Santa Cruz Event Poster
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT BRIAN WILL BE SPEAKING AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS FIRST, SO COME ON TIME!!!  HE NEEDS TO CATCH A TRAIN BACK TO PORTLAND LATER IN THE EVENING, SO HE WILL JOIN US AT THE BEGINNING, AND THE FILM SHOWING WILL THEN FOLLOW HIS REMARKS!

The film runs an hour and a half, and will be followed by a
Q and A with Bo Boudart, the producer.

 

Many activists in Santa Cruz share part of the history shown in this inspired film – the struggle against the wars in Central America in the 1980’s, the actions at the Concord Naval Weapons Station and the attack on Brian there by a moving freight train that took his legs, the many actions to stop the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and much more.  We share as well many of the up to the moment struggles that the film illuminates, and the many leaders sharing the path with Brian, like Medea Benjamin and David Swanson. 
 
Brian, with his partner Becky Luening, made Santa Cruz home for a number of years,  where Brian was a member of the Bill Motto VFW Post 5888 (“the Post for Peace”), and directed a group called the Veteran’s Peace Action Teams (V-PAT) that sent teams of vets to Central America to rebuild communities torn apart by the American funded wars there.
 
After losing his lower legs at Concord, and suffering a major brain injury, Brian has recovered to live a luminary and inspiring life, continuing his work for peace, justice, and locally based, petroleum free economies around the globe!  
Brian will speak and answer questions first, along with the producer Bo Boudart. Then the film will be shown, which runs about an hour and a half.
If time permits, there will be more Q and A with the producer Bo Boudart after the film.
