Event will be held as planned despite the civil emergency hoax


Join David Barsamia, Cynthia Peters and other media experts as they consider media strategy for progressives...


Wednesday January 31, 2007 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.
encuentro 5
33 Harrison Ave, Chinatown

With this event, Mass Global Action and Indymedia looks at the antiwar movement and the media. Specifically, it considers the two media options open to the progressive movement:

  • Extensive coverage in the alternative media
  • Marginal attention from the mainstream media.


Going beyond this dichotomy, however, we ask how activists can use both forms media to get bolster the antiwar movement and generate a pro-peace agenda. Our roundtable is composed of longtime organizers who are also media professionals so that we may consider how these media forms interact.


The program is formulated to draw on the expertise of the panel and both the experiences and perspectives of the audience.
