*Film Screening:* We Interrupt this Empire - 6:00pm - Great inspiration for

"We Interrupt This Empire..." is a collaborative work by many of the Bay
Area's independent video activists which documents the direct actions that
shut down the financial district of San Francisco in the weeks following
the United States' invasion of Iraq. With the audio backdrop including the
live broadcasts of SF Indymedia's Enemy Combatant Radio and the SFPD's
tactical communications that were picked up by police scanners, the
documentary takes a look at the diverse show of resistance from the streets
of San Francisco as well as providing a critique of the coporate media
coverage of the war and exploring such issues as the Military Industrial
Complex, attacks on civil liberties, and the United States' current Saturday
December 10th – 6pm  :: [MOVIE] We Interrupt this Empire

=============================
This film is a part of a series of community trainings in non-violent
direct action and facilitation and group process, strategy and action
planning. The films all feature different points in history where people
took to collective action in response to injustice. More information
