The Coalition to Restore Democracy presents Shadows of Liberty

Wednesday, July 16, 6:30pm
Century 12 Evanston, Illinois
Tickets: $11.00 General

The Coalition to Restore Democracy is a non-partisan grassroots alliance of individuals and over 20 organizations fighting the corrupting influence of unregulated, undisclosed big money in politics from individual, corporate or other sources. We've been successful in getting the Illinois legislature to pass a resolution calling on Congress to overturn Citizens United, conducted successful ballot questions in townships, the City of Chicago and other jurisdictions. We have also sponsored events and forums to educate the public on this critical issue. We are all volunteers and would really appreciate contributions to help us continue our work.

Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control.

Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values.

In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone.

Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? We're left in no doubt - media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental.
