Make your media independent on March 26!

On what will be the biggest public protest since February 2003, don’t just re-tweet the BBC. There are a wide range of radical media projects covering the protest, all working together to amplify the message from the streets. Let’s fill the media space with thousands of voices, and make the corporate media not only unreliable, but irrelevant!

Here are some things you can do before next Saturday, courtesy of visionOntv:

1) Make your website or blog into a media destination:

Embed a channel of the best anti-cuts / direct action video .

Embed the live-updating timeline in your blog or site.

2) Make your own TV. Learn how to create your own rapid-turnaround video reports.
