ON THE SHOW IN JULY 2012: NATO SUMMIT 2012 CONTINUED
We devote this episode to continuing coverage of the protests and events surrounding the Chicago 2012 NATO summit.
Chicago Teachers Union march
On May 23, 2012, the Chicago Teachers Union held a massive downtown rally and march demanding an end to school cuts, privatization and union-busting tactics. Here's a look at the protest:
The "NATO 3"
Last may, tens of thousands of protesters hit the streets in response to the NATO Summit being held in Chicago. Three of the protesters were being brought up on charges of terrorism -- charges that many see as questionable. Here is the story of the "NATO 3" as told by one anti-NATO protester.
Joe Iosbaker on the NATO Protest
As the NATO summit wound down, Chicago activist Joe Iosbaker talked to reporters about the violent police response to the protest. Here are some excerpts.
Just before the NATO protest in Chicago in May, the Pritzker Military Library hosted a debate on the legitimacy of NATO. Here are some excerpts.

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.
