Veterans For Peace Long Island is an organization of veterans from all eras and their supporters dedicated to educating the public about the realities and consequences of war and exploring non-violent alternatives for resolving international conflicts.

More information about the Long Island events can be found at www.tinyurl.com/marchfpn.

This is the first World March to circle the earth calling for the end of war and nuclear arms, and the elimination of violence of all kinds. The intention of the March is to:achieve the eradication of nuclear weapons; the progressive and proportional reduction of non-nuclear arms; the signing of non-aggression treaties among nations; and the renunciation of governments of war as a way to resolve conflicts. The March hopes to generate a worldwide social conscience that condemns all forms of violence (physical, psychological, racial, religious, economic, sexual), which is currently so widespread and accepted by societies everywhere. The website for the World March is www.theworldmarch.org

The World March will begin in New Zealand on October 2, 2009, the anniversary of Gandhi’s birth, declared the “International Day of Nonviolence” by the United Nations. It will conclude in the Andes Mountains (Punta de Vacas, Aconcagua, Argentina) on January 2, 2010. The March will last 90 days, three long months of travel. It will pass through all climates and seasons, from the hot summer of the tropics and the deserts, to the winter of Siberia. The American and Asian stages will be the longest, both almost a month. A permanent base of a hundred people of different nationalities will complete the journey.

The World March has been endorsed by hundreds of individuals and organizations across the globe including the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter, Ornette Coleman, Pete Seeger, Cornel West, Isabel Allende, Evo Morales Ayma, Daniel Ellsberg, Green Party of Turkey, Red Cross (Argentina), Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office, Cindy Sheehan, Veterans for Peace, Permanent Secretariat of Nobel Peace Laureates Summits and Mayors for Peace

OLA Film Festival: Friday Oct 2 in Southampton


The Parrish Art Museum and OLA (Organización Latino-Americana) will present the 2009 OLA Film Festival Friday, October 2, from 6 to 11 pm, in the Parrish’s concert hall. The festival will include two films, Mi Mejor Enemigo (My Best Enemy) and El baño del Papa (The Pope’s Toilet), as well as wine, soft drinks, hors d’oeuvres, coffee and cookies, and live music performed by Raul Cardenas and DJ Chile a Admission to the festival is free. 

         Organized by OLA founder Isabel Sepulveda-de Scanlon, the evening will begin with wine  and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a screening of the Chilean/Argentine/Spanish production Mi Mejor Enemigo. This dark comedy was inspired by an actual border skirmish between Chile and Argentina in 1978. An outfit of Chilean soldiers ends up in Patagonia without any idea if they're on Chilean or Argentinean soil. A small company of Argentinean soldiers is waiting in a trench less than a football field away, but neither side knows what to do, especially when they realize their uniforms are all but impossible to tell apart from a distance. Before long a wary conviviality grows between them, though they're still not certain if they should regard one another as friends or enemies.
         An intermission with coffee and cookies  will be followed by the Uruguayan film El baño del Papa, in which the Pope’s impending visit to a small Uruguayan town stimulates a flurry of activity among the poorest residents, who hope to strike it rich by catering to the needs of the 50,000 expected pilgrims. Convinced that his idea is the best, Beto, a petty smuggler, uses up his family’s savings to build a pay toilet, where he hopes thousands of visitors will find relief. This deadpan slice of life is a touching, humorous, and poignant story of human dignity and solidarity.

Mi Mejor Enemigo (My Best Enemy) (2004). Directed by Alex Bowen. With Nicolás Saavedra, Erto Pantoja, Miguel Dedovich. In Spanish; English subtitles. 104 minutes.

El baño del Papa (The Pope’s Toilet) (2007). Directed by César Charlone and Enrique Fernández. With César Troncoso, Virginia Méndez, Mario Silva. In Spanish; English subtitles. 97 minutes.

The OLA Film Festival is sponsored by Film Movement, Venevision, Bridgehampton National Bank, Hampton Coffee Company, VOZ, and Laurel Lake Vineyards.
OLA is a non-for-profit organization serving the Latino Community of the East End through educational, social advocacy, and cultural awareness programs and forums.
The Museum's programs are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, at state agency.
