Initially developed to alleviate boredom at boardroom meetings, it has taken off as protesters get their message about what's going on - without alarming wives, parents or bosses. An Android version is in beta. Anony-tweeters can also choose to broadcast the message to all of their followers, but this seems like more of a risky option for the less dextrous of thumb. Protesters are using Pastebin , a name that will provoke flashbacks for the tech-savvy.
The site bills itself as the "No. Designed as a place for programmers to park and possibly share bits of code, The New York Times described Pastebin as "something like the empty space on a phone-booth wall or at a community center, where you can anonymously tack up an announcement Occupy protesters are using it to organize and fund raise - and publish names of the police they say are involved in beatings. He declined our offer but we still think he should hear our voices.
Please encourage him to come along with members of the City Council Education Committee in this exercise of real democracy.

In my school… EXAMPLE: I am here because the mayor has it all wrong, and because he wants to take over space in our public schools to hand it over to charter schools. Because the people have spoken and they say enough is enough! The meeting today at Wall St was inspiring and really motivating!
At the meeting, we came to consensus that, given the success of media in spreading the message of our movement, a video or videos would be a powerful tool for action at the upcoming December 14th PEP. We are proposing to use a portable small video projector, to display a video on the walls of the meeting room at the PEP.
The video will not have sound. We need your immediate help to create these videos! The content of the video will be a photo essay — many images displayed in sequence, on a loop. One video we agreed upon will focus on the Brown vs.
Board of Ed. Remember not to send images that allow you to be identified — we want to avoid specific DOE members from being singled out. Anything falling apart or old: leaky roofs, old gym equipment, old computers, old books or lack thereof pavement for a playground, instead of playground equipment overcrowded cafeterias no kids faces clearly visible.
She then went right back to blocking the street. Do you identify as an insider or an outsider in the community where you photographed? How did this affect your work? I try with every photo to understand it better and tell the story more deeply, knowing that I will never be able to completely. To do that you have to be really humble. You have to accept that every Venezuelan know more than you.
You have to listen intently and try to learn from everyone, accepting that your opinions have limited relevance.
I believe that outsiders and insiders both have a place in documentary storytelling. As an outsider, you have to accept your ignorance and, in many cases, the privilege of being able to leave a hard situation — like I can do in Venezuela. We need to learn about the surface-level stereotypes and then stay long enough not to repeat them.
We need to make sure our perspectives offer insight and not oversimplification. That may take longer and it may be dangerous or painful but once we walk into a community, we owe them the time and energy required to see it through. It hurts when I see outsiders go to a place and photograph the story they think they already know.
