CounterMedia will focus on the protests, actions and issues ignored by conventional media sources, during this summer's Democratic National Convention and beyond. We'll document community struggles and protests as they occur, help reporters find out about demonstrations and local organizing campaigns, and make video images, photographs and reports available to mainstream media outlets and the alternative press, both locally and nationally.

This summer, make sure the City of Chicago and the Democratic Party tell the truth.

CounterMedia's work is being carried on by the
Chicago Independent Media Center
join us there!
