Part 10 of the 10-part “Gulf Crisis TV Project” series. The billions of dollars spent on mass destruction in the war is paralleled to the decline of the US economy, budget cuts in labor, healthcare, housing and education. It examines the military treatment of pubic lands within the US, the ecological devastation that occurs in the production of weapons and the grassroots movements efforts to change this nation’s priorities. An accelerated decline of the US economy, labor, housing and healthcare lie in the wake of the first Gulf War.
“The Gulf Crisis TV Project” series has become a historic testament to the potential of media activism. Hundreds of producers, media arts centers, activist and community groups, public access cable stations and PBS affiliates worked together under the concept of “America’s Angriest Videos”. The series presents debate, analysis, performance and activisms from across the United States and abroad in response to the first Gulf War. Half of the series was produced in 1990 and aired nationally before the war began in an effort to open the debate and stop the imminent war in the Gulf. The second half of the series produced in 1991, was aired during and after the war. It further explores the issues examined in the first series and looks at the war’s devastating impact.
