Alternative To Neo-Nazi Rally On Saturday

(Toledo, OH) For those desirous of a positive event to attend in lieu of dodging the snowballs (or worse) likely to fly at the neo-Nazis on Saturday, a group called Human Values for Transformative Action is sponsoring a film and discussion event at the Collingwood Arts Center from 2 to 4:30 PM.

The featured film is entitled "Promises," and it examines the history of Israel and Palestine through the stories of seven children. Here is a promotional blurb from the film's website:
PROMISES explores the nature of these boundaries and tells the story of a few children who dared to cross the lines to meet their neighbors. Rather than focusing on political events, the seven children featured in PROMISES offer a refreshing, human and sometimes humorous portrait of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The Collingwood Arts Center is located at 2413 Collingwood Boulevard in the Old West End. Admission is free, and this might be a good event for teenagers to attend instead of confronting the Nazis.

This is a great idea. I'm not in toledo, and don't know the nuances to what's going on, but it seems to me that in general, at rallies there will always be problems because the counter-protesters are just as nutty as the demonstrators. All the rational people in the middle have better things to do. (no disrespect for those going to counter-protest though).
