August Indymedia Newsreal
by Joe La Sac
The Indymedia Newsreal is one of the television shows I help produce and it was in full effect for August. Sorry I wasn’t able to post this any time sooner. This episode has some really good shows.
August 2008 Indymedia Newsreal runsheet:

NewsReal’s goals are to embolden the global movement for social, environmental, and economic justice, strengthen non-corporate communication networks, and to encourage authentic participatory democracy, one community at a time.
Each program covers actions taken in local communities, by ordinary people, to address critical issues like the war, air and water pollution, reproductive rights, homelessness, for-profit prisons, sweatshops, racism, police brutality, indigenous struggles, and more.
Public Access producers, community screeners, and IMCs (Independent Media Centers) are encouraged to screen or air NewsReal. To obtain the show on a regular basis, please contact Pepperspray Productions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
