 How have powerful Americans convinced their fellow citizens to support policies beneficial only to the wealthy? Why have so many given up on public education, safe food and safe streets, living wages – even on democracy itself? 

 

Kill it to Save it lays bare the hypocrisy of US political discourse by documenting the story of capitalism’s triumph over democracy. 

 

As the Progressive Left tries to understand how President Trump came to power, Corey Dolgon documents his historical, political and cultural road map. Dolgon argues that American citizens now accept policies that destroy the public sector and promote political stories that feel right “in the gut”, regardless of science or facts.

'Black Lives Matter' was the message advocated Saturday (1-17-2015) by the hundreds who rallied in Austin, TX and across the country. They began at the Martin Luther King Jr. statue on the East Mall of the University of Texas campus. Their mission was to march to the Capitol to protest police brutality. Walking a mile didn't take the breath away from these demonstrators, who stormed the Texas State Capitol building Saturday afternoon. They're a group that's calling for an end to police brutality and for the firings of both the Austin Chief of Police and a Houston Police officer, who shot an unarmed black man. "The first part in making an impression in making a difference, is that we have to show unity," said activist Treasje Mitchell. "We have to let them know that it's not just the young black people that this is effecting." Similar protests have happened around the country recently. They came in wake of the high-profile deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York City at the hands of police officers. Filmed / Edited by Jeffry Zavala & Grace Alfar.
