USA vs Al-Arian Documentary  Film Now Available on the Web Free

Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, March 28, 2011

In 2007, Norwegian filmmakers released a documentary film entitled USA vs. Al-Arian.  
The award-winning film chronicles the story of Dr. Al-Arian and his family during and after his Florida trial, illustrating the political nature of his prosecution and the state of the U.S. justice system under the Patriot Act.  
Since 2003, Dr. Al-Arian's case has attracted the interest of major civil liberties  and human rights organizations in the U.S. and around the world.  
Peter Erlinder, a law professor, and former president of the National Lawyers Guild, said: "The prosecution of Dr. Al-Arian was a blatant attempt to silence political speech and dissent in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy. The nature of the political persecution of this case has been demonstrated throughout all its aspects, not only during the trial and the never-ending right-wing media onslaught, but also after the stunning defeat of the government in 2005, and its ill-advised abuse of the grand jury system thereafter."
Now this illuminating documentary is available on the world wide web free.
