About the Film:
Where To Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling and subversive comedy in which Academy Award-winning director Moore, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world – they’re just waiting to be co-opted.

The film was written, produced and directed by Michael Moore, Produced by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.

No tickets required. Events are free and open to the public (donations kindly accepted to cover expenses).

Downloadables:  (Click to open. Save to your computer, or forward links).  Please help us get the word out – Thanks!

About WAmend:
YesOn735-Logo-Square-LgWAmend’s mission with Initiative 735 is to put Washington State on record as calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The amendment would settle for once and for all that Constitutional rights belong only to individual people, NOT corporations; spending money is NOT free speech; governments are empowered to regulate political contributions and expenditures to prevent undue influence; and political contributions and expenditures must be promptly disclosed to the public. This amendment is needed to win back a democracy that works for ALL Americans, not just the wealthiest few. Learn more at http://www.wamend.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/WAmend.org/.
