See “We Will Not be Silenced” by Gigi Gaston: “A Documentary About Voter Fraud in the Democratic Presidential Primary 2008”

We are Americans, not angry liberals.

As Americans, we expect certain liberties and rights that were granted us by our forefathers, who wrote documents like the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. “We the people” expect that these fundamental rights will always be protected. However, in the current Democratic Presidential Primary, this has not been the case. We believe The Democratic National Committee (DNC) made a grave error by depriving American voters of their choice of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. Senator Clinton, by all accounts, except caucuses, won the Primary Election and, therefore, should be the 2008 Democratic Nominee. That didn’t happen, due largely to illegitimate and illegal acts. We have interviews of many accounts from caucus states recounting threats, intimidation, lies, stolen documents, falsified documents, busing in voters in exchange for paying for “dinners,” etc. There are at least 2000 complaints, in Texas alone, of irregularities directed towards the Obama Campaign, that have lead to a very fractured and broken Democratic Party.

This documentary is about the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign. We the People have made this film. Democrats have sent in their stories from all parts of America. We want to be heard and let the country know how our party has sanctioned the actions of what we feel are Obama Campaign “Chicago Machine” dirty politics. We believe this infamous campaign of “change” from Chicago encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote, which is, of course, all documented in “We Will Not Be Silenced.”

“We Will Not Be Silenced” is about the people who fight back by simply telling their stories: Teachers, professors, civil rights activists, lawyers, janitors, physicists, ophthalmologists, accountants, mathematicians, retirees – all bound together by their love of America and Democracy. They will tell us their experiences and how they feel betrayed by their own party. They will discuss how their party has disenfranchised them and how, when they saw and reported multiple instances of fraud, everyone turned a blind eye. Rather than support and protect the voices and votes of its loyal members, the DNC chose to sweep this under the rug by looking the other way, or using ceremony and quasi-investigations to assuage angry voters. It is our opinion there never before has been such a “dirty” campaign; the campaign that has broken the hearts and spirits of American voters, who once believed in the Democractic voting system.

We are not angry liberals; we are disappointed Democrats, who love our country and feel the DNC needs to stand for truth, care about its voter base and stop committing actions worse than what we only thought possible of the worst Republicans. The DNC and the Obama Campaign need to be held accountable for the catastrophe of the 2008 Democratic Primary. We must right their wrongs…after all, this is America, the Land of the Free, where every American has the right to a fair, honest voting process, and to have his or her vote counted…

We Will Not Be Silenced

With three screenplays sold to major companies and a fourth, “Madame Lupescu,”optioned by Imagine Entertainment, screenwriter/director Gigi Gaston is now well on her way to becoming one of the most sought after writer/filmmakers in the business. Last year she directed her first feature, The Cream Will Rise, a dark, surprising documentary about controversial singer/songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins, which has been screened at film festivals around the country receiving excellent reviews. This led to Gaston’s directing her first music video — Olivia Newton John’s updated version of her hit song “I Honestly Love You.” When Gaston was sixteen, director George Cukor, a family friend, encouraged her to pursue an acting career; she was never able to commit to acting because she already knew she wanted to write and direct. However, as a teenager she did pursue a career as an Olympic athlete, becoming a champion jump rider, and later used this experience as the basis for her first screenplay. After teaching herself the fundamentals of writing from Syd Field’s book “Screenplay,” Gaston wrote“Like A Lady,” in 1988, in between jumping events. This autobiographical story is about a tomboy Olympic athlete, who asks a drag-queen to teach her how to “act like a lady.”

Gaston will executive produce Mockingbird, her adaptation of Walter Tevis’s science-fiction novel about a love triangle in a drug-ridden future, which Oscar-winner Steve Tisch will produce. Unreliably Yours, a wild comedy which has been sold to Initial Entertainment, shows the other side of Gaston’s sensibility: it’s about a wife and mistress who hate each other, but join forces to sabotage the man they share when he goes on a trip to Mexico with their new “replacement.”

If Frank Capra’s films sharpened Gaston’s sense of screen comedy when she was growing up, her heart belonged to historical epics like Dr. Zhivago, Lawrence of Arabia and Greta Garbo’s Queen Christina. Madame Lupescu, which she first brought to Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment, is her first opportunity to write a story which draws on her fascination with historical subject matter. A drama set in Romania between 1900 and 1940, Madame Lupescu tells the story of crown Prince Carol II of Romania – monarch in an anti-Semitic country – who abdicated his trhone for the love of Magda Lupesco, a Jewish commoner. This summer Gaston will travel to Romania to extensively research this project.

A native of Greenwich, Connecticut, Gaston began her athletic career when she began riding at age three. She moved to Los Angeles with her family five years later, and in 1976 became the youngest rider to win an Olympic competition at the Washington International Horse Show. A top contender for the U.S. Olympic team in 1980, she spent years training during winter sessions for the event, but suffered disappointment when President Carter announced that the U.S. would boycott the Games in 1980. After winning every top award an amateur jumper can win, Gaston retired in 1983, but made a “comeback” appearance at the L.A. Forum in 1989, emerging as a ranked champion in every division.
