Modern Day Warrior from Lance Thorn on Vimeo.

A piece created for American Indian History Month in collaboration with artist Mic Jordan. I traveled with Jordan to his hometown Belcourt, an American Indian reservation town in North Dakota. It was an enlightening trip. There was so much to capture but with the expected time limits, we got what was needed to convey the message of his poem, Modern Day Warrior.

#TastesLikeTarSands at Beverage Conference in Napa 23-24 Mar 2014 from Peter Menchini on Vimeo.

The prequel to this video is here:

Why do Cola-Cola and Pepsi use tar sands oil to power their fleets of trucks? Tar sands mining poisons vast amounts of water every day with ammonia, cyanide, arsenic and other known carcinogens, which are then dumped into massive leaky “lakes” of poisonous wastewater.

Significantly increased levels of these carcinogens have been found in watersheds as far as 50 miles away from the tar sands mining sites. Local indigenous communities have reported unusually high rates of rare types of cancer associated with these toxins, along with fish with severe deformities. End use of tar sands oil now!

Police Attack CCSF Student Protesters 13 Mar 2014 from Peter Menchini on Vimeo.

As City College of San Francisco (CCSF) students held their sit-in to demand the resignation of dictator Bob Agrella, police attacked them. At least one woman was thrown to the ground and police held a man on the ground and punched him.

The one-man rule of Special Trustee Bob Agrella has been a disaster for CCSF students. Agrella and his administration have cut classes, while trying to give administrators a 19% pay raise; they have imposed a Payment Plan that discriminates against immigrant students, while decimating the Diversity Departments; they continue to push the policies of the illegitimate ACCJC accreditation commission, even though the courts have issued an injunction against it. Students demand Agrella’s immediate resignation, the reversal of his anti-student actions, and the democratic election of a new Board of Trustees.
