Letter to the Editor,
Immigration policy has become one of the most divisive issues in the United States. For those on both sides of the argument, approximately 12 million undocumented immigrants are clumped together as one, neglecting the fact that these immigrants are human beings, not statistics.
The documentary “2000 Miles North” was expertly created by Kent State University students, documenting the stories of Guatemalan economic refugees and locals in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. It reveals the refugees’ struggles with language barriers due to speaking very little Spanish but mostly indigenous tongue and work-related challenges and their plight for a decent life in a new land.
The documentary will be shown on: Friday, January 19, 2007 at 7:30 pm, at the World People Exchange at C-Space, 4323 Clark Ave. in Cleveland. We will be discussing the movie afterwards. Refreshments will be served. We are asking for $7 or what you can afford as a donation to help out our World People Exchange Program.
Thanking you in advance,
Co-Director World People Exchange
