Pink Bloque: Anti-War Documents, TRT 6:39 2004
By The Pink Bloque, Video produced by Dara Greenwald and Blithe Riley

This video is an excerpt of a continually building, collaboratively edited (w/Blithe Riley) document of the actions of the Pink Bloque, a Chicago- based feminist street dance troupe founded in early 2002 as a creative response to the depressing atmosphere of leftist activism in post-911 America. The Pink Bloque attempted to reclaim what remains of public space in an increasingly privatized world to engage audiences in dialogues about current political situations. An archive about our project is at www.pinkbloque.org Followed by Pink Bloque Unjustified Tour: Soldier, RT 3:23, 2003 On the Pink Bloque Unjustified Tour: End The Occupation at Home and Abroad 2003, we encountered a soldier just back from Iraq.
