Chicago Independent Television for November: CTU Strike Perspective, Texas Pipeline Blockade, Fracking in Illinois, Rush Limbaugh Protest
Chicago Independent Television is the monthly TV series of the Chicago Independent Media Center.
ON THE SHOW IN NOVEMBER 2012:
Inside the 2012 Chicago Teachers Union Strike
For nine days, the Chicago Teachers Union gained worldwide attention for their strike over a number of issues. In this segment we hear an in-depth perspective from a Chicago teacher who served on the union's negotiation team.
Texas Pipeline Blockade
The Keystone XL Pipeline is a proposed oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico; activists have described the pipeline as the fuse to an enormous carbon bomb. Efforts to block the pipeline's construction have escalated recently in Texas, as we see in this segment.
Fracking -- A Nightmare For Illinoisans
In this segment, we learn more about the controversial oil-extraction practice known as fracking and its impacts on the environment in central and southern Illinois.
Rush Limbaugh Protest
Last April, Chicago activists protested the radio personality Rush Limbaugh over sexist remarks he made against a women's-rights advocate. We join the protest which took place outside the Chicago radio station that airs Limbaugh's show.

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.
