    To mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day much has been made of the ‘liberation’ won by the allies, the so-called ‘freedom loving democracies’ against evil Germany. In this lecture arranged and filmed as part of WORLDwrite’s multi-media project on the life and works of C.L.R. James we learn this simple moral tale of good versus evil is not true. Despite the horrific loss of millions of lives in the war sacrificed ‘for freedom’ millions of people were not liberated but subject to the British colonial jackboot and in the USA brutal repression and racial segregation. Lecturer and author James Heartfield explains C.L.R James’ love of American civilisation yet opposition to the war and why he was not alone. C.L.R James provides a lesson for us all he suggests, that is we should not believe the official view or the radical view, just because it is often repeated doesn’t mean it’s true.

          "Everybody Knows" is a song from Keegan McInroe's second album "From the Wall & In the City." The song was recut for this video. Animation by Undertoon Sale. "Everybody Knows" Everybody knows there’s a war going on. Everybody knows there’s a war. Everybody knows about the kids that don’t come home. Yeah, I heard it’s gonna be a long war. Everybody knows about the bodies in the streets. Everybody knows there’s a war. Everybody knows about the mothers and the beasts Bloodying the Babylon floor. But could you help us see the reason? ‘Cause it sure ain’t to keep the peace. For every civilian that we’re slaying, There’s a war-torn family rising up in hate. Everybody knows there’s a war going on. Everybody knows there’s a war. Everybody knows about the money being made By the men behind the closed, locked doors. Everybody knows we like meddling in affairs. Everybody knows there’s a war. Near a thousand different bases in a hundred-fifty countries Makes you wonder what we’re staying for. Can you imagine what we’d do here If some foreign power occupied our soil, And tried to tell us how to live here, As their bombs ripped through our boys and girls? Everybody knows there’s a war going on Everybody knows there’s a war. Everybody knows you gotta reap what you sow, So get in line for the fruits of war! Everybody knows it’s the Christian thing to do. Everybody knows there’s a war. Why Jesus Christ, Himself, would probably blow ‘em straight to Hell, While pissing on the golden rule! And it don’t matter who's in office. Or are you still too blind to see? This war machine rolls on undaunted. How long before you think it rolls over you and me? http://www.keeganmcinroe.com http://undertoon.weebly.com

            Team Little Known Stories called upon good friend and videographer Tynz to capture Principal Photography. We all knew, with such a tiny production team, we'd be running around like crazy and wouldn't remember the two days we shot the film. So Tynz and Producer Bri worked together to create a wonderful memoriam, that perfectly captures the spirit and essence of our production. #letsallbehuman
