AWK.jpg Button: Are We Kinder and Gentler Yet?
$1.00 $0.50 On Sale!
AWK
This is a quote from "Poppy" Bush, George Herbert Walker Bush, the former head of the C.I.A. who rode into the White House on the coat-tails of the Reagan Devolution (no, that's not a typo, we mean De, not Re-volution) in 1988. In one of his more ironic bits of campaign appeasing to the pro-peace tenor of the times, George H.W. Bush, Senior actually said: "I want America to be a kinder and gentler nation." Coming from the patriarch of the Bush Crime Family, this statement only added insult to injury. Years later in 2010, Elton John observed that the United States had become a mean-spirited country, and he hoped it would become a "kinder and gentler" one.

(1.75" Button) • We were young, naive and perhaps a bit undisplined in the realities of business economics when we ordered 25,000 of these buttons back in 1978. Thirty three years later, we're down to the very last few remaining of this colorful classic from our sister anti-nuclear activists across the pond. Rust-free and looking as good as they did in the seventies, these are antiques, not 21st century digital fakes.

In February 2011 Republicans in Congress voted to de-fund public radio (N.P.R.) and TV (P.B.S.) broadcasting This is the button that began Donnelly/Colt's buttonmaking back in 1977... we created it for the local listeners support group, the Friends of WBAI... The issue is still very relevant today as corporate America has successfully privatized the airwaves, and the Reagan administration did away with the F.C.C.'s Fairness Doctrine, opening the floodgates to one-sided rightwing media consolidation and domination beginning in the 1980's

P-NQ
18" x 24" white gloss 80 pound stock.
Quotation from Pastor Martin Nielmoller (1892-1984) He survived internment in a Nazi concentration camp.
Text on poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Pastor Martin Niemoller

This quotation is widely used to voice the need for unity and supporting one another under authoritarian governments and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. Repression always begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates to encompass more and more targeted groups.

Voices from around the world address America and its foreign policy. Seen as individuals rather than as cultural stereotypes, people from all over the world share their opinion of America, its government, its foreign policy and its people. In the midst of growing international anti-Americanism, real people from various other countries, tell us what they think and why, in an attempt to further understanding and compassion.

A film by Christine Rose • A U.S. Citizen's journey of discovery into the lies, oppression and corruption that has invaded her country since 9/11.
The catastrophic events of September 11, 2001 caused a sea change in U.S. domestic and foreign policy. Liberty Bound takes a unique look at America's ongoing struggle to keep a comfortable balance between democracy, capitalism and fascism. This is a film about historic events that have changed our country and the world. It is a film about courage and fear; ignorance and awareness; propaganda and rhetoric.
The documentary explores unanswered questions, examines the U.S. government's reasons for war with Afghanistan and Iraq, and delves into accusations that...

Download a free Teacher's Guide to this film at: www.michaelmoore.com/books-films/fahrenheit911/teachersguide. Every once in a long while, a film is made that has the power to change minds. Often such a film is staunchly opposed, ridiculed and trashed by opponents in the media. Efforts to boycott it arise. Often the filmmaker is attacked because some don't want to hear the message such a film brings to a nation's attention. All of this happened when "Fahrenheit 9/11" first came out, during the critical fall of 2004 during the Presidential campaign.

BK-SIR
by David Cortwright * with a new introduction by Howard Zinn * 355 pages

SOLDIERS IN REVOLT documents one of the least known and most important aspects of the Vietnam War: the rebellion among U.S. soldiers opposed to the war. From the front lines to stateside military bases, the U.S. armed forces were wracked by widespread resistance, including combat refusals and mutinies. GI's produced more than 250 antiwar committees and underground newspapers to voice their discontent. A new chapter looks at the enduring imprint of this period on the U.S. military and the lessons this era holds for the U.S. occupation of Iraq.

$199.00 $149.00 On Sale!
GPPDC-100
A quick tool for cutting paper to the appropriate size for use in the 1" button assembly machine. PLEASE NOTE that it does NOT cut the paper to 1" diameter, but to a larger diameter, to allow for the paper to wrap around the circumference of the button in the button assembly machine. ALL seven sizes of the Graphic Punch die-cutters create an over-sized paper circle that becomes the finished button size, after it is assembled in the button machine. These graphic punches are only for use in the button-making process. It cuts the entire circle at once using a circular cutting die (which never needs sharpening). This device does the cutting precisely and ten times faster than cutting out the circles using a smaller hand held cutter with a rolling blade or by hand using scissors. A sturdy, solid steel, durable tool designed to last a lifetime. 5" wide x 7" long x 3" tall. Weighs 4.6 pounds. Made in U.S.A.

BK-ITS.jpg Book: In the Shadow of No Towers
$20.00 $18.00 On Sale!
BK-ITS
By Art Spiegelman. In his first new book of comics since the groundbreaking Maus, Art Spiegelman gives us a deeply personal, politically charged, graphically and emotionally stunning account of the events and aftermath of September 11, 2001. What Art Spiegelman saw in his lower Manhattan backyard on 9/11 was just the beginning of the horror for him. Panic soon gave way to fury as he watched the shameless co-opting of the tragedy by a government in the service of its own preconceived agenda. For Spiegelman, only one thing made sense — passionate dissent, and done in the best way he knew how: through comics! This amazing book is the result. In a large, two-page-spread format that echoes the scale of the earliest newspaper comics, Spiegelman relates his experience of the national tragedy in drawings and text that convey — with his singular artistry and his characteristic provocation, outrage, and wit — the unfathomable enormity of the event itself, the obvious and insidious effects it had on his life, and the extraordinary, often hidden changes that have been enacted in the name of post-9/11 national security and that have begun to undermine the very foundation of American democracy. Finally, Spiegelman shares with us a small folio of classic Sunday comics pages from the early years of the medium that resonate eerily today. Oversize book with hard 1/8" thick board pages.
Much more than a coffee table book or conversation piece, this one-of-a-kind book by a renowned American artist and author is already a classic in its genre. "In The Shadow of No Towers" is an invaluable first-person source document on the personal and national consequences of that horrific day.

(2.25" Button) • "In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me." --Pastor Martin Niemoller

This quotation is widely used to voice the need for unity and supporting one another under authoritarian governments and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. Repression always begins with specific and targeted fear and hatred which soon escalates to encompass more and more targeted groups.

DVD-TIN
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.

"Counting on Democracy gets to the guts of the election fix... fascinating, important, informative, teeth-gnashing cinema." - Greg Palast

Before the fiasco in Florida, most Americans assumed that the votes they cast would be counted in accordance with one of the fundamental principles of American democracy, yet 175,000 votes cast in that state, largely by the working poor and people of color, were uncounted. The story of what happened in Florida during the 2000 Bush-Gore presidential race plays like a drama in many acts.

BK-TM
by Frank McCourt

In Teacher Man Frank turns his attention to the subject that he most often talks about in his lectures-teaching: why it's so important, why it's so undervalued. He describes his own coming of age-as a teacher, a storyteller, and, ultimately, a writer. He is alternately humble and mischievous, downtrodden and rebellious. He instinctively identifies with the underdog; his sympathies lie more with students than administrators. It takes him almost fifteen years to find his voice in the classroom, but what's clear in the thrilling pages of Teacher Man is that from the beginning he seizes and holds his students' attention by telling them memorable stories. And then it takes him another fifteen years to find his voice on the page.

With all the wit, charm, irreverence, and poignancy that made Angela's Ashes and 'Tis so universally beloved, Frank McCourt tells his most exhilarating story yet-how he became a writer.

Directed by David Leaf & John Scheinfeld • (2006) • 96 minutes.

"John Lennon: Artist. Humanitarian. National Threat." reads the subtitle of this movie. In an empire that is addicted to war and militarism, Lennon really was seen as a national threat by the Nixon administration and the F.B.I.'s J. Edgar Hoover. That the filmmakers took fifteen years to complete is a testament to the timelessness of its subject. "Lennon's spirit, like his music, shines through this movie like a beacon. Powerful stuff." wrote the reviewer for Rolling Stone. This film is the compelling and provocative story of John Lennon's evolution from beloved member of The Beatles (1962-1970) to outspoken artist and activist to iconic inspiration for peace, and how, in the midst of one of the most tumultuous times in American history, Lennon stood his ground, refused to be silenced and courageously won his immigration battle with the U.S. government.

"A readable, engaging resource for reports that will also appeal to general readers." – Starred, Booklist
• "A well-organized, well-documented resource." – School Library Journal
Throughout U.S. history. antiwar activists have gathered and lobbied to prevent armed conflict. Often their work put them at odds with the majority population. Sometimes their antiwar positions gave their opponents reason to question the activist' loyalty to the U.S.
THE FIGHT FOR PEACE traces the work of antiwar activists from the Revoluionary War (1776-1783) to the conflict in Iraq in the 2000's. This book shines light on the U.S. peace movements and organizations that developed in the 1800's, as well as the international pacifist groups that bucked the majority in the 1900's. No other books present this history (besides Howard Zinn's classic 1980 "A People's History of the United States") The book also gives voice to those who argue that some causes are worth fighting for. In so doing, The Fight For Peace makes us face the ongoing tension between those who fight wars and those who fight to preserve peace.

This undervalued masterpiece of a film is so much more than its storyline reveals. It is a story of the power of photographs to tell stories and move us profoundly. The plot: as the representative of a U.S. firm, Christopher Anderson is developing a country estate on the outskirts of London into a business school for the 21st century, which would be fine ...if the building were not already the home of a unique, vast photographic collection, cared for by a small but determined staff.

BK-PJNG.jpg DVD: Paul Jacobs & The Nuclear Gang
$40.00 $35.00 On Sale!
DVD-PJNG
68 minutes • 1978 • Directed by Jack Willis, Saul Landau & Penny Bernstein. This remarkable documentary profiles investigative journalist and political activist Paul Jacobs, who exposed the U.S. government's cover-up of the health hazards from low-level radiation. He chronciled this scandal from atomic fallout contamination of U.S. soldiers (used by our military and government as human "guinea pigs") during the early above-ground atom bomb test detonations during the 1950's, to the problems still facing nuclear industry workers.
Jacobs died of lung cancer before the film was completed; his doctors believed he contracted cancer as a result of radiation exposure. The film was shown on PBS in the United States and widely distributed on television and theatrically in Europe. It was censored by Swedish Television during the time of a referendum on nuclear energy in Sweden. The film won an Emmy Award (1980), George Polk Award for investigative journalism on TV and Best Documentary at the Mannheim Film Festival. The film had never been released on videotape and only was made available on DVD after 27 years. It is still completely relevant today. A classic whistleblower story.

(At high speed, this prevents the flag from sliding up and off the top of the antenna). The flag may also be attached to a 3/8th inch diameter wooden dowel to use as a flagpole to mount or hold. Wooden dowels are available at most hardware stores for around 50ข

by Katherine Scholes. The concept of peace can be difficult for children to grasp, but award-winning author Katherine Scholes succeeds in explaining clearly and simply how and why peace has a place in all of our lives. The book begins at a personal level, looking at why different people's needs and wants don't always fit together easily, and how this can become a source of conflict. It then explores the many ways in which conflicts can be resolved, including the positive ways that avoid a winner/loser outcome.

Preview the first 54 pages via this link to a PDF:
http://www.maryknollmall.org/chapters/978-1-57075-755-6.pdf
Even before its official release date (Oct. 19, 2010) 15,000 of the 16,000 copies printed had been pre-ordered by retailers and distributors! A second printing of 6,000 quickly sold. After 15 years of meticulous research, fact-checking and verification, this book explains "why he died and why it (still) matters" to us, half-a-century later. James Douglass lays out the journey that led JFK in the course of three years from his position as a traditional Cold Warrior to his determination to break with the logic of the Cold War and lead the world in an entirely different direction. This sequence of steps led his adversaries in the military and intelligence establishment to view him as a virtual traitor who had to be eliminated.
Douglass's book has all the elements of a political thriller. But the stakes couldn't be higher. Only by understanding the truth behind the murder of JFK can we grasp his vision and assume the urgent struggle for peace today.
• "A remarkable book: devastating in its documented indictment of the dark forces that have long deformed the public life of this country, while also illuminating JFK's final vision of world peace and documenting beyond reasonable doubt the unspeakable assassination of our last partially admirable president. This book should be required reading for every American citizen. – Richard Falk, Milbank Professor of International Law Emeritus, Princeton University

Hardcover • 2009 • by John Perkins (author: Confessions of an Economic Hitman)
John Perkins has seen the signs of today's economic meltdown before. The subprime mortgage fiascos, the banking industry collapse, the rising tide of unemployment, the shuttering of small businesses across the landscape are all too familiar symptoms of a far greater disease. In his former life as an economic hit man, he was on the front lines both as an observer and a perpetrator of events, once confined only to the third world, that have now sent the United States—and in fact the entire planet—spiraling toward disaster.

DVD-SOL.gif DVD: Shadows of Liberty
$34.00 $20.00 On Sale!
Produced, written & durected by Jean-Philippe Tremblay • 2012 • 93 & 53 minute version on one disc • categfories: Democracy, Media Studies, Law, Sociology, Journalism, Government, History. Political Dcience, Communications. SHADOWS OF LIBERTY examines how the U.S. media are controlled by a handful of corporations exercising extraordinary political, social, and economic power. Having always allowed broadcasting to be controlled by commercial interests, the loosening of media ownership regulations, that began under Reagan and continued under Clinton, has led to the current situation where five mega corporations control the vast majority of the media in the United States. These companies not only don't prioritize investigative journalism, but can and do clamp down on it when their interests are threatened.
The film begins with three journalists whose careers were destroyed because of the stories they broke: Roberta Baskin, whose scoop about Nike sweatshops didn't sit well with CBS when Nike became a co-sponsor of the Olympics; Kristina Borjesson, another CBS reporter, whose job lasted precisely one week after the network spiked her investigation into the TWA Flight 800 disaster in 1996; and Gary Webb, whose story linking US support for Nicaraguan Contras and the epidemic in crack cocaine was trashed by The New York Times and the Washington Post. (His story was true, but Webb lost his job and eventually killed himself.)
