Community Access TV - Your Right To Free Speech Now Costs A Bundle
As of 1/1/09 there are no more broadcasts of Community TV on channels 65,69 and 95. Help us save our FREE speech!
In 2014 - Long Beach City Council will decide the fate of Community TV in Long Beach. ONE project was approved that provide options for youth to create media but the majority of adult Producers still have NO access to studios or air time because they must pay for expensive "classes" given by PADNET to use the public access funded equipment. In the past such training was required but it was free for the cost of volunteering time to work on the shows of other producers. Support community TV survival in our city as a viable production of YOUR important community messages!!! Let your Council Members know if you cannot afford hundreds of dollars to become a producer but believe in no-cost options for free speech on our airwaves. The City Council meets in City Hall on Ocean Blvd. behind the Main Library at Pacific and Ocean Blvd. For updates on the fate of Long Beach Community TV, to find out more join the Facebook group Friends of Long Beach Community Access Television.

GREEN Events Not to Miss

EARTH DAY Weekend- April 19 - 20, 2014

Today, more than half of the world's population lives in cities. As the urban population grows and the effects of climate change worsen, our cities have to evolve.

It's time for us to invest in efficiency and renewable energy, rebuild our cities and towns, and begin to solve the climate crisis. That's what the
Green Cities campaign is all about. Check out the Earth Day website to see their short video on why Green Cities are important!

Over the next two years Earth Day Network will mobilize a global movement to accelerate the transition to green cities. With your support, we will push government officials to improve energy efficiency, advance renewable energy, and implement green building practices. We will educate the public and transform our communities through on-the-ground projects. And we will advocate for healthy, green schools for our children.

The first step is ensuring that our communities are powered by renewable energy-not fossil fuels-and have clean air.
That's why we are calling on the UN to support an international ban on new coal power plants.

Visit the Green Cities website to learn more about the campaign and find other ways to participate.
