Its a MediaEmergenC !! Converge against Corprate Media! (tags)
Media EmergenC, a conference organized by the San Diego Independent Media Center to promote, strengthen and build democratic media organizations, will incorporate performance, street action, workshops, speakers and forums October 6-9 to raise a voice of opposition against the increasing corporate control of our media. The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), an organization with considerable lobbying power in Washington D.C. which represents owners of media broadcasting outlets, will bring its annual conference, the Radio Road Show to San Diego October 4-8. The NAB was a major force behind the FCC's deregulation of media ownership guidelines and continues to lobby for the ability of a relatively few corporations to control a majority of the media outlets available to the American public. COME CONVERGE IN SAN DIEGO TO SAY FUCK CORPRATE MEDIA!!
