[] Blockade (Documentary): Nonviolent Resistance to Stop Genocide

Blockade - A documentary on nonviolent peace activism in the USA protesting the Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) genocide in 1971.

Created by NYC/DC based team of filmmakers, this documentary tells the inspiring story of how a group of people in Delaware Valley area (Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Washington DC) stood up in 1971 against the brutal oppression of the Pakistani military in Bangladesh the then East Pakistan.

Through interviews, archival TV footage and photographs, the film weaves in historical accounts of the genocide in Bangladesh, the misguided US foreign policy towards Pakistan at the time, and the common man's protest against injustice.
