reasons why Zalea TV exists and how it aims to enable public access
to the audiovisual sphere:
- The promotion
of pluralism of information and of free speech in the media, regardless
of economical, political and other pressures exerted by the « establishment ».
of citizens' access (whatever their nationality) and non profit
organizations' access to free expression of their opinions and
ideas, their creativity and their perception of how information
should be presented in the audiovisual media,
- Fight against
censorship, self censorship and the manipulation of information
by the established audiovisual media,
of the codes used by established television, search for new esthetic
models to serve new editorial and artistic viewpoints,
television, now a vector of alienation and passivity, into a vector
of action and emancipation.
of human rights and the fight against all forms of discrimination
from producing its own programs (a comparatively small part of its
activity), Zalea TV supports the diffusion of works, whether amateur
or professional, that are refused, censored, under-exposed, or ignored
by established television.
public access on Zalea TV is open to community programs produced by
citizens, groups or organizations. Their programs will not be judged
either on format or technical criteria, but on their affinity with
Zalea's editorial Charter, based on the international Declaration
of Human Rights.
TV defines its mission as that of an NGO of emergency intervention
to facilitate access to the audiovisual media. Zalea TV aims to favor
free expression for groups and sociocultural currents who never get
access to the audiovisual media. Programs from community groups and
non-governmental organizations, popular educational groups, social
communication groups and informal community groups, independent creators.
