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. We were going to call it the ‘Radical Media Conference’, but then we got a ‘cease and desist’ letter from the lawyers of a US advertising agency…

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.
