Peaceful Protest
This video documents the peaceful resistance and protest movement against U.S. Navy bombing practices on Vieques, a sister island of Puerto Rico, a movement which dramatically escalated after two bombs killed David Sanes, a Viequense civilian employee, in April 1999. 
The video includes interviews with protesters, scenes of Navy bombing and environmental destruction, and the May 2000 invasion of the civil disobedience camp and mass arrests by the U.S. Marines, Federal Marshals and the FBI.
