In honor of the soldiers and veterans who will be part of the demonstrations at the NATO Summit in Chicago–from May 19, Armed Forces/Armed Farces Day, through the Memorial Day weekend, you can watch FOR FREE three powerful films about GI and veterans’ resistance to criminal wars:
Sir! No Sir! – The landmark 2006 film by David Zeiger that revealed the suppressed story of the GI Movement to end the Vietnam War, a movement that shook the military and government to its core and played a major role in ending the war. Sir! No Sir! has been distributed for free to thousands of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, helping to inspire the birth of Iraq Veterans Against the War.
This is Where We Take Our Stand – Last year’s film by David Zeiger, Bestor Cram, and Mike Majoros, that told the story of the hundreds of soldiers and veterans who risked everything to reveal the true nature of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations by testifying at 2008′s Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan hearings.

The films will be available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/user/DisplacedFilms/featured starting at 9 am on Saturday, May 19, and ending Tuesday, May 29, at 9 am.
