Bruce Beyer was our first contact for our film. As a resister during the Vietnam Era, he has pointed us in the right direction many times. Over the past 10 years, he has spent a significant amount of time consulting with a new generation of resisters from the Iraq and Afghan Wars. We appreciate Bruce's commitment to peace, and his support of our film.
Please join Bruce, check out the campaign link, learn more about the film, and become part of the team bringing this film to the screen!

About Bruce Beyer
Bruce Beyer was born in 1948 Buffalo, New York. His questioning of the Vietnam war began in the mid 60's as troop numbers began to build. In 1966 he dropped out of forestry studies of Paul Smith College to organize against the war full time. He burned his induction notices, marched on the Pentagon, delivered speeches, and organized protests. Over the next four years, Bruce's efforts to bring publicity to the antiwar movement would see him arrested on both federal and state charges, labeled as a criminal, and ultimately, a fugitive. Indicted first as one of the "Buffalo 9" then the "ROTC 19" Bruce was facing a potential 28 years in prison. In 1970, he left the country, spending two years in Sweden before moving to Canada. In 1977, to raise awareness for the issue of resister amnesty, Bruce gathered Vietnam veterans and antiwar activists and marched across the Peace Bridge. He delivered himself to the U.S. authorities and was immediately taken to jail. Bruce remains a committed activist to this day, providing counsel and support for American deserters from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. From War Story warstory.ca/video.php?story_id=93
