We Interrupt This Empire... is a collaborative documentary about the shutting down of SF when the war began in March 2003. Thursday, November 20, 12:30pm - 1:30pm FREE Admission What happens when a trigger-happy cowboy with a pocket full of loot aims his guns on an oil-rich, people-poor nation? We Interrupt This Empire... is a powerful look into the direct actions that shut down the financial district of San Francisco on the day after the United States invaded Iraq. With audio backdrop including the live radio broadcasts from the Independent Media Center to SFPD's tactical communications that were picked up on police scanners, the documentary reveals a diverse show of resistance from the streets of San Francisco as well as providing a critique of the corporate media coverage of the war and exploring such issues as the Military Industrial Complex, attack on civil liberties, and the United States' current imperialist drive. http://www.videoactivism.org
