AWK.jpg Button: Are We Kinder and Gentler Yet?
$2.00 $25.00 On Sale!
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 was the height of irony. 22 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.

$2.00 $0.50 On Sale!
(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.

$2.00 $0.50 On Sale!
(1.25" button) More relevant today than it was 33 years ago when we first introduced this button! 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

A film by Christine Rose (Liberty Bound, 2004)

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...

DVD: F9/11
Download a free Teacher's Guide to this film at: 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.

NQR.gif Button: "In Germany they first came for the Communists..."
$2.00 $2.00 On Sale!
(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.jpg 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.

BK-TM.gif Book: Teacher Man
$26.00 $16.00 On Sale!
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.

DVD-USVJL The U.S. versus John Lennon
$30.00 $24.00 On Sale!
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 film by Laura Poitras • 2006 • 90 minutes
Filmed singlehandedly by an American documentary filmmaker, Laura Poitras, who traveled to Baghdad by herself to capture this extraordinary film of daily civilian life in Baghdad during the second and into the third year of U.S. occupation. The filmmaker was invited into the home of an Iraqi family in Baghdad where she was able to create an intimate and profoundly honest portrait of the family both at home and in public. A heart-felt inside look at a family trying to survive life in wartime. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary of 2006.

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..."

"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.

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.

P-NQ.jpg Poster: "In Germany they first came for the Communists..."
$18.00 $12.00 On Sale!
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.

DVD-SOL.gif DVD: Shadows of Liberty
$34.00 $20.00 On Sale!
Produced, written & durected by Jean-Philippe Tremblay • 2012 • 93 and 53 minute version on one disc • categories: Democracy, Media Studies, Law, Sociology, Journalism, Government, History, Political Science, 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.)
