UPandOUT documentary film screenings

Showing Thursday, Sept 18, 2014:  
9/11 in the Academic Community
    < Download flyer >

Awarded for “Documentary Achievement” at the University of Toronto Film Festival, this is a unique film that examines academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11; it explores the taboo that shields the US government’s narrative from scholarly examination. 

It examines impairments in professional inquiry, the terms used as thought-stoppers in academic discourse, the implications of an 'official' 9/11 narrative that builds its foundation on tortured testimony, the non-response to critical scholarship on 9/11 in the humanities and sciences, and the attacks that occur on academic freedom. 

The film promotes a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, and aims to change intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the 'War on Terror' for a more peaceful world.

**Every THIRD THURSDAY** of the month we show you what MSM (mainstream media) won't; we unveil the true facts about zionist Israel, and other secretive dealings of the US government that every US citizen needs to know. Free admission and door prizes.

empire warsWhat's up with Sudan?  Read, investigate, get beyond Israeli / US propaganda. Who's behind Save [Wreck] Dafur? Ta Da! the zionist neo-cons who run US foreign policy. Until recently, savedafur.org was hosted by the JCRC.

A must read: Is There A Save Darfur Industrial Complex?

Quik facts:

"Sudan, the geographically largest country in Africa and the home of 35 million people, has been devastated by U.S. attacks for the past 15 years. In the early 90s the U.S. government declared Sudan to be a "state sponsor of terrorism" because the government of Sudan does not support Israel. The U.S. government imposed sanctions against Sudan.

"US sanctions and trade boycott escalated in severity several times during the 90s and 00s and damaged the Sudanese economy causing immense human suffering. Throughout the 90s the US government armed and funded the SPLA rebels in the south of Sudan in a war against the Sudanese government, and against rival southern groups, in which millions of persons were killed or displaced. Millions of southern refugees fled from the SPLA and now live in Khartoum, the northern capital. The culmination of US support for war in Sudan was the so-called "Sudan Peace Act", signed by George W Bush in 2002, which allocated one hundred million dollars per year to the SPLA."  Thanks Dave & Pete  ... much more


Deceptions, a citizen's film piece by Chris Pratt is available for on line viewing at deceptionsUSA.com. Chris says "How could I reconcile continual war, wiretapping, unanswered 9/11 questions, torture, rendition, terrorism, the loss of freedom, police brutality, news suppression, the bailouts, evaporation of the public option, a toothless financial reform, no real audit of the Federal Reserve, BP's constant lies, political bribery, uncharged war criminals and corruption beyond belief? How could I not react to this media deception, this universal deceit? My country was disintegrating. How could I do nothing?"

Boston BDS activists infiltrate a day-long series of Israeli propaganda events at the Museum of Science, Boston

On Sunday May 2, 2010 Boston and Cambridge activists protested the so-called Israeli Innovation Weekend (IIW) at the Museum of Science in Boston through multiple, disparate actions. IIWs sponsors, including the Consulate General of Israel to New England, were left flummoxed by the activists efforts and largely unable to prevent their successful, multi-pronged disruption of the event.

Protesters targeted IIW because it was part of a state-sponsored campaign to greenwash Israels discriminatory, apartheid regime and atrocious human rights record. IIW was officially sponsored by the Israeli Consulate, which also played a major role in funding and planning the event; nearly half of IIWs steering committee was composed of Consulate staff and the Consulate was one of the top donors.

 

Fire and Faith - The Catonsville Nine File

On May 17, 1968, nine men and women entered the Selective Service Offices in Catonsville, Maryland, removed several hundred draft records, and burned them with homemade napalm in protest against the war in Vietnam. The nine were arrested and, in a highly publicized trial, sentenced to jail.

"When they come for the innocent without crossing over your body, cursed be your religion and your life." ~Brendan Walsh, a planner for the Catonsville Nine protest, which quickly sparked similar acts of defiance from Camden, to the Bronx, to Milwaukee and Pasadena, and became a defining moment in anti-war activism during the Vietnam War era. "It became a turning point in the anti-war movement,” Walsh said of the protest.

 

Bernadette Devlin McAliskey - May 12, 2008

Veteran civil rights activist and socialist republican Bernadette McAliskey speaks at éirígí's James Connolly commemoration in Arbour Hill, Dublin, 12 May 2007. In this clip she talks about the nature of republican and socialist ideologies.  "I advise anybody here who has not read The Rights of Man to go and read it." ('These are the times that try men's souls.' ~Thomas Paine)

Her ideas are more apropos to the world today than when she first publicly voiced them in No. Ireland, in her teens. Bernadette is the youngest person ever elected to the British Parliament [video]; she took her seat at the age of 21!  See also this speech: "The greatest help that you can give the people in the North, is by showing the people in the North that they're not mad; they're not mad for believing, they're not mad for being idealists; they're not mad for thinking, that someday, somehow, we are going to achieve..."


 

Yes You Can (deal with Israeli apartheid)
Many parallels can be drawn between South Africa and Israel. One such parallel is the requirement for all residents over the age of 16 in the Apartheid State of Israel to indicate whether ID holders are Jewish or not by adding the persons Hebrew date of birth. Chris McGreal of the Guardian put it so well when he said that the cards in effect determine where they ["Israeli citizens"] are permitted to live, what government welfare programs they have access to, and how they are likely to be treated by civil servants and policemen.

Little Piggy, by Hat Robot
Chris Bodily is a very talented, creative fellow
"The pigs appeared completely at ease in their chairs. The company had been enjoying a game of cards but had broken off for the moment, evidently in order to drink a toast. A large jug was circulating, and the mugs were being refilled with beer... No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from and to pig, and from pig to main again; but already it was impossible to say which was which." ~George Orwell

About half way through the clip CNN’s own Ben Welderman gets harassed too and barks back.

Sands of Sorrow - 1950
The reality of Palestinian-Israeli History
A people made homeless 
There is an astonishing amount of ignorance about the basic facts of the so-called Arab-Israeli conflict. [missing: who dunnit]

This footage was shot in the late 1940s to educate the public about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who had been made homeless as a result of the violence and intimidation that accompanied the founding of the state of Israel.

What most Palestinians thought would be a temporary dislocation lasting only a few weeks at most became permanent. Homeless with just the clothes on their backs, they were left in the desert without food, water, and medical care to die.

In some cases the children are then “felt” by Israeli officials. ... "

How the Israeli War Party lobby controls US foreign policy 
Twenty-two years in Congress: How the game is played behind closed doors.  Americans have no idea

This is not the most professional-looking film ever made, nor is it the most visually compelling, but the information it contains is nothing short of electrifying. Why does US foreign policy consistently support Israeli military aggression in Lebanon and elsewhere? Why do we turn a blind eye to Israel's brutal and inhuman treatment of the Palestinians? Why are we in fighting in Iraq? The answers are laid out in calm, clear language by twenty-two year veteran member of Congress Paul Findley. He calls the control of US foreign policy by the Israeli War Party lobby "the most significant crisis we've faced in this country since the Civil War."

This is about weapons of mass destruction, about an immediate threat to the United States, had nothing to do with liberating Iraq…It’s all an appeal to emotion. This is the language of fascism.

Colbert Does the White House Correspondents' dinner
(Was he snubbed?)  Stephen Colbert spoke at the dinner and lampooned pretty much everything he could think of and Helen Thomas. As E&P reported: "As he walked from the podium the president and First Lady gave Colbert quick nods, unsmiling, and left. E&P's Joe Strupp, in the crowd, observed that quite a few felt the material was, perhaps, uncomfortably biting." Watch the video: MP (low res), QT (big file).

Colbert cmplained that he was "surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides-the president's side and the vice president's side.Colbert's show on Comedy Central, is "Must See TV" at this point already and these types of performances are the toughest in the business to pull off when he's tackling issues that obviously made most of the crowd nervous.

Take action: No fake news! Keep local TV news free of corporate propaganda.
Corporate propaganda has infiltrated local TV newscasts. The Center for Media and Democracy and Free Press recently exposed 77 local stations that had slipped corporate-sponsored "video news releases" -- segments promoting commercial brands and products -- into their regular news programming.

Stations disguised these advertisements as genuine news reports and passed them off to viewers without disclosure. This deception is a serious breach of the trust between broadcasters and their communities.

"While the world's attention has been fixed on the war in Iraq, Dispatches reporter Sandra Jordan and producer Rodrigo Vasquez risk their lives to reveal the shocking level of daily violence and murderous hate in the Gaza Strip. Palestinian civilians live under the threat of Israeli Defence Force attacks that do not discriminate between militants and children.  ...Within hours of arriving Sandra and Rodrigo are shot at and tear-gassed by Israeli troops breaking up a memorial service for Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist crushed by an Israeli Army bulldozer two days before."

 

9/11 Revisited: click to watch online at YouTube.
Feedback: "What one discovers from this video is that either
1) The World Trade towers were brought down by controlled demolition, which strongly suggests 9/11 was an inside job; or

2) Americans are being manipulated to believe in the controlled-demolition theory by a conspiracy so vast, so diabolical and so clever, that it has faked video eye witness accounts by firemen and ordinary citizens fleeing from the WTC collapse, faked a taped interview of New York Governor George Pataki, faked speeches and reports by scientists from prestigious universities and scientific associations, and even (this is perhaps the most unbelievable deed of all!) substituted a fake "Official 9/11 Commission Report" for the real one, with the fake one fiendishly designed to look like just like a coverup with impossible-to-believe features like the absence of any explanation for why the WTC buildings collapsed in a manner indistinguishable from a controlled demolition."  Visit 911revisited.com for the free DVD.

 

Is the government spying on you? The Bush administration is trying to keep the details of its illegal domestic surveillance program under wraps, even refusing to say how many Americans they've eavesdropped on. Many Americans -- especially those with family and friends abroad -- are wondering whether government agents have been listening to their phone conversations or reading their email. If you're worried this has happened to you, People For the American Way has created a new tool: FOIArequest.org

Israeli Army Embarassed by Video Broadcast - speakers on

ExxposeExxon.com campaign has created a short, funny video lampooning Exxon's unfortunate combination of huge profits and tiny social conscience - after giant ExxonMobil announced record-breaking profits for 2005 to the public -- $36.13 billion! That is the largest profit ever recorded by any corporation in America. The movie is funny, but ExxonMobil’s policies are not. Sadly, ExxonMobil’s profits have come at a huge cost -- both to consumers like you and me and to our environment. 

Recent reports show that 2005 was the warmest year on record! The debate among scientists is no longer over whether or not global warming exists but over whether or not it's too late to stop a massive, catastrophic climate shift. Yet, ExxonMobil uses its billions to actively sabotage efforts to slow global warming and to lobby Congress in support of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and off of America’s majestic coasts.

 

Tell Bush and Congress: Extradite Luis Posada Carilles!  
Urgent Alert - Take Action Now! Stop the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles from gaining asylum in the United States. Support Venezuela and Cuba’s demands on Bush to extradite the murderer Luis Posada to Venezuela. Tell George W. Bush and Congress: No asylum for the fascist criminal in the United States! 
Luis Posada Carriles is a notorious anti-Cuba terrorist and a killer. Posada was convicted in Panama after being caught in November 2000 with 33 pounds of C-4 explosives intended for assassinating Cuban President Fidel Castro. Now, the U.S. government is entertaining inviting this man, who poses such a great and vicious danger, to receive safe haven from prosecution in the United States. It is time for justice for the victims of Posada’s crimes.  Click on the text or graphic link to read background info and watch the new ANSWER video on Luis Posada Carilles.

 

Operation: OVER! A Spring of Resistance
"Spring 2006 will be the 4th spring of the war and occupation of Iraq.
The 4th spring of bombs over Baghdad and body bags full of young Iraqis and working-class Americans. The 4th spring of tyranny and torture in the name of freedom. The 4th spring of the armed robbery of the Iraqi people, and the poor people and young people of Boston.

So this spring, we, the Free Youth Network, ask you to join us in a campaign of nonviolent direct action to confront, disrupt, and break down the war machine. Right here in our own communities. We call for a direct action campaign targeting all local links to the war and the forces behind it, from the military recruiters occupying our schools to the authorities planning a bioweapons lab in Roxbury to the corporations profiting off the murder of a people from their offices downtown."

 

The Whitewashing of Ariel Sharon, the butcher of Beirut
See also eyewitness to Sabra-Shatila Massacre, Dr.Ang Swee Chai: "The slaughter of unarmed children, women, the aged and the infirm was shocking. For me, I was doubly outraged that I had to discover the truth about a brave and generous people only through their deaths. Until then, I never knew Palestinian refugees existed. As a fundamentalist Christian, I had been a supporter of Israel, hated Arabs and saw the Palestinian Liberation Organisation as terrorists to be loathed and feared."

Must see DVD!! See the trailer at thecorporation.com. If you only show 1 documentary, this should be it! "A freakin wake-up call to a world that desperately needs one."~ Jason Whyte
Greed, political corruption, unchecked power, mass consumption, and environmental destruction are the results of the ascension of corporations that now dominate our democratic processes, the media, the quality of life, and indeed our reality.  The Corporation remarkably tells this untold story with humor, balance, and stunning visual imagery that marks it as one of the best documentaries of last year, and one of the best treatises of corporate power.

Bush is not a Nazi - so stop saying that - flash presentation
Regardless of your political persuasion...
That the Bush wealth and prominence in American politics is derived from Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush's support of Hitler is a historical fact.  The media will not tell you about the Bush family Nazi association. Banks and shipping companies operated by the Bush family were crucial players in setting up the industrial power behind the Third Reich.

VIDEO | Fallujah: The Hidden Massacre
WARNING: This video contains graphic and possibly disturbing footage.
US Forces 'Used Chemical Weapons' during Assault on City of Fallujah, 
The Independent, UK - Tuesday 08 November 2005: 

"Powerful new evidence emerged yesterday that the United States dropped massive quantities of white phosphorus on the Iraqi city of Fallujah during the attack on the city in November 2004, killing insurgents and civilians with the appalling burns that are the signature of this weapon.

Ever since the assault, which went unreported by any Western journalists, rumours have swirled that the Americans used chemical weapons on the city. [Now] new information has surfaced, including hideous photographs and videos and interviews with American soldiers who took part in the Fallujah attack, which provides graphic proof that phosphorus shells were widely deployed in the city as a weapon.  Continued...

Innocent Voices, by Luis Mandoki. Released Oct 21st. Now playing in theaters country wide. Do not miss this incredibly powerful and heartfelt new film. More than 300,000 children presently serve in armies in over 40 countries. "This film has the ability to reach into the mainstream of this country and raise the collective conscientiousness of millions of Americans who have been lied to about the true nature of U.S. foreign policy." Based on the true story of screenwriter Oscar Torres's embattled childhood, Luis Mandoki's Innocent Voices is the poignant tale of Chava (Carlos Padilla), an eleven-year-old boy who suddenly becomes the "man of the house" after his father abandons the family in the middle of a civil war.

In El Salvador in the 1980s, the government's armed forces are already recruiting twelve year olds, rousting them out of their classes at the local middle school. If he is lucky, Chava has just one year of innocence left, one year before he, too, will be conscripted to fight the government's battle against the peasant rebels of the FMLN. ...

“Question War” Ribbon [(or Magnet] Says What Needs to be Said. While traveling on the roads of America, we see the “Support Our Troops” ribbons on cars everywhere. Though all of us wish the men and women in the military well and want them to return home as soon as possible, we know there is another larger message that needs to be stated.

"The best way to support our troops is to question war itself. It is time the voices questioning war become stronger than those justifying war. We are the growing majority and the question is fundamental. Share this message and help create a collective voice at a critical time. "
