Effective Moral Sanction
This Is Where We Take Our Stand -- part of the Winter Soldier Project comprising videotaped testimonies by Iraq Veterans Against the War -- looks at the reality of America's war machine. IVAW’s presence in uniform at the Democratic National Convention stunned police sent to molest war protestors. As IVAW marched in order past the riot squads to the cadence of their anti-war marching song, the police refused to arrest them. An effective act of moral sanction if I’ve ever seen one.
