NETWORK


FEATURED VIDEOS:

International's historic global campaign on human rights
violations and issues in the USA.

Also showing that night:

* Food Not Bombs Videos - A 60 minute survey of various videos by and
about FNB (Food Not Bombs) that document the intense US government
persecution and repression of FNB's free food distribution and
peaceful protests which lead to 1,000 arrests of FNB activists
from 1988 to 1996. The case of FNB also resulted in an increased
international awareness of human rights violations in the USA and
started investigations into the FNB case by Amnesty International
and The United Nations Human Rights Commission.

International Workers' Solidarity Hits Home. "
