Occupy finance: Alternative banking?



While many believe that the occupy movement fizzled away after they stopped making noise and holding demonstrations.

The activists have been busy for the past two years coming up with different ways to organize. One of these ways have been through "Occupy Finance", which comprises of smart and economically savvy individuals who have put together an alternative to the capitalist banking system, prevalent on Wall Street.

According to them "We are dedicated to the proposition that citizens are both capable of and entitled to an understanding of how the financial system under which they live operates and that those who corrupt the system should be held accountable for their actions."

Superpower



Superpower illustrates how the United States has leveraged its position to ensure unilateral world domination through absolute economic and military superiority and government deception.

Superpower is a well-executed and comprehensive film that asks tough questions and goes behind the scenes of America's national security apparatus and military actions.

Far from a conspiracy film about the dangers of government secrets and regime change, this well-balanced film straddles the philosophical divide and allows viewers to understand the US quest for global dominance through economic and military strategy that is exposed through review of historical events, personal interviews, and analysis of US foreign policy.

The Price Of Sugar



2007On the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic, tourists flock to pristine beaches, with little knowledge that a few miles away thousands of dispossessed Haitians are under armed guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane, most of which ends up in US kitchens.

Cutting cane by machete, they work 14 hour days, 7 days a week, frequently without access to decent housing, electricity, clean water, education, healthcare or adequate nutrition. The Price of Sugar follows a charismatic Spanish priest, Father Christopher Hartley, as he organizes some of this hemisphere's poorest people, challenging the powerful interests profiting from their work.

This film raises key questions about where the products we consume originate, at what human cost they are produced and ultimately, where our responsibility lies.

War promises - Terrormanagement in the 21st century



Millions of people believe that evidence proves that Western intelligence services organised the hideous attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001. Even the mainstream media have stopped defending the official version and now prefer to ignore the issue altogether.

Distrust in Western governments grows as the wars of aggression waged by the USA and NATO continue to be justified with these false flag operations. Ever harsher domestic laws are being passed to crush all outrage and resistance in Western populations; at the end of the day they aim to unleash the German military on German civilians, instead of allowing morality and ethics to flow into day-by-day policymaking.

Morality and ethics long ago stopped playing a part in political decision-making is shown by the use of internationally outlawed weapons in all the wars NATO has started. Read more.

State of Mind the Psychology of Control



State Of Mind: The Psychology Of Control, from the creators of A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995, reveals that much of what we believe to be truth is actually deliberate deception. The global elites are systematically implanting lies into our consciousness to erect a "tyranny over the minds of men."

This film exposes the mind control methods being used to turn our once vibrant society into a land of obedient sheeple. Are we controlled? To what extent and by whom? What does it mean for humanity's future?

Obey



This is a film based on the book "Death of the Liberal Class" by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges. It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.
Music by Clark (warp.net/records/clark)
Warning - this film contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.

Capitalism is a cult. It is devoted to the ideals of privatization over the common good, profit over social needs, and control by a small group of people who defy the public's will.

The self-described "Communist Utopia of Marinaleda" is a communist cooperative town whose inhabitants have been taking over and expropriating hectares of land (now communally owned). Recently, it's mayor Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo led labourers into supermarkets and took basic living supplies (without paying) that were given to poor families hit hardest by Spain's economic crisis. Houses in the town cost only 15 Euros a month and with wage equality, everyone is virtually employed.

On August 16th, the mayor starts a protest march from Jódar across the Andalusian region telling mayors to skip debt payments, stop layoffs, cease home evictions and ignore central government demands for budget cuts.

Solidarity with Marinaleda. The rest of the world under the yoke of capitalism must know there is a very active bastion of resistance. Workers of The World, Unite!
