On January 11th, 2013, Miamians will mark the 11th anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Peace activists will march on United States Southern Command, the Doral military base that oversees all of Latin & South America, including Joint Task Force Guantanamo.
Tellingly, many other Americans will be reflecting differently on America’s downward spiral into military barbarity – they’ll be in movie theaters.
That’s right, on the same day as the Annual Day of Action Against Gauntanamo, the dramatization of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty opens in theaters across America. This film not only glorifies America’s foreign policy of extrajudicial assassination and torture, it’s also nominated for 4 Golden Globes, including Best Picture!
Join The Autonomous Playhouse, The Food Not Bombs puppet collective, along with other peace groups in Miami for “Tortured/Entertained,” a puppet parade and presentation on the state of the military entertainment complex and our government’s snuff film glorification of the war on terror.
