Public Event. Free to the public. We the People 2.0 with a discussion afterwoods
We the People 2.0 a film by Leila Connors is a visual essay about the loss of democracy in the United States.
The story unfolds through the eyes of rural people who have faced decades of toxic dumping, drilling and mining in their communities. We learn that, in spite of all their efforts, they "get what they don't want, again and again," because they are, by law, truly powerless in spite of propaganda that says they live in the "best democracy in the world."
These people come to understand they can't stop the destruction because the U.S. has become on oligarchy, run by the corporate few who ignore the rights and will of the people.
These people are frontally challenging the corporate state; thereby saving nature and themselves.
Thomas Linzey, a nonprofit attorney's inspiring words show how, we the people, can turn this around and lay claim to our democracy. This movement is building as you read this, not just in this country but around the world; our films shows how and where it all began.
