A Glum Oscar Night For Ge
Activists engaged in a boycott of General Electric have found a new way of getting attention: They won an Oscar. On Mar. 30, the film, Deadly Deception: General Electric, Nuclear Weapons, and Our Environment, won the Oscar for best documentary, short subject. It was produced by Infact, a Boston-based group whose mission is to force GE out of the nuclear weapons business. In her acceptance speech, filmmaker Debra Chasnoff urged the event's 1.5 billion viewers to "boycott GE."
