Revisiting Earth Day, Inc.

Revisiting Earth Day, Inc.

About two years ago, B Media Collective finished our third experimental Variety Show. Variety Tree: Earth Day, Inc. travels through a complex ecosystem of media streams, political landscapes and concrete jungles to explore how corporately fueled consumerism has pushed so many into the cracks on the street and that no matter how much Roundup is used that life will fight back. Take half an hour of your busy day to sit back and relax… then go make things happen!

Embed with the US in Honduras

Embed with the US in Honduras

Dawn Paley provides some excellent commentary on the US’s ongoing intervention in Honduras and the continued spin spat out by feckless embedded journalists pushing the Pentagon’s party line. May 6, 2012 Embedded NYT Reporter Boosts US War in Honduras (and why we shouldn’t listen) Today’s edition of the New York Times featured a front page story by Thom Shanker about how the US is waging an “Iraq-style” war on drugs in Honduras.

People in over 80 cities across the US participated in creative and direct actions against corporations that benefit from their relation to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a shadowy “non-profit” that buddies up state legislators with the biggest business interests in the world. In Portland over a thousand people braved the freezing sideways rain to participate in a well organized (and unpermitted) march with affinity groups staging multiple actions along the route.

Amateur Riot — The Anti-Nuke Movement in Japan

Amateur Riot — The Anti-Nuke Movement in Japan

An excellent peice from Franklin Lopez. Check out more of his amazing and often incendiary work at www.submedia.tv Dispatch #2 of Stop the Flows focuses on the burgeoning anti-nuke movement in Japan, following the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Truth be told I had larger plans for this dispatch. But with time and resources lacking, I could only scratch the surface of not just the anti-nuke movement, but of the anarchist and activist scene in Japan. So […]

Blood on the Tracks at Democracy Now!

You’ve probably seen our short piece we did for Brian Willson’s book tour: But here is an hour long interview with him on Democracy Now! that is both harrowing and inspiring (we helped send the B-roll footage to the DN! producers):

Rose City Rising – Day 3 Occupy Portland

Rose City Rising – Day 3 Occupy Portland

Portland enters its third day of occupation with over 1000 people actively holding space at the Chapman Park Camp in downtown. As preparations for the Portland Marathon continue, many are nervous about being fenced in and locked down from 4am till 4pm tomorrow. Despite fears and lively debate and consensus making in the People’s General Assembly, at times comprised of over 500 participants, the occupation is becoming more organized and spirits are high. Occupy Portland is by far one of […]
