FREEDOM CAN’T BE FENCED - SAGE and the Anti-Corporate Globalization Movement

TREASON - The Corporate Attack on America

This forty-three minute documentary film examines the treasonous behavior of US-based transnational corporations in undermining the efforts of organized labor and contributing to the disintegration of communities across America. It specifically looks at how free trade agreements such as NAFTA and the proposed FTAA benefit powerful corporations at the expense of workers rights, family farmers, consumers, and the environment. The film includes interviews with rank and file union members on the streets of Miami at the November 2003 FTAA demonstrations, along with students, local union leaders, sociology professors from St. Lawrence University and SUNY New Paltz, and representatives from Public Citizen, Global Exchange, the Nicaragua Network, and the AFL-CIO. Produced by Matt Gaines and Ken Gould. Total Running Time: 43 minutes.

8:40 – 9:15 pm
Question and Answer period with Co-Producer Ken Gould
Gould teaches courses at St. Lawrence University focusing on globalization, political mobilization and socio-environmental dynamics, and is co-author of Environment and Society: The Enduring Conflict, 1994 and co-author of Local Environmental Struggles: Citizen Activism in the Treadmill of Production, 1996. Gould’s work draws on his personal experience as an activist in the anti-nuclear movement, the anti-apartheid/divestment movement, environmental justice struggles, and the anti-corporate globalization movement.

SAGE Pictures is an independent non-profit media group composed of students, alumni, and faculty devoted to addressing the impacts of corporate globalization on issues of organized labor, workers rights, environmental protection, democracy, and racial and social justice through the strategic use of film.
