I received this in an e-mail recently and went and watched it. It is an amazing piece of work. I am constantly blown away at the technology that is
available to each of us at a touch of a key. It is here for your thoughts, discussion and opinions about it. It is not endorsed or sanctioned by
myself or ATS.
Inspired by Sir! No Sir! the folks from the 'Not Your Soldier' coalition (focused on counter recruitment and challenging militarism in schools) have
put together an amazing flash animation.
It was done by Town and Planet Animation's Andy Menconi, who won the moveon.org's Bush in 30 Seconds award and it ROCKS!
Please check it out and forward it far and wide! You can get to it by clicking this link:
FYI I have also included the original note from 'Not Your Soldier' about it as well below.
The hardworking hellraisers at the Ruckus Society are proud to unveil for you the world premier of a bombastic new Flash animation called "Punk Ass
Crusade". It's packed with mind-bending images and an hot new song from The Coup.
It draws powerful connections between the Vietnam War and what's going on in Iraq NOW. An amazing new documentary called "Sir! No Sir!" has finally
unearthed the true story of the full scale GI mutiny against Uncle Sam's racist war in Vietnam. We made this flash to connect their struggle to the
young people of today who are exposing the lies of military recruiters and refusing to kill or die for Bush's punk ass crusade.
This video is a cutting edge organizing tool for our Not Your Soldier program and is designed for the Text Message Generation so don't beat yourself
up if it moves a little quicker than you do. But do us a favor and pass this message along to the young people in your life. It'll give you some
street cred to trade on later, and they'll thank you for it!!
