Hi my name is really Mike... . I have been filming for a few years here in the Portland Cascadia Region.
I am working with PCASC who is helping organize this trip to Caracas. I am on this delegation.

Most of the video I have are posted on the internet, I post them right here, on Portland Indy Media.
Where "you can be the media" where the story gets told with no corporate spin!!
I am filming under the name "Joe Anybody" the 70 min video I am showing is "Videos from the Front-Lines"

(Wednesday morning *note)
On KBOO 90.7 fm I will be on the program "political perspectives" on Wednesday morning
This is being broadcasted on "community radio" (independent media) sometime during the 9am to 10am time frame on 8.12.09.
Josh from KBOO was the person who interviewed me about the Cascadia to Caracas video and my filming interests.

>> To stream the program for the first time you may need to download their "player"

Most of the videos I have are political related, many are covering Human Rights and Civil Rights. I am trying to document the anti war movement, and the GI Resisters movements. I am also documenting the Peace movement and many other social justice issues revolving around "homeless issues and police accountability" (Human Rights) just to name a few of the interesting areas that I am trying to report on by using "independent media" (in the absence of the corporate media and their own agendas)I have a couple interesting scenes of me filming the police as they film me (?)(and/or take my camera)

I have filmed at the yearlong "Impeach bush & cheney" Vigil at which was weekly every Thursday at noon, in NE Portland outside the office of Representative Earl Blumenauer for House District 3.

The event on Saturday will have two speakers from Evergreen college who recently returned from Caracas to share their experiences and give us firsthand information, of the independent media in Venezuela and farming culture and its advancements. We will also introduce our own members of the PDX Venezuela delegation to the audience.

After the featured video there will be some LIVE music playing and socializing/refreshments while I play two video simultaneously on the side walls whereupon folks can watch <or not> or talk while the "side videos play" The side videos are for extra viewing that contains great footage but was not in the 70 min video.

The side videos are:
(1) Seriously Pissed Off Grannies Protest Videos
(2) Impeachment videos Weeks 1 - 8

The Cascadia to Caracas Event starts at 4 pm on August 15th Saturday. It is being held at the Portland Art Museums in the Mark Building, in the Miller Gallery off to the right from the Lobby.

Stop in to help show support for Portland's Independent Media grassroots efforts and to build solidarity in the peace & justice movement.
