“SIR! NO SIR!” A 2005 FILM FESTIVAL AWARD WINNING FILM ON THE GI MOVEMENT AGAINST THE VIETNAM WAR IN BOTH THE US AND IN VIETNAM. A MUST SEE! DISCUSSION LEAD BY VETERAN AFTER THE MOVIE.

Why these events and why now?

The USG, through the Pentagon is having a 50-year Commemoration to rewrite the history of the Vietnam War era. (See http://www.vietnamwar50th.com/) .

There is a concerted effort to make the US government actions in the war honorable and to glorify war, which is a disservice to those who lost their lives in the war (both the Vietnamese and the US soldiers) and just as importantly, the lives that are being lost and will continue to be lost in current and future wars. Veterans for Peace at the national and local level are involved in this effort to set the record straight. See their website of Vietnam Full Disclosure- http://vietnamfulldisclosure.org/

Sponsored by Academic programs “Political Economy of Power in American Society,” “Caliban and the Witch,” “Culture and Violence,” the President’s Diversity Fund and the Olympia Rachel Corrie Chapter 109 of Veterans for Peace. All events are free and open to students and the community. Parking on campus is available for $2.
