Paper Tiger has been creating fun, funky, hard-hitting, investigative, compelling and truly alternative media since 1981! The programs produced at PTTV have inspired media-savvy community productions and activism around the world. Our archive includes shows that provide critical analysis of media, educate about the communications industry and highlight issues that are absent from mainstream information sources. Because of the bias and misrepresentation of issues in mainstream media it is critical to include diverse perspectives in the process of making media. PTTV strives to increase awareness of how media can be used to affect social change. A public that can strategically and creatively use the media is necessary for a more equitable and healthy democracy. Paper Tiger is funded by the New York Council on the Arts!

ICANN Needs To Ask More Questions About the Sale of .ORG

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/icann-needs-ask-more-questions-about-sale-org

The Internet Society (ISOC)—which has controlled .ORG for the past 16 years—and Ethos Capital are treating the .ORG registry as an asset that can be bought and sold at will. But ISOC didn’t pay to acquire the .ORG registry—indeed, PIR, the organization that was founded by ISOC to run .ORG was given $5 million to help it do so. Now, ISOC plans to profit off of the value of the registry by converting PIR into a for-profit LLC in the hands of Ethos Capital.

We're signing on! Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)

Over 21,000 people, 660 organizations, and now six Members of Congress have asked ICANN, the organization that regulates the Internet’s domain name system, to halt the $1.135 billion deal that would hand control over PIR, the .ORG domain registry, to private equity. There are crucial reasons this....

Integrating Lessons Learned and Future Strategies:
Panelists and conference participants look ahead at the next 20 years of Indymedia efforts for radical social change.

11/22/2019

Twenty years ago, thousands of young activists filled the streets of downtown Seattle in a massive protest against the World Trade Organization. They stunned business and government elites around the world with their creative tactics and their use of independent media networks to spread their own global justice message to the public, thus circumventing traditional corporate media gatekeepers. This conference will bring early organizers of the Seattle indymedia network, more recent activists from the democracy movements across the MENA region, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, and other movements, together with scholars committed to a more inclusive and democratic media system to analyze the lessons of the past 20 years of resistance media and the road ahead.

The opening night of the 20-Seattle Anniversary translated into Spanish (focusing on the Zapatista legacy) is now on YouTube! Thank you Paper Tiger TV
On Saturday there will be a screening of War, Oil and Power at PS1 in Queens. It is free to NYC residents. This program was part of the Gulf Crisis TV Project, a series of ten programs responding to the first Gulf War. The series began in 1990 before the war started as people began to realize that a war might happen. This series was a COLLABORATION between Paper Tiger and DEEP DISH TV.

Hearts in a Heartless World: Access and Community Media JUNE 9 2 PM at the National Gallery of Art in DC Free-speech champion and community access pioneer, author of Hand-Held Visions: The Impossible Possibilities of Community Media, founder of Paper Tiger Television, and cofounder of Deep Dish TV, DeeDee Halleck presents her rarely screened early documentary portraits in their original formats. The program includes Children Make Movies (1961, 16mm, 13 minutes); Mural on Our Street (1965, 35mm, 26 minutes), nominated for an Academy Award; the lyrical Jaraslawa (1973, 16mm, 15 minutes); and Bronx Baptism (1980, 16mm, 27 minutes), observing, in Halleck’s words, “community creation in the midst of economic devastation: the heart of a heartless world” (with additional camera work by artists Richard Serra and Babette Mangolte). Followed by a recently digitized episode from Paper Tiger Television, Donna Haraway: National Geographic of Primates. (Total running time 120 minutes)
