Call to Action!
********************************
Boston Independent Media Center
September 26 - October 3


The October 3 Presidential debate is on in Boston! Let us do battle to get the
truth untold by the mainstream press into the eyes and ears of the people.
There are plenty of stories, considering the range, subjects, and terms of
debate will be smaller than the narrow end of nothing, sharpened. Let's get
out
the voices of our communities. They are inspiring, diverse, and resounding
voices. Will you join us in Boston?

Bring your video cameras, mini disc recorders, laptop, photographic cameras to
Boston to help report on the issues and events the mainstream media refuses to
cover. Why aren't third party candidates' voices heard in the mainstream
press? Why aren't they allowed to participate in the corporate sponsored
debates? Why aren't the Republicrat candidates talking about the growing
wealth
gap, longer work week and the ever increasing prison population? Why do the
presidential debates have corporate sponsors? How are people beginning to
surmount this farce called democracy? The Boston Independent Media Center is
hoping to address these issues and more starting September 26 with the
Solidarity Protest for S26 in Prague.

O3 Projects:
Audio: IMC-Boston and the community media here have hours of recorded content
to be Web-cast. We need more. We need work done on digitizing, uploading. We
need help from field reporters, sound editors, word smiths, and equipment
jockies to create the live
content from a week of speak-outs leading up to October 3 and the marches that
day leading to the debate site and demonstrations at the University of
Massachusetts in Boston.

Video: Footage collected during events leading up to the October 3
Presidential
Debates will be compiled into 1/2 hour segments for distribution amongst local
cable access TV stations, with the goal of getting the information out to the
public before the November 7 elections. We need help covering events,
collecting footage from the community and editing it into useable material for
massive distribution.

Print: We will be writing articles and taking photos of events and people
around Boston who represent the issues not being covered by the mainstream
press. The content will be uploaded to www.boston.indymedia.org and used
for PDF
news sheets which will be distributed widely throughout the city. We will also
be helping to get the word about S26 events in Prague.

Apprenticeship Program: To help incorporate newcomers into the IMC projects we
will be pairing up experienced journalists, videographers, photographers, and
radio enthusiasts with people who are interested in a specific medium, but
need
some guidance.


For those of you able to make it into town earlier, we will be meeting Sunday
September 24 at 6pm to officially open the Boston IMC for this event.

For more information on the meeting or travel to Boston, please check our
www.boston.indymedia.org

or contact imc-boston (at) indymedia.org

We will try to provide housing for all incoming journalists!
