  Im Sameer from Damascus. Life in Syria’s capital
  4/18/2016 RT Documentary: I’m Sameer from Damascus. Life in Syria’s capital through the lens of a local cameraman - War has been raging in Syria for five years, causing millions to leave the country. This is the story of some who’ve stayed. When the bloody conflict began, many Syrians had to put their lives on hold until the situation stabilised. But even after five years, there’s still no end in sight to the devastating war. Many civilians have lost their homes, their possessions and even loved ones. In an attempt to preserve at least some semblance of normality in their lives, people have learnt to live in the violently conflicted state. Just as in times of peace, they go to the market, meet in cafes, work, marry and organise big weddings. In Damascus, there’s been less devastation than in many other big Syrian cities, and so the capital welcomed many internally displaced refugees, but even here, no one is truly safe. Shells explode and kill indiscriminately, destroying roads, cars, buildings and killing anyone who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sameer Alfarra is a cameraman for a Syrian TV Channel. He came to Damascus from Aleppo, fleeing the fighting and leaving his house and businesses behind. As the war progressed, he saw the strength of character in the ordinary Syrians who chose to remain in their home country. After filming people’s stories every day, visiting new sites of destruction and losing colleagues as war casualties, he knows better than anyone, what it takes for Syrian people to carry on with their lives, every day. Through his camera lens, he wants to show us the toll war has taken on the Syrian people as well as their unbroken spirit and how, through all the hardships and grief, they still manage to preserve love and hope for a peaceful future.

  My Name Is Rachel Corrie
  2/26/2011 DatetLine: Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 10, 1979 -- March 16, 2003) was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). She was crushed to death in the Gaza Strip by an Israel Defence Forces (IDF) bulldozer when she was kneeling in front of a local Palestinian's home, thus acting as a human shield, attempting to prevent IDF forces from demolishing the home. The IDF stated that the death was due to the restricted angle of view of the IDF Caterpillar D9 bulldozer driver, while ISM eyewitnesses said "there was nothing to obscure the driver's view." A student at the Evergreen State College, she had taken a year off and traveled to the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada.

  3/19: Ukrainian TV Chief assaulted and forced to resign byUS-Backed far-right Nazi Svoboda MPs
  The head of Ukraine’s state TV company has been attacked by at least three MPs from the far-right Svoboda party and forced to resign. Members of Svoboda barged their way into the offices of Aleksandr Panteleymonov, the acting president of the National Television Company of Ukraine on Tuesday night. They were angry that public broadcaster, First National Channel, had broadcast the Russian Parliament signing a treaty with Crimea on Tuesday. Yelling and beating Panteleymonov around the head, the men accused him of serving Putin, while there were Ukrainians “dying at the hands of Russian occupiers” and called him “Moscow trash.” They then forced him to sign a letter of resignation. Ironically, one of the men involved in the assault was the deputy head of Ukraine’s committee on freedom of speech. Members of the Svoboda party filmed the attack and then posted it online.(euronews)

  We Interrupt This Empire...
  The San Francisco Video Activist Network presents the story you won't see on Fox News: an eye-popping, jaw-dropping look at the Bay Area's radical resistance to an illegal war. "We Interrupt This Empire..." is a collaborative work by many of the Bay Area's independent video activists which documents the direct actions that shut down the financial district of San Francisco in the weeks following the United States' invasion of Iraq. With the audio backdrop including the live broadcasts of Enemy Combatant Radio from the SF Independent Media Center to SFPD's tactical communications that were picked up by police scanners, the documentary takes a look at the diverse show of resistance from the streets of San Francisco as well as providing a critique of the corporate media coverage of the war and exploring such issues as the Military Industrial Complex, attacks on civil liberties, and the United States' imperialist drive. MPEG2 version (1.9GB): http://archive.org/details/we_interrupt_this_empire "This a a clear picture of what's left of an American conscience in the midst of this national horror-show--this is the best damn doc I've seen on the local face of what might have been the largest anti-war movement in world history. " Craig Baldwin of Other Cinema Winner - Best of the Bay - San Francisco Bay Guardian, July 2004 The Video Activist Network is an informal association of activists and politically conscious artists using video to support social, economic and environmental justice campaigns. Also available from the Video Activist Network: Shutdown Downtown Fogtown, a daring collection of on-the-scene videos from the historic anti-war protests that shutdown San Francisco. The "Shutdown..." compilation mostly consists of the videos that screened at the outdoor screenings at Dolores Park during the first two weeks of the war.

  US Peace Activists Join Anti-Drone March in Pakistan(2012-10-08)
  DemocracyNow.org - Thousands of people marched in Pakistan over the weekend to protest the ongoing U.S. drone strikes. On Sunday, the Pakistani government blocked the march from entering the tribal area of South Waziristan, a frequent target of drone attacks. Addressing the march, Pakistani political leader Imran Khan said the drone strikes are fostering hatred of the United States. Imran Khan says: "These drone attacks are a violation of international law. These drone attacks are a violation of the human rights of Pakistani people. Do we all condemn them? We want to send a message to America the the more drones attacks you carry out, the more the people will grow to hate you and raise their arms against you. Our tribal people will not be scared off with drone attacks." More than 30 U.S. citizens with the group CODEPINK traveled to Pakistan to take part in the march and meet with drone strike victims. Activist Tighe Barry says: "The illegal, immoral, brutal attacks on the innocent people of Waziristan in the FATA region of Pakistan must end now. These are illegal drone strikes carried out by CIA. CIA is a civilian organization using military equipment. This is a war crime." Activist Linda Wenning: "They (drone attacks) are illegal, they're against international law. They invade the sovereignty of Pakistan, and they're not productive." In a U.S. protest held in solidarity with the anti-drone march in Pakistan, 10 people were arrested on Friday at the Hancock Field Air National Guard Base in New York. Members of the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars stood in front of the base's gate, holding signs and blocking entry. Shortly before he was arrested, protester Jack Gilroy said demonstrators hoped to hold up the piloting of the drones that takes place at the base, perhaps sparing the lives of civilians overseas.

  Violent response to Bahrain protest
  Al-Jazeera [WARNING: This video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing] Troops and tanks have locked down the Bahraini capital of Manama after riot police swinging clubs and firing tear gas smashed into demonstrators in a pre-dawn assault, killing at least four people. Hours after the attack on Manama's main Pearl Roundabout, the military announced a ban on gatherings, saying on state TV that it had "key parts" of the capital under its control. Khalid Al Khalifa, Bahrain's foreign minister, justified the crackdown as necessary because the demonstrators were "polarising the country" and pushing it to the "brink of the sectarian abyss". Speaking to reporters after meeting with his Gulf counterparts, he also said the violence was "regrettable". Two people had died in police firing on the protesters prior to Thursday's deadly police raid. An Al Jazeera correspondent, who cannot be named for security reasons, went to Salmaniya hospital, which was thrown into chaos by a stream of wounded protesters from Pearl Roundabout.
