Alone Against The Weapon Industry – The Fight of Jürgen Grässlin
´28, WDR 2009
Hardly anyone knows: Germany is the world’s number three arms exporteur ‑sales- forecast is rising, even in the crisis. One who is in constant resistance against the production of weapons in Germany is Jürgen Grässlin. With unbroken vehemence, the Freiburg secondary school teacher has already been over 25 years fighting against German weapon manufacturers such as the company Heckler & Koch.
In the film we accompany the peace activist and ask how successful can a single human be against such a large and powerful industry?
