On June 14, the group Unconventional Michigan is hosting a “consulta” for people either planning to attend the protests against the Republican National Convention (RNC) or for those who are interested in more. Mediamouse.org will be doing a workshop on independent media and the corporate media in the context of mass mobilizations. In the media workshop we’ll be briefly covering independent media at past mobilizations against the RNC, what is planned for this year’s RNC, and facilitating a larger discussion on when–and if–it is strategic for radicals to eschew the corporate media and deal exclusively with independent media.
Here’s the information on the consulta:
Unconventional Michigan presents:
Shutting down the RNC: Michigan Consulta!
For about a year, groups across the nation have been organizing mass resistance to the Republican National Convention (September 1-4th) in Minneapolis/St. Paul. One of these groups is Unconventional Michigan; a state wide group getting people excited and prepared to go to the Twin Cities with the purpose of shutting down the RNC. In order to accurately prepare, inform, and hype folks up Unconventional Michigan is planning a one day consulta comprised of many workshops such as:
* Independent Media
* Legal and Medical Support
* Plugging into Actions Planned against the RNC
* Direct Action
The consulta will be on Saturday June 14th at the Northstar Center:
106 Lathrop St. Lansing MI 48912.
Registration starts at 9AM!
A $5 dollar donation is suggested
