Dee Dee talks about independant radio, photography, newspapers, all coming together  beginning with covering the WTO in seattle... discovering Paper Tiger and Deep Dish TV and how many have been affected from Cuba to Kerds. Representatives from two stations in California spoke and there was music from Alicia Littletree and SONiA. We all agree that free speech can't be taken for granted.

"you're in good company...I want to shake your hand"

David Rovics - Who Will Tell the People

"I think that the struggle for the airwaves for the Pacifica network is one of the most important things going on in the country today becasue it really represents the struggle for the hearts and minds of the people.  If we can't communicate to people we are not going to be able to reach them. This is about that and what they are not telling us, and why we need shows like Democracy Now...."

Again I want to say how honored I feel to spend two hours at this mic and not be controlled by any management here. Hundreds are on their last legs because of copyright rulings requiring royalties for webcasting. I can't even keep up with it.  The gathering of public radio and tv and independant media at Seattle is a possitive step.

Eileen McGann - No Country's Law
Beyond the Storm - DragonWing Music
"if you try to stop them they'll sue"

Heading to Canada next weekend for a festival.

Tamarack - We Owe It To the Pioneers
13 - Folk Era
"...To take this country back"

Saturday night's key speakers were Granny D and Pete Seeger.
Also a phenomenal night of thinkers and thinking.
