Chicago Independent Television for April: Re-Occupy Republic, Rahm the Grinch, Khader Adnan Hunger Strike
Chicago Independent Television is the monthly TV series of the Chicago Independent Media Center.
ON THE SHOW IN APRIL 2012:
* RE-OCCUPY: THE REPUBLIC STORY CONTINUES
In 2008, workers at Republic Windows and Doors occupied their plant for six days and won back a financial package that was promised to them. In 2012, workers once again occupied the same plant. We learn more in this segment from the Chicago TV show Labor Beat.
* RAHM THE GRINCH VS. OCCUPY CHICAGO
Chicago's mayor Rahm Emanuel has shown little love for Occupy Chicago or for working-class Chicagoans. In this segment, we see a film about the struggle between the Mayor and Occupy Chicago, inspired by a children's classic book.
* RAP NEWS: KHADNER ADNAN ENDS 66 DAY HUNGER STRIKE
We join with Chicago's Professor D, in a segment about a recent hunger strike over Palestinian rights.

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.
