    The "Twelfth Busiversary" features clips from 25 programs produced since December 2002. A number of shows revolved around the impending and actual war on Iraq, several on civil rights issues, one on the environment, and a "guest" video from Amnesty International on Guatemala. A new section of our catalog entitled "Organizing for Change" was created after we presented three Oregon Peace Institute workshops on the Video Bus on group organization and dynamics. Finishing up the program is FFVC producer Yvonne Simmons who introduces a short tribute to her canine companion, Mischief, the Peace Dog, who died in April 2003.
