Up Rise Up: February 15th, 2003 NYC United For Peace and Justice
On February 15th
over 500,000 people attended a rally in New York City against the
Bush Administration's drive toward war against Iraq. Organized by
United For Peace and Justice this event was part of a worldwide
effort, as tens of millions of people on every continent stood together
to say no to war. Because the NYC Police Department made it difficult
to get to the protest, most people could not see or hear the incredible
range of speakers and performers. Produced by The Empowerment Project
this video is a video record of the stage speakers and performers,
including notables Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Harry Belafonte, Susan
Sarandon, Angela Davis, Holly Near, Pete Seeger, and Richie Havens.
Also featured are spokespersons Leslie Cagan, Julian Bond, Medea
Benjamin, Reverend Graylan Hagler, and Miles Solay. Now you can
see the entire program from that historic day and retain it as an
archive. Funds from the sale of the video will go to continue empowerment
projects, peace and justice work and a donation will be made to
United for Peace and Justice for every order placed.
