The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, one of our partner organizations and a group that does great work correcting the record on communism, has two events coming up in the next few weeks that are definitely worth checking out. Both are in Washington, DC, so if you’re in the area, consider attending!

First, this Sunday, they’ll be holding a vigil for the victims of the Fidel Castro regime after his death on November 25th. You can find out more and RSVP to the Facebook event here. Here’s the full event description:

“The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation invites you to join us in commemorating the thousands of victims who suffered and died at the hands of the Castro regime in Cuba. A candlelight vigil will take place on December 4th, 2016 at 4:30 PM at the Victims of Communism Memorial on the corner of New Jersey and Massachusetts Avenues in Washington, DC.

We ask that you join us in standing with the Cuban people, remembering their past suffering, and hoping that this event marks the beginning of a truly democratic future for the island.”

Then, next week, you can attend the US premiere of “The Bleeding Edge” — a new film about censorship and organ farming in China at the E Street Cinema. The event will feature a screening of the film as well as a Q&A with Director Leon Lee and Miss World Canada Anastasia Lin. The screening takes place on Wednesday, December 14th at 6:30 pm and you can find more information on the Facebook event page.

VOC recommends that you reserve your ticket here in advance as tickets are expected to sell out due to extremely limited seating.

Back in 1997, the famous actor Charlton Heston called the Second Amendment “America’s first freedom.” The recent battle to defend this freedom is the subject of Shall Not Be Infringed, a book co-written by former president of the National Rifle Association David A. Keene and prominent attorney Thomas L. Mason. The authors paint a detailed but accessible picture of the history of gun control post-1990, focusing primarily on Congress, the Supreme Court, national media, and the United Nations.51w4KgDD8XL._SX333_BO1,204,203,200_

With endorsements from the editor of the Washington Times and the National Chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), Shall Not Be Infringed is a formidable tool in the hands of any American concerned with defending gun rights. Releasing the book shortly before November’s election, Keene and Mason predicted that if Hillary Clinton became president, Americans would “lose their individual right to keep and bear arms.” Although this has not come to pass, Second Amendment activists and the liberty movement in general should still read this book cover-to-cover. Gun control remains a priority for many politicians after decades of bitter debate, and you can be sure that this trend will continue long into the future.

Part One of the book concentrates on recent developments in the domestic gun control debate, beginning with an overview of the key players in the contemporary arena of gun politics. Of particular interest is the book’s discussion of the highly-publicized “Fast and Furious” scandal, which saw the U.S. government force gun shops near the Mexican border to allow Mexican criminals to buy guns without passing background checks.
