Inequality For All (2013) | Watch the Full Documentary Online In the wake of the financial crisis and the recent rise of the Occupy movement, the issue of income inequality has gained unprecedented public awareness. Over the last thirty years, the U.S. economy itself doubled. But, these gains went to a very few: the top 1% of earners now take in more than 20% of all income -- three times what they did in 1970. Distortions are even more extreme at the very top. The 400 richest Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 150 million combined. While this level of inequality poses a serious risk to all Americans, regardless of income level, much of the rhetoric on this subject has been fueled by anger and resentment from a frustrated middle class who feel their birthright – the American Dream – has been taken away from them. Part 2 is the film on youtube, available in Europe. Structurally, the film is organized around a central “spine,” in which Reich speaks directly to the audience about key economic topics.

PROJECT WILD THING: A feature-length documentary by David Bond & Ashley Jones What will happen if we raise a generation of children completely out of touch with nature? Filmmaker David Bond thinks Mother Nature needs a helping hand. His children are fascinated by screens but are strangers to the natural world. Childhood is different to when he grew up - so many distractions compete for children’s time and attention. David appoints himself the Marketing Director for Nature and, with the help of marketing experts, he sets out to convince apathetic consumers, and his family, of the benefits of this amazing, free, wonder product. Project Wild Thing is an ambitious, feature-length, stunt documentary for international theatrical, TV, film festivals and public screenings. www.projectwildthing.com @wearewildthing Project Wild Thing on Facebook 30 potted plants, 12 people, two days & one topic - Nature.

We'd Have Revolution If People Understood This Martin Luther King, Jr. was working towards a guaranteed basic income for all when he was killed. Wealth inequality, neoliberalism, the actions of the Federal Reserve, along with the greed and theft of the global elite have made the call for a guaranteed basic income for all even more urgent in 2014 than in the 1960s. David DeGraw, interviewed here by Dennis Trainor, Jr. of Acronym TV claims the alternative is a violent revolution. In his new book, The Economics of Revolution, DeGraw writes: “Having that much wealth consolidated within a mere 1% of the population, while a record number of people toil in poverty and debt, is a crime against humanity. For example, it would only cost 0.5% of the 1%’s wealth to eliminate poverty nationwide. In this clip from the full 30-minute interview, DeGraw points out that the Federal Reserve is already printing money and giving it away to the financial elite.

The story of Oregon's relationship with Black Americans is complex to say the least. Today, contrary to its progressive reputation, Oregon is rated as "low" on the census map of U.S. diversity, ranking closely with states such as Kansas, Missouri, and Utah. How did we get here? This is a picture of us with our three children, Esme, Ella, and Salvador. 14 years ago, we bought a house in this historically Black neighborhood. For our family...this could be described as an inconvenience.
