Media Reform Conference: January 12-14

[Originally posted January 18 in votermedia Google group.]

The National Conference for Media Reform held in Memphis last weekend was the most exciting conference I've ever attended! See for full listing and free download audio of all sessions, plus video of main speeches.

Speakers: Amy Goodman, Jane Fonda, Jesse Jackson, Danny Glover, Bill Moyers and many more. Topics included:

- concentration of media ownership

- internet neutrality

- intellectual "property"

- future of public broadcasting

- role of media in politics

- plus a wide range of other media issues

Over 3000 people attended. The media reform movement is growing fast! If VFM is successful at UBC, I bet this movement will pick it up and run with it.

BTW, if you're ever in Memphis don't miss the National Civil Rights Museum -
