I'm collecting donations to help sustain my work as an activist and a New Media journalist covering Occupy and other world changing actions.
Currently I am trying to get to Texas to cover the KXL Pipeline Blockade. Dozens of brave activists have stepped in and shackled themselves to heavy equipment, or are camped 100 ft up in the trees, to stop the project that's being called "game over for the environment" .
Learn more at tarsandsblockage.org or @KXLblockade on twitter.
I was deeply involved with the Occupy camp at City Hall and have been documenting it since Day 1. I've been involved with the creation and/or activities of several committees at OLA including yoga & meditation, food, mediation, volunteers, actions, facilitations , gardening, outreach ,actions, PR, social media , media and entertainment/education.
OccupyFreedomLA has been a primary source of breaking news at the Occupy movement. My coverage is 100% funded by small , individual donations and I receive no money or equipment from the OWS/OLA organizers. I am independent, and strive to be a reliable and compelling source of news. I've written blog posts and taken photos, and now created a Ustream TV Channel ustream.tv/occupyfreedomLA so can take you all with me to the front lines of this long overdue an essential evolution.
As a new media platform of citizen journalism fueled by small donors emerges, I will continue to report from the front lines during the ongoing media blackout and provide an unfiltered lens of breaking developments. Occupy Los Angeles was forcefully evicted from Solidarity Park Tuesday No. 29th. The occupation continues with direct actions and General Assembly meetings at Pershing Square at 7:30 every M/W/F and 4pm Saturdays. Please come and participate in this unfolding of history.
I am committed to ensure OccupyFreedomLA remains a reliable, in-depth source of news about Occupy LA and the Occupy Movement at large.
This program is offered the basis of Appreciation. I believe so deeply in the benefits of this program, I want everyone to be able to participate, regardless of current financial circumstances.
So, what does that mean?
You choose Your Own Price. $0, $5, $10 $42, $42 Billion. . . a miracle or two, inspired ideas, connections, win-win possibilities, world peace . . . just to name a few.
That’s right, it’s up to YOU!
I trust in providence, and whole-heartedly believe in the Law of Gratitude – that what you put out returns to you . . . and even greater. OccupyFreedomLA is a community-supported endeavor, catalyzing a collective shift from an obligation economy to an Appreciation Economy.
What we appreciate, APPRECIATES.
Let’s grow a thriving, sustainable world together!
Remember – each person makes a world of difference … and that person is YOU.
Join me in creating a world that works for everyone!
Your in kind donation will help me to obtain equipment, food, transportation/housing and to support my live broadcast on Ustream (ustream.tv/occupyfreedomLA). I have also created a Tumblr blog, twitter account and facebook page and youtube channel, with the intention of getting out as much OLA and Occupy news as possible. These take time and energy to create content for and manage. I enjoy every second of it but it is not sustainable if I must also work other jobs for income to sustain my very modest life.
Thank you for your donation, whatever the amount. Please continue to share these links with your friends and family.
