Film-makers report from inside the Iraqi resistance
Scott Camil
January 2008

If you are like me you are very saddened by the fact that corporate media does not serve the public interest. What we get is propaganda and spin designed to promote the corporate agenda. In this day and time, the citizens are forced to do their own research in order to get news and information that the media and government keep hidden.

Wednesday night, January the 30th, at 8PM the CMC will show the documentary Meeting Resistance. Six of us went to Tampa to see Meeting Resistance. If you want to hear from those people in Iraq who make up the anti occupation forces, then this is the film for you.

These citizens of Iraq are Sunni, Shia, old and young, poor and rich, supporters of Saddam and victims of Saddam. They will all tell you what made them decide to join the resistance and fight the occupation. I will give you a hint, it's not because "they hate freedom" as we are told.

It is rare that we get such an unfettered look at the other point of view.

In the end all you have to do is put yourself in their shoes and ask what would you do if we were occupied by a foreign army? I know that I would be part of the resistance.

"By sticking rigorously to the idea of presenting the viewpoints of resistance fighters in their own words, and allowing viewers to draw their own conclusions, Meeting Resistance proves to be one of the most eye-opening films on the war." —Peter Martin, Cinematical

Meeting Resistance shows Wednesday, Jan. 30th, 8 pm at the Civic Media Center, 1021 W. University Ave., 373-0010.
