Why We Fight

DVD Cover

This 2006 documentary by Eugene Jarecki explores the wars led by the United States since WWII, focusing on the way in which the War on Terror, in particular, threatens the core principles of our democracy. The film goes beyond asking why America fights by questioning how American political dominance in the world impacts others and how it ultimately affects the US and its identity as a democratic republic.

Peter Deccy, Development Director of Peace Action, will lead the discussion. Peter joined the staff of SANE in 1983, and started SANE’s national canvass program. He became Development Director of Peace Action in 1998.

Planned by the Peace and Justice Coalition of Prince George’s County.
