Like what you see?
"25 Years Working for Peace in Iraq"January 16, 2016 marked exactly 25 years since the start of the "Gulf War," when the US launched its first of three wars on the country of Iraq. On Friday Jan. 15, about 25 people attended the Portland Peaceful Response Coalition Friday rally to remember the bombing and call for peace. The only media coverage of this event was by Flying Focus Video Collective. Significantly, Flying Focus got its start by creating videos during that war as part of the Coalition Against US Military Intervention in the Middle East.
This program includes interviews with numerous people at the rally including key organizer (and FFVC producer) Dan Handelman of the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group, a member of CAUMSIME's steering committee (that group dissolved in 1992), and various folks attending. The opening segment includes images from the course of the 25 years of protests against the ongoing US policies doing damage to Iraq (including an image of the article about Flying Focus' first incarnation and clips from the opening credits of our first series).

This show was co-produced by Barb Greene and Dan, with the coverage at the rally by field coordinator PC Peri and John Pacheco. Streaming made possible by an individual donor.
