Marissa is a survivor of domestic violence from Jacksonville, FL who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for defending herself from violence. Even though she merely fired a gun in the air and injured no one, she was denied the defense of Florida’s “Stand your Ground” law and sentenced under a mandatory minimum. In September 2013, Marissa’s conviction was overturned by an appeals court and a new trial ordered, but she remains in jail awaiting her new trial, scheduled for 2014. You can read more about Marissa’s story and her legal case at http://www.justiceformarissa.blogspot.com/.

Sid Santa this year will be accepting old CTA Chicago Cards so his elves can make guitar picks out of them. Here he is pictured from 2011.
Multikulti member and Q4 radio show host Sid Yiddish was recently featured in the Red Eye for accepting your old CTA Chicago Cards. They cannot be recycled because of their RFID chip. Instead you can submit your old cards addressed to multikulti: 1000 N. Milwaukee or directly to Sid Santa’s P.O. Box 5008, Evanston 60204. You can also bring the cards to multikulti and ask any of the members to give them to Sid.

The garlic is becoming a creative outlet from our members. Welcome our newest writer Dr. Greenlove. His article “What Wouldn’t Jesus Not Do” is a prime example of journalistic merit, while maintaining to the truth, his coverage of the men’s bathroom is entertaining. Other news this month is coverage of the Beehive Collective, the launch of Q4′s radio station on 1710AM radio, and the headliner about the plausible extent of interception and psychological warfare.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission held a public hearing in Oakbrook last Tuesday on the question to make Illinois the national dump site for all nuclear waste produced by the nation. While all major media was asked to cover this hearing, only multikulti’s/Indiamedia’s Mike Kalas made the call to document the full hearing. This issue is not being addressed by the media and this will be one of many issues spoken at the media demonstration to take place Saturday November 16th.
Here is the full hearing:
Here is the facebook event for tomorrow’s action:
CALLING ALL TRUTH SEEKERS AND MEDIA ACTIVISTS!!!
The revolution won’t be televised so turn off your TV’s we’re taking it to the streets!
A nationwide March Against Mainstream Media is being called for November 16th in cities all across the country.
We are planning a rally in Chicago to raise awareness of the privatization, corporatization, and monopolization of the mainstream media and the corruption of our fifth estate. The failure of the corporate networks to adequately cover critical social issues has allowed for the rampant corruption of our political and economic system to go unquestioned and unchallenged.
On November 16th we are going to take action and hold these corporations accountable for aiding and abetting in the subversion of our democracy.
Join us in the streets!
This rally is being held in solidarity with media activists across the country. For more information check out the website for the March Against Mainstream Media…www.mamsm.info
