As world attention turns to the G8 / G20 summits in Ontario activists will converge on the streets in Toronto, joining people on the streets will be independent journalists with microphones, blogs, videos and note pads documenting the grassroots opposition to the elite summits locked behind police protected fences and a security bill estimated at around $1 billion. Independent journalists have long played a vital role in creating critical alternative perspectives on not only street protest but also on the ideas and inspirations that fuel grassroots movements for social justice globally.
