Denmark's Racist Cartoons: WW Editorial

Workers World | Hand-in-hand with their governments, media outlets ... continue to unapologetically publish these images under the banner of “free speech”—that is, freedom for the wealthy who control the capitalist media to put out whatever biased, racist, pro-imperialist propaganda suits their agenda. more...  54 Comments

Battleground for Democracy: Telecommunications at the Grassroots Media Conference

Peter Holslin (and Liza Sabater) | One workshop at The Grassroots Media Conference, held last Saturday at the New School, highlighted the importance of understanding media policy. Speakers at another workshop showed how to build an independent broadband server to provide free internet for limited areas. And at a third, some of New York City’s bloggers met face to face for the first time to discuss their trade.

---

One of the bloggers at the conference, Liza Sabater, also filed a report from the GMC: "It was a quick meeting and one in which, grok, I would have loooved to talk more about the business, networking and creative issues involving blogging. We need a whole day for that. Which is why I hope to continue nagging the people of Community Services Society and Drum Major Institute into funding a NYC blogger's conference as well as workshops for people who want to learn how to do it. Hey, I may even be able to get the good people of Eyebeam and The Guggenheim Museum to lend their labs and conference rooms for the events. So people, show me the money, the resources and the places and I'll show you a kick ass series of conferences here in NYC meant to bridge that frigging digital and netroots divide. OKAY?" more...  3 Comments

Against the War on Terror: New York Group Announces Teach-In

Alex Gourevitch | To some, being against the war on terror is a irrational and dangerous, but to one New York group, called 'Against the War on Terror', it is the only principled and rational stance.

The event will cover political Islam, international dimensions of the war on terror, constitutional issues, and liberty and security. more...  2 Comments

Where Is the Broadband Advisory Committee?

Amanda Lamy | City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and Mayor Bloomberg are in breach of a local law enacted on December 21st of 2005 mandating the creation of a Broadband Advisory Committee.

Why striking bus drivers in Tehran are the real defenders of Muslim rights

Worker Freedom | For three weeks, there have been demonstrations across the planet about a great injustice done to Muslims. After baton-wielding cops inflicted dozens of injuries, the fear of death is in the air. George W Bush's State Department has warned of 'systematic oppression', while secularists and fundamentalists have revealed their mutually incompatible values. Since you ask, I am not talking about the global menace of Scandinavian cartoonists that has so terrified our fearless free press, but mass arrests in Iran.
