Pay 2 Play
PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play system, wherein politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make.
Discussion afterwards will focus on PAY 2 PLAY as a guide to how Maryland citizens can take back our democracy. From activists of Maryland Committee to Amend and Get Money Out Maryland, we will hear about the Maryland movement promoting a Constitutional Amendment to establish that corporations are not people, and money is not speech. THE 2015 MARYLAND LEGISLATURE WILL BE DEBATING A RESOLUTION FOR SUCH AN AMENDMENT. Its sponsors need widespread support.
The Reel & Meal series is a collaboration of three Greenbelt groups concerned about social justice, environmental and animal rights issues– Green Vegan Networking, Beaverdam Creek Watershed Watch Group and Prince George’s County Peace & Justice Coalition.
