We’re putting the Cold War on trial…

ROBER SCHEER, TRUTHDIG
We consider the Cold War to be our nation’s 3rd, and as-of-yet,unspoken crime, after the genocide of Native Americans and the enslavement of African peoples. Our mission is to begin exposing U.S. crimes of the Cold War, and to show how today’s foreign and domestic violence and injustice are intimately tied up in the historic perpetration of the Cold War.
“I think it’s a great idea! Ideologically, it’s right on.”
–Oliver Stone on the Cold War Truth Commission

“Are you now or have you ever been”…discounted and ridiculed for your ideals and activism, or called a “Red” or a “Communist” or a “Socialist” in order to intimidate and discredit your ideas or your solutions to today’s domestic or international problems?…You are not alone. In fact, you are part of a 150 year-long drama of U.S. red-bating, illegality, and anti-communist hysteria. A history, that if understood, can help us unravel and understand both today’s domestic and international events.
Come spend the day while we film putting “The Cold War on Trial!” Scholars and citizen testimonials will help us learn the history of the Cold War, and its relevance to U.S. political corruption and to today’s global chaos…Robert Scheer will be our Keynote Speaker. Distinguished panelists on: CIA-backed global interventions of the Cold War; McCarthyism and the crushing of labor and the left in the U.S.; the Cold War nuclear legacy; Hollywood and the blacklist; the “Red Scare” of the 1930’s; and the red-baiting of social activists as far back as 1850!
