Profit & Nothing But!, or, Impolite Thoughts on the Class Struggle

Loading...
Who said that the economy serves mankind? What is this world where one third of the population, in the rich countries, or more precisely the wealthiest two percent in these countries, control everything? A world where the economy is law, where this law of the strongest is imposed on the rest of humanity? Why do we accept this cynical and immoral state of being? What happened to Solidarity? And to the militants? These are the questions Profit and Nothing But! asks. Capitalism has succeeded in convincing us that it is the only truth, the only morality we need. It has even convinced its opponents that their failure lies within the normal scheme of things. Raoul Peck contrasts this heavily documented illumination of the capitalist system with the devastating reality in his native land, H [...]

Bitter Cane

Loading...
This exposé takes an in-depth look at the history and modern day realities of Haiti. Shows how the traditional system of semi-feudal agriculture is being replaced by foreign-owned modern plantations and an industrial sector where hundreds of factories are mushrooming around the capital, enticed by tax incentives and cheap labor. The exploitation of labor reinforces the class system and economic underdevelopment of the country. Includes interviews with peasants, landowners, merchants, and U.S. businessmen and touches on the consequences for U.S. workers and Haitian refugees.

Poto Mitan: Haitian Women, Pillars of the Global Economy

Loading...
"Told through the compelling lives of five courageous Haitian women workers, POTO MITAN gives the global economy a human face. Each woman's personal story explains neoliberal globalization, how it is gendered, and how it impacts Haiti. And while POTO MITAN offers an in-depth understanding of Haiti, its focus on women's subjugation, worker exploitation, poverty, and resistance demonstrates that these are global struggles" -- Container.

Aristide and the Endless Revolution

Loading...
"Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the former president of Haiti, was twice removed from office with the complicity of the international community. An investigation into the events that led to his most recent ouster, 'Aristide and the endless revolution' exposes the geopolitical intrigue, the economic alliances between the Haitian and U.S. elite, the armed criminals posing as freedom fighters and other factors that have consistently threatened this young democracy."--Container.

Aristide: And the Endless Revolution

Loading...
Jean-Bertrand Aristide is a Roman Catholic priest turned politician who served two non-consecutive terms as the democratically elected president of Haiti. On the morning of February 29, 2004, Aristide fled the country for the second time. Aristide served in 1991, from '94 to '96, and from 2001 to '04, and in two out of three cases, he was unseated by coup. In 2000, Aristide won reelection by a staggering 91.8 percent of the vote. The Clinton administration denounced the elections and worked with the European Union to block a $440 million loan, as a result, conditions in Haiti quickly worsened. Aristide--whose demands for debt relief and other compensations rankled leaders from Washington to Paris--was deposed. United States officials claim that Aristide resigned; he claims that he wa [...]

Bending the Arc

Loading...
"A powerful documentary about the extraordinary team of doctors and activists - including Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Ophelia Dahl - whose work thirty years ago to save lives in a rural Haitian village grew into a global battle in the halls of power for the right to health for all. Epic, yet intimate, the film is a compelling argument for the power of collective and personal vision and will to turn the tide of history." - http://edu.tugg.com/products/bending-the-arc.
