Rear Left

GI Resistance was a key factor in ending the Vietnam War. Following in that tradition, and under the mentorship of many of the surviving Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Iraq Veterans Against the War struggle for an end to the US occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, reparations for the invaded countries, and health and social services for veterans.

During Obama’s presidential inauguration they ran this excellent TV spot on NBC in 10 major US cities:

Interesting strategic call to focus on Iraq and not on what is set to become Obama’s quagmire in Afghanistan. Very appropriate to the context of the ad’s historic placement and the potential for engaging audiences in pushing the new administration towards significant change.

Baked Goods and The Flobots should be applauded for contributing the 3D graphics and music respectively.
