JamesFromTheInternet - Livestreamer
For the last 3 years, I have worked tirelessly as an independent journalist traveling around the country to magnifiy the voices of those who need to be heard the most.
I Livestream protests, marches and actions that the mainstream media purposely ignores, or goes out of their way to distort.
But most importantly, I freely give my time and energy to those who ask how they can also be their own media. I am only one man, armed with nothing more than a cell phone and a bag of tricks, who believes that everyone has the ability to do what I do.
I am self-funded, as I have been since I started. But even I could use some help to continue doing what I do because travelling and replacing equipment gets very expensive at times.
And even if you can not support me as I support individuals and groups desperate to be heard, please go out into the world and BE YOUR OWN MEDIA!
I wanted to check in and let everyone know that after a snow-filled frozen winter here in NYC that everything is thawing out just in time to get back out into the streets!
Beginning this week, there are a full slate of events coming up and I will be out covering them all, including the huge anti-war rally this weekend (Saturday 3/21) in Washington DC.
I will be adding more events as they are announced and I am able to secure travel and lodging.
If you have or know of an event I should be covering, let me know and I will try to be there to make sure it gets the coverage it deserves!
I'll see you all soon out in the streets!
I have heard this question a lot over the last two weeks of never-ending actions here in NYC. After all, more than 1,000,000 people tuned in to watch some of the action and answered the call to help me keep moving forward.
To start with, I increased my data plan to the maximum that Verizon offers...30Gb/mo for $325. So now, I should have enough data to stream any and all events I attend.
But, as always, it is the unknown and ancillary costs that make doing what I do prohibitive at times. Thankfully, all of those donations came to me just in time as my sneakers literally exploded in the middle of covering a march earlier in the week.
So if you were wondering where the money goes...it goes to replace things like this!
Bridges and tunnels were shut down early in the week by protesters while the Thanksgiving Day Parade and Black Friday saw increased police violence in response to the seemingly never ending protests.
As always, I was very grateful to have broadcast the protests to hundreds of thousands of viewers (365,000 to be exact) who have continued to contribute and ensure that I can keep doing what I love to do.
Follow my Livestream page ( https://new.livestream.com/JamesFromTheInternet) to get notifications for future broadcasts of the protests, which show no sign of ending.
It has been a busy couple of months covering protests and actions from Missouri, Washington DC, and right here in New York...and November promises to be even more hectic.
Tomorrow, I will be getting married to the soon-to-be Mrs. FromTheInternet. She has been a rock these last two years supporting my passion to bring people unfiltered coverage of events the mainstream media chooses to ignore. Hopefully, the only thing that will change in our relationship is that it will no longer be possible for the state to compel her to testify against me in court!
Right after our wedding, I will be headed back to Washington DC to provide coverage of the Million Mask March, which garnered millions of views last year and really helped to spread the message that visible and vocal dissent will continue to grow until something is done to reign in the rule of the United Corporations of America.
Once I return from DC I will be on stand-by waiting for the Grand Jury announcement from Ferguson. Hopefully, my fundraising efforts will allow me to head back the day it is announced, because it promises to be a firestorm...and one that corporate media will be working overtime at slanting.
As always I appreciate everyone helping me out...whether it is through donations or online interactions that help spread the word every time I write an article or broadcast an event.
Thank you James...You are a great source!
I think what you are doing for society is more than explanation for what you are doing with the funds you raise. Fundraising to support people doing research or providing an exceptional service isn't just about the costs of specific research or service related expenses, but also the cost of living while working for others. It would be great if you could get a corporate grant from an enlightened business entity. Which reminds me, please feel free to contact me for a complimentary workup for your body, so that you can keep up with all the marchers: PaulasBodyShop.com
