DIVA TV (Damned Interfering Video Activists)
DIVA TV began in 1989 as a video-documenting affinity group
within ACT UP (AIDS_Coalition_To_Unleash_Power) -- an activist group
famous for its direct action against bureaucratic inaction and
drug company profiteering in the AIDS crisis, and widely acknowledged
as re-energizing civil disobedience tactics in the United States.
DIVA TV (currently less than a collective than state-of-mind)
documents AIDS activism and the community responses to HIV/AIDS.
