This new film by Kevin P. Miller exposes imminent dangers posed by CAFTA, Codex, and the WTO, and urges people to action. A new documentary by International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller, We Become Silent has taken the world by storm via the Internet – with more than 10,000 viewings in less than two days. It can be seen at http://www.welltv.com/.
International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller announced the release of a new documentary about the threat to freedom of choice in health care. We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests and giant food companies — through the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), Codex Alimentarius, the European Union, the WTO, and others — to limit the public’s access to herbs, vitamins and other therapies.
We Become Silent is narrated by Dame Judi Dench, one of Britain’s most distinguished actresses.
“I am releasing a 30 minute version of We Become Silent because it is vital to engage the worldwide public about the dangers of CAFTA, the EU Food Supplements Directive, the WTO, and the Codex Alimentarius Commission, which is meeting in Italy,” said Miller. “If we don’t stand up to Congress, the unelected bureaucrats serving on these trade commissions, and governments everywhere, our freedoms will be lost. It is now up to Congress to stop CAFTA from becoming law. If we do not act together — immediately — we will see a restrictive European Union-styled multi-government unveiled in our hemisphere.” [Note: the Senate approved CAFTA while the House has yet to vote].
We Become Silent features two Congressman who have a philosophical divide on free trade, but agree entirely on the dangers of CAFTA, the WTO, and Codex. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) speak powerfully in the film about how Americans are lured with false promises of free trade as “good for democracy.” In fact, say the Congressmen, sovereign rights are being usurped by these secretive trade bodies, and the only beneficiaries have been multinational corporate interests. They tell a frightening story of how America has become answerable to the WTO and how health freedoms and personal sovereignty are being crushed under the weight of multinational corporate greed.
We Become Silent also highlights actor Mel Gibson, in addition to the only known video from inside a Codex meeting. It also shows exclusive interviews with delegates to the Codex Alimentarius Commission, U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials, and many of the best-known health freedom advocates from around the world. This film is a powerful statement about the dominance of multinational corporations over personal freedoms — and the challenges consumers face in trying to repel these monoliths from their daily lives.
We Become Silent will air in the USA on WorldLink Television (25 million US homes) and Mr. Miller is aggressively courting UK, Canadian and European TV networks as well.
More than 10,000 people have viewed the film — in its’ first two days on the Internet — at http://www.welltv.com/.
