SHOCKING AND AWFUL: 4 - 6
A GRASS ROOTS RESPONSE TO WAR IN IRAQ
“Shocking and awful” is the way many people view the current situation in Iraq and the United States. The war continues to take its toll on Iraqi civilians, international aid workers, journalists and U.S. troops. Here at home we are seeing how waging a “perpetual war” is affecting our own lives as well.
Deep Dish TV has collected and produced thirteen programs about the war and the occupation, which are being distributed to communities all over the United States on Free Speech TV and on community access channels. These programs address the implications and consequences of this country’s recent military actions. The series also shows how people are mobilizing through art, actions, and international law.
SHOCKING AND AWFUL was produced by independent video activists who do not buy into the lies, who are not cowed by the threats, who believe that building a just world is the way to combat terror. They are speaking out and organizing to counter the waves of propaganda and deceit that continue to dominate the mainstream airwaves.
