21st Century Wire says…

Each week, 21WIRE will curate a series of informative documentary films designed to educate and enlighten our readers about many of the key issues facing people worldwide.

‘The War on Democracy’ is one of award-winning Australian filmmaker John Pilger’s most intimate film creations. Pilger takes an inside look at the Hugo Chavez epoch in Venezuela, the CIA coup and fascist takeover in Chile, as well as the American derailment of El Salvador, Guatemala and Bolivia. Pilger also traces the modern origins of the ‘death squad’. The film delicately chronicles the issues facing the people of South America before, during and after the brutal CIA years.

This film, in its entirety, is not freely available online, but here are three key excerpts; a 10 min, 2 min, and 16 sec clip, which will provide a good entrée into this brilliant production:



Run time: 1:34:00
Directors: John Pilger, Christopher Martin
Producers: Christopher Martin, Wayne Young

United Kingdom/ Australia (2007)
