We are working hard to raise the last round of funding to complete the film - to cover archive rights, post production, music and other costs. And as soon as we complete the film, we will send out the materials we promised.
We could not have got this far without you. Thank you for your fantastic support which started us on our way, we are very close to the finish line and we will hopefully be able to share the finished film with you and the world soon.
This is the story of a people powered movement that grew from one very special day in 2003 and whose story is not yet over!
Recently we filmed an interview with the president of Stop the War Coalition, Tony Benn, for 'We Are Many'. We are very pleased to have his support:
The 9th anniversary of the march against the Iraq War on February 15, 2003 is coming soon. We are gathering people's stories and memories of the day to commemorate this historic moment. With history seemingly repeating itself with the drumbeats of war against Iran, it is now more timely and important than ever to remember and learn the lessons of the past, and prevent another costly and catastrophic war. Our film, together with your stories, will make a big splash on the 10th anniversary in Feb 2013. So let's make a start now.
Millions of people said "Not In Our Name" to warmongers 9 years ago. Please share your own reflection and invite people you know who marched/were against the Iraq war to tell their stories too at http://www.wearemany.tv/:
- TELL your own memory of the day at http://www.wearemany.tv/. You can login with Facebook without the need to register a new account.
- It is easy to invite your friends by using our Facebook event page http://www.facebook.com/events/102996403157913/. SHARE this event with your Facebook friends (end of the left panel), and INVITE people who might be interested (top-right corner of the page).
- TWEET our commemoration and crowdsourcing event to your followers and directs them to http://www.wearemany.tv/.
Let's inspire the new generation of people and do our part to bring peace to the world. Thank you.
We Are Many team
With our deepest gratitude, we want to thank you for your support and amazing generosity - we did it! We reached the target!
Everything you have done has made a difference to the making of We Are Many.
And now we have 67 hours left. We have an opportunity to keep going. Kickstarter allows us to exceed our goal, and will allow as much money as is given before the deadline of Tuesday the 13th at 5.35 EST or 10.35 GMT.
All of us want We Are Many to be a film that will do justice to the monumental day that was 15 February 2003. To do so, we can build on this brilliant start and raise more than the bare minimum of $70K we needed to get started, so we can bring you the best film that can be made.
Just in the last week alone, people have been hearing about the film and writing in to us - we have been contacted by a former US soldier who became the co-founder of Iraq Veterans Against The War, and songwriters who have written songs about the day. The momentum is really building.
Let's keep going! Our community here is 480 + strong, and we want to open it up to as many people as possible - people who share your views about this story, people who marched on February 15th, or who simply have an interest in People Power and who opposed the Iraq War.
In the remaining 67 HOURS, we can really grow! Over this weekend, please consider asking one or two friends to join this community and see if they would either match your pledge or pledge whatever they can. If everyone of you, and each one of us here, succeeds in getting just a few friends to play a part, the number of backers will be more than 1000! Let’s try and reach that number, by passing the word to everyone by Facebook, Twitter, Blog, Email, or a call!
Help us reach the ultimate crowd! Can we attract 1000 plus backers? With all of us working together, I think we can!
Once again, our heartfelt thanks for all your help.
Amir and the We Are Many Team.
