Author talk: David Swanson

Author David Swanson will speak at Mayday Books on Monday, August 27 from 7 to 9 pm, at 301 Cedar Ave S on the West Bank in Minneapolis.

August 27, 2018, marks 90 years since the single biggest news story of 1928, the signing by the world’s major nations of the Kellogg-Briand Pact, outlawing war. The treaty, still on the books, is named, as is Kellogg Boulevard in St. Paul, for Frank Kellogg, the only Minnesotan to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

Swanson is the author of When the World Outlawed War, as well as War Is A Lie, War Is Never Just, and numerous other books, including his latest, Curing Exceptionalism. Swanson will speak on the past, present, and future of efforts to reduce and end war. He’ll take questions and sign books. The bookstore event is sponsored by Women Against Military Madness and Mayday Books.

All Governments Lie

All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception and the Spirit of I.F. Stone will be shown on Monday, September 10 at 7 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

Independent journalists Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald, Michael Moore and others expose government lies and corporate deception, inspired by the legendary investigative journalist I.F. Stone.

All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone is a theatrical documentary created by a team of Emmy Award-winning filmmakers who subscribed to I. F. Stone’s newsletter in their teens.

This film will change the way you look at the mainstream media. Giant media conglomerates are increasingly reluctant to investigate or criticize government policies – particularly on defense, security and intelligence issues. They are ceding responsibility for holding governments and corporations accountable to the independent journalists and filmmakers who risk their careers, their freedom and their lives in war zones — to expose the truth.

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

WAMM Second Monday Movie presents The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

Monday August 13th, 2018. 7pm

4200 Cedar Ave. S Minneapolis

Follow gonzo investigative reporter Greg Palast (BBC, Rolling Stone) as he busts the New Klux Klan – the billionaire bandits who purged one million voters of color and stole the White House.

This real life detective story is told in a film noir style with cartoon animations, secret documents, hidden cameras, and a little help from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit detectives, Ice-T and Richard Belzer, Shailene Woodley, Rosario Dawson, Willie Nelson and Ed Asner. Palast and his associates expose the darkest plans of the uber-rich to steal America’s democracy.

Greg Palast is an investigative reporter for the BBC and the Guardian who busted Katherine Harris’ fake felon purge that stole the election for Bush in 2000. His work has been called “courageous reporting” (Michael Moore) that is funny, heartbreaking, and loaded with “facts like hand grenades” (John Pilger)
