Film screening of Across the Frontlines: Ending the Nuba Genocide

Oregon Holocaust Resource Center and the Never Again Coalition present: a film screening of Across the Frontlines: Ending the Nuba Genocide. Wednesday, December 5, 7:00 – 8:30pm 1953 NW Kearney, Portland, OR 97209 Run time: 48 minutes followed by a brief Q&A Over a year ago, the regime in Sudan led by Omar al-Bashir, unleashed a wave of violence on its own people in South Kordofan province. This is home to the Nuba Mountains. With crops destroyed, agriculture interrupted, and Bashir refusing to allow humanitarian aid in, hundreds of thousands of lives are threatened by war-related causes such as preventable disease and forced starvation. Operation Broken Silence, a Tennessee based non-profit, slipped across the frontlines into the Nuba Mountains a few months ago to document what is going on. This turned into the first large scale media project to document this war. Daily bombings, ground fighting, starvation and preventable disease are claiming lives right now. Come to the screening and find out the simple things that YOU can do to help put an end to this violence.
