In the digital age, traditional media faces new challenges as citizens increasingly turn to independent alternatives for information. Citizen media and independent press have emerged as key players in the modern media landscape, offering a counterbalance to mainstream information and producing alternative content. Citizen media platforms are user-generated and include blogs, social networks, online video platforms, podcasts, and news websites. Independent press is defined by its editorial and financial autonomy, free from political, economic, or ideological powers. The democratization of the internet and digital tools has facilitated the rise of these media, with smartphones and digital cameras enabling multimedia content creation by the public. Crowdfunding and subscription models have provided viable financing solutions. Participatory video, an approach that encourages community engagement in film production, was first implemented by Canadian Don Snowden on Fogo Island, leading to collective awareness of local issues and legislative changes. The independent press plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy, transparent democracy, offering a platform for diverse opinions and voices, fostering innovation in journalism, and potentially restoring public trust in media.

situation of smugglers in Iran - Iraq border and Kurdistan part of Iran. people carry goods on their back between borders of two country in the mountains for a few dollars each time.

24 Feb 2019  |  Foreign Policy
The article discusses the plight of Kurdish smugglers, known as kolbars, who transport goods across the Iran-Iraq border. The kolbars face harsh conditions, carrying heavy loads through treacherous terrain and risking encounters with border guards. The intensification of U.S. sanctions against Iran and increased border surveillance by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have made their work more difficult and dangerous. The U.S. aims to economically isolate Tehran and has influenced the behavior of the Peshmerga, the military forces of the Kurdistan Regional Government, towards the kolbars. The article also touches on the historical marginalization of Kurds in Iran and the unfulfilled promises of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to the Kurdish minority. The economic desperation in Iranian Kurdistan drives many to smuggling as a means of survival, despite the high risks involved.
