There are three events involving local activist / Viet Nam Veteran S.
Brian Willson coming up in the next few weeks. The third one is being
organized by the PJW Iraq Affinity Group (and you will get reminders about
it), on Sunday July 10 following the PJW quarterly meeting.
The first is the premiere of a movie about Brian coming up a week from
this Sunday (July 3) at the Clinton St. Theatre; the next day (July 4)
there's a fundraiser for the Veterans for Peace doubling as a 75th
birthday party for Brian, and then there's our event on the 10th, focusing
on his recent trip to Viet Nam.
Spread the word!

KBOO FM Radio Invites You to the Premiere Screening of:
PAYING THE PRICE FOR PEACE:
The Story of S. Brian Willson
~ Produced & Directed by Bo Boudart
~ Narrated by Peter Coyote
~ Associate Producer Frank Dorrel
SUNDAY, JULY 3 ~ 7:00 PM at
The Clinton Street Theater

Tickets $10 at The Door!
Brian Willson, Bo Boudart & Frank Dorrel will all be present at this
Special Premiere Screening and participate in a Q&A after the film.
Vietnam veteran S. Brian Willson paid the price for peace as he was run
over and nearly killed by a military train during a non-violent protest in
1987. Since then, he has not stopped calling attention to the US
government's defiance of international law through waging endless illegal
wars. PAYING THE PRICE FOR PEACE exposes the truth about the United
States' addiction to war and the lies it perpetuates in order to wage
ongoing violence. The film features the voices of other high-profile
antiwar activists, including many military veterans.
