Your Planet Needs You- Occupy News Network

Your Planet Needs You
November 23rd 2012
Occupy News Network

They have been heady and exciting months since February when ONN was born, kicking and screaming into this world of upheaval, revolution and social change. Since then we’ve found ourselves at the epicentre of some absolutely momentous political dramas. We’ve lost homes in the evictions of St Paul’s, Finsbury Square, the School and Bank of Ideas here in London, and we’ve found homes amongst the London Squatting community, who today have their homes threatened by the change in squatting laws. We’ve got hold of the latest in advanced livestreaming technology to bring you the truth, uncensored, now. And we brought ‘the eyes of the world’ when the police sought to abduct a whistleblower from a sovereign embassy. We brought you news from where no-one else would, or could, or dared to. And we listened to the people who the government and the mainstream media would rather silence.
And now, the time has come to take it to the next level.
Wikileaks blew the lid on the corrupt governments of the world, during the Jasmine revolution new camera and internet technologies played a decisive role – and brought the people’s message of change to the rest of the world. We are witnessing the rise of the citizen journalist. We are witnessing the rise of the human being.
And each of us has a role to play.
The whole planet over, we are clamouring for news of a people arising as one. Mainstream media does not, cannot and doesn’t know how to report on a revolution that’s taking place everywhere at once. They act as a mouthpiece for big business, governments and celebrity millionaires – disseminating the views of the elite while ignoring the voice of humanity. And so it is a new generation of journalists that must take up the task; principled, talented, inspired reporters who challenge power every day simply by speaking the truth.
Consider this a call to arms. To take up the smart phone, camera or keyboard and take part in the struggle, using your wits as a sword and your integrity as armour.
ONN is looking for writers, filmmakers, livestreamers, support personnel and presenters. We are an international news network and so wherever you live, you can help. We need donations for new equipment and office space, and we need dissemination via social media for even wider coverage than we are already achieving.
But most of all we need your knowledge, talent, energy, integrity and passion. If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to join the global revolution, then that time is now.
