"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 [11]article about Flying Focus' first
    incarnation and clips from the opening credits of our first series).

    More information on the history documents and the event can be found
    at: http://pjw.info/gw25yl.html.

    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.
