On September 20 - 23, 2000 in San Francisco, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) hosted the radio industry's annual convention. One of the most powerful lobbies in the country, the NAB represents corporate media and works tirelessly to keep control of the airwaves away from the public and firmly in the hands of big business.
In 2000, media activists fought back.
Activists from across the country took to the streets of San Francisco to let the NAB know that the public demands democratic media. Please check out the resources below to learn more about the protests, the NAB and the ongoing fight for democratic media.
