Grassroots screenings of Rethink Afghanistan sweep the country!

Posted by Emily Taylor on November 17th, 2009

As the debate in the White House about Afghanistan heats up, the activists of the United States have stepped up too! Thousands of screenings have taken place from Hawaii to South Carolina, to Alaska to Arkansas. These activists have collected thousands of signatures and debated the issue for months with experts, local veterans, and grassroots fervor. I’d like to highlight a recent screening hosted by Betty Cooper of Jefferson City, MO.

“The showing of Rethink Afghanistan, November 11, 2009, Jefferson City, MO created a sense of unity and oneness within the group of eighteen participants. After our speaker, Mark Haim, director of Mid-MO Peace Works, provided additional ideas about this problematic situation, the questions and discussion became “lively” and invigorating creating a stage for activism. The petitions to “end the war” were eagerly signed and many decided to call the White House the next day and speak for “ending the war not escalating the troop level.” One person decided to continue showing the DVD to others. This was a “rethinking process” that will continue to be on-going. We want to thank Robert Greenwald, the participants, the film and the entire staff at Brave New Foundation.”
