The War on Democracy

The War on Democracy is John Pilger's first major film for the cinema, in a career that has produced more than 55 television documentaries. Set in Latin America and the US, it explores the historic and current relationship of Washington with countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia and Chile.

"The film tells a universal story," says Pilger, "analysing and revealing, through vivid testimony, the story of great power behind its venerable myths. It allows us to understand the true nature of the so-called war on terror".

(note: the video is 90 minutes and you can download it from Google for later viewing. It is for people who want to know what Democracy means in our world. You can click on the Google link to watch it in full screen. Sit back, relax and watch one of the most articulate documentaries ever produced)
