Granny Peace Brigade: Fighters for Truth, Justice, and Peace, of course...

This preview tells the story of a group of 18 women who traveled to the Times Square Recruitment Center in New York City on October 17th, 2005, with the intention of enlisting in the United States Armed Forces. The goal was, in their eyes, to enlist in place of young people who should not have their futures endangered by participating in an illegal and immoral invasion and occupation. They were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, prompting a week-long trial that resulted in acquittal. Previously associated with several other peace groups, the international attention this case received brought them together under a new banner -- the Granny Peace Brigade. In the years since that action, these woman have continued the struggle against U.S. injustice and militarism at home and throughout the world.
