Marin TV Focus - The Day We Fight Back

A broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms will hold a worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA's mass spying regime on February 11th. Dubbed "The Day We Fight Back", the day of activism was announced on the eve of the anniversary of the tragic passing of activist and technologist Aaron Swartz.

On January 11, 2013, Aaron Swartz took his own life. Aaron had a brilliant, inquisitive mind that he employed towards the ends of technology, writing, research, art, and so much more. Near the end of his life, his focus was political activism, in support of civil liberties, democracy, and economic justice. The protest is both in his honor and in celebration of the victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act two years ago this month, which he helped spur.

Participants including Access, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, BoingBoing, Reddit, Mozilla, ThoughtWorks, and more to come, will join potentially millions of Internet users to pressure lawmakers to end mass surveillance -- of both Americans and the citizens of the whole world.

California is a Place

A series of short beautiful documentaries that tell the stories of unique individuals throughout the Golden State. The films are produced, directed, and shot by Drea Cooper & Zackary Canepari.

The first short, Cannonball, is about skateboarders riding the abandoned and empty pools of Fresno, a city hit hard by the financial debt crisis resulting in numerous foreclosed homes. This is followed by a portrait of Hollywood Superman impersonator, Christopher Dennis, in the short Superman.

What Happened to Al Jazeera English?

You may have noticed that starting August 20th Al Jazera English programming disappeared from our schedule. This is due to the launch of the Al Jazeera America Network and various cable operator agreements in regards to carriage elsewhere. To watch Al Jazeera's new channel, check your local listings, they're taking over channels currently broadcasting Current TV, or visit http://america.aljazeera.com/

In Marin you can see the Al Jazeera America Network on Comcast 107 if you have the digital 'enhanced' package. Satellite subscribers will find the channel at DIRECTV Channel 358 and DISH Network Channel 215. AT&T U-verse and Time Warner customers are out of luck as both systems have refused to carry the new Al Jazeera channel. If you watched Al Jazeera's live web streams in the past, you will now need to be a cable or DBS subscriber to access those streams.
