Documentary Screening/Fundraiser: HUMAN HARVEST

Documentary Screening/Fundraiser: HUMAN HARVEST

Human Harvest Documentary

You are invited to the Peabody award winning documentary ‘Human Harvest’ at The Hearing Room in Lowell, MA on Friday, December 22nd 2017, 7:30pm. The film will be followed by a Q & A panel discussion with honored guests from the film, former Canadian Secretary of State, David Kilgour and International Human Rights lawyer, David Matas. (see bios in the invitation attached) Light refreshments will be provided.

The event is supported by the International Coalition to End Organ Pillaging in China (EOP). and Doctors against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH).

When reports first emerged from China in 2006 that state-run hospitals were killing prisoners of conscience to sell their organs, it seemed too horrible to believe. But as researchers around the world—including investigators David Matas and David Kilgour—began to uncover the mystery, the true picture became all too clear. Their evidence suggests that tens of thousands of innocent people have been killed on demand to supply an ongoing illegal organ transplant industry. The story of how these two Nobel Peace Prize nominees pieced together the evidence and continue to fight against this industrial-scale crime against humanity is a riveting tale of both personal triumphs and unimaginable horror. To see their report, please visit:www.endorganpillaging.org/an-update

This documentary is particularly important for those involved in organ donation and transplantation, human rights, healthcare, ethics and the law.

Banded Starling & Walker Smith

Banded Starling and Walker Smith split the bill tonight

WALKER SMITH:
"Soulful and evocative with guitar in-hand, Walker Smith is backwoods New Hampshire with edges of Pittsburgh rust. This singer-songwriter pulls from many different influences in his writing. Playful acoustic blues and heartfelt ballads."

BANDED STARLING
"Drawing listeners in with soothing vocal melodies and innocently beckoning lyrics, Banded Starling's alt-folk sound is sweet and moving, they are energetic and raw. Every bit fitting in nicely with the rich tapestry of the New England soundscape."
