Directed by:
Jesse Peretz &
Clay Tarver

Produced by:
Crossroads Films

LAST UPDATED: November 1, 2004

THE ISSUES BEHIND THIS AD:
THE ENVIRONMENT

George W. Bush has done more than any modern President to destroy our natural environment.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more than 120 million Americans live in areas with unhealthy air.  And not all pollution is visible to the naked eye. Unseen toxic substances including mercury, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, arsenic, and lead pass from the air we breathe into the water we drink and the food we eat. Today, even in many places where the air might seem relatively clean, the oceans, rivers, and groundwater reveal dangerously high toxin levels.

Director'S NOTE:
I didn't vote in 2000. So I'll try to be nice. George Bush's legacy will be that he got me and millions like me off their butts. Not just back interested in politics, but participating in America. That's why I made this ad.

Every week from now until the election, MoveOn.org Political Action will announce a new grassroots initiative in its campaign to elect John Kerry, paired with one of the 10 Weeks ads.

The ads that make up the 10 Weeks campaign include the work of notable American film directors and actors including: Matt Damon, Rob Reiner, Richard Linklater, Scarlett Johanssen, Kevin Bacon, Al Franken, Rebecca Romijn, Martin Sheen, Margaret Cho, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream), Donal Logue, Ed Asner, Charlie Fisher (Bush in 30 Seconds Ad Contest Winner) Moby, John Sayles (Silver City), Allison Anders, Illeana Douglas, Ione Skye, and many others.

Every ad in this campaign bears the unique handprint of the directors and artists who created them. But they’re unified by one thing: unseating President Bush in November. That’s the whole reason behind this campaign and why we’re so grateful to have this unprecedented caliber of talent behind this cause, working side by side with MoveOn members to take back our country.

The 10 Weeks Ad Campaign was created and directed by Bush in 30 Seconds co-creator and MoveOn.org Political Action staff member Laura Dawn, along with MoveOn.org Political Action Executive Director Eli Pariser, and Jeffrey Witte. A wonderful group of film community professionals served on an Advisory and Action Committee: special thanks to Nelson George, Robert Greenwald, Ted Hope, Eva Kolodner, Steven Kotler, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte, Liz Manne, Yael Melamede, Barbara Moss, James Schamus, & Catherine Tait.

Privacy Policy

We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission.

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.

Sending Emails Via MoveOn.org Political Action

In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to the President, legislators, and other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool.
