Spotlight: Niko Georgiades
In this – the inaugural edition of the Spotlight series – we speak with Niko Georgiades of the independent media collective Unicorn Riot. Niko and his media collective have been instrumental in the documentation of on-going protests not only in the Twin Cities but also around the country. Unicorn Riot broadcasts a live news show every week covering a wide variety of topics from activism to climate change.
In our interview with Niko we speak about the First Amendment, independent versus mainstream media, Black Lives Matter, law enforcement surveillance and interference with livestream broadcasts, his targeting by law enforcement and eventual arrest while filming and much more! The extended cut of our nearly hour long interview is at the bottom of this page.
