New Film on Censorship and the 60s Counterculture to Premiere at Santa Fe Film Festival: Barney’s Wall

“It is a symphony… an epic novel on a wall”—WALL STREET JOURNAL

“In that wall is Samuel Beckett, Henry Miller, Allen Ginsberg, Octavio Paz, Malcolm X, Jack Kerouac, Marguerite Duras, Hubert Selby, Jr., William S. Burroughs.”—NEW REPUBLIC

Racism. War. Censorship. Rage. Rebellion. The Sixties are back. Rejoin the Underground.

The darkness of the current political and cultural landscape makes our film timely and relevant.”

— Sandy Gotham Meehan, Producer/ Director

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, USA, January 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A timely new feature documentary, BARNEY'S WALL: Portrait of a Game Changer, premieres at the Santa Fe Film Festival on February 14, 2019, at 6:00pm. The film probes the lasting political and cultural impact of BARNEY ROSSET, radical Grove Press publisher, free-speech warrior and political activist, one of the most influential cultural impresarios of the last half of the 20th century. Rosset’s fierce mid-century battles against literary censorship, government surveillance, racial bigotry and the Vietnam war blasted open America’s conservative culture and birthed the 60s counter-culture rebellion, paving the way to today’s unfettered artistic expression.

In an era that is facing social and political upheavals similar to the 50s and 60s, the film is meant to underline the fragility of our First Amendment rights and civil liberties.

The film makes the case that Rosset’s unflagging battles against inequality and an intolerant culture make him a contemporary model for today’s political and cultural activists who seek to keep the country open and the First Amendment intact. Perhaps the closest equivalent today of Rosset’s feisty, abrasive, principled and visionary politics is Bernie Sanders. 

Through vast archival footage and incisive commentary from major cultural figures, the film traces Rosset’s lifetime battle to allow all Americans to read, hear and see what the Constitution demands.

An impetuous and fiercely independent outsider, Rosset’s almost mystical belief in the sacredness of the First Amendment fueled his six years of ferocious court battles against mid-century Congressional ‘obscenity’ laws, now largely forgotten, before winning a landmark Supreme Court decision outlawing government censorship. Freed to publish without restraint, Rosset brought the reading public the ‘outliers’ of the era— previously banned authors including D.H. Lawrence, Henry Miller and William S. Burroughs and the now canonical Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Jean Genet, Jack Kerouac, among myriad others. 

Rosset’s commitment to civil rights drove him to publish Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Ho Chi Minh and Frantz Fanon, and to produce the film “Strange Victory”, which equated America’s Jim Crow south with European fascism.

Rosset left behind a wall of his memories, encapsulated in intricate vignettes embedded into a 15’ x 22’ wall of his East Village loft. The film uses the vignettes as portals into the formative influences that drove a rebel, war photographer, filmmaker and publisher to an enduring defense of freedom of expression. The loft and the wall have been destroyed by real estate developers undertaking the gentrification of the Lower East Side of NYC. The film is the only record of both.

The documentary has been privately screened at major cultural venues in New York City, San Francisco and Paris. Two successful Kickstarters helped fund production of the film.

Produced by FoxHog Productions, NYC, an independent media company that produces and invests in films and video about artists and thinkers whose provocative work alters the cultural and intellectual status quo.

Directed by Sandy Gotham Meehan and Williams Cole, cinematography by David Leitner, edited by Kasia Plazinska.

Surge in Baker Acts Prompts Mental Health Watchdog to Take Action

The headquarters for CCHR Florida are located in downtown Clearwater.

The headquarters for CCHR Florida are located in downtown Clearwater.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

With the total number of involuntary examinations more than doubling over the past 16 years, CCHR is on crusade to protect citizens from human rights abuse.

In order to take a person into custody under a Baker Act there are three criteria that must be legally met, yet it is common knowledge that this is not always done and this is a rights violation.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, January 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida chapter of the international mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), is concerned over the large number of individuals being sent annually for involuntary psychiatric examinations, called a Baker Act, in light of the fact that it is known a percentage of these Baker Acts are illegal due to a failure to meet the criteria to take a person into custody.

The Baker Act allows for a person of any age to be taken into custody and transported to a psychiatric receiving facility for examination and the most recent statistics released by the Baker Act Reporting Center, show that there were over 199,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations initiated in Florida during 2017 including over 32,000 children. [1]

In order to take a person into custody under a Baker Act there are three criteria that must be legally met yet, it is common knowledge that this is not always done and it was disclosed during a meeting of the Baker Act Task Force in 2017 that 30 percent of the Baker Acts initiated on children in Pinellas County did not meet the criteria. This alarming fact is one reason CCHR believes the Baker Act needs to be reformed so that parents and guardians are brought into the process before a child is put through the trauma of a Baker Act in an effort to reduce illegal Baker Acting of minors. [2]

“The Baker Act is being abused and is being used incorrectly on people of all ages,” stated Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “CCHR receives too many calls on a weekly basis from families whose loved one was illegally taken into custody and this abuse must end.”

In the example of minors, parents and legal guardians are being left out of the process only finding out that their child has been Baker Acted after initiation and usually after the child has been transported by law enforcement to a psychiatric facility. CCHR believes that this is a rights violation, a belief that is shared by Sheriffs, Police Chiefs and even School Districts across Florida.

Since 2017, CCHR has been working to educate those granted the power to initiate a Baker Act on a child on why a parent or guardian should be brought into the process before initiation resulting in county and city level policy changes to contact the parents of a child before initiating a Baker Act.

Those interested in learning more about CCHR’s campaign to protect children from abusive Baker Acting are encouraged to call 800-782-2878.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

The Gandhi Murder Shall not be released in India

When British release Indian campaigner Mohandas Gandhi from prison

The producers of The Gandhi Murder have decided against releasing the movie in India, citing security concerns.

I understand it is election year, but we are making a movie that represents the truth, without taking any sides. Give us a break.”

— Pankaj Sehgal – Director

NY, –, USA, January 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Our Co-Producer Ms. Lakshmi Iyer has been threatened, forcing her to change her residence twice in the last six months, a close tab is being maintained on the movements of the Co-Director Mr. Pankaj Sehgal, who has been receiving threats on his personal mobile, from callers with hidden ID. One of the main actors is not even answering interview requests,” says Dr. Moobi Alwright, a company senior executive based out of Dubai.

“It is shocking that without even seeing the movie, people have made their own assessment of whether it is pro or anti-incumbency, without the consideration that this is a privately produced film with the producers having no link with any political party”, says Sehgal, the co-director and one of the production managers of Nugen Media. “I understand it is election year, but we are making a movie that represents the truth, without taking any sides. Give us a break.”

Another member of the production team shifted his residence from Chennai to Mumbai, and is now in the process of leaving the country.

“It is not a question of standing up to what you believe in,” says Dr. Moobi. “It is a question of standing up to a ghost warfare, where you don’t really know who your enemy is, and what kind of threat it is. You want to release a strong content based on true events, and suddenly unchartered calls and threats follow. We are making a film on Mahatma Gandhi’s murder. We are not Mahatma Gandhi, who will stand up to these type of senseless attacks.”

Dr. Moobi further elaborated “From getting the censor clearance to safety and security of the Nugen Media team in India, it has simply been a nightmare, and we realize now it is simply not worth it. When India is mature enough for sensible films, the people will act like it. For now, they can enjoy the movie on digital network, as and when it becomes available”.

The Gandhi Murder’, starring Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri and Vinnie Jones, covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Mahatma Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.

Immigration Attorney Michael P. DiRaimondo to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michael P. DiRaimondo is more than just a successful lawyer with many years of experience—he is a passionate advocate who fights tenaciously to help his clients stay here in America. Mr. DiRaimondo is senior partner in the immigration law firm DiRaimondo and Masi, which has taken on cases other attorneys couldn’t resolve, taken cases to their fullest extent (Federal Appeals) and even won cases that change the law. In doing so, they don’t just make a difference for one person or family but impact the lives of tens of thousands of people.

Mr. DiRaimondo fist became interested in immigration law while a law student at Antioch University and an Intern in Washington DC. That was over 40 years ago. He later served as a Trial Attorney with the NY District Attorney’s Office from 1980 to 83, and then as a Special Assistant for the Eastern District of NY from 1984 to 86. This gave the keen lawyer a unique set of experiences and insights that help DiRaimondo know if a case might be denied and if there is a possibility of appeal. He also knows how to correctly prepare and present a case, what the prosecutor needs to hear, and just what documents and testimony the government will be looking for.

It’s not just DiRaimondo’s knowledge that draws in clients though–it’s his genuine concern for people, and a desire to protect families and keep them together. His ethics and empathy shine through, and he’s proud to have new citizens call him their life saving angel. He says, when you win a case or get someone asylum, you make a friend for life.

In his CUTV Radio shows, this exceptional attorney is going to teach us a lot about immigration—the facts, the laws, and the very valid reasons (like religion) that an immigrant can quality for asylum. He is also going to dispel many myths about immigrants—such as the number of registered/unregistered persons living in the United States, the countries of origin most immigrants come from, work visas and the many vital industries immigrants keep humming. We’ll also learn what an I-601 A Waiver is, the number of green cards that are obtained or lost each year, and about what the US Citizenship and Immigration Services Judges do. Listeners may discover the realities of immigration are vastly different from the things they read in media, or our current political administration puts forth! Mr. DiRaimondo is going to remind Americans that we are essentially all immigrants, that immigrants are really good and solid people, and that many immigrants pay taxes.

Catch Michael P. DiRaimondo’s two shows to learn more about immigration law and realities. We will also hear how the DiRaimondo and Masi law firm won cases (like that of Husam Husic formerly of Montenegro) and changed the law an astounding 6 or 7 times during a 5-year period!

CUTV News Radio will feature Attorney Michael P. DiRaimondo in interviews with Doug Llewelyn on Wednesday, January 23rd at 1:00pm EST and Wednesday, February 6th at 1:00pm EST

D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr Legacy Through Service

Cerritos College Students Puts Citizenship and Service in
Action

ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation today led students from Cerritos College EOPS Dynamics of Leadership Class in a service project that honors the legacy and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The students volunteered to assemble over 100 hygiene kits to benefit Ontario, California homeless and federal Ontario International Airport TSA workers furloughed due to the government shut down. Discussions about community service, community building, and community sustainability were led by D’Andre Lampkin and Cerritos College professor Henrietta Hurtado.

“I'm certainly too young to have ever witnessed firsthand Dr. King's passionate call for unity. But I think if he were still alive, he would be proud to see the nation has set aside a day where we focus on the needs of others and not ourselves,” said D’Andre Lampkin, Board Chair of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation. “I continue to draw inspiration from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s message to never judge people by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. encouraged the nation to focus on the broader concerns of humanity and recognize that together we can tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our communities. His legacy lives on.”

“Through community-based service learning activities, students have the opportunity to experience contextualized learning, develop critical thinking skills, and make connections with community leaders who serve as role models for career development opportunities in their own communities,” added Henrietta Hurtado, Professor, Cerritos College. “On behalf of the Cerritos college EOPS Dynamics of Leadership course, I would like to thank the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation for sponsoring the first Community Based Service Learning activity for the Spring 2019 semester. With their support, we also honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy on this National Day of Service.”

The MLK Day of Service shines a spotlight on service as a powerful force to bridge economic and social divides – today and throughout the year. Many communities will also engage in dialogue to explore ways they can address important issues. National Day of Service provides Americans with an opportunity to join neighbors and local leaders to tackle community challenges and strengthen the nation.

###
The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation
The mission of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is to create positive opportunities and change for individuals, communities, and environments. Our goal is to sponsor and create programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities and positively impact individuals wanting to lead happier and healthier lives. We have a vision for communities that are strong, fully engaged, and resilient; where all stakeholders are self-reliant and fully supported by sustainable ingenuity and grassroots efforts.

Cancellation of removal protects the LPR from forced Deportation/Removal, also keeping eligibility for underlying LPR status, notes Magdalena Cuprys

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

Cancellation of Removal for an LPR is a defense or relief from Removal – thereby sparing the Respondent the consequences of forced Removal/Deportation from the United States.”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In her most recent article, Magdalena Cuprys provides an overview of Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents.

Cancellation of Removal for an LPR (Lawful Permanent Resident) is a Discretionary Immigration Defense or form of Relief from Removal – thereby sparing the Respondent the consequences of forced Removal/Deportation from the United States, notes Ms. Cuprys. This form of relief is only available before a US Immigration Court after an Individual has been placed into Removal Proceedings after the Issuance of an NTA (Notice to Appear).

This form of relief not only protects the LPR (Green Card Holder) from forced Deportation/Removal, yet it also provides for eligibility to retain his/her underlying Lawful Permanent Residence status through this Application process; if found eligible by the Immigration Court.

In order to qualify for Cancellation of Removal and retain Lawful Permanent Residence status before a US Immigration Court, one must demonstrate that the individual as well as his US Citizen and LPR family members would endure extreme hardships as a result of the impending forced separation. Further, the Applicant/Foreign National must also prove the following as well as demonstrate numerous positive equities (examples listed below) which when taken in the aggregate warrant a favorable exercise of discretion by the Court:

1. Continuous Physical Presence:

You have been living continuously in the United States for at least 7 years after having been admitted in any status;

Please note that the date of Issuance of the NTA must be carefully examined, as such date officially ends one’s continuous physical presence date for Cancellation of Removal calculation purposes. Further, one must have qualified Immigration Counsel review the particular Criminal Offenses, as well as the exact dates of the offenses, which can also stop or terminate continuous presence in terms of Cancellation eligibility requirements. This is commonly known as the “Stop-Time” Rule.

2. Green Card Status:

You have been a Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder) for a minimum of 5 years prior to Application. The Stop-Time Rule is in most cases inapplicable to the Green Card status requirement, as the applicant may count time spent after issuance of the NTA or initiation of proceedings, etc. in order to calculate the 5 year LPR status requirement.

3. Extreme Hardships:

Removal from the USA would cause extreme hardship to the Applicant as well as to the US Citizen or LPR Qualifying Relatives of the Applicant. For example, evidence of a minor child’s medical condition, severity of illness, lack of available and suitable medical care in Applicant’s home country, etc. are strong examples of extreme hardships.

4. Family Ties in the United States

Length of Residence in the USA – which includes age of Applicant at entry to USA and documentation as to level of assimilation into American culture and society;

5. Good Moral Character:

You must demonstrate that you are a good person and possess good moral fiber. Gathering evidence to prove this is critical, and should not be undertaken nor submitted without assistance of Counsel.

6. No Major/Felony Criminal Violations:

Criminal violations in many cases can automatically disqualify the Applicant from eligibility to apply for Cancellation of Removal (i.e. Felony violations which in many cases are deemed Aggravated Felonies under US Immigration Law). Any Violations whatsoever, including all arrests, etc. must be carefully reviewed by Counsel.

7. In the event of a Criminal Conviction, evidence of Rehabilitation and Program Certifications;

8. Evidence and nature of Employment history and level of Education;

9. Property and Business Ties to the US community;

10. Evidence of Community Service (i.e. Volunteer work, charitable contributions, church/religious affiliations, etc.) in which one documents that the applicant is an asset and benefit to the US community at large);

11. Discretionary Relief:

This form of relief is Discretionary, which means it is NOT a right; it is a privilege. The Immigration Judge shall make an individual case determination (on a case by case basis) of whether or not to grant or approve you any such relief from Removal. You must be able to prove to the Court that you deserve this discretionary form of relief.

Cancellation of Removal for Non-LPR:

There also exists another defensive remedy before the US Immigration Court – known as Cancellation of Removal for a Non-LPR (for those who do not possess Green Card status). This should NOT be confused with the Cancellation of Removal standard discussed above which is exclusive to Lawful Permanent Residents. This form of relief from removal was previously discussed in depth in a prior issue of the Cuprys Law Instruction series which is available on-line.

Einstein and Gandhi

Gandhi (Left) and Albert Einstein – MEn who changed the world (7)

The Gandhi Murder – Official Poster

It is ironic that Mahatma Gandhi, the epitome of non-violence was ranked by time magazine as the runners up to its man of the 20th century (Albert Einstein).

‘The Gandhi Murder’ covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.”

— Nugen Media

DUBAI, –, UAE, January 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time. We should try to do things in his spirit, not to use violence in fighting for all cause, but in non-participation in anything you believe evil.”

This is how Einstein put across his utmost belief in Gandhi’s non-violent passive resistance, in an audio recording in 1950. (1)

In 1931, Albert Einstein wrote to Mohandas K. Gandhi (2) to express his great admiration for the Indian leader’s methods. Translated from German, the letter reads:
“I use the presence of your friend (Sundaram) in our home to send you these lines. You have shown through your works, that it is possible to succeed without violence even with those who have not discarded the method of violence. We may hope that your example will spread beyond the borders of your country, and will help to establish an international authority, respected by all, that will take decisions and replace war conflicts.” He added a note ‘I hope to be able to meet you face to face (2).

The two great men never met in person, despite an invitation extended by Mahatma Gandhi as a response to the above letter. Einstein himself digressed, and amidst the strong belief that the Germans were likely to develop the atom bomb, pushed USA for increased research on the enrichment of Uranium. (3)

Sometime in 1939, Einstein came across information that led him to believe the Germans would produce the bomb, and he signed a letter to President Roosevelt urging him to support the research of American physicists into the chain reaction.

Years later, Einstein came to deeply regret his letter to Roosevelt. "Had I known that the Germans would not succeed in producing an atomic bomb," he said "I would have never lifted a finger.” (4)

Einstein called his pacifism (6) an “instinctive feeling” based only on his “deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred,” rather than any “intellectual theory.”
When Gandhi was assassinated on 30th January, Einstein, along with other several other world leaders, felt it as a personal tragedy. On 11th February 1948, Einstein issued the following statement for the memorial service held in Washington. (5)

Everyone concerned with a better future for mankind must be deeply moved by the tragic death of Gandhi. He died a victim of his own principle, the principle of non-violence. He died because in a time of disorder and general unrest in his country, he refused any personal armed protection. It was his unshakable belief that the use of force is an evil in itself, to be shunned by those who strive for absolute peace.

By an ironic coincidence, Time magazine named Albert Einstein as its Man of the 20th century and Mahatma Gandhi as joint runner-up with Franklin D Roosevelt. Curiously, there remains a striking parallel between the constraints faced by the two outstanding personalities. (7)

‘The Gandhi Murder’, starring Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri and Vinnie Jones, covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Mahatma Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.

Licensed MFT and EMDR Clinician Dr. Irit Goldman to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Growing up in Israel, Irit Goldman knew she wanted to be a psychotherapist, and also wanted to focus on children. She never dreamt that a few years as a special education teacher, to help her align with counseling children who have special needs, would grow into a lengthy career. When Dr. Goldman retired after 37 years in education (13 of it in Israel), she finally had the time to focus on her other great passion: diagnosing and healing patients using a modality known as EMDR. Dr. Goldman is one of only three clinicians in her part of California certified in this bilateral brain stimulation technique, which helps people cope with trauma and avert PTSD. That is why she was requested to counsel responders to the raging wildfires this fall, and why she volunteered to be on the frontlines of a war in Israel a few years back.

In her radio show, Dr. Goldman is going to explain just what EMDR is, how it was discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, and how useful it can be to unlock the brain section that stores memories. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing, which is a mouthful to say, but not that hard to understand–especially when Dr. Goldman uses the analogy of the digestive system to explain how things get processed and eliminated by the human body (or when they get stuck and can’t be processed). By activating the two sides of the brain to work together, with eye movements similar to those in our REM sleep mode, people are able to process traumas—like being in a car accident, witnessing a crime, or suffering physical/sexual abuse—and to feel safe, confident and whole again.

EMDR is a complex process and Dr. Goldman knows it is not the counseling tool for everyone. She chooses what to use in her treatment sessions–which involve individuals, couples and groups—based on the patient and his/her distinct needs. Sometimes she will use traditional talk therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy, to help resolve patient problems. Those may include depression, stress management, phobias, anxiety, relationship issues, ADHD and grief.

Irit Goldman received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) in 2002 and then a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2004. She pursued training in EMDR in 2009 and frequently uses, or speaks about, this unique therapeutic modality. Listeners who want to know more about EMDR can watch a video up on Dr. Goldman’s website, or read the book The Body Keeps the Score (by Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk) that discusses how we store the memories of traumatic events inside.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Irit Goldman in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Friday, January 19th 2019, at 3:00pm EST.
