What We Believe and What We Intend
LiP takes creative aim at a culture machine that strips us of our desires and sells them back as product and mass mediocracy. Brazen, audacious and presumptuous, LiP combines a biting aesthetic consciousness with a structural understanding of power. Refusing to be colonized by despair, cynicism or apathy, LiP gives voice to those working for a sustainable society rooted in cooperation and diversity. LiP confronts the miserabilist capitalist system with dangerous humor, liberated eroticism and Informed Revolt.

ABC NoRio’s InterActivist Network

InterActivist Network

We seek to offer new, dissenting perspectives, and to disseminate information about news-worthy events often overlooked or misrepresented by mainstream media.

Though the issues we address will be specific to our community, our goal is to instigate both a national and international conversation concerning similar issues affecting other communities.

The InterActivist Network is a model for community action using new media and technology to invigorate notions of public dialogue; to inform current debates within our community, both local and global; and to motivate non-mediated communication between the general public and participants in news-worthy events.
