US Activist and Iraq War Veteran Vincent Emanuele Speaks Out
  This VIDEO
"...should be required viewing for all..." 

In this stimulating address, US Iraq war veteran Vince Emanuele speaks out against the rape of Mother Earth, Climate Change, the corruption of Western culture and democracy, the extreme concentration of wealth in the hands of the few, the destructive US war machine, and blows the whistle on the reality of life in the United States today, and the pervasive culture of warfare.

Vince Emanuele is a former US Marine of two tours to Iraq who refused to go again by laying down his weapon. He is now organiser for the Michigan chapter of Veterans for Peace and serves on the national board of directors of Iraq Veterans Against War. He hosts the Veterans Unplugged program on Radio WMS, Michigan.

Vincent is on a speaking tour of Australia in July 2013.

"Vincent Emanuele is a dynamic speaker who is speaking his heart
and telling the truth when it becomes more and more dangerous in
our "Stazi" surveillance State. It's young men like him that give me hope.
Thank you Vincent."
- Bill

"On The Bridge"   
A full-length documentary by Olivier Morel:

When these U.S. soldiers left home, their patriotism was firm, their convictions intense.  As they return from Iraq, nothing is clear. They are in-between, they are on the bridge. Their bodies and souls have been wounded or broken. How can they re-learn what it means to be human and stay in the world of the living?
