War and Peace, Nuclear Issues

Rosalie Riegle: Putting it All on the Line for Peace
Riegle, a peace activist and historian, shares stories from her interviews with activists who speak out against war. They gave her the inside view on why they wanted to be activists-- and why they felt so strongly they were willing to go to prison to get their point across. It was not an easy thing to do, but, as Riegle says, it is doable. In this clip she talks about a young man who provided support for a demonstration against a nuclear facility.

Oregonians Expose U.S. Drone Strikes in Pakistan
This clip is from a talk given by four Oregonians who traveled to Pakistan in 2012 to expose the harm being done by US drone warfare. The first person is Trudy Cooper from Portland Code Pink describing work being done by a man in Pakistan trying to document the civilian casualties, which the US government refuses to admit ever happen.

Then Leah Bolger with Veterans for Peace in Corvallis talks a bit about the way drone strikes violate due process as one example of how they violate international law. The whole idea of using these remote controlled aircraft, operated from bases in the United States, to drop bombs on people in other countries is horrifying enough, but hearing accounts of what the people on the other end of those bombs think is important too.

The full one hour program "Oregonians Expose U.S. Drone Strikes in Pakistan" (VB #86.02&03) is available for a donation of $11 (DVD/VHS) plus $4 postage.
