The film is a gentle reminder of why so many of us started marching for so many causes and have continued marching for those causes, be they peace and freedom, equality and justice or love and dignity.
Sometime we march for ourselves, sometimes for others.
I felt so renewed by this film.
When I was a kid marching for the rights of the Vietnamese to choose their own form of government without outside interference there were old CP folks and veterans of the Spanish Civil War marching beside us, survivors of the McCarthy era. There was Morris Kight and Harry Hay, Barbara Gittings, Del Martin, Phyllis Lyon, founders of the modern gay and lesbian movement.
Now I am the old timer still marching, still speaking out.
It must be the ghost of Joe Hill or Mother Jones, Emma Goldman or Lucy Parsons. Maybe standing up for justice and equality is just the right thing to do.
Go see this film if it show at a benefit for an organization you support or as part of a film festival. Maybe it will show on PBS, if we can save PBS or on Logo if they ever decide to show serious films.
