Films that Fuel Movements in 9 Minutes or Less

Amy Wolf | In “Rapping at Fear,” 13-year-old Andrés Tabares tells the story of his family being forced by militias to move off of their farm in rural Columbia to Bogotá. Using animation, rap and a rap-video format, Tabares, who has adapted exceedingly well to city life, shares his acute observations that “here everything comes in bags,” and “if you have money, you buy stuff, if you don’t, you can’t.” The bright colors and simple figures were a powerful and bizarre treatment of a child’s memory of terror. The film was co-produced by youth media network Listen Up!, a group that connects youth producers with opportunities and support internationally. more...  0 Comments

Smashing 'The Face' of the Anti-War Movement: The Paradox of Cindy Sheehan

Chris Anderson | "This is my resignation letter as the 'face' of the American anti-war movement.

"Carly, this is her last quarter at university, and she’ll be graduating. You know, I want to be there for her to help her through this. She’s majoring in history. I majored in history."

Sheehan 'Resigns' as War Protest Leader

cypher | However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the "left" started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used. I guess no one paid attention to me when I said that the issue of peace and people dying for no reason is not a matter of "right or left", but "right and wrong." more...  1 Comments

Woman Assaulted at West Point Protest

Kathy Devlin | West Point anti-war protest became interesting when a small group of Pro-War Pro Busher’s tried with microphones and insults to drown out the voices that spoke truth to power.

The police would not allow my husband or son to come to my defense. I have been going to protests my whole life and never saw a more vicious bunch of animals then those counter protesters today." more...  24 Comments

Democrats Sell-Out Over Iraq is Now Complete

Barry Grey | The Democratic congressional leadership on Tuesday formally accepted a supplemental war-funding bill that abandons any timelines for withdrawing US troops from Iraq. The bill further gives President Bush the power to waive economic penalties should the Iraqi government fail to meet a series of “benchmarks” for stabilizing the country and opening up its oil resources to exploitation by American oil conglomerates.

The agreement is a full and abject capitulation by the Democratic Party to the Bush administration. It is the inevitable and predictable outcome of months of antiwar posturing by Democratic leaders. more...  6 Comments
