    Newsreel has a film named Summer 68.  The film has a section on GI organizing 
    which  focuses on Fort Hood and Boston Draft Resisitance.  It includes  a 
    look into GI coffee houses near bases.  
    While Im at it, let me say that to complain that there was a small crowd in 
    Berkeley around the recent Palestinian/Israeli fighting  , at least you had 
    an event.   
    Nothing happened in Vermont.   roz
