“HEIST: Who Stole the American Dream,” will be shown on Sunday, February 24th at 7:00 p.m. at the Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine, 96 Harlow Street, Bangor. The showing is free and open to the public and will be followed by a discussion.
HEIST traces the 2008 worldwide economic collapse to a l971 secret memo written by future Supreme Court Justice, Lewis Powell, at the behest of the US Chamber of Commerce. HEIST exposes the systemic implementation of Powell’s memo by both U.S. political parties culminating in the deregulation of industry, outsourcing of jobs, regressive taxation, and the continued dismantling of the American middle class. HEIST provides viewers with a clear, concise explanation of what we need to do to restore representative democracy. (http://www.heist-the movie.com)
