Saturday, May 02, 2015


Tonight from 7 pm-10 pm there will be a screening of “Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon” at the 5th Avenue Cinema. The Portland State University Sociology Club will host this event. 

This film will provide viewers with a historical and political analysis of the role that the police have in contemporary society. This film will also cover an overall history of policing within the United States. 

With police brutality being such a widely debated topic there’s no better opportunity to become educated on this topic

The film will also include feature interviews with families of people who were killed by the Portland Police, victims of everyday harassment, activists, historians, and community organizers.
