Paying the Price for Peace is here!  Premiere of this very important documentary in SWFL!

Saturday, July 2, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers. An invitation will go out today. Here is what Cynthia McKinney has to say about this film:

"Every person in the U.S. needs to see this film. Every person who is in favor of U.S. wars needs to see this. Every person worried about their bank account being frozen if they stand up for what they believe in needs to watch Paying The Price For Peace."

Cynthia McKinney, PhD, Former US Congresswoman

The film is narrated by Peter Coyote. Alice Walker, Martin Sheen, Phil Donahue, Cindy Sheen, Daniel Ellsberg, Chelsea Manning, Col. Ann Wright, Medea Benjamin, Pres Daniel Ortega and little ole me are some of the people interviewed in it.
