These four movies were taken at the April 10 rally in San Francisco, using the "video" feature of a small digital camera. Hence, the picture quality is fairly low, but the sound quality is quite good. The clips are all QuickTime movies and are fairly short -- most are less than a minute long. The file size for each clip is shown below, in case you have a slow dial-up connection and can't download large files.
To make the content of the movies more accessible to everyone, I have placed a transcription of each speaker's words below each link.

"Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every-- They're gonna say some Palestinian being too radical -- well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!"

"In light of that, you know, the occupation is a source of tremendous violence against Iraqis. I think we've got to support the resistance; we've got to say that we support attacks against the occupying forces. So I mean -- and you can imagine what kind of an inspiring thing that is for people in Palestine, for people in Bolivia, for people in Argentina, Colombia, all over the world, facing down the barrel of a US-supplied gun. Seeing the people of Iraq fight back, that's what we need."

"We stand here -- we stand here recognizing that the war on Iraq is illegal, that the war on Iraq is illegal, and that resistance, that resistance against this war is protected by international law. It is legitimate, and that we -- and we in this movement support the resistance against American imperialism by any means necessary."
Click to see and hear U.C. Berkeley Lecturer Hatem Bazian say that the Vietnam War will be "child's play" compared to Iraq: (3.3mb)
"And the people in Iraq understand who's the foreigner in the country. It's not the Arabs who are coming to help. Even if more Arabs who come to help, they understand who's helping and who's opposing them. The-- it took the British three years to unite the Iraqis against them. And it took less than a year for the-- for the Bush administration to unite all the Iraqis. And they need to understand: what took place in Vietnam will be child's play to what will take place in Iraq..."
