  Paying the Price for Peace - A Documentary on Brian Willson

*When:* Saturday, October 1, 2016, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
*Where: * Cambridge Friends Meeting • 5 Longfellow Place • Harvard 
Square Red Line Stop • Cambridge

Friends Meeting at Cambridge (5 Longfellow Park, Cambridge) is honored 
to be able to show the documentary “Paying the Price for Peace 
<http://payingthepriceforpeace.com/about/>” on Saturday evening, October 
1st at 7:00.  The film chronicles the life and witness of Brian Wilson 
who in 1987 during a protest was run over by a train carrying weapons 
from a naval weapons depot in California. The loss of both legs and 
nearly his life have not slowed him down, and the file contextualizes 
his stand for peace. Free and open to the public.

Paying the Price for Peace exposes the truth about the United States’ 
addiction to war, and the lies it perpetuates in order to wage ongoing 
violence, through the life and times of Air Force veteran S. Brian 
Willson and other veterans.

Other peace activists in the film include: Alice Walker
