'Taxi to the Dark Side' and 'Outside the Law'

Central London Stop the War public event - The War in Afghanistan
Wednesday 28 April, 7.30 pm

Screening of the Oscar-winning ‘Taxi to the Dark Side’
Followed by guest speakers: Mirco Barchetta (Medical worker, worked in Helmand province), Joan Humphries (Military Families Against the War ), Guy Smallman (Photojournalist recently returned from Afghanistan).

Greenside Community Centre, near Marylebone station, Lisson Green Estate. 24 Lilestone st, NW8 8SR.

'In the last two weeks before the election the three main parties are doing their best not to mention the war. Meanwhile an official ban on embedded frontline journalists helps keep up the media blackout. CLSTW's event will turn the tables on the official silence around Afghanistan, with images and stories from those who've paid the heaviest costs.'
