Hey! The Truth IS Out There!

Ever feel like your some of your teachers and the corporate-controlled mainstream media arent giving you the full picture? Dont despair the truth is out there, but you may have to work to find it. The November 2002 "Just Gimme Some Truth" conference sought to offer ideas and tools on finding the truth.

Members of the Marshall University student group MAPS (Marshall Action for Peaceful Solutions) worked hard for about nine months to organize their superlative conference to expose some truths about peace and justice and the mass media. OVEC is so glad to be a supporter of the MAPS students. Yall rock!

OVECs Dave Cooper hosted a showing of Blue Vinyl, a funny-sad documentary about the vinyl industry. Yup, we are living in dioxin-toxic-soup.

Populist Jim Hightower motivated the MAPS-sters to agitate and organize as did our nations founders and to gol-dang have fun while doing so.

In fact, he said, the work of organizing is "...just about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on."
