All Governments Lie – Fourth Friday Film

A film about liars

The Peace & Justice Center of Nevada County shows the documentary film, “All Governments Lie” – on Friday, May 25, 7:00 pm at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City,  CA.  

Independent journalists Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald, and Michael Moore expose government lies and corporate deception.  This film was inspired by the legendary investigative journalist I.F. Stone, who wrote a weekly, four-page newsletter from 1953 to 1971 that investigated topics ignored by the mainstream media. This documentary (2016) also examines Stone’s impact on modern independent journalists such as Democracy Now with Amy Goodman.  “All Governments Lie” was directed by Fred Peabody.    

Come for the film, and stay for the discussion to follow.  $10.00 suggested donation.

What do the youth think?

  

“In the same way that there are limitations on the first amendment  where you can’t cry fire in a crowded theater, you shouldn’t be able to get an AR15 or any weapon that can kill a number of people if you are a mentally unstable individual, if you are a person with a criminal background or somebody with a history of domestic violence.  I don’t get what’s so hard for these legislators to understand.  It’s a sensible gun control that both sides can support, but they suddenly can’t because they are bought by the NRA.”

“Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the NRA telling us nothing could have ever been done to prevent this…

WE CALL BS

They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence…

WE CALL BS

They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun…

WE CALL BS

They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars…

WE CALL BS

They say that no laws could have been able to prevent the hundreds of senseless tragedies that have occurred…

WE CALL BS

That us kids don’t know what we are talking about, that we are too young to understand how the government works…

WE CALL BS

If you agree  register to vote,  contact your local congress people – give them a piece of your mind.”
