First Public Showing of

INSIDE PEACE FRESNO

Richmond Library, Madeline Whittelsey Community Room
325 Civic Center Plaza (corner 25th and Macdonald)

Oakland videographer Dan Mattson went to Fresno, California to capture the story of the
group of activists called Peace Fresno (who were featured briefly in the movie
\"Fahrenheit 911\"). This 48-minute documentary describes the infiltration of the group
by undercover police, but more than that, through the voices of the activists, it is an inspiration.

\"Four engaging, articulate, everyday people talk practically about how to build and sustain a local,
grassroots peace and social justice organization, even in a staunchly conservative part of the country.
I found their expression of ideas to be refreshingly down-to-earth and more than a little bit inspiring.\"

--Sarah Diamond, attorney



\"The video is wonderful. It could be used by small groups of people all around the country to inspire them
and show them the way to organize their own communities.\"

--Phyllis Luckman, MoveOn.org activist

\"Dan Mattson\'s video, Inside Peace Fresno gives an inspirational and straight-forward look into a peace
organization in a town that one of the interviewees refers to as \"anywhere USA\". They themselves exude
respect, courage, caring and commitment. It\'s great to see in the footage pictures of the diverse people
on the streets of Fresno with the many creative and strong anti-war and other signs mixed with the
American flags showing that, indeed say, \"peace is patriotic\"\".

--Sue Supriano: Steppin\' Out of Babylon - Radio Interviews suesupriano.com
