I'm a Chicago-based livestreamer who brings live, on the ground coverage of radical protests around the Chicago area. Some events I've covered include: The 2012 NATO Summit protests, The Chicago Teacher's Strike, the #Justice4Trayvon marches after the Zimmerman Verdict, Fight For 15 picket lines, Stop Monsanto rally, and many more. I've been arrested streaming a sit-in in Senator Dick Durbin's office trying to stop sequestration.

I'm a full time student and activist. I don't expect to live off livestreaming but I need help maintaining my equipment.
Right now, my main needs are micro-USB cables, which break all the time, and batteries which are losing their ability to hold a charge.
$10 would buy me a new cable
$40 would buy me a good battery
donations of any size are appreciated <3
PS. The head on the tripod in that picture got busted and needs to be replaced.
