War on Democracy 2007
It's no secret that the United States has virtually enslaved the economies of Latin America for its own interests. Reporter-filmmaker Pilger forcefully examines how this policy has undermined democracy and liberty. And how the people are fighting back.

Pilger starts in Venezuela, a hot spot for populist Latino politics. In an extensive and intriguingly casual interview with President Chavez, the film traces the country's recent history, including the political and economic interests that have tried repeatedly to undermine Chavez's efforts to improve health care and education for the poor people in his country. "We don't want wealth," he says. "We want life with dignity." And yet the US government helped organise a violent coup against him, and continues to use false media reports to paint him as a communist villain.

The film also explores situations in Guatemala, Chile and Bolivia over the past 50 years, during which time America has backed some 50 coup attempts in the name of preserving "US interests".
