The War You Don't See

By John Pilger, world renowned filmmaker & journalist, whose previous 
films include /The War on Democracy/, /Stealing a Nation/, and /Breaking 
the Silence/ -- among many others.

/*The War You Don't See*/, Pilger's latest film asks 'What is the role 
of the media in rapacious wars like Iraq and Afghanistan, and how are 
the crimes of war reported and justified when they're /our/ crimes?'

Modern 'democracies' don't leave marks. Elites do not want the public to 
know what they're doing. The public is a threat that needs to be countered.

The lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth. This 
film is about your right to know.

Turn on the lights.

/"Never has so much official energy been expended in ensuring 
journalists collude with the makers of rapacious wars that they say are 
now 'perpetual'. They plan a state of permanent conflict wholly 
dependent on keeping at bay an enemy whose name they dare not speak: the 
public/." ~John Pilger

/"We had a secret weapon/," he boasted. "/We had the media, especially 
TV. You got to have the media./" Venezuelan general who, with CIA 
backing, led a coup against the democratic government of Venezuela in 2002.

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
