Soldiers Speak Out

Posted by Fredsvenn den januar 9, 2008

Soldiers Speak Out is a powerful, first-hand testament to the reality of the military experience told entirely in the words of American veterans who have been to war and are now opposing it. We hear how they came to join the military, about their experiences in training and in war, and what led to the turning point when they decided they could no longer, in good conscience, participate in the war or keep silent. This half-hour documentary sheds light on the growing and courageous anti-war and anti-occupation movement within the military and their families, and serves as a counter-recruitment and organizing tool for activists, schools and organizations. It provides a sober view of the war in Iraq and an important counterpoint to the ‘stay-the-course’ rhetoric of the Bush administration.

«This DVD needs to be seen by every high school student in the country. It’s short enough to show in a class. It effectively counters the disinformation recruiters routinely tell young people about enlisting.»
–Donnely/Colt Progressive Resources Catalog
«…This is truly the film I have been waiting for–a film I want to be able to hand to everyone sporting a magnetic car ribbon proclaiming «Support Our Troops.» Covered are the military’s access to the personal records of every child enrolled in public school which are used for aggressive recruitment purposes and brainwashing. The lie of this war as fighting for democracy and freedom is exposed by each soldier interviewed…. The horrors of depleted uranium munitions used in the war and the resultant birth defects among children fathered by returning GIs is revealed. But what is most important about this film is the recounting by our soldiers of the brainwashing techniques used by the military to train them into becoming soulless killing machines.»
–The Idaho Observer, July 2006

«It’s wonderful! It’s definitely one of the films we’d like to highlight at screening events. Its 28-minute length and focus on military recruitment make it perfect for teachers to use in high school and college classrooms. I particularly loved the extended interviews with Stan Goff and other veterans.»
