The People Speak
The People Speak … continues
The People Speak … conclusion
More from Howard Zinn
“Democracy is not a Spectator Sport.”
THE PEOPLE SPEAK [Video] gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice.
Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, THE PEOPLE SPEAK gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice.
THE PEOPLE SPEAK illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.
More from Bill Moyers:
Citizen Protests (perhaps happening in a neighborhood near you?)
The People Speak out, and will keep on Speaking …
Question is, Whether or not the “Powers that Be” care to Listen?
Or are they too busy to be bothered
by all our “petty annoyances”?
Or are they too fat and comfortable,
to really “feel our Pain”?
Are the “Powers that Be” TOO fundamentally entrenched,
to ever allow any substantial, real Change —
that actually might HELP Working (and Non-Working) People?
AND SO …
The People Speak out, and will keep on Speaking out …
Until those Powerful-Reps-that-be, those who WORK for US, by the way —
Until THEY bother to hear … what WE are saying.
