Peace Sites and Organizations
Think war sucks? Be informed.
It’s not my intention to be a clearinghouse for antiwar or peace orgs. However, here are a few links to some good ones that come to mind:
- National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth — Just what it says, with kits to help you participate, if you want.
- World Beyond War — The brilliant author and speaker David Swanson and friends imagine a world without war, and show you what you can do to that end.
- Veterans for Peace — Veterans organization, largely but not entirely Vietnam era.
- The Peace Report — Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran Will Griffin, with interviews and cogent videos that are educational and compelling.
- About Face: Veterans Against the War — “Post-9/11 service members and veterans organizing to end a foreign policy of permanent war and the use of military weapons, tactics, and values in communities across the country.”

Some people are using the audio for radio and podcasts. Use the video however you wish.
Screenings and Distribution
Any or all of these films may be screened or repackaged for profit. I would hope that you would let me know of such screenings or distributions, so that I may announce them on our Facebook page and here on the website, but it is not mandatory.
If you wish to charge for screenings, you do not need to pass on any money to me. The films are not copyrighted.They are Creative Commons with Attribution, which basically means just don’t say you created them. (Actually, it says you have to say that I did do them, which would be appreciated, but that’s also kind of covered because it says that in the credits.)
Gonna Be a Soldier has subtitles available in 12 languages. The other films have subtitles in 5 languages: Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian, and Chinese (simplified). Currently, the subtitles are only on the YouTube videos, but as soon as I get requests, I will make the subtitles available for the download versions as well.
