Kickstarter for documentary on the global protest movement

Taghi Amirani, who's running a Kickstarter for a documentary called "We Are Many," writes, "The film is about the global protest movement linking the massive global Iraq War protests of Feb 15 2003 to the Arab Spring and now the Occupy movement. It tells the remarkable story of people power taking center stage. Actor and activist Danny Glover is a contributor and Executive Producer. Jesse Jackson and Brain Eno are featured. And writer of The Rocky Horror Show Richard O'Brien has become our biggest donor so far."

We will bring you the real story, the people's story, including interviews with those whose protest experiences catapulted them into founding 'people powered' campaigning movements. Most of the people who helped create the biggest human gathering ever seen in one day are unknown ordinary people reaching for the extraordinary.

We will demonstrate the remarkable links between the 2003 protests and the Arab Spring, as well as with the occupation of cities across Europe, and now in America too. The Occupy Movement in America and rest of the world is the latest chapter of one of the great untold stories of people power. Our cameras are there to capture the historic moments.

We Are Many


    1. It’s hard to wake people up, make them aware..  From where I stand, it looks like these protests are doing a huge job of getting people to at least think about the situation, to acknowledge it as real..

    2. If anything, it showed us that a day’s protest is insufficient, it’s too easy to ignore. That’s why Protests have become Occupations. These can’t be forgotten about the next morning.

  1. You have to remember that the Bush Administration chose to distort the reality around them – referring to Feb 15th as a merely focus group – and of course, the media let them get away with it.

    Looks like a good project though – and there was certainly much media produced around Feb 15th. I recall working on a live satellite feed for FSTV from NYC and just after, another program for which we had video content submitted for a dozen countries.

  2. I’m excited/interested to see the documentary, but personally I prefer to contribute money via Kickstarter to something that doesn’t already involve high-profile and -value names. One way or another, this will get its funding no matter what – whereas the money raised by popularizing some talented nobodies’ project could be make or break for their continued production.

  3. In the U.S. people can choose to support this film via a tax-deductible donation through Film Forum.  See
