ANA AMRIKIYAA WA ANA AASIFA: I'm an American, and I'm sorry: Laurel Severns (AFSC, Chicago) traveled in Iraq in late June 2001 with Voices in the Wilderness. The film’s title is taken from the response of American activists when observing the remains of a soccer field where days before an American or British “smart bomb” killed 22 children and wounded a dozen more: I’m an American and I’m sorry. Severns’ commentary offers a much-needed primer for opposition to further genocide in Iraq. www.grassrootsvoices.org/contact.html
Just completed: A glossy, accessible booklet about anarchism, designed for non-anarchists, called Fighting For Our Lives. In simple (but not condescending) language, it explains what is anarchist in everyday life, and how those spheres of cooperation can be expanded. It addresses common questions that often deter people from exploring anarchist ideas and approaches. We have 250,000 copies that we want to give away.
