The Corporation Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. The Corporation, sorti en 2003, est un film documentaire canadien réalisé par Jennifer Abbott (en) et Mark Achbar. Ce film est basé sur le livre The corporation, the pathological pursuit of profit and power (Les Multinationales, la recherche pathologique du profit et du pouvoir) de Joel Bakan (en). Le film est divisé en trois parties, reprenant les trois parties du titre du livre. Synopsis[modifier | modifier le code] Ce documentaire montre l'évolution des "Sociétés anonymes" (appelées Corporations en anglais) aux États-Unis, reprenant leur histoire depuis leur apparition avec la Révolution industrielle, où elles étaient conçues pour répondre au bien public mais furent détournées de cet objectif par la recherche du profit. À l'issue de la Guerre de Sécession, la Constitution des États-Unis est amendée pour accorder aux Noirs les mêmes droits qu'aux Blancs. Qui est responsable ?

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. We meet Moulad Sihali an Algerian refugee. Watch the full documentary now

List of countries by military expenditures This article is a list of countries by military expenditure, the amount spent by a nation on its military in a given year. Military expenditure figures[2] are presented in US$ based on either constant or current exchange rates. These results can vary greatly from one year to another based on fluctuations in the exchange rates of each country's currency. Such fluctuations may change a country's ranking from one year to the next. Currently, the world's six largest military spenders are the United States, China,[3] Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan and France, all of whom are recognized as world powers. The first list is based on the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) Yearbook 2013 which includes a list on the world's top 15 military spenders in 2012, based on current market exchange rates.

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. John Pilger interviews several ex-CIA agents who took part in secret campaigns against democratic countries in the region. John Pilger says: "[The film] is about the struggle of people to free themselves from a modern form of slavery".

The Curse of Oil Three-part series that goes on a revealing journey through the world's oil-producing regions, beyond the familiar territory of the Middle East. Now that the oil price appears to be rising inexorably at the pumps, newspapers are full of gloomy predictions related to our increasing addiction to perishable reserves of oil. Bill Cran's series takes a somewhat different approach. We are in fact still amply supplied with oil on planet earth. Cran's series leaves one with the feeling that there are no easy answers - but that, given the hysteria surrounding the subject, is no bad thing.

and CCR Comment on New York Times Article on Killing of Anwar Al-Aulaqi March 10, 2013 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: (212) 549-2666; media@aclu.org NEW YORK - The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights issued the following statement in response to The New York Times article today detailing the U.S. government’s killings of three U.S. citizens: "In anonymous assertions to The New York Times, current and former Obama administration officials seek to justify the killings of three U.S. citizens even as the administration fights hard to prevent any transparency or accountability for those killings in court. This is the latest in a series of one-sided, selective disclosures that prevent meaningful public debate and legal or even political accountability for the government’s killing program, including its use against citizens.

Werner Herzog Film: Home Rare Postcards Reveal Early 20th Century Panoramas Panorama of a performance of Longfellow’s “Indian Passion Play,” “Hiawatha,” in Petoskey, Michigan, Photograph by Alton G. Cook (1906). (All images courtesy the Library of Congress) The United States Postal Service was just expanding into widespread delivery to the remote corners of the country when panoramic postcards appeared to advertise in wide frame the beauty of these far-flung locales. Usually folding for more compact delivery, these broad little views offered expansive looks at landscapes, and also accommodated the rapidly growing modern marvels of the world, like towering skyscrapers or massive sea vessels. The Library of Congress recently added over 400 of these postcards to its online Prints & Photographs Catalog. Statue of Liberty by J.A. Most of the cards are around 3.5 inches by 10 inches and date from the early 1900s, the large part having been received as copyright deposits, according to the Library of Congress.
