These are the stories of young people we love to hear – positive and inspirational.
An understanding of media representation of corporate governmental agendas and the lies taught in our history classes are a way to keep a society of dumbed-down people who don’t ask questions.
The leaders, the elite, the rich of this country have made sure to keep the wealth contained and not to be distributed to society as a so-called democracy is to do. While trillions spent on war with the tax dollars from the middle and poor class, breaks given to corporations while our wages show no increase in accordance with the rise in costs of living.
This docu-series sheds light on all things wrong and immoral with our country’s government with it’s justifications of atrocities against people across the world.
THE TRUTH OF THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE TOLD ON A MASS SCALE. SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS AND WHOMEVER IS WILLING TO OPEN THEIR MINDS.

The Untold Story of Latinos in America
“We are all Americans of the New World, and our most dangerous enemies
are not each other, but the great wall of ignorance between us.”
Juan González, Harvest of Empire
At a time of heated and divisive debate over immigration, Onyx Films is proud to present Harvest of Empire, a feature-length documentary that reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today.
Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! Co-host Juan González, Harvest of Empire takes an unflinching look at the role that U.S. economic and military interests played in triggering an unprecedented wave of migration that is transforming our nation’s cultural and economic landscape.
From the wars for territorial expansion that gave the U.S. control of Puerto Rico, Cuba and more than half of Mexico, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire unveils a moving human story that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S.
As Juan González says at the beginning of the film “They never teach us in school that the huge Latino presence here is a direct result of our own government’s actions in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America over many decades — actions that forced millions from that region to leave their homeland and journey north.”
Harvest of Empire provides a rare and powerful glimpse into the enormous sacrifices and rarely-noted triumphs of our nation’s growing Latino community. The film features present day immigrant stories, rarely seen archival material, as well as interviews with such respected figures as Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchú, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Junot Díaz, Mexican historian Dr. Lorenzo Meyer, journalists María Hinojosa and Geraldo Rivera, Grammy award-winning singer Luis Enrique, and poet Martín Espada.
The white man | US government has always considered the black people as a threat to society.
The history has shown labeling as “terrorists” black conscious, being militant or not, as terrorist groups.

Today’s discussion: Monsanto | GMO’s and documentary highlight “The World According to Monsanto”.
Links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US has adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. In the early 90’s, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.
Vermont has become the 1st state to require GMO labeling. Will any others follow…?

While listening to KPFK radio this morning, the Sojourner Truth show w| Margaret Prescod
The show highlighted this documentary and played excerpts which gave light to the conflict in Palestine/Israel. I went to a conference at UCLA a couple months back to hear the experiences of an activist group who visited Palestine. The violence against the people of Palestine is heart wrenching.
They are kicked out of their own homes, killed, beaten and the U.S. government is an ally with the entity inflicting these should-be crimes, Israel. There are certain roads they may and may not drive which is enforced by different colored license plates.
Nominated for an Oscar, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal first-hand account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. Palestinian Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, shot the film and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi co-directed. The filmmakers follow one family’s evolution over five years, witnessing a child’s growth from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him. The film is a Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production.
A new report warns human-driven climate change is having dramatic health, ecological and financial impacts across United States. The White House’s “National Climate Assessment” details how the consequences of climate change are hitting on several fronts — rising sea levels along the coasts, droughts and fires in the Southwest, and extreme rainfall across the country. It warns that unless greenhouse emissions are curbed, U.S. temperatures could increase up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century. Reportedly the largest, most comprehensive U.S.-focused climate change study ever produced, the report is being called a possible “game changer” for efforts to address climate change.
Democracy Now speaks w| Radley Horton, a climatologist at the Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University, who co-wrote the Northeast region chapter of the National Climate Assessment. “This report really tells the story very succinctly about how all Americans will be impacted by climate change,” Horton says. “It’s a nonpartisan issue.”
“A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet” goes through the history of the global environmental movement.
