Film-  American Empire:  An Act of Collective Madness
(THIS EVENT  POSTPONED from 7/15 and will be rescheduled  soon!)
Bethlehem Town Hall
445 Delaware Ave, Delmar

The documentary , American Empire: An Act of Collective Madness (2012, 96 minutes),  directed by Patrea Patrick,  covers a lot of ground, including: the Federal Reserve, U.S. foreign policy, corporate collusion and destructive agriculture. Included in the film, are interviews with Tariq Ali, G. Edward Griffin, Vandana Shiva, Gerald Celente, John Perkins and  Frances Morre Lappe.  "American Empire: An Act of Collective Madness" sheds light on the manner that the corporate controlled nation is holding out the genetically modified carrot to the masses rather than the flame of truth. ~ Huffington Post.   Join us.  Information 466-1192.
