The Rise of Cyber Jihad

By David Johanssen

Terrorist groups like ISIS are embracing a bold new weapon that has the power to produce greater influence than traditional guns and bombs. The story of the Islamic brotherhood is being told on social networking sites around the world; extremists are sharing their messages of hate and violence by taking advantage of the Internet. Jihadist propaganda is more visible than ever before and ordinary civilians from across the globe are being lured into these organizations in record numbers. Young men are becoming “self-radicalized,” seeking out ideological inspiration and consuming this “virtual violence.”

Wednesday, June 8, at 5pm we present Cyberjihad, a disturbing new documentary that explores a chilling new venue in the evolving war on terror, and it’s a cyber-battle that may prove impossible to win. This exposé sheds light on how radicalization has become possible, and what’s being done to stop it. Discussion to follow. 50 pesos.

Friday, June 10, at 5pm, Climate Change: Disobedience. The future of the planet is under attack. In just the past few years, we’ve witnessed unprecedented waves of brutal storms, massive oil spills engulfing our oceans and sea life, and the hottest temperatures ever recorded in human history. Climate change is real, and it’s up to the will of the people to reverse its adverse effects. 50 pesos

Saturday, June 11, at 5pm: Cuba: The Accidental Eden. Cuba has been restricted economically for the past 50 years, but its relative isolation has left its island wildlife untouched. While much of the Caribbean has poisoned its ecological riches in pursuit of tourism and development, Cuba has remained a safe haven for rare and fascinating indigenous animals. This documentary questions how the lifting of the US trade embargo likely will result in changes which may threaten Cuba’s ecological riches. How will Cuba change as it rejoins the West? Discussion to follow. 50 pesos.
