The Corporation Film: Welcome

The Corporation Film: Welcome
by Katherine Dodds, April 14, 2014 THE CORPORATION has been stunning audiences with its revelations of an out of control business model that mandates the pursuit of profit without regard for anything, or anyone, else. A decade since the film first launched - its' message is more relevant than ever. Join HelloCoolWorld and the makers of The Corporation as we prepare for a 10th Anniversary year of organizing, action and dialogue. A decade ago we had a grassroots hit on our hands, and thousands of people from hundreds of organizations and citizens groups rallied to help us spread the word– but now, in a post 2008, and even post-Occupy world, with Bakan at work on a second book wondering if we are all psychopath’s now – it’s time to gear up again – because we’re not done yet! We need to re-write corporate charters, revive democracy, and revolt against the profit motive at any cost.

True Stories: Taking Liberties Riding in on a wave of optimism and real belief in their mantra that things can only get better, they proceeded to enact some of the most authoritarian legislation in recent history. With fast-paced satirical style, this Bafta-nominated film shows how, in just over a decade, some rights and freedoms that took centuries to build up have been rolled back or cut away. The entitlement to habeas corpus – no detention without trial – established when the barons took on King John in the 13th century has, in some circumstances, been abolished. Millions of CCTV cameras up and down the country undermine our right to privacy. A series of measures has made it more and more difficult to exercise freedom of speech and already led to the arrest of a large number of peaceful protesters.

The War On Democracy Versión en español 'The War On Democracy' (2007) was John Pilger's first for cinema. It explores the current and past relationship of Washington with Latin American countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia and Chile. Using archive footage sourced by Michael Moore's archivist Carl Deal, the film shows how serial US intervention, overt and covert, has toppled a series of legitimate governments in the Latin American region since the 1950s. The democratically elected Chilean government of Salvador Allende, for example, was ousted by a US backed coup in 1973 and replaced by the military dictatorship of General Pinochet. Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador have all been invaded by the United States.

Power crime Introduction Despite making strides in scrutinizing crimes committed by economically and politically powerful actors, organizations, and even states, the field of criminology remains disproportionately preoccupied with socially vulnerable offenders involved in street crime. This observation is more than just a vague impression. Examinations of the major US and British journals of criminology and criminal justice reveal that a mere 3% of research articles focus on the criminal activities of corporations and governments [2]. This special issue offers more than just another round of discussion pertaining to so-called white collar criminals. By concentrating on what we call power crime, essays delve into the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of grave breaches of domestic and international laws.
