Occupy The Media - TPPA

Project 2012-11-21 00:20:54 +1300

The international Occupy movement has propelled citizen journalism and the art of livestreaming, into the mainstream.

Chipping away at the corporate media block, the audiences are now transmigrating, as they witness firsthand the profound chasm between new media platforms, and old.

At the forefront of Kiwi citizen journalism, Occupy NZ has taken the opportunity to invite three of the global movement's best livestreamers to New Zealand - @CourtneyOccupy, @PFailBlog & @OccupyEye - to provide comprehensive independent media coverage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement "secret" trade negotiations, December 3-12. 

Occupy NZ & Occupy Auckland Media Team members will provide free accommodation & food, love and care to these citizen journalists.

The money we need to raise will cover the cost of airfares/international transit for Courtney, Matt and Nate, who will be travelling from Canada and the United States respectively, to attend.

Further funds are required for international roaming charges, production expenses and domestic travel for the team, to both Wellington & Christchurch.

What is the TPPA & what does it mean for NZ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JwqMp1ykbW8

Travel Agenda:

December 4: Wellington, NZ to cover the "Rally in Opposition to the TPPA - Dont Let Government Sign Away Our Future! Midland Park, cnr Lambton Quay and Johnston Street"
December 7: Auckland, NZ to cover "Aotearoa Is Not For Sale - #D7 - The Big Push Against Privatisation"
December 8: Auckland, NZ to cover "Aotearoa's Not for Sale - #D8 - SHUT DOWN THE TPPA"
December 10: Hikoi to Christchurch to gather witness first hand the state of affairs on the ground and amplify the voices of the residents. 

All media created will be broadcast to a substantial international audience and pushed out through countless avenues of the global Occupy network.

These journalists are the cream of the new media crop and the benefits to our country, to the field of journalism, to the historical record and the resulting global solidarity, are immeasurable.

It is our absolute privilege to be able to extend an invitation for them to attend these events and participate in promoting New Zealand on the global stage.

Your donation will help produce:

* Multiple Livestreams of the event, rebroadcast at no charge to viewers, through Global Revolution Live ( www.globalrevolution.tv ), the most famous and comprehensive source for live action streams
* Livetweets of the above events from multiple prominent publicly viewable Twitter accounts
* Liveblogging and blog commentary on at least 3 prominent Occupy blogs; numerous others will reblog the material worldwide, free for all readers
* Extensive photojournalism

OccupyEye Confirms Attendance

02/12/2012 at 9:06 AM

Thanks to an angel investor, OccupyEye (Nate) from OWS NYC/DC is now confirmed to be on his way here to cover the week's actions!

This is fantastic news and a huge relief, however we still need other angels who understand the enormous importance of this opportunity & can help fund airline tickets/streaming costs for CourtneyOccupy & Political Fail Blog!

Please contact us at [email protected] if you are unable to pledge but want to make a private arrangement to help these deserving citizen journalists whistleblow on the TPPA, internationally! Thank you!
