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
$14.00 $10.50 On Sale!
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)

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.

CD: Music For A Better World - Tha Truth
$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.

DVD: The End of America
2008 • directed by Naomi Wolf • bad sec on her book of the same name
3 DVDs LEFT: THIS DVD IS PERMANENTLY OUT-OF-PRINT as of 2014.
Along with the rest of America, best-selling author and feminist Naomi Wolf was overwhelmed by the swell of conflicting information and the sudden march to war after 9/11. Wolf looked to history to help her understand the dramatic changes she believed she was witnessing, and discovered the disturbing similarities between post-9/11 US policy and that of historically fascist regimes such as Mussolini's Italy and Hitler's Germany. Wolf authored her next book, THE END OF AMERICA, which demonstrated that the United States was on a remarkably certain path toward ending democracy. Taking the thesis of her book to the streets, Wolf set out on a national tour to discuss the evolution of America from a functional democracy into a closed, fear-driven society with a terrifying absence of due process. In this profound and eye-opening film, Award-winning veteran documentarians Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg (THE DEVIL CAME ON HORSEBACK, THE TRIALS OF DARRYL HUNT) accompany Wolf as she discusses America's dangerous passage towards becoming a society of fear and surveillance, and expresses her plea to restore our nation's most cherished values.
