Apparently, "Palestine" is one of youtube's flagged (censored) words. Censorship is preventing me from including "Palestine" in the title of this playlist. World renown investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger has spent the better part of his life documenting the American empire and the resistance it has met. Mr Pilger has made over fifty documentaries and is the author, most recently, of "Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire," which examines ongoing struggles in Afghanistan, Diego Garcia, India, Palestine and South Africa.
John Pilger's award winning documentary film "Stealing a Nation" examines the expulsion of Chagos Islanders who were forcibly removed by the British government between 1967 and 1973 to Mauritius, 1,000 miles away, so that the island could be used as an American airbase. In March 2005, 'Stealing a Nation' was awarded Britain's most prestigious documentary prize - the Royal Television Society Award It was the recipient of the Royal Television Society's Best British Documentary award in 2004.
John Pilger quote from Democracy Now. "A cross-section of television viewers in Great Britain were asked what they knew about the so-called 'Arab-Israeli Conflict.' And, they found that of young viewers, I think people under the age of 21 who watch TV news, 92% of them thought that the settlers, the illegal settlers, were Palestinians. And, the clear message from this report was that the more people watched television the less they knew." The War on Democracy is a 2007 award-winning documentary film directed by Christopher Martin and John Pilger. Focusing on the political state of Latin America, the film is a rebuke of both the United States' intervention in foreign countries' domestic politics, and its War on Terrorism. The film was first released in the United Kingdom on June 15, 2007. Since 1945, the United States has attempted to overthrow 50 governments and has bombed more than 30 countries.
*** Breaking the Silence: Truth and Lies in the War This film, set in Afghanistan, Iraq and Washington, looks at President Bush's 'war on terror' and the 'liberation' of countries where bloodshed and repression continue.
In Afghanistan, John Pilger investigates the claim that life has improved for the women of Iraq now that the Taliban have gone. In Washington, he interviews leading American officials, 'neo-cons' in the Bush regime. John Bolton, of the State Department, now the US Ambassador to the United Nations, says he regards the figure of 10,000 civilian deaths in Iraq as 'quite low.' Breaking the Silence won a number of awards and was nominated for a BAFTA, a British Academy Award.
Wake up, get involved. Your kids, grand kids and your life will depend on what you do from now on. Our ignorance is their power.
