Robert Greenwald's new movie Iraq for Sale: The War
Profiteers is creating quite a buzz in the media.

The New York Times review says:

"Mr. Greenwald compiles a horrifying catalog of greed,
corruption and incompetence among private contractors in Iraq, focusing
primarily on Halliburton, Blackwater Security Consulting and CACI
International... the movie goes on to trace connections between the
contractors and the Republican Party, assert the buying of influence and
explores what it says are questionable accounting systems that encourage an
exorbitant waste of taxpayer money. And that's just the first 30 minutes."

The Los Angeles Times says the film could "unite viewers
across all political spectra."

Halliburton, Dick Cheney and Republican leaders everywhere
don't want you to see this movie, especially in October, just a few weeks
before Election Day. That's why over 100 DFA groups around the country have
already set-up a screening of Iraq for Sale so you can see it FREE.

Search for a free screening:

You probably remember a few of Robert Greenwald's other
movies such as Outfoxed and WalMart: The High Cost of Low Price. In Iraq for
Sale, Greenwald takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers,
widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of
profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. The film uncovers the
connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the
decision makers who let it happen.

Movies are a great way to spread a progressive message and
have fun. It's also an excellent tool to recruit new members and students.

Can't find a screening near you? Just set up a DFA-link
screening during the week of October 8 to 14. Then get at least 15 people
to RSVP by September 25 and you will receive a free DVD courtesy of DFA. In
the past, DFA activists have organized house parties or used community
centers. Often community colleges and universities have free rooms available
for just this type of thing. Make a party out of it, who doesn't like a free
movie and some popcorn?

Set up your own event (you may need to login in first):

Thanks for everything you do to move the message forward,
