Poster: Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Full color laminated imported from England (published by New Internationalist) approx. 22.5" x 31.5"
Wall chart with the text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A 1997 survey fund that three-quarters of Americans had never heard of this document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It isn't taught in schools. Yet it is perhaps the most important document of the 20th century agreed upon by 155 nations throughout the world. Help increase awareness of it and the issue of human rights at home and around the world. This declaration reaffirms a commitment by individuals, communities and governments to principles which help shape the world. Eleanor Roosevelt, a member of the commission that drafted the Declaration, said of it in 1948: "It is not a treaty...[in the future] it may well become the international magna carta..."

DVD: The Time Is Now
$25.00 $15.00 On Sale!
Featuring, written and directed by Kenneth Brady 2006 78 minutes
Kenneth Brady's film is very powerful, reflective, poetic and brutrally honest. It is simply one man speaking directly to the camera. No film crew, no audience present. It is a revelation , as if it were made so that the information he tells us is recorded and preserved for a time capsule, to be viewed by a future generation. He has made it to tell us today, as well as those in the future that, yes, some of us many, in fact knew of the things that our government did in our name, and even though some did not remain silent, they were not able to prevent the atrocities. But, most importantly, the truth-tellers may have helped to limit the extent of the deeds. His point is that the truth-tellers of every era, are essential. Still, this film is not a guilt-trip for those who knew better but did not act or do enough. It is a plea to all of us to always, under all circumstances, do what we can to recognize the connections, refuse to be complicity and act courageously against actions committed in our name by the state. Show this film in home screenings and as part of a free community film series. It's a uniquely engaging form of narrative documentary that will captivatethe audience. "The Time Is Now" heralds a new voice and a courageous new examination of America. This searing political monologue exposes shocking discoveries in a way that is part plea, part confessional, and part outcry. Acathartic antidote to apathy and numbing complacency.

Book: Cowboy In Caracas: A North American's Memoir of Venezuela's Democratic Revolution
by Charles Hardy 145 pages Curbstone Press, Willimantic, CT
"An old and evil way of life is dying and those who enjoyed it are fighting to survive..."
"Charles Hardy has given us a unique persective on the Chavista revolution as viewed from a cardboard shack on a hillside barrio in Caracas. Writing in a graceful and conversational style in a series of vignettes, Hardy conveys with genuine affection and admiration the dignity and courage of the ordinary people of Venezuela people whom the western media, enscounced in fine hotels or toney apartments, only know as maids and waiters. A reader comes away understanding both why Hugo Chavez is loved by these people and why the U.S. government is trying so hard to oust him. With the Bush administration still trying to demonize Chavez and his backers, this book is a must-read for all Ameicans but a must-read that you won't be able to put down." Dave Lindorff, columnist for Counterpunch, Salon.com and author of The Case For Impeachment (2006)

DVD: Salt of the Earth
Directed by Herbert Biberman 94 minutes 1953 Black & White
This is, by far, our own Kate Donnelly andf Clay Colt's personal favorite movie. Made in 1953, it portrays the struggle for equality of Mexican-American miners and their wives. The men fight for equality with Anglo workers, the women for equality with the men. Based on an actual strike in a zinc mine in Silver city, New Mexico, this film was made against all odds, by blacklisted filmmakers. Real miners and their families portrayed many of the cast. Sure its style is 1950's hokey, but the main character, Esperanza's speech, about rising up together hasn't been rivaled. There is also a documentary ("A Crime To Fit The Punishment") and book about the making of the film ("Salt of the Earth: The Story of a Film/The Fascinating Saga of America's Only Blacklisted Film" by its Director, Herbert Biberman, written in 1965, 11 years after he made the film) The book is available from us in our Books section. The only film we offer in two editions: this generic version, and the deluxe version with many extras (see Special Edition in next listing)

CD: The Mis-Education of the Masses
$17.00 $12.00 On Sale!
by political rap/hip-hop artist Tha Truth 2010 1 hour, 11.5 minutes
Tha Truth is a conscious/political underground hip hop artist and "rap-tivist" (rapper-activist) known around the Philadelphia area for battling inequality, poverty, discrimination, and injustice. He has performed in countless venues at concerts, colleges, demonstrations, conferences, and benefits. Since 2006 Tha Truth has released three critically acclaimed underground political rap albums that attack the forces that maintain the status quo.
mix: truth, revolution, struggle, the red pill from the matrix, V for Vendetta, fightclub, the spirits of Bob Marley, Howard Zinn, and George Carlin, then add the Simpsons, the Boondocks, and fighting the system, and cook for 60 minutes.
"Tha Mis-Education of the Masses" was released on May 19th 2010 (Malcolm X's birthday). Tha Truth chose this release date purposely to honor freedom fighters Malcolm X and also Harvey Milk (whose birthday is May 22nd). This CD expands on the themes of equality and justice as his previous projects, while adding substantial doses of sarcastic wit, mind bending and humorous metaphors, and a variety of diversified beats comprised from Middle Eastern live percussion/drums, native flutes, acoustic and rock guitar, reggaeton, and a lot of the lost arts of DJ scratching and mixing.

$17.00 $10.00 On Sale!
by political artist Tha Truth 2013 22 tracks.
The latest of four music CDs we carry by political activist and singer/songwriter Tha Truth. We don't carry music , but his work stands out as so unique, so positive, and it's so hard-to-find elsewhere. You won't find it on YouTube. Incisive, insightful, poetic and unlike so much else in music. It's music distilled from the reality of life in these United States at this time in history. Tha Truth gets to the best in us, in the worst of times. The album title is what it's all about: Music for a better world. This artist deserves the recognition he doesn't get, because in the business of the music industry, challenging the way the world works is rarely well-received or even heard by very many. You can be one more catalyst for change by playing this music. Link to it on your blog, Facebook page or website; get it played on your local college, community or commercial radio station. Send the CD to a D.J. you know and like. Spread the word. It's music to make this world a better place.
His best yet.

Rosa Parks was the inspiration for the Montgomery Bus Boycott when she refused to move tio the back of a city bus on December 1, 1955. The boycott lasted more than a year, ultimately changing the discriminatory law that required black bus riders to move to the back of the bus if a white rider wanted their seat. The Neville Brothers made a music video of their song in 2004 you can watch it on YouTube

DVD: Dirty Wars
$30.00 $24.00 On Sale!
Directed & Narrated by Jeremy Scahill 2013 86 minutes
Journalist Jeremy Scahill's award-winning documentary investigation into the heart of America's covert wars. It's based on his N.Y. Times berst-selling book "Dirty Wars: The World Is A Battlefield"
It s the dirty little secret of the War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. We have fundamentally changed the rules of the game and the rules of engagement. Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government condoned torture occur in corners across the globe, generating unprecedented civilian casualties. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill (author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Mercenary Army) traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC kill list, not even U.S. citizens. Director Richard Rowley and whistle-blower Scahill s DIRTY WARS is a chilling battle cry for the soul and conscience of an America few of us know exists.
This award winning... film [is] thought-provoking and should be a first choice for anyone interested in the truth about America's current foreign policy and drone wars. The film allows the viewer to see how America's questionable policies and use of drones may be having exactly the reverse effect that CIA and military secretive war makers intended. It points out how these policies continue to enraged millions around the world and strengthen the hand of America's enemies. It uncovers what many would consider war crimes. Jeremy Shahill is a fearless, impartial national treasure and a dying breed of journalist who still seeks to get to the bottom of a story and reveal the truth no matter how culturally unpopular it may end up being. 'Dirty Wars' helps to shine a bright fact-filled light on U.S. war-making that many Americans would be surprised to know goes on in their name.
