Free local showings of ÔThe 800 Mile WallÕ

Submitted By Charlotte Hall

"The 800 Mile Wall" highlights the construction of the new border walls along the U.S.ÑMexican border, as well as the effect on migrants trying to cross into the United States. Since border fences were built, well over 5,000 bodies have been recovered in the nearby deserts, mountains, and canals. Directed by John Carlos Frey and produced by Jack Lorenz, this powerful 90-minute film illustrates, in unflinching detail, the ineffective and deadly results of the current border policy and offers some effective strategies to help resolve this current human rights crisis.

There are three free showings of the film in Fremont on October 2, 3, and 15. Learn more about the film and how you can get involved at www.800milewall.org.
