Take to the streets during the day and enjoy an exhibit and
concert in the evening. Demand that the U.S. and the Organization of American
States (OAS) end their interference in Haiti. Monday, March 29, marks the 34th
anniversary of Haiti’s constitution. The constitution is being violated by
former Haitian president Jovenel Moïse’s attempts to stay in power, fully
backed by the U.S., OAS and CORE Group. Demand that Moïse step down. Moïse is
being backed by the U.S. for at least three reasons: his government prioritizes
the welfare of transnational corporations over that of Haitian citizens; Haiti
has natural resources that U.S. corporations want; and his government supports

Invitation to film screenings and a round table taking place on Tues., March 30

and debate: 33 Days in Utopia & The Beekeeper. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/defiance-on-film-standing-up-to-nuclear-power-through-protest-and-the-arts-tickets-145551730143.
All those who RSVP for the event will receive a private link to view both
films. The Heinrich Böll Stiftung, Washington, DC in collaboration with the
Goethe-Institut Washington, DC, and Beyond Nuclear will present four events
during 2021, in a year that marks 10 years since the Fukushima nuclear
disaster, and 35 years since the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The event series
Standing Up to Nuclear Power through Protest and the Arts will showcase
different examples of both mass protest and deeply personal resistance.
Jointly, we will explore how the performing and visual arts, including film,
music, theatre, fashion and painting — along with protest and resistance — can
make a powerful statement of opposition to nuclear power and propel action
against climate change.
The opening event—Defiance on Film—features the
directors and protagonists from two new documentary films: 33 Days of Utopia
(2020, Germany) and The Beekeeper (2020, United Kingdom). The German
documentary, 33 Days of Utopia, literally digs up history, as an archeologist
unearths artifacts that were part of a 1980 encampment of 800 people who
created their own “utopia” as they protested a proposed nuclear waste dump at
The Beekeeper features Katie Hayward, a beekeeper in
North Wales, who stood almost alone in her fight against the bulldozers that
would destroy her farm in preparation for a new two-reactor nuclear site at
Wylfa-B on the island of Anglesey. Rejected by her neighbors who sold out to
the nuclear company, Horizon (Hitachi), Hayward spirals in and out of
depression and near suicide as she navigates her one-woman battle to save her
bees, her farm animals, and the ancestral land she loves.
The March 30 event will feature 33
Days of Utopia director, Roswitha Ziegler; Rebecca Harms, who participated in
the Gorleben encampment and went on to become a Green Party Member of the
European Parliament; Attila Dészi, archaeologist at the University of Hamburg;
Anglesey beekeeper, Katie Hayward; and Will McGregor, director of The
Beekeeper. The ‘round table’ discussion will be moderated by Beyond Nuclear’s
Linda Pentz Gunter, followed by questions from the audience.
