About Ground Noise & Static
In November, one or the other of the corporate candidates will
win, and then, as always, it will be what the people do, not the
politicians, that counts.
Ground Noise & Static is a video report on the protests that occurred in connection with the Democrat and Republican National Conventions, Ground Noise & Static is a manifesto. We went to Denver and St. Paul to take the pulse of the movement. Corporate media would cover the platitudes and posturing of the politicians, we were interested in something else, a story hidden in plain sight, captured in the now-classic street chant, “This is what democracy looks like.”
Ground Noise & Static is a joint effort of Franklin López of subMedia.TV and
PepperSpray Productions. It is the direct result of a wonderful collaboration with many indymedia-style activists and journalists who all pitched in for the common good and success of their various efforts to tell their “Unconventional” stories.
