Free Speech TV
Seizing the power of television to expand social consciousness, FSTV fuels the movement for progressive social, economic, and political transformation. By exposing the public to perspectives excluded from the corporate-owned media, FSTV empowers citizens to fight injustices, to revitalize democracy, and to build a more compassionate world. Free Speech TV broadcasts independently-produced documentaries dealing with social, political, cultural, and environmental issues; commissions and produces original programming; develops programming partnerships and collaborations with social justice organizations; provides special live broadcasts from remote locations; and maintains an adjunct Web site that hosts one of the Internet's largest collection of progressive audio and video content. FSTV's core strategies include: movement building (empowering global citizens, by exposing abuse of power in all its forms, and by highlighting efforts of resistance); partnerships (building partnerships with social justice organizations and directing viewers to their work); independent media (working with, and supporting the growth of independent media); and creativity (celebrating creativity and artistic expression as a vital part of any healthy society).
