Showing Thursday, April 15, in Cambridge:

*The War on Democracy*  is a John Pilger award-winning documentary that 
rebukes the United States' intervention in foreign countries' domestic 
politics, and its "/War on Terrorism/". It focuses on US intervention in 
Latin America.

Pilger interviews several ex-CIA agents who purportedly took part in 
secret campaigns against democratic countries and who he claims are 
profiting from the war in Iraq. He investigates the /School of the 
Americas/ - dubbed the /School of Assassins /- at Fort Benning, Georgia, 
where Latin American torture squads were trained.

/"I've heard people say that what happened in Abu Ghraib is an isolated 
incident. And I have to just shake my head and say 'are we on the same 
planet?  Aren't you aware of our history? Isn't history taught in the 
class-room about the role of the US Government and human rights 
violations?' /” ~Sister Dianna Ortiz, Roman Catholic nun, horrifically 
tortured in Guatemala - by a US citizen.

/"We didn't give a hoot about democracy. I mean it was fine if a 
government was elected and would cooperate with us, but uh if it didn't, 
democracy didn't mean a thing to us. And I don't think it means a thing 
today./" ~Philip Agee, CIA agent 1957-1969
