Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips review the new DVD release of the Oliver Stone' and Peter Kiznick's The Untold History of the United States. Deeply researched by an American University team of historians, the ten hour Showtime documentary seriesis a provocative challenge to the status quo of American history in the tradition of Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United State. The film series covers the rise of the American Empire and national security state from the late nineteenth century through the Obama administration.
On the February 7th for the Project Censored Show on Pacifica Radio, Mickey Huff with Peter Phillips review the issues around two important State Crimes Against Democracy the JFK Assassination and 9/11. Both have serious factual errors in the US government’s official explanation for what happened. Research on both has been under-minded by negative labeling these State Crimes as conspiracy theory.
In the Project Censored show this week Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips focus on nonviolent resistance to US imperial policies around the world. Their first guest is School of the Americas Watch founder Fr. Roy Bourgeois, where they discuss upcoming events and actions on that front; then, recently they caught up with Prof. Peter Kuznick, co-author with Oliver Stone of Untold History of the United States, who talk to us about efforts to resist ongoing US imperialism with an update on what’s happening in Japan; and they close the hour discussing the annual San Francisco State University series the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence, joined by event organizer and instructor Kenn Burrows along with Renee Soule to learn more about the weekly events planned that run from now through April 22nd.
