Toxic Tea Film Festival – Exposing the Agenda – “A Place At The Table” (VIDEO)
Welcome to the seventh installment in our 10-week series titled “Toxic Tea Film Festival – Exposing the Agenda.” This is a joint project of Red State Dems and The Everlasting GOP Stoppers, in collaboration with Miss R*EVOLutionaries and The Beer Party.
As the very foundation of our democracy continues to be threatened by a narrow and exclusionary Tea Party faction of the extreme right-wing, we find ourselves at a point in our nations history where we can no longer be politically passive. Government gridlock has become the status quo, our national wealth is being extracted, and the middle class is shrinking. We find ourselves being represented by politicians that – supported by dark money – drive the climate change denial movement, the assault on women’s rights and LBGT rights, “right-to-work” legislation, “stand your ground” laws, de-funding public education, privatizing prisons, and a whole host of other issues that threaten the American Dream. As such, it’s imperative that we are proactive in educating the masses of what exactly is at stake.
This series is intended to be a fun, educational, and interactive way of doing just that. Consider it a large, online book club – except with movies instead.
Each weekend, we will ask that you spend an hour or two over the weekend watching a specific documentary that we have identified as critical to helping you to understand how we got to where we are. If possible, we will provide the film for you, and if not, we will point you to where you can find it. Grab your family and your friends, and make it fun. That Sunday, we will collectively use our online forums to discuss what we have learned, more closely examine some of the topics that were covered in the movie, and engage each other on how we can best fix it. Our hope is, this series will inspire you all to become more engaged in the political process, and hopefully provide you the materials and the knowledge to open some eyes around you. We are very excited about this project, and hope you will participate!
This week’s movie is titled A Place At The Table. As 50 million Americans go hungry and “compassionate conservatives” strip food stamps out of the mouths of hungry children while protecting tax cuts for obscenely wealthy corporations and individuals, this film explores why – as PBS reports – the United States, which produces more food per person than any other country in the world, still has a major problem with hunger.
From the films official website:
50 Million Americans—1 in 4 children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place at the Table shows how the issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides—as they have in the past—that ending hunger is in the best interests of us all.
