Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
1924 Cedar (@ Bonita), Berkeley

This award-winning 42-minute video documentary focuses on some of the brave citizens who are defending our American heritage of First Amendment rights and civil liberties against government attempts to repress democracy and our freedom to dissent. It includes many of the surprising and creative ways Americans have found to express their views in dissent against the Bush administration's policy of war in Iraq.

Using events, theatre, song, dance, comedy, satire, music, poetry, interviews with many well-known personalities and the wisdom of our founding fathers, VOICES reminds us of our roots and the importance of protecting authentic democracy. It challenges anyone who would limit the freedoms and civil liberties granted in the Constitution and Bill of Rights as fundamentally un-American, even if they are our own leaders. It inspires viewers to speak out, vote and actively protect our heritage of democracy, before we lose it. Acclaimed local filmmaker Karil Daniels (415-821-0435; karil [at] karildaniels.com) will introduce her film and lead the discussion afterwards.
