The Activists: documentary available on-line

Michael Heaney, prolific political scientist and peace activist, who was last seen as a dancing vagina at the Democratic national convention, has announced the completion of a documentary he helped make.

The Activists: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets,  covers a volatile and difficult period for the American peace movement, activism since the attacks on the World Trade Center in September 2001.  This takes us through two wars, two presidencies, and campaigns and coalitions across the United States.  Available free on-line, the documentary takes the perspective of those brave people who have struggled to mobilize effective political action.

The film was shot between June, 2008 and March, 2010 in New York, Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Tempe, AZ, Elgin, IL, and Washington, DC. It was created by Melody Weinstein, Michael T. Heaney, and Marco Roldán.
