Dublin Community Television

DCTV is now a member cooperative – it used to be a worker cooperative – that aims at the promotion of an independent, community voice and at developing community broadcasting. DCTV is proud to be part of the Irish Community Media movement which has taken such an important stand for diversity and plurality in our media, along with media literacy and skills development in our communities.

Although the station continues to broadcast it now operates as a member coop. However, members of the staff have established a worker cooperative, Community Productions Ltd, which will start producing TV programmes this summer and autumn (2014).

The new online Just Books carries titles on a wide range of topics such as: Irish and international labour history, Irish politics, anarchism, anti-capitalism, feminism, communism, socialism, sex and sexuality, current affairs, globalisation, racism/anti-racism, the environment, labour legislation and more.
