This project aims at doing alternative journalism in the Spanish language, focused on the struggles for   human and civil rights of immigrant and indigenous communities established in California.

Through video and written reports with photographs, I will inform the public about activities, events, and initiatives related to the indigenous (especially the Oaxacan communities in California) as well as immigrant issues.

Almost nobody, outside corporations or other information agencies or outlets, disseminate -in a massive scale- the facts about important issues for the so-called minorities, in this case for the indigenous and immigrant communities. Most of the time, the mainstream media portrays indigenous and immigrant communities in a way that is biased, impartial or that shows an ignorance of the history and reality of these communities. In fact, almost nobody cares in an authentic way, about indigenous and migrant communities (most of the time if there is an interest, it has a political or economical motive).

It is essential to have an alternative media that could contribute in shaping an objective and critical public opinion about issues that have an impact on the socially and economically disadvantaged, that is to say the vast majority of us.

Hopefully, things are starting to change thanks to the communication technologies, the internet and the social media. Nowadays, the information aimed at exposing the truth and supporting the struggles for justice or at least presenting an alternative vision, is starting to open a tiny crack on the information wall that have prevented us as society to achieve the changes necessary for a more just and humane world.

This project called "IQ Multimedia- Viento de Comunicación Alternativa", seeks to document the struggles for immigrant rights and cultural expressions among the indigenous and migrant communities.
