Brian Avery of the International Solidarity Movement to Speak in Santa Cruz

free_palestine.pngBrian Avery of the International Solidarity Movement will be speaking in Santa Cruz on Sunday, March 14, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Resource Center for Nonviolence (515 Broadway at Ocean in Santa Cruz).

On April 5, 2003, Brian Avery was shot in the face by the Israeli Military while wearing a bright red jacket. When he raised himself from the ground, witnesses saw that his left cheek had almost been totally shot off.

Brian was in Jenin as a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement. The ISM is a Palestinian-led movement of Palestinian and international activists working to raise awareness of the struggle for Palestinian freedom and an end to the Israeli occupation. ISM utilizes nonviolent, direct action to confront and challenge the illegal Israeli occupation forces and policies.

There will also be a showing of ‚ÄúDispatches: The Killing Zone.‚Ä? Filmmakers Sandra Jordan and producer Rodrigo Vasquez reveal the shocking level of daily violence in the Gaza Strip. They arrived in Rafah right after the murder of Rachel Corrie.

Tune in to Free Radio Santa Cruz on Sunday, March 14, at 3:00 PM for a live interview with Brian Avery.

Announcement :: Alternative Media

Support the African Indymedia Conference

imc_africa.jpgThe imc-africa working group is seeking donations to support travel and other expenses of delegates to the upcoming African Indymedia conference in Dakar, Senegal, March 1-14. Without your help, delegates from all over Africa will not be able to come to the conference.

Since 1999 when the first Independent Media Center formed in the streets of Seattle the Indymedia network has grown by leaps and bounds. Much of that development has taken place in the Global North which has a well-developed multimedia structure that allows for quick and cheap media content. IMCs in some other parts of the world, notably South America, have grown by organizing non-hierarchically to make media, despite not having as much access to multimedia infrastructure.

On the other hand, Indymedia has grown very slowly in Africa. To give Indymedia Africa the push it needs, the imc-Africa working group, with support from other activists, is organizing an Alternative (Indymedia) Conference in Dakar, Senegal, from March 1 to 14.

Race and National Origin at Pacifica Why You Should Care

Turn on your radio. Spin the dial. Companies like clear channel and Cox own well in excess of 3000 broadcast outlets. That's how most of us get our information. Pacifica exists to counter that. It has only 5 stations, but in major cities, With $400,000,000 in assests and 16 million in yearly budget the foundation is the single most valuable asset of the left. Under one vision it would move to the right, under another it would recruit activists to actually create media.
