    Subject: Abbie Hoffman at the LBC/Anarchist Forum
    The Anarchist Forum will be doing its November stuff on
    Tuesday the 14th at the Brecht Forum.  We'll be showing "Steal This
    Movie" and afterwards there will be a discussion of it by some of
    Abbie's anarchist friends.
                       Abbie Hoffman and "Steal This Movie"
                           The November Anarchist Forum
                      On Tuesday, November 14, at 7:30 PM, the Libertarian
    Book Club's Anarchist Forum
    presents a discussion on  "Abbie Hoffman and 'Steal This Movie'."  This
    past summer, Hollywood
    released a surprisingly well-intentioned biopic of the late Abbie
    Hoffman, noted American dissident
    and one of the most creative, historically important anarchist activists
    of the 20th century.  We'll
    screen a videocassette of the film "Steal This Movie" [111 mins,] and
    then discuss its accuracy and
    assess its propaganda pros and cons.  Bring your own popcorn.   The
    post-screening discussion will
    be moderated by Mayer Vishner, one of Abbie's friends from 1967 until
    his death in 1989 and
    coordinator of his cocaine-bust defense committee.  The event will take
    place at the Brecht Forum
    on the 10th floor of 122 West 27th St. [between 6th and 7th Aves.], a
    short walk from the 28th St.
    1, 9, N, and R stops, the 34th St. B, D, and Q stop, and the 23rd St. F
         There is no set fee for the presentation, but a contribution to aid
    the LBC is requested.  If you
    have questions, contact the LBC /Anarchist Forum, 212-979-8353, 339
    Lafayette St., Room 202,
    NYC, NY 10012 or e-mail: roberterler@erols.com.
