Paying The Price For Peace
In 1987, S. Brian Willson, a Vietnam veteran sat down on the railroad tracks outside the Concord Naval Weapons Station in California to protest a shipment of weapons intended to arm the Nicaraguan Contra army. Underestimating the U.S. Navy’s intolerance for peaceful protest, Willson lost both of his legs and suffered a fractured skull when the train was ordered not to stop. This is the story of one man who literally put his body on the line to dissent his country’s imperialistic nature after witnessing U.S. savagery during the Vietnam War that changed his political convictions. Realizing that his power came not from bearing arms, but from bearing the truth, Willson has become one of today’s most resolute voices against war. Including interviews with Martin Sheen, Daniel Ellsberg, Alice Walker, Ron Kovic, and narrated by Emmy Award-winner Peter Coyote, “Paying the Price for Peace” is a film that will embolden all people who strive for peace.

Speaking Freely Volume Five: Hugo Chavez
In this special volume of the series, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez speaks to members of the international press core about the advantages of socialism over capitalism and explains why true democracy cannot exist under the latter. Noting that the American empire's practice of privatization, foreign intervention, and violence is not conducive to a humanistic society, Chavez instead offers that the healthiest government is one in which all of its citizens play a role in its construction and development - that the ultimate voice is the voice of the people and that Venezuela will always be committed to maintaining that ideal.

Companeros De Lucha (Brothers In Arms)
Playa Pal Pueblo is the name given to a small circle of tents on the beach in Carolina, Puerto Rico, where a handful of environmental activists have lived for six years, weathering mosquitoes, hurricanes and heat, to protest the development of a Marriott hotel. United by their belief that that this unassuming beach belongs to the people, this tenacious ‘band of brothers’ have held off construction of the new hotel -- despite constant pressure from Marriott managers -- and the Puerto Rican tourism board. Filmmaker Juan C. Davila moves into the camp and explores the unique personalities, deep passions and determination of the people who are fighting to protect the beach. In the shadow of a multi-million dollar construction project, a rag tag group of concerned activists come together and show how the power of the people can defeat a giant.
