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 we still have the film—originally made for Democracy Now!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.

Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters. Because governments come and governments go – about every six to seven years on average since 1945 – getting too focused on their long-term fiscal aspirations is often pointless... More>>

Keith Rankin: Liberal Democracy In The New Neonationalist Era: The Three 'O's
The proposed ‘New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme’ (‘the scheme’) has attracted strong debate among the more left-wing and liberal groupings, within New Zealand-Aotearoa. This debate should be seen as a positive rather than negative tension because of the opportunity to consider and learn from the implications and sharpen advocacy... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Words Matter, Prime Minister
Words matter, especially when uttered by politicians. History is littered with examples of careless or injudicious words uttered by politicians coming back to haunt them, often at the most awkward of times. During the 1987 election campaign, when electoral reform was a hot issue, Prime Minister David Lange promised to have a referendum on the electoral system... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
