Memory Productions, founded by David Rothauser, will premiere their latest film, “Article 9 Comes to America,” at the United Nations NPT Conference on May 14, 2015. We are seeking funding to complete editing the one hour documentary featuring interviews with Noam Chomsky, Helen Caldicott, Freeman Dyson, John Dower, Hideki Yoshikawa, Peter Kuznick, Ann Wright and a host of others from the Global Article 9 Conference in Osaka.
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and Veterans for Peace have made tax deductible donations, but we need more to complete the film by May. Sponsors will be included in all our publicity, speaking engagements, media coverage, etc.
As you know, Aricle 9 was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. They are now seeking re-nomination for 2015. The resulting publicity can only be positive for peace groups supporting Article 9. Join this powerful movement to bring America into the global sphere to abolish war making as an economic/political tool. Heiwa.
