Freeman helps Howard Zinn deliver his message to the Italian Resistance in this video message.

Howard Zinn: Vicenza Resistance

When Freeman heard that Author, Professor and WWII Veteran Howard Zinn had agreed to make a message to the Italian People resisting a new U.S. Military base proposed for Vicinza Italy, he grabbed gear and schlepped into action!


"Professor Zinn and I shot the basic vid at his office at BU. I produced the piece, adding stills from the internets and my own footage. The translations came both from Cambridge (Mass) and Italy."

The US government wants to waste our money on another huge military base. The Italian government approves. The Italian people do not. (Sound familiar?)
