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.

Fall of capitalism



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 tenets of the cult lead to extremes rather than to compromise. Examples are not hard to find. Read more.

Spain evictions & homeless crisis



In Spain every day 159 evictions take place. Many families to be without resources or employment opportunity have decided to take some of the hundreds of empty homes that exist in Spain.

In Terrassa, a town 20 km from Barcelona, we met the neighbors of an occupied building and live with them several days. Not that they don't want to pay, they really cannot.

Marinaleda: 21st Century Communist Town



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!
