> From:  "Anarchist Discussion Group"  <1871@paris.com>
The next Anarchist Discussion Group meets Monday February 24th 
at 7:30pm at the Youth Action Network space, located at 176 John 
Street, room 307 (north of Queen, on the west side of John St. near 
Urbane Cyclist).  

Based on Yehudah&#8217;s suggesstion and a hookup through Dave from 
the Toronto Video Activist Collective, Kelly from Boiling Frog Distro 
will be facilitating and presenting &#8216;The Guerilla Video Primer&#8217;.  

Kelly&#8217;s helped out with TVAC and has worked at combining activism 
and media for more than 10 years, independently and in collaboration with 
many other cool folks and orgs.  For more info on Kelly, check out 
http://elgordostudios.com/boilingfrog/Missionstatement.html

Here&#8217;s a blurb about the video itself:

'The much anticipated latest release from Cascadia Media 
Collective is finally complete. Guerrilla Video Primer is a facinating 
and informative look into the world of radical alternative video
journalism. This film offers an extensive overview of the skills,
techniques and tactics involved to effectively document any event in
the streets as an independent videographer. After a solid 
explanation about taping high quality video it then proceeds to 
reveal the key points to basic video journalism, copwatching and 
how to cover demonstrations from local rallies to national teargas 
filled street battle zones as well as live ammo action in foriegn 
countries.

Guerrilla Video Primer then goes on to reveal the art and power of
working in camera teams, the basics of editing a project and tips on
distribution as well as how to create a public access TV show. This
fast paced and informative tutorial is Cascadia Media Collecives 
attempt to  "better train and expand the growing pool of guerrilla 
journalists like you." Learn what it takes to get the shot! Sound track 
by Chumbawamba and Onomatopoeia.'

Thanks also to Rae from the Ana's Village collective for doing that 
talk last week, even though it was in a somewhat disembodied 
format (those of you who were there last Monday night will know 
what I mean)!

If anyone's interested in checking out the website for that group 
'RTmark'  which was mentioned briefly - it's at 
http://www.rtmark.com .  Also, since someone mentioned Rochdale 
College in the discussion on communes, check out the Rochdale 
College Museum for more info on that at 
http://home.nyu.edu/~ss74/rochdale.html 

Since Friday the 21s is the anniversary of Malcolm X's assasination 
and we're coming to the end of Black History Month I'll end this with 
a quote by him, which seems rather timely in our present situation: 

                 "You can&#8217;t separate peace from freedom 
                   because no one can be at peace 
                   unless he has his freedom."
