Just released today: Big Easy to Big Empty DVD– the real story of how the White House drowned New Orleans and holds it underwater today. Donate at least $30 (tax-deductible) to our investigative reporting foundation and I’ll send you, signed, the one-hour-plus broadcast. The DVD includes Amy Goodman and me on New Orleans as the front line of the class war.
On August 22, my producer and I were charged by the Department of Homeland Security with violating anti-terror laws — we upset them for filming the bad guys. While the charges were dropped (whew!) we still have the film — originally made for Democracy Now! and LinkTV.
Enjoy watching Bush’s crony contractors, the ones whose “evacuation” let the city drown, trying to grab our camera and call in “security.” Discover from an insider how the Bush White House withheld the information that the levees were about to burst. Meet Malik Rahim and his insurgent guerrilla band of builders fighting to take back the city from the developer sharks. Follow us as we break into the housing sealed up to prevent the poor from returning.
Support our work, cover our legal, insurance and film costs, take a tax deduction and give this gift from “The City That Care Forgot.” Just tell me the name of the lucky recipient in the “message” box and I’ll sign it to them at www.palastinvestigativefund.org/19.
