Amnesty Edmonton and Metro Cinema presents Citizenfour
Sat, Feb 21 7:15 pm – 9:15 pm

“Know that every border you cross, every purchase you make, every call you dial, every cell phone tower you pass, friend you keep, site you visit, and subject line you type, is in the hands of a system whose reach is unlimited, but whose safeguards are not.”The Amnesty International Edmonton chapter invites you to a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Citizenfour about Edward Snowden and the NSA leaks that showed the world the extent of US government and global surveillance, and its implications for privacy and freedom. The film was recently nominated for a 2015 Academy Award for Best Documentary, and this screening will be the night before the Oscars.From the film’s website:”Citizenfour is a real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, giving audiences unprecedented access to filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA).Poitras had already been working on a film about surveillance for two years when Snowden contacted her, using the name “Citizenfour,” in January 2013. He reached out to her because he knew she had long been a target of government surveillance, stopped at airports numerous times, and had refused to be intimidated. When Snowden revealed he was a high-level analyst driven to expose the massive surveillance of Americans by the NSA, Poitras persuaded him to let her film.Citizenfour not only shows you the dangers of governmental surveillance—it makes you feel them. After seeing the film, you will never think the same way about your phone, email, credit card, web browser, or profile, ever again.”Join us in the lobby before and after the film, where we will have a table set up with letters to sign for political prisoners worldwide who have been jailed for exercising their rights to freedom of speech and expression, as well as more information about Amnesty if you’re interested in what we do. Please invite your friends and come say hi at the table!Critical praise (97% on Rotten Tomatoes):”The stuff of Orwellian nightmares…it plays like the greatest paranoid thriller since ‘All The President’s Men’.” – Indiewire”If you think Snowden is a traitor, you should probably see it. If you think he’s a hero, you should probably see it.

Arduino for Creators
Today 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

You are interested or already involved in the maker movement, and have some great ideas that needs the brains of a little computer, but you haven’t taken that first step to get started. Arduino is a microcontroller that is a great entry-level device that can be used from very simple to very complex projects. It has a broad community with lots of easily accessible resources, to help jump-start any project you might have in mind. It also comes in a wide variety of formats, from a simple boards that are set up for easy prototyping, to smaller professional boards for integrating in your cool devices, or for adding electronics to clothing. Join us for a four hour Arduino for Creators workshop to learn the basics on using Arduinos, learn what they are capable of, and become inspired for your next great project. In this workshop, you will gain hands-on experience with your very own Arduino starter kit, that you take home with you after the workshop. We will work together to get the Arduino software set up on your laptop, and work on some simple projects to get you started in the world of prototyping and programming electronics. Make LEDs blink! Make speakers play sounds! All without electrocuting yourself or destroying your electronics. We will also talk about what Arduinos can do, and what you can aspire to.The cost of the course covers the cost of the Arduino kit that you keep, and it includes all the cables, wires, and electronic components you need for the course. You only need to bring your laptop (required).This workshop is hosted by Neil Lamoureux, VP Engineering at CodeBaby and meetup host of the Open Hardware Meetup. This course is limited to 12 people, so sign up soon!

Regency Ball (Midwinter Holdover)
Today 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

This event is now sold out, but PLEASE add yourself to the wait list. There are bound to be cancellations and if we have enough interest, we may move into the larger Empire Ballroom, which would be magnificent. Also, there is still room in the dance classes, which are a MUST for anyone who wants to dance at the ball, and are a great deal of fun in their own right. Even if you can’t make the ball, I highly recommend them. Also, there is now a dinner option for ball guests. There will be a vegetarian option. I am just waiting to hear from the chef as to what it will be.By popolar demand, this is a holdover of the Regency Michaelmas Ball held in September, 2014. Guests can enjoy live music, English country dancing and other period diversion, and all in Regency costume. There are a limited number of tickets for a supper also, which will be small but delectable, so as not to inhibit the dancing. Dance lessons will take place the evenings of February 8, 15 and 22. Some video tutorials on putting together your own costume will be posted at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIn1Mil6l-w4f3pPD9wm6WA
