Sir! No Sir!
A Film About The GI Movement Against The War In Vietnam by David Zeiger
In the 1960's an anti-war movement emerged within the U.S. military spreading throughout the country and into the battlefields of Vietnam.Yet today few people know about the GI movement against the war in Vietnam.
Sir! No Sir! 1) Brings to life the history of the GI movement through the stories of those who were part of it; 2) Reveals the explosion of defiance that the movement gave birth to with never-before-seen archival material; 3) Explores the profound impact that movement had on the military and the war itself; and 4) The film also tells the story of how and why the GI Movement has been erased from the public memory.
As the Trump/Pence Regime threatens to expand and intensify already existing wars of U.S. domination and even threatens nuclear war, this powerful portrayal of the hidden story of U.S. soldiers in revolt against the war, the army, and in some cases the system itself is more urgent than ever.
