"Taking Liberties": Previews 5 June, opens 8 June
« on: May 27, 2007, 01:18:40 am »

The shocking truth about the erosion of our fundamental civil liberties by Tony Blair’s government will be exposed this summer in TAKING LIBERTIES, released in UK cinemas by Revolver Entertainment June 8th 2007.

Right to Protest, Right to Freedom of Speech. Right to Privacy. Right not to be detained without charge, Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Prohibition from Torture. TAKING LIBERTIES will reveal how these six central pillars of liberty have been systematically destroyed by New Labour, and the freedoms of the British people stolen from under their noses amidst a climate of fear created by the media and government itself.

TAKING LIBERTIES uncovers the stories the government don’t want you to hear – so ridiculous you will laugh, so ultimately terrifying you will want to take action. Teenage sisters detained for 36 hours for a peaceful protest; an RAF war veteran arrested for wearing an anti-Bush and Blair T-shirt; an innocent man shot in a police raid; and a man held under house arrest for two years, after being found innocent in court. Ordinary law-abiding citizens being punished for exercising their ‘rights’ – rights that have been fought for over centuries, and which seem to have been extinguished in a decade.

Opens across the country on 8th June.

Previews in 10 venues on 5th June:

Ritzy, Brixton
Greenwich Picturehouse

Could we get it in Swindon?  Who knows anything about organising film showings?

If the big cinemas don't pick it up then the Arts Centre might. Failing that, the Socialist Unity film club might be persuaded to show it once the DVD comes out.
We are all in this together, but some of us are more in it than others (with apologies to George Orwell)
