AIDS Denial Film Provokes Controversy

According to the activist groups, “The Other Side of AIDS” promotes many conflicting conspiracy theories around the existence of HIV/AIDS, including assertions that AIDS drugs kill people faster than AIDS, that HIV does not cause AIDS -- and that AIDS and HIV do not exist. The groups are also sponsoring their own screening of AIDS-related films this Saturday. Read more.
