Control of the mass media is being consolidated into fewer and fewer corporate hands, and voices
that challenge powerful interests and fight for social and economic justice are being squeezed out.
Independent and public media are not immune from this phenomenon. Recent dramatic events in
the takeover of Pacifica radio, the largest and most important independent broadcaster in the country,
have given an urgent wake-up call, highlighting the threat to free speech, open debate and the voices
of the disenfranchised in every quarter. These issues and what you can do in the fight to save democratic
media will be the topic of an evening of discussion and inspiration.
