MUST SEE MOVIE...THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND !

60's Anti-War Group Documentary Provides Meaningful Insight For Today
There is an important movie now showing in Portland this week called "The Weather Underground". I have seen it twice already as I believe it gives some perspective on the current anti-war/pro-peace movements taking place in the United States of America. This movie chronicles the key members of the Weather Underground from recent interviews as they flashback to actual footage of the events that took place during the upheaval in America during the Vietnam War period. The interviews are amazing and as a peace activist myself, I felt I understood where these activists were coming from and I wanted to learn from so that my activism work can be seen as positive & inviting and that I put my activism in proper perspective. SEE THIS MOVIE !!!!
