7:30 PM, CMU Porter Hall 100
The Pittsburgh Independent Media Center announces a preview screening of
"The People, United: A Pittsburgh Anti War Retrospective," a documentary
about the anti-war convergence that brought 5,000 people to Pittsburgh
to protest the impending Iraq War in January of 2003.
With assistance from the Cleveland Independent Media Center and Carnegie
Mellon University, and footage compiled by hundreds of IMC volunteers
across the world, the documentary offers a look at the anti-war movement
that is unavailable anywhere else. The documentary also features a
soundtrack that includes music by local punk musicians Anti-Flag.
The screening will be accompanied by other local anti-war footage, and
is free and open to the public. A $3 donation is requested and
pre-orders for a VHS or DVD copy of the documentary will be taken.
The screening, co-sponsored by the Carnegie Mellon Progressive Student
Alliance, will take place in the university's Porter Hall 100 at 7:30 PM
on Saturday, January 24th -- the one-year anniversary of the protests.
(Porter Hall is located near flagstaff hill in Schenley Park. Parking
is available on Frew Street.)
