Whose problem is it anyway? Does history matter? Should we revisit it, or should we ignore it and just "move on?" Why is "peace" not the goal? What are the two diametrically opposed views of Israel today, and why do they exist simultaneously? What does the ordinary person in the Middle East think, and does it even matter? What are the options today, and where do we go from here?

Contact: 651-695-1966 The Ecology Democracy Party gubernatorial candidate KEN PENTEL is campaigning by bicycle and canoe through your area and is arriving for interviews from June 28 through June 30. Please contact David Luce, Advance Team Coordinator, at 651-695-1966 or advanceteam [at] kenpentel.org to schedule an interview. The Ecology Democracy Party grew from the already flourishing Ecology Democracy Network, established by Ken Pentel over the last two years while bicycling over 6,000 miles grass roots organizing around the State. The Ecology Democracy Party was established to transition the thinking and action in our culture from a human-centered to an ecological-centered approach in relation to how we manage our relationship with our home, planet Earth. The Ecology Democracy Party will restore a harmonious and sustainable relationship with our natural environment through a structural change of the fundamentals of Minnesota Government. This change is to be brought about through the following three Ecology Democracy Party mandates: Ecology Democracy Party mandates: * Establishing an ecology-based economy for Minnesota * Implementing proportional representation for the State House * Removing Big Money and Corporate Interference in Minnesota Government Ken Pentel quote: "The people who mobilize and vote for Erin and me should know that when elected, our three mandates will form the basis of how we will govern. These are: the establishment of an ecology-based economy for Minnesota, implementation of proportional representation for the State House, and the removal of private and corporate money in the people's government of Minnesota. In the course of this campaign and beyond, it will be the responsibility of the people in the field who mobilized, and all those who will vote for us, to give us the backbone to see this through. We know Minnesotans are up to the challenge and we look forward to earning and maintaining their trust and confidence." Prepared to Govern, Ken Pentel, 2010 Ecology Democracy Party Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Pentel is a Minnesota native and former Green Party gubernatorial candidate with 11 years of work experience with Greenpeace and 12 years of work experience developing the Minnesota Green Party.

The film, produced by award- winning filmmaker Sherry Jones, draws on interviews, archival footage, and recently declassified documents to piece together the development and dissemination of torture tactics from Bagram in Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib - and the document trail leads right to the top of the chain of command."
