DVD: The Time Is Now
$25.00 $15.00 On Sale!
Shedding light on episodes in American foreign policy that link our government to war crimes, and the arming and training of terrorists, both at home and abroad. And it connects these horrors to each of us, with an intimacy that is both comforting and at the same time unsettling. A gut-wrenching experience that will bring you face-to-face with yourself and eye-to-eye with the truth.
The Time Is Now is a very dark, very personal account of our Cold War crimes and a call to action for a U.S. Truth and Reconciliation Commission to face up to these crimes. Ken (Brady) points to documents that F.I.S.A. has made available to us – documents about Chile, about East Timor, about Cambodia and Laos and more. About Kissinger and the School of the Americas (now called the "Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation"). About how the events we brought about in these countries had nothing to do with democracy, nothing to do with containing communism, and everything to do with United Fruit Company, Pepsico and a variety of U.S. mining companies and others. Protecting big business profits is why we are there.
... it's a powerful telling and it's a story that needs to be heard by many more people. I think, too, that the call to action is entirely appropriate: we must face the crimes and the criminals in our past, must make amends with our victims, if we are to move beyond them.
