Just how does Confluence squeeze trumpeting the vulva and the Civilian
Oversight Board and developing a community center and relationships with
musicians and artists into one independent newspaper? We see any action
for social justice or community improvement linked to every other around
the world. Undermining the grasp the powerful have over one aspect of our
lives frees others to not only undermine that grasp in other areas in our
lives, but serves others in doing the same. Confluence is part of an
independent media movement within the context of the struggle for a better
world. Confluence points out injustice in the current system to
illustrate the need to move beyond these institutions, not merely tinker
with them.
Confluence is celebrating 10 years of efforts at being an
independent,
dynamic voice in political media in the St. Louis area. Since 1995
Confluence has published community voices on their neighborhood, city and
nation. While corporate media, like the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, report on
US troop heroism and corporate press releases, Confluence interviews
survivors of police brutality, organic farmers resisting Monsanto([search])?s
biotech crops and everyday people working for a better world.
Confluence rabble-rousing has gotten us an angry call from the Mayor's
father and our newsroom offices raided by the police when we opposed
Monsanto's biotech crops.
Publishing a newspaper has never been enough. Over the last ten years,
Confluence has built a comprehensive media movement while remaining
involved in the local neighborhood. Confluence co-founded the Community
Arts and Media Project (CAMP([search]), www.stlcamp.org) and the community-access
news website, the St. Louis Independent Media Center (www.stlimc.org).
Confluence made numerous alliances with musicians, artists and businesses
to bring resistance to a broad cross-section of people.
Confluence is part of Missouri?s rich tradition of radical publishing
including the 1970s student-run St. Louis Outlaw and the Mexican
revolution paper, Regeneracion edited by the anarchist Magon brothers was
published in St. Louis in 1905.
