FCC Coming to Monterey on July 21

michaelpowellmini.jpgThe FCC announced Friday (6/18) that is has rescheduled the Localism Hearing in Monterery with the stated purpose to "gather information from consumers, industry, civic organizations, and others on broadcasters' service to their local communities." The hearings, scheduled originally for March 17th, were cancelled without comment.

These hearings are an extremely rare opportunity to tell the FCC about the state of your local media, how well your needs are being served, and how you feel about the increasing consolidation of media ownership. The FCC hears from broadcasters' lobbyists and lawyers every day. Help make sure they hear from the people on July 21!

Prepartion Meetings and Community Teach-Ins: Thursday (June 24) 5:30 PM in Monterey I Friday (June 25) 11:30 AM in Salinas and 5:00 PM in Santa Cruz

Audio: Rockin' the Boat: Jeff Perlstein on Media Reform (3/4/04)

Grassroots Radio Conference 9, Los Olivos, CA June 24 - 27

sbimc.jpgSanta Barbara Indymedia has been helping to organize this year's Grassroots Radio Conference taking place in Los Olivos, CA from June 24 - 27

The Grassroots Radio Conference brings together media activists and community radio people to share skills and knowledge in everything related to our work. This is the first time that the national conference has been held on the West Coast and the first time that it is being organized by a college radio station. The conference will draw on the DIY approach of community radio, utilizing a non-hierarchical workshop format in which all in attendance can actively participate.

Corporate Power

corporation.jpgAccording to the film The Corporation, a corporation is simply a psychopath: Lying, harming others and not caring about it, unable to learn from mistakes, and more. Biotech croporations are just that: harming and threatening farmers around the world, destroying biodiversity - and yet they describe themselves as selling "Food, Health, Hope". (interviews)

Some 17,000 people from biotech companies from about 60 countries are meeting behind closed doors for the annual BIO convention to set up more contacts, sell their ideas, raise venture capital and convince journalists and the public that biotech is just great. To spin pro-biotech PR, corporate journalists were provided with story ideas a week before the conference started, while Indymedia journalists were denied press credentials due to writing from an "activist point of view".

For corporate journalists, BIO2004 started out on Sunday with a media brunch full of GM food and corporate lies, promoting GM crops as the weapon against obesity.
