@StackIzShort is an independent journalist & activist in Ferguson, MO who broadcasts live at //ustre.am/1i2lw

“I am an freelance journalist who broadcasts the truth, unedited from my phone.

Since the shooting & killing of Mike Brown, dedicated demonstrators have taken to the street, calling for reform & justice. I try to be with them, and by their side as much as possible. My goal is to show you an insider’s look of what is happening, from the perspective of the people.

I am an activist first. I started streaming to counter the police’s narrative of events during arrests. Many of the arrests I observed were targeted attacks on certain individuals, or executed dangerously. Using the video & streams we are able to add a another layer of protection to people on the street.

I am in need of funds to fill the gap in income streaming creates, safety equipment, tech equipment, wellness & self-care supplies & gas.”

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
