    Global Indymedia features links to reports and information on the the North American Street Newspaper Association gathering in San Francisco. Street Newspapers, like Chicago’s Streetwise, are published by people who are currently or have been homeless, which they frequently sell on the streets to help earn subsistence. Such newspapers are also frequently a forum for challenging journalism informed by a perspective which is foreign to most of us, and that we also frequently avoid confronting. The IMC posts these reports where a visiting NASNA participant has witnessed everyday police harrassment of poor people and documented it at the People’s Newsroom, an IMC space set up for the gathering–along with a report from Friday’s events.
