Events at the University of Pittsburgh, Titusville Campus


Here at UPT, a branch campus of the University of Pittsburgh (we're in Titusville, Pa., in northwestern Pennsylvania) our Teach-In took place over several days.  


Two Frontline programs were shown to students: Iraq: The Lost Year and The Torture Question.  They were well-received.  But our big effort was showing Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers, the new Robert Greenwald film.  It is powerful, makes its point clearly, and is a great tool for educating people as to the nature of this war.  Students as well as local residents attended.  All were affected by it and I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that most were shocked to learn of the level of profiteering and its connections to congressmen and senators.  


As events unfold, we here at UPT intend to hold events that will help bring this horrific war to an end.  It's amazing what happens to people when the scales drop off their eyes.
