Blockade – A documentary by Arif Yousuf

February 13, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Blockade – A documentary by Arif Yousuf
85 Minutes, 2015

The Blockade documentary is a story of how Quaker and Jewish activists along with Bangladeshi expats shed light on the Nixon administration’s covert support of the genocide in Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) in 1971. Equipped with just canoes and paddles, the young activists risked everything to stop the shipment of arms and save lives half the way across the world. These activists had worked closely with MLK and have used non-violent resistance in the decades since to bring about change….. And they are still going strong.

The film is based on the book BLOCKADE: A Guide to Nonviolent Intervention by Richard K. Taylor
