> Hi fellow jammers,

> A handful of megacorporations now control most of the global 
> information flows and routinely censor opinions that challenge their 
> interests and profitability.
> 
> What are we going to do about it?
> 
> TV Turnoff Week, April 22-28 is a start. Millions of people leaving 
> their screens blank for a week is a powerful gesture of consumer 
> sovereignty and will lead to bigger things down the road.
> 
> If you are planning an action on your campus, high school or 
> workplace, check out http://www.adbusters.org. You can get some ideas 
> there and download b&w and color versions of the poster below.
> 
> Check out the new 30-second TV Turnoff "Uncommercial." It's a potent 
> little mindbomb and 60 public access stations have already agreed to 
> air it. If you can secure airtime in your area, we'll send a 
> broadcast copy for free! Email your address to 
> tvturnoff {AT} adbusters.org (specify VHS, 3/4", or BETA)
> 
> We've raised $3,500 to air the spot twice on CNN Headline News. Let's 
> try to air it eight more times during the week leading up to April 
> 22. Each timeslot costs $1,750. To contribute to this fund, please 
> contact Allan MacDonald at 604-737-2583 or allan {AT} adbusters.org.
