[haw-info] HAW Notes 3/16/16: film-in-progress; Saudi Arabia conference; links to recent articles of intest

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

Here are a couple of notes, followed by our occasional "articles" list.

1.  A documentary movie-in-progress, The Boys Who Said No!, aims to tell the story of Vietnam-era draft resisters who served time in prison rather than cooperate with the draft. It is being produced by Christopher Colorado Jones, a draft resister himself, and directed by Oscar-nominate Judith Ehrlich. The will start an Indiegogo fundraising campaign on April 2. Information is at www.boyswhosaidno.com

2. Over 250 people attended the "Summit on Saudi Arabia" organized by Code Pink in Washington, D.C., April 5-6. Ben Norton has a lengthy report in Salon, and the Real News Network has posted videos of the panels.
