Sunday, July 1st, 6 p.m. Sir! No Sir! The Suppressed Story of the GI Movement to End the War in Vietnam by David Zeiger. America's soldiers and veterans are used to justify every conceivable crime and atrocity being carried out by the "troops," i.e., the U.S. military. U.S. troops beheaded bodies of the Vietnamese they killed in 1967. The U.S. slaughtered 3 million people, including massacres of whole villages. They were not heroes, but murderers and baby killers. There is no honor in being a soldier in the U.S. military that has invaded every corner of the world and nearly every country on the planet.

This film brings to life the history of the GI movement through the stories of those who were part of it, reveals the explosion of defiance that the movement gave birth to with never-before-seen archival material, explores the profound impact that movement had on the military and the war itself, and tells the story of how and why the GI Movement has been erased from the public memory.
