Get the Film that Got Us Busted: Big Easy to Big Empty


An Email From Greg Palast
GregPalast.Com

Just released today: Big Easy to Big Empty DVD—the real story of how the White House drowned New Orleans and holds it underwater today.
On August 22, my producer and I were charged by the Department of Homeland Security with violating anti-terror laws—we upset them for filming the bad guys. While the charges were dropped (whew!) we still have the film—originally made for Democracy Now! and LinkTV.

Enjoy watching Bush's crony contractors, the ones whose "evacuation" let the city drown, trying to grab our camera and call in "security." Discover from an insider how the Bush White House withheld the information that the levees were about to burst. Meet Malik Rahim and his insurgent guerilla band of builders fighting to take back the city from the developer sharks. Follow us as we break into the housing sealed up to prevent the poor from returning.

Support our work, cover our legal, insurance and film costs, take a tax deduction and give this gift from "The City That Care Forgot." Just tell me the name of the lucky recipient in the "message" box and I'll sign it to them at www.palastinvestigativefund.org/19.

Better yet, get the entire Gift Set: Three DVDs: Big Easy to Big Empty, American Blackout, Bush Family Fortunes PLUS Armed Madhouse the harbound book, Impeach The President paperback, and Joker's Wild Dubya's Trick Deck (Tarot sized playing Cards) ALL SIGNED. For a donation of $250 or more.

For more info, visit the release page on gregpalast.com.

From the Palast investigative team, we wish you a happy, healthy and hopeful New Year.
