The "War, Occupation, and the Arts of Resistance" film series will close with the films "Globalization at Gunpoint", "Resistance at Home", and "Channels of War".

"Globalization at Gunpoint": The Economics of Occupation: The military occupation of Iraq has enabled the U.S. to enforce privatization of the Iraqi economy -- in effect, selling off Iraq’s assets to foreign investors. The program also looks at the challenges to privatization.

"Resistance at Home": Millions of Americans have said “NO!” to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the larger Bush agenda of clampdowns on free speech, increased spying on citizens and the elimination of civil liberties.

"Channels of War": The Media is the Military: The mainstream television networks have fanned the flames of war, and have profited from doing so. This program looks at how the corporate media has sanitized Americans’ field of vision.

The films are part of Deep Dish TV's 12-part series entitled Shocking and Awful: The Grassroots Response to War and Occupation. The series addresses the implications and consequences of the U.S.'s military actions in Iraq. The series also shows how people are mobilizing through art, actions, and international law. Each film is 30 minutes.

The films will be followed by a discussion.
