PR firm tries to stop activists using the phrase 'radical media'
10 May 2011
On 8 and 9 October, Red Pepper will be part of a collective of radical media organisations hosting a conference featuring speakers including Michael Albert and John Pilger.

More information about the PR firm, and the conference itself (now renamed the 'Rebellious Media: Media, Activism and Social Change') can be found on the conference website.
The conference was initiated by Peace News. Video made by visionOntv, one of the conference partners.
