Story By DeeDee Halleck

For me, it started with camcorders in the 1970s. Straight out of the 60s. It was not home movies. It wasn’t like youTube. There were hardly any piano playing cats. It was the prostitutes of Lyon occupying the cathedral.[1] It was the welfare applicants of Saint Jacques looking for health care. [2] It was Skip at the 72 Democratic Convention confronting Roger Mudd and all of mainstream TV journalism.[3] It was Harriet leaving her Lanesville home and the sink full of dishes.[4] All that information. All that rage.

Early video started with collectives: sharing tools and sharing ideas. Where to put the programs? There was no internet. How to share? What about television? So we fought for the airwaves and for access to cable. In the U.S. we won cable’s PEG (Public, Education, Government) --channels and tools to make our own TV: channels in almost every major city. There were collectives producing weekly programs: Paper Tiger, Termite TV, Not Channel Zero, Whispered Media, Co-Lab TV, DIVA TV, Cast Iron TV and many other producing groups. Deep Dish TV leased commercial satellite transponders and transmitted collations of programs on racism, war, kids, women, health, censorship and art. Later we fought for access to commercial satellite channels—and won the non-commercial public transponder set asides on direct broadcast cable: Free Speech TV, Link TV and many universities were able to have national networks.

When the internet started, the collaborations went global. We made web sites and list serves replete with facts and fighters from movements across the globe: Burn.ucsd.edu, Zapatista, apc, greennet, Burmanet, McSpotlight, Witness.

By the late 1990s we realized that we were mostly fighting the same enemy: capital and the lending vultures of global capital—the World Bank, the G8, the IMF. The meetings of these groups became a place for resistance and documentation of that resistance. These encampments, the marches, the strikes, the global social forums still persist. To fight those powers we have channels and websites, transponders and servers. We share spaces both physical and virtual: Australia’s CAT, (Community Activist Technology), Engage Media, Indymedia. For me, Indymedia was infranstructure for the needed global connections.

RE: FINAL UPDATE ON CARAVAN FROM LAGOS

Hi All,

This is to inform all folks joining the caravan from Lagos that the caravan will leave exactly 7.00am in the morning of Friday 7th of August 2015. The departure point still remains the same: G.U.O Transport Park, Cele Cele Bus Stop, Isolo, Okota Rd. It is thus imperative that we arrive at the bus park as early as 6.00am in the morning.

The bus park management has a scheduled departure and we would not want to any of our folks to be left behind.

Please be advised that you should come along with your travel documents.

Be assured of my best wishes.

Regards
