ON THE SHOW IN MARCH 2012:
* M20 PROTEST LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT
On March 20, 2003, more than 17,000 peace protesters took over Lake Shore Drive in one of the legendary protests in Chicago history. That protest faced mass arrest and detention, and a lawsuit which took nearly nine years to resolve. We’ll learn more about what happened in this segment.
* CHICAGO CITY COUNCIL PASSES ANTI-PROTESTER ORDINANCE
Chicago’s new mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago City Council recently passed a controversial ordinance making it harder to hold public protests in Chicago. We’ll learn more about the ordinance in this segment from the group Occupy Travels.
We’ll also learn more about the recent controversial Chicago anti-protester ordinance in this rap video from Chicago performer Professor D, and in this selection of excerpts from press conferences with Chicago political activists.
* OCCUPY NEW HOUSING IN MINNEAPOLIS
The Occupy movement nationwide has helped reclaim abandoned space for public use. In this segment, we’ll join one recent effort in Minneapolis to reclaim an abandoned building.

WHO WE ARE:
We are the Chicago Indymedia Video Collective. We operate along the same lines as Indymedia, fostering the same ideals and processes. We are a collective of media producers, activists, videographers and concerned citizens offering your alternative to mainstream corporate coverage of local and international events, movements and expression. In the summer of 2003 the idea of an independent television show, free from corporate bias and serving the needs of the community, was conceived. Chicago Independent Television is the result of that movement.
Our mission is to provide YOUR CORPORATE NEWS ALTERNATIVE.
PLEASE JOIN US!
Our Video Collective typically meets at 7PM every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month. We encourage individuals interested in contributing to the show to attend a meeting. Note: We often change meeting venues, so please contact us for details if you want to attend a meeting.
