[Dusty Rose Natural Hot Spring Ranch – Operation Desert Shield protest]

About half of this is a home video of filmmaker Judith Binder visiting a hot spring area in the US Southwest in the interest of buying property there. The other half of this video is footage of an anti-war protest that happens near Los Angeles in the '90s to get US troops out of Iraq (Operation Desert Shield).
