      NY Labor Backs Campaign To Distribute Antiwar Film on Afghanistan

      According to Michael Zweig, director of working class studies at CUNY/Stony Brook, the film, "Why Are We in Afghanistan?," winner of several labor film festival awards, is being made available with a teacher's guide to thousands of public school teachers and students. 

      AFT Local 2, with over 100,000 members, and AFT 2190, representing 34,000 college teachers and staff in the New York system, are distributing anti-war organizing "start up kits" to accompany distribution.  For more information on the DVD, go to Why Are We in Afghanistan?, and here.  Organizing by US Labor Against the War was instrumental in promoting the endorsement of the DVD by the educational organizations.
