Knight Law Center to Host ‘The 800 Mile Wall’ Showing Today
The 800 Mile Wall, a film highlighting the construction of walls along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as the effect on migrants trying to cross into the United States, will be shown at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, in Knight Law Center 175.
The 90-minute film is an examination of a U.S. border strategy that many believe has caused the death of thousands of migrants and violates fundamental human rights. A panel discussion featuring the filmmaker John Carlos Frey will take place following the showing.
This event is free and open to the public. It is presented by the University of Oregon Department of Education Studies and co-sponsored by the Departments of Philosophy, Ethnic Studies, and Romance Languages, The Clark Honors College, the UO Multicultural Center, the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies, Labor Education and Research Center, UO Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), and the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics.
