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.
