The best way to
get your message across intact and uncensored is to use the many independent
media resources available. Independent media is not owned by money hungry
capitalists interested only in the bottom line, or run as the propaganda
mouth piece of the State. Independent media has much less interest in
pleasing owners or advertisers, or the government. This means that rather

as well as justifying the actions of the government, they are more likely
to be interested in that old fashion notion of telling the truth. Here
are some independent media outlets that would be more than happy for
you to get in touch with them.

since 1985 the suwa
show has been covering local and overseas direct action from a libertarian
perspective. our prime interest is in unwaged and housing issues, but
much of the show covers troublemaking in general. suwa has gone through
a lot of different line ups and changes over the years, but the focus
remains on direct action and fighting back rather than commentary and
theoretical questions. most weeks we interview people involved with
various campaigns and actions, read reports and announce anything that's
We take a non sectarian
approach and generally will plug any action that folks are involved
in. currently we are limited to covering what we personally know of,
hear about or glean from the net. the more that direct action folks
contact us the more we can report on and promote. time permitting we
