The revolution won’t be televised so turn off your TV’s:

We’re taking it to the streets!

A nationwide March Against Mainstream Media is being called for November 16th in cities all across the country.

We are planning a rally in Chicago to raise awareness of the privatization, corporatization, and monopolization of the mainstream media and the corruption of our fifth estate. The failure of the corporate networks to adequately cover critical social issues has allowed for the rampant corruption of our political and economic system to go unquestioned and unchallenged.

On November 16th we are going to take action and hold these corporations accountable for aiding and abetting in the subversion of our democracy.

Join us in the streets!

This rally is being held in solidarity with media activists across the country. For more information check out the website for the March Against Mainstream Media.
