:00 - 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Catskills, 320 Sawkill Road.
"The Newburgh Sting" is a documentary about the FBI’s entrapment of four Muslim men supposedly involved in a 2009 Bronx terrorism plot. It was later brought to light that the four men were coaxed and bribed into participating. The film reveals how the FBI targets Muslim communities in poor neighborhoods and lures believers into planning acts of terrorism.
SPECIAL GUEST: Liz Mc William, mother of David Williams, member of Newburgh Four

Sponsored by: Middle East Crisis Response and Hudson Valley Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Contact: or 518 291-6808.


We had a very good turnout, and Liz Mc William's account of her son's trial and incarceration added a good deal to the experience. Thanks to Bennett Weiss from bringing the film to us.
