Alternative Media

How often do you get a chance to see an interview with Noam Chomsky on a television channel? How often do you get a chance to hear a presentation by Arundhati Roy or Howard Zinn? The so called "Free Press" and "Free Media", have been hijacked by the empire. It is high time that we create a universe of alternative information. The journey has already begun, to create an alternative media that can say loudly that the "King is nude".

Alternative Radio is a weekly one-hour public affairs program offered free to all public radio stations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, South Africa, Australia, and on short-wave on Radio for Peace International. AR provides information, analyses and views that are frequently ignored or distorted in other media.
South End Press is a nonprofit, collectively run book publisher with more than 250 titles in print. Since our founding in 1977, we have tried to meet the needs of readers who are exploring, or are already committed to, the politics of radical social change.

Democracy Now!'s War and Peace Report provides our audience with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S.corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists, ordinary people from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, the War and Peace Report hosts real debates - debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.
Hear Arundhati Roy's presentation “Instant-Mix Imperial Democracy, Buy One Get One Free”, presented in New York City at The Riverside Church on May 13, 2003 from Democracy Now!
