Screening of “Best Democracy Money Can Buy” by Greg Palast
November 3, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm$13.50
In this new documentary, Greg Palast entertains as he exposes the billionaire bandits that are working to purge one million voters of color in November and rob them of their constitutional right to vote. I’ve heard Greg speak at two or three events in different part of the country. He’s always right on target and a good storyteller! You don’t want to miss his film!!
Award-winning investigative reporter Greg Palast is the number one enemy of Jim Crow in the 21st century. He made history when he broke the stealing of the 2000 presidential election by Bush 2, by illegally disenfranchising tens of thousands of Black voters in Florida. And Palast is back again in 2016 fighting the good fight, with a new major documentary, a new book, and major articles for Rolling Stone.
Palast is a New York Times bestselling author and an investigative journalist for the BBC and the British newspaper The Guardian. Like Michael Moore, he is also a documentary filmmaker. His reports can be seen on BBC Television Newsnight. He is the author of New York Times bestsellers, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits and Armed Bandits as well as The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
“His work is funny, heartbreaking, and loaded with facts like hand grenades,”
British writer and filmmaker John Pilger.
“Palast is astonishing, he gets the real evidence no one else has the guts to dig up.”
Vincent Bugliosi, author of None Dare Call it Treason and Helter Skelter.
Jim Hightower says Palast is “A cross between Sam Spade and Sherlock Holmes.“
“Courageous reporting.” – Michael Moore.
Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation in the US and abroad. His uncanny investigative skills as well as his no-holds-barred style have made him an anathema among magnates on four continents and a living legend among his colleagues and his devoted readership.
Greg will be here in Houston for the screening, but the screening will only happen if enough tickets are sold to pay for the cost of screening the film.
