NEWSREAL is a monthly compilation of coverage from citizen journalists (like you!) across the nation.
NEWSREAL's goals are to embolden the global movement for social, environmental, and economic justice, strengthen non-corporate communication networks, and to encourage authentic participatory democracy, one community at a time.
Each episode of NewsReal is aired on Free Speech TV every month:
Voice From North
Northern indigenous tell of signs of global warming.
Producer: Elfie and Maia Ballis http://www.sunmt.org
"Indymedia NewsReal" is a monthly joint project of Free SpeechTV (http://www.freespeech.org) and the Independent Media Center (http://www.indymedia.org/en/index.shtml ). It brings stories of progressive grassroots organizing, going on in backyards everywhere, to a national television audience. Each program covers actions taken in local communities, by ordinary people, to address critical issues like the war, air and water pollution, reproductive rights, homelessness, for-profit prisons, sweatshops, racism, police brutality, indigenous struggles, and more.
Seattle's PepperSpray Productions Video Collective contributes segments to the "NewsReal" Project. In addition, we do the dubbing/mailing of the finished "NewsReal" for community screeners each month. We also build the program's outreach by featuring the monthly "NewsReal" on "Indymedia Presents." firstname.lastname@example.org
