http://ourfuture.org interviews Andrew Cockburn, who with his wife, Leslie, investigate the roots of the mortgage crisis in their documentary "American Casino." The video details the fraudulent and unethical practices among the nation's top financial institutions that has led to record numbers of foreclosures and has devastated communities. Cockburn says it is critical for Congress to pass a consumer financial protection bill to prevent the practices that led to the current crisis.
"American Casino" will debut in Chicago August 14. Americans for Financial Reform (http://ourfinancialsecurity.org), a coalition that includes the Campaign for America's Future, plans to use the documentary as a teaching and mobilization tool to promote changes in the mortgage lending industry.
