* Iranian picnic in New York

Dear Friends,

After receiving an overwhelmingly number of positive response (~25!) to the proposal supporting the idea of a spontaneous and hopefully perpetual monthly gathering, I am pleased to announce our first upcoming PICNIC! While there's no obligation or requirement to attend every single event, a regular monthly picnic will make it a routine event to be inscribed in everyone's mind.

It will be held at Bear Mountain State Park on Sunday June 3, noon through "you decide!" Such event will then repeat itself at the first Sunday of every month, same time--same place unless overruled by the unanimous majority present at a preceding date, or God forbid the idea died out due to lack of enthusiasm!

The suggested specific location is in that round structure with open roof on it next to the lake in Bear mountain and close to a small zoo. In other words, when you drive into the circle facing the main Building where parking is on your left, there's a couple of hundred yards of pathway on your right that takes you to this site. In the event of weather inclement, contingent on its severity we would either meet at the same place or move into the main Building. Everyone is to bring their own foods, etc. but all are encouraged to share in a pot-luck format and mingle.....

PLEASE do circulate this among all those with a possible interest, have it broadcast on the iranian radio, TV and news media, and do call your friends about it as well. In addition to the above, and as to the possibility for NJ (second monthly Sunday) , LI (3rd Sunday) and NYC (4th Sunday) for those who may not be able to make it to the above Bear Mountain Event, we are still awaiting the identification of specific sites and other pertinent information by those friends who proposed them. As soon as they are available, these information should be posted to this bulletin board. Looking forward to seeing a quality crowd of no less than 500!

Yours truly,

Davood Rahni et al

Directions: Bear Mountain Sate Park is at the most northern section ot he Palisade Parkway next to Bear Mountain bridge in New York State. It is on the Western part of the Hudson River, 20 minutes north of the Tappan Zee Bridge. If needed more detailed directions, please call me at 914 773-3655.

This award is in recognition of the project and the funding plan for an Iranian-American Art Exhibition and Symposium .

Iranian -American Art Exhibition and Symposium can become an annual program established to celebrate the many achievements of contemporary Iranian-American artists.

CIMA will enable the community to view the works of cutting edge Iranian-American artists. The event will be held in New York City in October 2001. The works of second generation Iranian-Americans will be exposed to families, students, educators and art lovers in the city. Our total project budget is $16,000.

* Tell your story for documentary film

What is life like away from home? What do you remember, and what do you miss? What sights, what sounds, what smells? What do you feel when you go back and when you come back? Have you never gone back? What are your successes and your failures here in exile? What is happening to the Iranian in you and where do you belong? Where were you born and where will you be buried?

Amirani Films, the company which made the popular Googoosh documentary for Channel 4 are setting out to make a bigger film about Iranians in the UK. This will be a major film portrait of us, aiming to bring together a diverse range of our fellow countrymen and women to tell life stories, explore roots and identity, celebrate our culture and achievements, and search for common ground between us.

We want to hear from Iranians, young and old, of every persuasion, class and every walk of life. Artists, business people, housewives, grandmothers and fathers, children, everyone and anyone. Those who've been here year just a few years or those who've been here all their lives. If you want to share your experience, your talent and your story please get in touch in Farsi or in English.

The makers of this film belong to no political group and have only one thing to declare; they are Iranian.

* Mehrangiz Kar, PEN award

Soldiers at the Gate: Writers in Enforced Exile An event sponsored by PEN New England's Freedom-to-Write Committee

May 20, 2001, at 5:30 The Colloquium Room, Radcliffe Institute

On May 20, 2001, at 5:30 the PEN New England Freedom-to-Write Committee will host three award-winning international writers at Harvard's Bunting Institute to discuss the topic: Soldiers at the Gate: Writers in Enforced Exile. The event is free and open to the public.

FARAJ SARKOHI, an Iranian fiction writer and magazine-editor will come from his place of exile, Frankfurt, Germany. Joining him will be BEI LING, Chinese poet and editor of Tendency Quarterly, now living in Boston, and ALEJANDRA MATUS, Chilean journalist and author of The Black Book of Chilean Justice, now living in Miami. Each of these distinguished writers has a unique tale to tell of an encounters with an oppressive government. But there is something common to them all. None of them can go home again. If they were to try, they would be greeted by a soldier at the gate.

At this panel the Freedom-to-Write Committee will also make its annual presentation of the VASYL STUS AWARD. This year's recipient is Iranian writer, editor, lawyer, and women's rights activist  MEHRANGIZ KAR. Author of many books on social issues, editor, human rights lawyer and vocal activist for women's rights, Mehrangiz Kar was among the first women attorneys who voiced deep concern against the  Islamization of gender relations in Iran following the revolution.

* Sarkuhi in Seattle

Faraj Sarkuhi, renowned Iranian writer and journalist, will be in Seattle on Sunday June 17 for a reading, lecture, and question-and-answer session. The event will be held in Room 249 Savery Hall on the campus of the University of Washington at 5:00 PM and is projected to last until about 7 PM.

You may recall that Mr. Sarkuhi's struggle for press and intellectual freedoms in Iran attracted worldwide attention in 1998 when he was abducted by the officials of the Islamic Republic's Ministry of Information and held against his will for several weeks. He was eventually released under international pressure and his release led to revelations about the chain of abductions and murders committed by the Ministry of Information.

He now lives and writes in exile in Germany. Mr. Sarkuhi's appearance in Seattle is part of a US tour arranged by PEN American Society.

* PBS documentary om Islam

By Nigel Hunt

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Most Americans do not associate Islam with medical advances or cutting-edge technology, but perhaps they should think again: Hospitals were an Islamic invention, Muslims saved the works of Aristotle and other Greek philosophers and they were the first to use paper widely.

``Hostility exists against Muslims in the United States. People think about the guy in Afghanistan (news - web sites) who is blowing up statues rather than the guy down the street who is a dentist,'' said Rob Gardner, who produced and director a documentary about Islam for the Public Broadcasting Service.

Gardner said his documentary, ``Empire of Faith,'' being aired on May 8, sought to avoid ``negative stereotypes.'' Much of the 2 1/2-hour program is spent looking at the positive achievements of the first 1,000 years of Islam >>> FULL TEXT
