Jon DeLeeuw and Kara Ceriello at Not a Number Cards and Gifts will host a screening of Michael Moore’s documentary “Capitalism: A Love Story” this Sunday evening at their shop, during which they plan to announce whether Not a Number (the corporation) will run for office. The pair have been exploring the idea of Not a Number running “to show how ridiculous the whole concept is,” DeLeeuw told us.
Moore wrote in the “The Huffington Post” today that there will be more than a thousand screenings nationwide, organized by MoveOn.org. He wrote, “MoveOn.org is launching a huge new campaign to take back democracy from the corporations and lobbyists. And I’m thrilled that they’ve decided to kick it off by bringing people together to watch my film.”
Here’s the information De Leeuw and Ceriello sent to us:
Cards & Gifts will be a local participant in this weekend’s MoveOn.org national screening: Michael Moore’s documentary about the financial crisis, “Capitalism: A Love Story”. It’s this Sun. March 28, 6 pm at Not A Number, 1905 N 45th between the Guild 45th and Wallingford Center. Well-behaved dogs welcome!
The movie is more relevant than ever after the Supreme Court repealed all limits on political spending by giant corporations. Corporations can spend any amount of money this November to defeat candidates they don’t like. The movie parties give us a chance to discuss the plan to stop the corporate takeover of democracy, and you’ll meet progressives in your area and make some great new friends too.
The RSVP link says the event is full, but call Not a Number at 784-0965 to see if they’ll have extra space.
