Beware! Demotix is in “partnership/run by” Corbis (aka Bill Gates) and do NOT pay their contributors well – first Corbis gets their cut then Demotix splits what’s left – not a good deal!
If you want to donate/contribute your work put it in public space like flickr or something similar
FYI in case media team members wanna feed coverage into this
crowd-source media platform...

Occupy the Nation, October 15 - where will you be?
October 15 is the day that the Occupy Together protests go global, with events planned all over the world. North America won't be left out, with more protests than ever taking place in the USA, and outposts of the movement expected to pop up in Canada and Mexico. Wherever you are, there's probably an Occupy event taking place near you.
Demotix has been covering the Occupy movement since it began - continuing our citizen coverage that has taken in the protests in Tahrir square and in Madrid that inspired Occupy Wall Street. Help us to show the world what's really happening at the demonstrations by contributing your photos.
We've highlighted a few examples below, but there are dozens more events planned than we could fit into one email - just search for #occupy on Twitter or visit http://www.occupytogether.org/ to find one in your area
Occupy Wall Street
Occupy Wall Street is still going strong. With reports of up to 5,000 demonstrators last weekend, October 15th is sure to be huge, with a demonstration planned in Liberty Plaza.
Occupy Dallas protesters are camping out in Pioneer Plaza. They staged a march last Friday and have maintained a permanent presence in the square ever since. More information at http://occupydallas.org/
Occupy Portland has been going since September 6th. This week, they've been marching and acquiring more supplies for their encampment. See what they're up to this weekend at http://occupyportland.org/
Canada will be getting into the game starting on October 15. Organisers are asking people to join them in front of the Toronto Market Exchange to make their stand, and thousands are viewing their Facebook page. More info at http://occupyto.org/.
The Occupy movement may even be spreading to Mexico, with some trying to organise in Tijuana using this Facebook group. Will the protest materialise, or do Mexicans have bigger problems to worry about? We want to see what happens - can you get photographs?
