“Sir! No Sir!” Screening

September 21, 2006 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

David Zeiger’s new film Sir! No Sir! (2005) focuses on a forgotten 1960’s anti-war movement that altered the course of history. This movement didn’t take place on college campuses, but in barracks and on aircraft carriers. It flourished in army stockades, navy brigs and in the dingy towns that surround military bases. It penetrated elite military colleges like West Point, and it spread through the battlefields of Vietnam. It was a movement no one expected, least of all those in it. Hundreds went into hiding and thousands into exile. By 1971 it had, in the words of one colonel, infested the entire armed services. Yet today, few people know about the GI movement against the war in Vietnam. Followed by a candlelight vigil in observance of International Peace Day.

Presented with Bethlehem Neighbors For Peace and Women Against War.
