Segment 1: "Preventing Gun Violence – An International Perspective"
On October 25, 2015, the Joint Annual Dinner of the Sacramento Chapters of
Physicians for Social Responsibility and the United Nations Association
featured keynote speaker Rebecca Peters, the founding director of
the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA). Following the 1996
Port Arthur massacre in Australia, Ms. Peters led a grass roots gun control
campaign that led to prompt action by the Australian government to ban all
assault weapons in their country. For her work on gun violence prevention,
she received the Australian Human Rights Medal, the Australian equivalent of
the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom.
During her keynote address, Ms.
Peters described how she and her Australian colleagues were able to get the
nationwide ban on assault weapons passed. She noted that following the ban,
over a million firearms were removed from circulation, overall rates of
firearm related deaths and injuries, already much lower than in the United
States, declined even further, and there hasn't been a single additional
Ms. Peters challenged Americans to take similar action to stop
the epidemic of gun violence in our country.
Segment 2: "Border, Inc."
The same companies that profiteered from the wars in Iraq are profiteering
from the militarization of our own border. Time and time again on the
campaign trail, Donald Trump has called for building "the great wall
of Trump" on the U.S./Mexico border. This would require the construction of
almost 2,000 miles of wall in hostile desert terrain. And Trump is not alone
in his calls for ramping up "border security." Ben Carson, the other leading
Republican candidate, has called for using drones at the border. This is all
to block out a country that we are not at war with -- and who is our third
largest trading partner in the world.
In this new short documentary,
Brave New Films exposes how the last three decades of immigration politics
in this country have created a massive payday for military contractors and
wasted millions of taxpayer dollars in
this business operation fueled by
xenophobia and greed. Should any of these new ideas of presidential
candidates become reality, the jackpots for companies will soar even higher,
as taxpayers see a larger portion of their checks going to this effort.
Segment 3: "Wealth Inequality in America "
This short video features infographics on the distribution of wealth in
America, highlighting both the inequality and the difference between our
perception of inequality and the actual numbers. The reality is often
not what we think it is.
Segment 4: "The Story of Electronics"
Segment 5: "Seeds of Freedom"
The high-tech revolution's collateral damage: 25 million tons of e-waste and
counting, poisoned workers and a public left holding the bill. Host Annie
Leonard takes viewers from the mines and factories where our gadgets begin
to the horrific backyard recycling shops in China where many end up. The
film concludes with a call for a green 'race to the top' where designers
compete to make long-lasting, toxic-free products that are fully and easily
This film, narrated by Jeremy Irons, details how seeds, which have been the
heart of traditional farming and natural biodiversity since the beginning of
agriculture, are being transformed into an expensive, patented commodity
used to monopolize the global food system.
