National Bird follows the dramatic journey of three whistle blowers who are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial current affairs issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war. At the center of the film are three U.S. military veterans. Plagued by guilt over participating in the killing of faceless people in foreign countries, they decide to speak out publicly, despite the possible consequences….Their stories take dramatic turns, leading one of the protagonists to Afghanistan where she learns about a horrendous incident. But her journey also gives hope for peace and redemption. National Bird gives rare insight into the U.S. drone program through the eyes of veterans and survivors, connecting their stories as never seen before in a documentary. Its images haunt the audience and bring a faraway issue close to home. The show will feature excerpts from the film and an interview with the producer/director Sonia Kennebeck.

Full Circle: POLITICAL RECAP/FIRST DAYS 2-3-17

All across America and throughout the world, the inauguration of President Trump has ignited an unprecedented activism against sexism, racism, classism and xenophobia as is evident in the events that have taken place since his election. The women’s march that took place the day after president Trump was sworn in is a good example of this activism. From Berkeley high school students who took to the street to demonstrate against Trump’s inauguration to the many voices of resistance at the women’s march in Oakland and the protest in San Francisco we speak to representatives from community groups who are actively organizing to resist tyranny and mobilize their communities into action.

Here is a list of the organizations mentioned on the show tonight.
