TENDER FOR S.U.A.

Sat. Nov. 11 - 12PM - All ages -
FROM NOON TO 5PM
SOUTH UNION ARTS MARKET (arts, crafts, and everything in between)

Sun. Nov. 12 - 7PM - All ages -
::screening "Iraq for Sale"::
Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers is the story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed, and Uncovered) 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. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.
