I have been involved in producing a video in Kent, Ohio, for the Chris Chandler song, "There's Something In the Air/But It's Not on the Airwaves," which is a song that addresses the media blackout on the anti-war movement.

We had cast a role for an actress as a modern war bride. On Monday, August 1, we reviewed with her the scene we were planning, in which she places a triangular folded U.S. flag on a headstone and mourns. When the actress showed up Tuesday to shoot the scene, she told us that her very good friend, U.S. Marine reservist Nate Deyarmin of Tallmadge, Ohio, had been killed in Iraq the day before. So when we shot the mourning scenes, they were real. The actress has asked us to dedicate the video to her friend, which we plan to do.

Unprecedented standing ovations have followed this song as it is been performed by Chris Chandler and his band for the past 40 days on both coasts. This has occurred not only at the usual demonstrations, but more importantly at mainstream music festivals, proving once again, how many of us there are out there.

Local activists have rallied around these events passing out flyers for September 24 in Washington DC. The music video contains footage shot by many indymedia videographers including scenes from rallies in Washington DC; Dover, New Hampshire; New York City; Quebec; Miami; Kanaskis, and Kent, Ohio.

We will have this video finished by Monday morning. In the meantime you can hear the song here.

Any help you can give us on getting this video into wide distribution would be appreciated.
