It took a long while, but a few individuals finally were able to 
supplement the money PJW (the Iraq Affinity Group) was able to pledge 
toward getting our Sept 2014 forum "US Foreign Policy: The Wars Continue" 
on line as a video.

It was an excellent panel that covered, well, US Wars, Climate Change & 
the Economy.

Anyway, below is the email from Flying Focus Video (the other group I'm 
in) with details on how to view all or part of the forum.

If you want to help us put on more such informative work in the future, 
please consider sending a donation our way!

A few individuals plus the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group pitched 
in to secure streaming rights for our show from March 2015 covering a panel 
discussion on "US Wars, Climate Change & the Economy." A description including 
links to specific points in the video divided by subject matter is below. You 
can view the two half-hour videos at
or on our site at
  http://www.flyingfocus.org/WarClimateEconstreamingpg.html .

We're getting more of our shows up on line these days-- if you see a show you

Here's info on the new upload:

    On September 23, 2014, the same day the US attacked Syria, speakers at
    Portland's Multnomah Friends Meeting House addressed the ongoing US
    wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, relating them to environmental and
    economic justice issues. The event is captured in the two-part episode
    "US Wars, Climate Change & the Economy." In part 1, Jenka Soderberg of
    KBOO-FM News connects the wars and climate change, and notes the
    importance of movement building. Amin Wahab, an Afghan American who had
    spent 13 months working on water projects in his native country, talks
    about the US presence. Ian (Ary) LaVallee, an Iraq War Veteran, relates
    personal experiences and encourages people to get involved. Maya Rotem,
    an Israeli-American Jew, speaks about American support for Israel's
    occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.

    Part 2 includes Robin Hahnel, a former economics professor at Portland
    State University, talking about the connection between the economy and
    empire. And Lenny Dee, founder of 350 Oregon, talks about how changing
    habits around energy consumption could end the policies driving the US
    wars. Then all the panelists respond to audience questions. The event
    was taped by Allen Evans and produced by Dan Handelman. Streaming made
    possible in part by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group
