Peace Now
A demand from the people

A movie directed by Thomas Lacoste (LBP, 2017, 23’ VOST en english, español, euskara & italiano) A film on the disarmament and peace process in the Basque country Watch and share the film as you please Peace Now, a demand from the people

The PassBand proposes a short film, Peace Now, a demand from the people to support disarmament and peace in the Basque country, to explain to the greatest number of people why it is necessary, and to highlight the absurd repressive logics and strategy of silence of the French and Spanish states.

While for the first time in the history of conflicts, a politico-military organisation one-sidedly declares peace and hands down their weapons, without conditions, the Basque population, if not the States, gets mobilized and decides to take care of the neutralisation and restitution of ETA's military arsenal.

The short film Peace Now, a demand from the people will be followed in the next few weeks by a full-length film by Thomas Lacoste on the necessary resolution of the last armed conflict in Western Europe.
