Beyond the Headlines of the Ferguson Story
This week on the "The Laura Flanders Show" we talk about making movies about systems, not gunshots with one of the directors of the documentary "Whose Streets?" As the news cameras left Ferguson, Missouri, after the police killing of Michael Brown, Sabaah Folayan and her team stayed on to document what happens to people subjected to police violence as a matter of routine. And an F Word from me on surveillance. If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention and if you are, well the feds know about it.
This week on "The Laura Flanders Show," an urgent conversation about media diversity and our lack of it. We can do better, and we must. This episode features Joe Amditis, associate director of the Center for Cooperative Media in Montclair, New Jersey, and Dru Oja Jay, a long time independent media activist and hacker.
This week on the show, Patri Ramirez Gonzalez from the Puerto Rico/Detroit Solidarity Exchange Network talks about grassroots plans to save family farmers and the ecosystem in Puerto Rico, and Trishala Deb, Asia regional director for Thousand Currents, a grant-making organization with partners across the world, shares hard won lessons from grassroots activists in Asia.
