"Read [www.]CHOMSKY.INFO" (Be it a Harvard Subway in Cambrdige, MA or anywhere in the United States...)

Some form of this paragraph appears in "Letters from Lexington: Reflections on Propaganda" (http://zpedia.org/Letters_from_Lexington:_Reflections_on_Propaganda)

On the railings outside my local train station at Harringay, in north London, someone has carefully placed a series of small white stickers. The stickers, all at eye level, are designed, I suppose, to be the first thing you see on the way to work and the last thing you see on your way home. They are all neatly typed with two words: READ CHOMSKY. Most mornings I find myself wondering for an instant whether the words are an imperative ('If you do nothing else today...'), or a swaggering boast (along the lines of some of the station's other typical graffiti: 'Shagged Karen', say).

 

 

The "Read Chomsky.info" pronouncement is not that at all, it is meant as: "persuade others to persuade themselves" and "read" includes not just excerpts and more at www.chomsky.info but books, essays, talks over 40 years. And needless to say "read" means to doing so critically as you would any writing or listening to a talk, etc.

"the precautionary principle." What's that? (Integrating Link) is below. (mindful of the academics taking about the "history" or about their book might have not mentioned anything about the U.S. role, some migth say "the Umbrella of U.S. Power: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Contradictions of U.S. Policy" (on Seven Stories Press There is a

The words: The Precuationary Principle and of course the mural at Central Square, Cambridge MA 2003 ought to catch anyone's attention,especially one noting how infrequently the phrase is uttered by nearly everyone from the "corporate free press".

("What's that?"

 

 

Read about Upcoming Justice as noted during No Censorship Radio (What's Left) and other culled activies (88.1 FM / webcasting -not preempted by college sports) Friday, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. EST after Free Speech Radio News which begins at (Boston...)5:30 p.m. (during news now call attention to www.fsrn.org daily archive / web site).

Petrina, WZBC, Flyweight, noted a lecture on nonverbal communication so again maybe there's a chance for a Concert and Peace Report.

If this becomes mostly archival, not current (and I'll add: If your website content is of the timely nature, Act-Events, talks, etc. but your page is not dynamic then most likely an index/search engine will not reflect the changes that you might be scurring to update...) then then you can't beat...

No Corporate Potential
Ten Years Gone (12 years gone now, and What's Left) retrospective of No Censorship Radio was Friday, September 27, 2002:

Linda Pinkow: "...if we had a database..." What happens to the notes Chuck refers to during the show? Are they legible to anyone besides him? (!)

What else can be added about NCR? Listen for yourself and to other such "in dependent media" (Society's Pliers by Michael Albert) and (embedded) Mass Media: Theirs and Ours.

Dave Rovics, once said he thought all NCR shows were archived via the virtually unlimited storage resources but this is not the case. All NCR's art, (citizen) activism, anarchy, unless taped by a listener, or unlikely - though wishfully - shows are manually saved to CD, it will be heard by available but underutilized live "streaming" webcast and radio listeners, hopefully preserved in memory and reflection.

It now appears some archiving actually takes place though it appears the www.wbur.org and www.wbur.edu do not necessarily point to the same web pages. One pages shows links for .m3u files for last two shows and another shows just the file name without link. G/E would like ot see less overaching proprietary software blanket or at minimum facilitate the scattering that there is a choice between non-free, proprietary, and free software (in sense of "four freedoms").

G/H hopes to convert some notes into an informal history of NCR guests, songs, an of course art, anarchy and fun.

I love when Chuck says "Chomsky Chomsky Chomksy" before an excerpt from various talks: 'We (Who else? The U.S.) don't care about peace treaties...'





The ten year anniversary show:



Dave Goodman, Radio with a View, rooted in the first three years of NCR (Currently Jill Stein will accompany Professor Marc Stern on the first Tuesday of each month while the later continues with 90 minutes of weekly interviews (including MIT student organizations) in a historical, social, and economic context.



Barry Crimmins (it sounds like the studio needs a terminal connected to Internet near by) who has been a guest from the begnning.

Independent (Act Indy, "Debt" Card Free, No Charge!) Act-Events, no debt card sponsors, rather corporate-free "ads"! For a modest example of this see TecsChange or Boston Social Forum.

Read about Upcoming Justice as noted on No Censorship Radio, Radio with a View, Sounds of Dissent, Lucid Sounds and others noted in AirwaveWEB, as well as other culled activities ("persuade others to persuade themselves" about the U.S. image of "handing out candy" throughout the world, corporate media, and knowing all they care to know about and act on, the potential of webcasting, consequences of DMCA, FCC in public interest?, hardly (see The Unconscious Civilization by John Ralston Saul (details coming) , radio for all?, one form being Radio 4 All, Low Power FM (LPFM), Prometheus Radio Project, Depleted Uranium, Patriot Acts, in another words, you may have to access something other than 'please let our corporate underwriters know how much you appreciate them', that other form of public radio, those that are in the public interest, National Radio Project, Alternative Radio, and corporate media watch groups, F.A.I.R., resources with historical and timely analysis such as ZNet). Those of you who support corporate newspapers might consider writing letters to ask why you haven't heard about some things that are staples of concerns and actions by those who support independent media, not the "Newspaper of Record" nor the "Search, Static Index of Record".

Until this is more organized this will have to do; corporate free press, "free software", the appearances of collective heart and action might, like much else need qualifications, "open source", "alternative" browsers;"big" business or "major" media seem to be reverse euphemisms, something not necessarily inherently destined to be tainted, some, say "guidance & discipline" actually ought be more neutral until entered into a particular context but the adjectives "major" and "big" don't add much (could direct, like say when someone critically cites a soft drink but other than some comments just gives the name more (add www.subvertise.com) recognition (www.killercoke.org) --why fault someone for thinking a "soft" drink might be not be so free and not the least bit controvertial but yet one does have, even when it might appear benign beyond question, yet there is some responsibilty for those aspire to be make an "informed consumer (not in the relatively over consumption sense, just basic needs and preferences day-to-day) choice", --empty like calling U.S. "defense" rather than "That system of public subsidy and private profit is what is called free enterprise.", or even: ...a kind of socialization of costs and risks. ... maintained at public expense, then handed over to private profit..." |

Connecting patrons and curious seekers of Revolution Books (Cambridge, MA, USA -or any number of community resources, Lucy Parsons) with independent book shops, websites, community radio, and more resources regarding a way to link virtual and actual support of such sources with those who are grateful or have come to expect such resources.

A link between them and (www.affero,net, .org. .com - still one of the few that wisely uses three domains) Affero (www.affero.net) to direct support to someone of their choosing. ( details)

In thinking about one such shop in Lynn (MA) there's certainly nothing to prevent a form of *lynn*.indymedia.org, etc. from connecting with people in the area regarding "low prices, low wages, low on the dignity scale". While on it, connecting people in Lynn, Revere, and other areas around Boston (any city) as a way to connect with Free Speech Radio News and various community radio also isn't prevented. Taking the form used by FSRN as noted on the Labor Day special (n etwork of worldwide reporters) who bring together each newscast. A form of that also for Boston area (and again other areas) reporters, more formally connecting sister stations and resources to mind the gaps between what already exists; on the FSRN "mod el' but interconnect many local-to-global community news areas in a bi-directional and multifarious way.

ActIndy - sorry no 'debt card' sponsors, though maybe some communityAds.

An example, or trend maybe, a form of underwriting peace and justice began this week. DN!. which can be heard (AirwaveWEB) each weekday from noon to 1 p.m. on www.wzbc.org, 90.3 FM, began being sponsored (the concept can be neutral, like "media" not defaulting to corporate relations) by Whats Up Magazine.

Much more in the spirit of flyer postings and such, CommunityAds, can be done, including pointers to action, events, talks, information, resources, connecting with IMC Center and Newswire articles.

Independent of technical abilities of IMC more of what surely already occurs can happen more often by connections being formed by article postings and individuals and organizations in a Mind the Independent Media Gap way. Also, IMC postings do not have to be treated as a serial pool of information, last in first "read", there ought to be follow-up and more connections to actions resulting from awareness of concerns.

For instance as noted further below, for anyone who thought uncritically maybe that the U.S. hands out candy and democracy all throughout the world: in the 'Forward Strategy for Democracy', noted, apparently for anyone who didn't already know about the U.S. support for dictators of capitalism in efforts to secure stabilty for profits and generally prevent the 'threat of a good example'.

It is the response to this 'news' that ought matter; hopefuly t r u t h o u t and others will highlight this.

Yes, glad to see a reference to the radio in Boston, the world via webcasting! The Local Edition (Thursday 6 p.m., www.wmbr.org, 88.1 FM, -why isn't the news more prominent at this site? reminder: Fundraising-a-thon next week! I recall Mark Weaver saying last year that monies are needed just to maintain existing equipment in addition to updates or equipment and needs).

This past Thursday, November 6, 2003 LE aired a nicely prepared segment by Andy Shin and Mark Weaver regarding Amer Jubran. In addition , of course, see Boston's IMC center article and other references.

As I note elsewhere, in reference to ActIndy, it is now safe for underwritten, 'thank our corporate underwritters' radio to mention Amer Jubran.

Not them, but one form of state, I mean, public radio, specifically one of the two 'NRP radio stations in Boston whereby as of November 7, 2003 it was "safe" to mention Amer Jubran during 'Headline, hourly local? news.

Along these lines F.A.I.R. was mentioned on the same radio station in one of their programs; not as explicit as this, but the name Fairness and Accuracy in reportiong was actually noted by someone other than a caller. In was in context of being critical or reflecting reality about a former president. In came up that even programs that are not documentaries ought to strive for truth. Why not the sme standard applied to news as pointed out by a caller.

Stab it `n` Steer, 91.5 FM, Fridays, 8-10 p.m., Akira Kamiya, AK noted the 'Tell us the Truth' tour, Billy Bragg, Jenny Toomey (Tsunami, Simple machines, Future of Music Coalition - was on either Alternative Radio or National Radio Project - not have link now and much more...)

Seemed like a fine time to have also mentioned Martin Voelker, not a sister station reference, but a station cross-reference!

WMFO ('MFO) and all its 'ola IM pronouncments and its one turntable must be a challenge to keep things smooth even on freeform radio!

Some times website pages 'go missing' maybe links changes related to 'major' being added to the declaration of by an earlier press statement.

From Channel 4 News cache:

While the world's attention has been fixed on the war in Iraq, Dispatches reporter Sandra Jordan and producer Rodrigo Vasquez risk their lives to reveal the shocking level of daily violence and murderous hate in the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian civilians live under the threat of Israeli Defence Force attacks that do not discriminate between militants and children. Israeli setlers live in fear of suicide attacks.

But it is not only Palestinians and Israelis who are dying. Since the Gulf war, three Westerners have come under Israeli army attack.

An American peace activist was crushed to death by an IDF bulldozer; a British peace protester was shot in the head by an IDF sniper and remains in a coma; and last weekend, a British cameraman was shot dead by the IDF.

Within hours of arriving Sandra and Rodrigo are shot at and tear-gassed by Israeli troops breaking up a memorial service for Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist crushed by an Israeli Army bulldozer two days before.

That sets the tone for a five-week stay in which they document the shooting by Israeli troops of the British peace campaigner Tom Hurndall, the death of James Miller, the award-winning cameraman who worked extensively for Channel 4, killed as he filmed Israeli troops bulldozing Palestinian homes, and the deaths and mutilation of many innocent Palestinians and Israelis.

The Dispatches team reveals what life is like in what has become a fully blown war zone. Their film captures the aftermath of an Israeli missile attack that assassinates a leader of the deadly Hamas group. Children who happen to be playing in the street nearby are killed or have limbs blown off.

They film the aftermath of an attack in which Israeli troops fire modified tank shells that explode in mid air above densely populated civilian areas and spray thousands of razor sharp darts, or flechettes, in an arc some 300 metres long and 90 metres wide. The team encounters sniper fire from Israeli watchtowers, and endures tank shelling alongside a class of terrified school children.

In one of the most shocking moments in the film, Dispatches captures heartbreaking scenes in a Palestinian hospital minutes after Tom Hurndall was shot through the head, rescuing a seven-year-old child sheltering from gunfire.

While Hurndall lies in a corner, kept alive by a life support machine, his colleagues and Palestinian doctors negotiate frantically with the IDF to transfer him to an Israeli hospital, and to obtain safe passage for the Palestinian ambulance that will carry him. Hours later, with the help of the British Embassy they finally succeed, and embark on a hazardous journey to the Egyptian border. Hurndall remains in a coma.

Jordan and Vasquez also investigate the death of James Miller, the award-winning cameraman. They find that eyewitnesses tell a story sharply at variance with the official Israeli account.

Since September 2000, some 2,000 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli Defence Forces, who routinely use F16 fighter jets, helicopter gunships and tanks to bomb and shell densely populated Palestinian residential areas. The victims include some 350 children.

In the same period Palestinian armed groups have killed more than 700 Israelis, including some 90 children. The victims were all killed in deliberate attacks, including suicide bombings.

The Question of Palestine: Edward Said's Activist Legacy - Friday, October 24, 2003 6:30-8:30 p.m. MIT 54-100, Cambridge, MA.

A discussion about the intellectual and activist work of Edward Said. Guests include Elaine Hagopian, Naseer Aruri, and Noam Chomsky. Sponsored by ADCMA, The Boston Committee for Palestinian Rights, and The Arab Student Associations of Boston University and MIT


Speaking truth to empire across the U.S. on Tuesday, October 21, 2003 at Northeastern University, Snell (110 Forsyth Street in between Ruggles T and NEU Green / E line...).

Rachel Corrie, a symbol to "Radiate in Peace" (as with helicopters the Israeli army does not make bulldozers -cat'killer in some hands does) as is Edward Said who is connected beyond his citing one of her letters. RIP can be the base of, and for, many people expressing a desire for peace in no way discounted as being idealistic or like fresh air, who could not wish it, but with underlying foundations of consistent principles, unlike 'spreading democracy' throughout the world via 'installing' dictators, for everyone, everywhere, with practical and realistic ways of achieving, like truth, the best or ever further extension of an example of an ideal.

I share a general letter I sent to a NU (Northeastern University) "Antiwar" student group who I would add ought include in attendence at open public events more people who like students represent the community, in order to complement their efforts and concerns. The same goes from strengthening connections between organizations, across communities too more sharing in efforts that connect the local-glbal spere of covern. In teh case of ISM and many others in terms of who is aware and connected to their efforts it might be akin to saying what is likely a fact that Noam Chomsky is much more known throughout the world than in the United States, or even of issues of geographical historical proximity to them far too many people in the U.S. ought know and reflect and react on matters related to Latin American and much else throughtout.

This began as a comment about reference and "events" in general at NEU and in Boston area.

During the summer I probably had a similar comment when I commented how so often flyers I posted about "community" radio and events, (Active) Citizen Resources, lasted maybe a day or two. I contacted SLAP, another student group, to ask if they notice similar things, or if they would suggest another place in addition to student center to post items but, as all too often I got no response.

I would hope to see anyone who post events and is connected with organizations, to provide reference links to websites and complement with phone numbers and generally provide as much information as possible to connect broadly (and up to more people in community to seek out too), and as for the "closed" nature of email groups for them to be complemented by more "open" forums and ways of, as I say minding the gap of awareness and actions. More postings in Boston's IMC about forums and general activities students and other community members are up to would certainly be welcome. And all too oftens it appears an oston's Indepenent media Center, www.boston.indymedia.org and IndyGlocal (www.indymendia.org) are much underuntilized ny organizations and individuals.

I'm about to update a dated act-events resource and I still have to update AirwaveWEB flyer to include music related shows but if it's not too odd I hope you don't mind my attempt to connect.

For Linda P., No Censorship Radio, the reason John Pilger (www.robert-fisk.com/john_pilger.htm) might have sounded familiar when you were on air might be related to his being described as the 'Noam Chomsky of Australia' or something to that effect but I can't locate now. I suspect like Professor Chomsky he does not want to be personified. Also in Manufacturaing Consent or Noam Chomsky:" A Life of Dissent, probably both, credit is given to individuals worldwide who through their efforts amomng much else, when he arrives for a talk it's not soley dependent on 'word of mouth'.

HUMAN-RIGHTS LAW IN THE AMERICAS: ENFORCEMENT & EVASION

A Discussion with Noam Chomsky & Jennifer Harbury Moderated by Maria Aguiar

Tuesday, February 18, at 7 pm MIT Room 26-100 (and overflow in 34-101)

Open to all; admission is free; but please arrive early

DETAILS

We will discuss the enforcement and evasion of human-rights law in the Americas. How is a concern for human rights reflected in the domestic and foreign policy of various nations? How can government officials and others be held accountable for violating human rights? In tackling these questions our guests will help us look at things systematically and in historical perspective.

NOAM CHOMSKY is an Institute Professor at MIT. Known for his re-invention of linguistics, cognitive psychology, and aspects of philosophy, he is equally (if not more) sought after for his analysis of politics, the mass media, and US foreign policy. Over the decades, from Vietnam and East Timor to Nicaragua and Haiti, Professor Chomsky has helped expose the worst sins of the biggest government.

JENNIFER HARBURY is a human-rights attorney who represents and defends political prisoners in the US and elsewhere. After graduating from Harvard Law School she worked in Central America to protect refugees and others tormented by on-going violence. Ever since the disappearance of her husband, a leader of the Mayan resistance movement in Guatemala, she has also worked to expose his killers and their official sponsors. Her struggle has helped bring recognition for the thousands of other victims; it has convinced the US Congress to investigate human-rights and other abuses perpetrated by the US State Department and the CIA; and it has forced the US Supreme Court to contemplate the responsibility of US officials.

This event is the first part of our Spring Colloquium on Human Rights, which is co-sponsored by the MIT Large Event Fund, the MIT History Faculty, the MIT Department of Political Science, the MIT Anthropology Program, and the MIT Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies."

Though I'm usually relatively organized virtually speaking I have still yet to locate a reference by either Norman Solomon, David Barsamian, Phillip Babich (all three connected in their pursuits and with Making Contact) whereby mention is given to Boston public radio having 'two of the worst' and another noting the effective blockade on eastern (U.S) seaboard of independent media ( Alternative Radio on public radio stations aired by others).

Hopefully Democracy NOW! will air.

This was a rather lengthy question session, more of which was aired during NCR, 19 minutes comprised one person who began quite confrontational questioning Noam Chomsky's legitimacy as a linguist (mathematics, intellectual history among much more) to t alk about Middle East. She began by saying 'how can you...'and in sucession claiming he was wrong on five points. When he wasn't being interrupted by her he responded to each in turn without ever asking her to repeat and even extended to a six.

He provided each with names, source references, even went back further in time than necessary in terms of historical context and remarked that he understated the case of one point.

At the end of the exchange she said 'you obviously have the facts' but I agree with Linda P. that it appeared to be less than an authentic apology.

Another question that comes to mind was aired during the hour or so question period provided during Mark Weaver's program. Someone said you certainly read a lot of papers, it's impressive'. "It's not impressive, it's a lot of hard work". He usualy en ds each talk with stating it's all within reach for citizens to do what one can to affect change where one can realistcally change the course. Attention was called to prioritzing. Though he is aware of other parts of the world, Africa for instance, he fo cus his attention. In Fateful Triangle he writes when asked for a title he can usally be sure the title 'Conflict in the Middle East' will be apt and relevant.

November 22, 2002:

 

First a brief summary from NCR, not to be confused with NCP (WZBC's No Commercial Pontential), and I'm usually quicker, I just noticed the significance of National Radio Project (NRP); I wonder if it's intentional.

Amer Jubran (see Boston's IMC for details -another song for David Rovics maybe, 'you don't need corporate media, connected individuals, organizations and independent media do just fine) did a phone interview with a Linda and Mark.

Chuck interviewed Jimmy Tingle (recorded this afternoon) who offered 5 pairs of tickets to his show. I liked the one about some people not taking public transportation because they miss the comforts of their car so an idea is to have anyone who is going to say Cape Cod head to South Station, and then all the cars connect to form a train and get towed by one tow truck. You'd still get to enjoy the bumber-to-bumber effect!

Linda spoke with Matthew Pavonetti, Adbusters. Maybe: In conjuction with BND, how about 'refrain from corporate media day' (if you already do fine or as in the case of Howard Zinn who must endure listening to Bush recite a speech for professional reasons) and extend the awareness of independenemt media, bookshops, music, food, etc.

For Boston BND, you know those paper bags complete with an ad of the name of the shop, maybe some stylish bags with creative thoughts afixed and groups of people walking back and forth along Newbury Street (slow like I recall most people on Oxford Street in London doing) and because of the relatively narrow sidewalks in Boston you won't forcefully prevent anyone from consuming but maybe you slowdown some corporate profits.

"Carla Brown, who wrote a Harvard dissertation on the subject.

Recently the Infinite Mind had a program on touch, far reaching! Touch and information regarding positive affects on low birth weight babies in terms of weight gain, etc.

I didn't realize that some of the Cambrdige Forums are uploaded to public radio, for instance I heard from Carla Brown on NCR, that Dr. Helen Caldicott will soon most likely be heard by more people.

Also on NCR was a report produced by Aimee Smith (who I mistakingly named in Boston's IMC) and Mark Weaver regarding the Amer Jubran Defense Committe who were at INS in Boston on November 15, 2002 at 8:00 a.m.

Apparently free speech, public assembly, civil liberties when not confined to "forced zones" is viewed as a threat to misued and misguided power forces. See Boston's IndyMedia for more and One King is one too many (OnePalestine.org).

2 cents: If public radio, especially in the Boston area is either reasonably ignored (and you choose independent sources) because of its corp.., I mean underwriting bias or because of its narrow range of voices, literally and otherwise (just naming two ra tional reasons) then this results in them remaining to carry on the same. Unlike corporate newspapers public radio can be challenged.

And when it is no longer accepted that vast expressions of reality are missing from "mass media", more accurately from corporate media and when more people, mass number of them, begin getting news from independent sources then awareness about Amer Jubran will move beyond some active, concerned and dedicated citizens.

If you know of the sitcom Sanford and Son, there's a connection somewhere , maybe, Grady was taking care of the house and while cleaning he said: "Fred said for me to keep the house clean. I got to get it clean first!"

I wish I knew more about Dwayne Dickinson who gave moving account regarding Jill Stein out front of Suffolk University. Reminded me of the UMASS "free speech zone" (Mumia, debates, sidewalks...) when supporters of the-man-who-thinks or thought he invented the Internet nearly pushed some people into the bay. I had a summary of the day from Boston Common and then Dudley to UMASS but lost to accidental escape key when editing on the fly rather than from file.

FSRN Autism and virus, mentioned but doctor who spoke was from a different perspective and in the time allowed hardly enough to discuss fully. For more: Dr. Bernard Rimland, Autism Society of America

The intent of the above is to highlight an evolving process to expand upon local actions in those specific areas and further existing connections between Boston and Cambridge.

Posting in IndyMedia's Open Publishing Newswire can have the effect of an actual bulletin board, one way, closed communication. Rather than a topic, be it a news report or action or process being expanded upon. In its current form facilitating and complmenting actual organizing and strengthening of community is limited in this forum.

If IMC articles and Newswire postings do not extend outward, to other organizations and individuals, it is liklely to be limited as a means to broadley connect. Someone who does not know it exits or who does not use Internet may be less likley to hear various views or inclined to continue using primarily corporte media or continue their activist pursuits independent of the IMC and other such media. Maybe leading to a dichotomy of sorts. AirWaveWEB will be trying as one way to connect (active) citizens, an attempt to smooth things out.

Limited mention if any in IMC regarding another person being taken into INS custody. A women in Boston who gave me a flyer about Roger Calero (I think I heard of him from the event Independent Media at a Time of War (Green Festivals' Program Schedule -that Martin aired) was unfamilar with the IMC.

I'm not implying that IMC denotes a mirror image of all that active citizen have as concerns and actions. There's ways to connect and complment each other from the airwave to the streets, and Internet, etc.

FSRN connects via Pacifica's network, and as Deepa says along and over 50 communiy radio stations, and active listeners share with other individuals and organizations.

Allston-Brighton Free Radio fix:

 

Friday, March 21, 2003

It's noted and appreciated when WZBC radio extends their weekday half-hour broadcast, sometimes a full hour, of Democracy NOW!, a form of radiating in peace via its connected on-air reports, references to Iraq Journal, www.ellsberg.net, Not in Our Name, Veterns for Common Sense, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, and many more, and connecting with various resources such as Z magazine, Znet, Global Exchange, and as referred to in the webcasting archive of text and pointers to audio that's available via WebActive. And Free Speech Radio News, www.fsrn.org......

The second installment of a "Public Service" Radio Renoucement Vaccine, first being ACT-1 (not able to index so it's serial scroll on through), Com-Tech-1.

Recurrent expressions of the sort shown on February 15th, 2003 are evident by the string of worldwide protests and various actions reported at the top of the Democracy NOW!, what has become a daily feature highlight.

Segments:


  • Boston / Worldwide Radio thanks to efforts by Martin Voelker, John Grebe, Chuck, Linda, Mark, Aimee, Nancy, Marc and David...give your feedback but don't overwhelm 'em!

  • Non-news about University Library Resources and Connecting with Extended Community

  • Radiate in Peace, banners with reference pointers

  • 'NRP public service? for all "the people", Cavalcade of Generals, weapon "improvements", one bomb one target

  • MIT "POLITICS, JUSTICE, and SOCIAL CHANGE" course live via webcast on Thursday's (also OpenCourseWare
  • I let Martin Voelker, No-U-Turn Radio, (http://wmfo.org, 91.5 FM, AirWaveWEB) know that I appreciate his efforts. I have been supportive mostly via electronic mail and I make frequent references in Web pages and in IndyMedia's Newswire but yesterday I had to call after he said on air that along with John Grebe, Sounds of Dissent (How many email addresses does he have?) were going to be airing Democracy NOW!

    The possibility of hearing it before noon as aired by WZBC's daily weekday half-hour broadcast was quite welcome. I hung up so quick that I didn't get a chance to nag him about mentioning 'Znn and other of the likes of "officials says", "Washington-Media, corporate-'Amerika, etc. (by way of noting them in affect adding to already extensive name recognition but he mentioned lesser known independent media. He did mention IndyGlobal and Boston's IMC United for Just with Peace (their URL name changes have stabilized!) and United for Peace.

    A form of Radiate in Peace (RIP) is needed to connect broadly such efforts with various forms of independent media, etc.

    The dreaded "no story to tell yet" or who knows:
    (http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=11788) A lot of people doing something via IMC Newswire -hackphrasing M. Moore.

    Segment list

    Z Magazine, Znet... is a fine example of extensive resources and in the case of February 15, 2003 the site had a connection link to the worldwide actions.

    Any banner, especially one that is likely to be seen by many people, not just those who presumably are already active news seekers or have a degree of informed dissent and awareness and support of independent media, unlike (See Deterring Democracy, etc.) "Newspaper of Record" but together in addition to a banner sound bite of sorts have a web resource that radiates to many references, gateway to connect various resources, one-to-many, can be beneficial.

    A banner message complemented with for example, www.radioateinpeace.org or an existing web site, www.unitedforperace.org.

    Also there was much that was noted in the brief and concise talks by the speakers yesterday at MIT in front of student center across from 77 Mass. Avenue, but I don't recall any reference to anything other than 'the media". Why not make a reference to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (F.A.I.R) and others who complement with actions from research and reflections on practice by corporate media and independent media sources and media activist resources ( media matters, limited at this time).

    Segment list

    More Non-news about Library Recources and Extended Communities

    Yesterday I wanted to print a page of AirWaveWEB flyer for further copies to distribute more widely information about existing radio resources available in Boston area and to listeners worldwide via webcasting (purposely keep reapiting this) but I was unable to make it to NEU library to make use of a printer that my alumni card still offers.

    Since I am located near Tufts Medford / Somerville campus and because I was going to be heading by there I was going to print about no more than 5 pages, something I do maybe once or twice a year or so.

    Not to my surprise, though, Internet access is still available without an physical or computer password ID, but now an ID is required to use the new printer access stations.

    There's no reason for me to expect to be able to use Tufts library resources, or to assume living near the campus grants anyone more access than another non-student living elsewhere. I'm about a mile away, quite out-of-range of any possible virtually constant house parties! Also why should someone not paying tuition expect anything from such an institution.

    There's also Inter-library access cards available via Boston Public Library (BPL) or possibilities for various university campuses to share resources with current and former students but as the case of the former the application makes it clear that it is not meant to be a convenience to allow someone to take out a book using their BPL card from say Boston College.

    In order to qualify you must state a research project and what particular books you require. It is not meant for any informal lifelong learning (silly sounding but don't know how else to characterize or can recall a group focusing efforts prekindergarten and beyond) other than going to library and using what you want in but again why should the threshold be lowered to allow access such as those who pay tuition.

    Segment list

    But I do expect peace and justice related efforts to better connect with the extended Medford / Somerville and beyond community. I did see someone at Davis Square carrying a sign. He told me about Tufts next Monday, 3-7 p.m. meeting at Chapel for open discussion and organized efforts.

    I'm somewhat "connected" but I had forget the name of WMFO radio station building, Curtis Hall, and don't think I ever knew, till yesterday, that it is located at Boston Avenue and College Ave. at Post Office.

    I want to stop in and try not to interrupt Hank Faunce who was on and see if coud talk with Martim before he left but security was such that I did't find it welcoming.

    Hi professor Gary Goldstein I meant to contact you the first time I heard Martin Voelker refer to you and a teach-in event that was held at Tufts. Not only because I have taken childhood education courses in the summer but as a Medford resident I see a lot of missed opportunity to better connect peace and justice events with the community. Though I often hear about them there's many people who I suspect would not know. I also meant to mention it to the communications person, Margaret?

    An extended report, more than was aired on FSRN, and elsewhere, by Chuck U from March 15 Mass. Ave. Standout was aired this week on the local edition of the WMBR news. It was noted that students from Sacred Heart high school, Kingston, MA. There is no question of will they future active citizens, they already are.

    Maybe once Internet Radio Players I won't loose Hank or Martin (WMFO) and others because of corporate radio interference and loss of signal. On a cheapo portable radio I loose Hnk in Somervile/Cambrdige line and as far north as Melrose from a signal at Medford/Somerville.

    Hank once noted that he is able to freely express himself without any sort of governor controlling his manner of on-air commentary. He once noted he would not be let go unless of course he 'pulled out a revolver'. Since WMFO radio station looks quite secure I suspect it would have to be an inside job if anyone ever did such a thing!

    Segment list

    Ever hear 'NRP (http://www.radioproject.org) refer to a TV news program at 10:00 p.m. EST? Why would they possibly draw listeners of underwriting away? Could it be that the time coincides with another presentation of reality throughout the world. I think the time coincide with BBC.

    "Saddam and Hitler are friend of MIT and Harvard" - I saw this posting along Mass. Ave. but not sure which sense it could be taken.

    "Targeting Iraq", "War on Iraq", though not my intention to echo the "Official's Say" media so-called public radio also uses some naming convention, "America Goes to War" maybe to a lesser degree in terms of fear factor (don't forget, watch Friday is usually the day to further highlight such fears because maybe people have more time to think with the weekend upon the) but in all cases, like those three words that Noam Chomsky, refers to regarding the U.S, and Great Britain regarding their 'ole friend-turned-Foe, 'with our support' now it leaves out factors related to international law, getting countries to "sign-on" irrespective of vast signs of opposition by people.

    Someone from the Islamic Education Center noted the "coalition forces" in reference to a letter to U.S. tat included a request 'not to use radiation again' and the host was quick, and displaying indoctrination, maybe, we he said 'Deleted Uranium (DU) and any possible factors is might cause are in dispute rather than following on he must shed light away.

    Ira Jefferies (sp), maybe a problem of induction, she found "strong support" as she noted even in a 'democratic community' of mostly "African Americans" as if everyone from a characterized neighborhood thinks and acts the same.

    Someone expressing thoughts said, 'it changed for me as soon as the bombing began' (what's that actually 12 years ago?) another one of those decrees, now it's time to rally behind so-called leaders; like Juliana Hatfield who expresses in her song about not having idols, I agree. I have many people who are influences and who I respect but following the leader and London Bridge is fun for children as it should be. This person went on to say, it's something we do', apparently a reference to the U.S. handing out candy and democracy through out the world.
