Occupy Atlanta Demands FCC Stop Privatization of New Broadcast Channels

On December 1, 2011, the FCC visited Atlanta, supposedly to ascertain its communications needs. At a public meeting, members of Occupy Atlanta, the Communications Workers of America, along with locals from People TV, the Georgia Green Party and Black Agenda Report demanded the FCC STOP THE PRIVATIZATION OF NEW TV CHANNELS, that they CREATE NEW & DIVERSE NONPROFIT BROADCASTERS by awarding new broadcast licenses around the country, and that they GUARANTEE FUNDING OF COMMUNITY MEDIA by levying substantial license fees on commercial broadcasters and cable operators for the scarce public resources they use…. 

The FCC has complete footage, but has so far refused to post the video. 
FURTHER ACTION IS IMPERATIVE.

IF YOU THINK THE LAMESTREAM MEDIA ARE A DISGRACE AND A HUGE OBSTACLE
to real change in America why haven’t you sent at least a few dollars to The Greanville Post (or a similar anti-corporate citizen’s media?). Think about it.  Without educating and organizing our ranks our cause is DOA. That’s why our new citizens’ media need your support. Send your badly needed check to “TGP, P.O. Box 1028, Brewster, NY 10509-1028.” Make checks out to “P. Greanville/ TGP”.  (A contribution of any amount can also be made via Paypal and MC or VISA.)

THANK YOU.
