The YES Film Fest will screen The Activists: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets on two days during the festival in theater #1 at YES Cinema in downtown Columbus. You can catch the first showing on Saturday, October 28 at 5:15pm and the second showing on Sunday, October 29 at 12:45pm. 

The Activists: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets brings to life the stories of ordinary people who tried to stop and end the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. At best, activists had limited influence over the conduct of military policy after 9/11. Yet, their experiences in the antiwar movement helped them to learn about speaking out in the face of injustice. They inspired others to do the same during the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street movements. Indeed, democracy requires more than just one vote every four years. It requires continued pressure by citizens on their government. This is what democracy looks like! The film features leading activists and scholars, including Tom Hayden, Leslie Cagan, Medea Benjamin, and Michael Heaney.
