"25 Years Working for Peace in Iraq" next week on the Video Bus

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 we noted earlier this month* 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.

screen. Also, our Wednesday show is carried on the High Definition channel
