In partnership with FilmOn Networks, the National Convention PBC and a new union of the groups Occupy Television, ArticleV.org, and the National General Assembly, have launched Occupy Television, a free 24/7 online television channel. The new outlet consolidates all previous sites providing Occupy news and commentary in order to provide access to the maximum amount of people around the world.
There is no more visceral demonstration of the importance of the principles behind Occupy — and the need for independent control of the movement’s own messages — then the complete failure of the police state in Ferguson, Missouri and its violent behavior toward the media.
Occupy Television’s goal is to circumvent mainstream media, with its multitude of conflicts of interests, in order to break out of the echo chambers of conventional political discussion. The station is based on the work of Occupy community members and citizen journalists — it is TV for the 99%.
