::b media collective:: is working to bring up members of ANMCLA (Venezuela’s National Association of Alternative and Independent Community Media) to the Allied Media Conference and the US Social Forum in June. The goal is to share the delegates first-hand experience building an alternative media network rooted in communities in Venezuela, and form direct collective to collective ties for future cross-border collaborations.
The delegation will be the only non-government organized delegation of Venezuelan activists present at the forum. Members of the delegation include Gerardo Rojas, founding member of Voces Urgentes, Katrina Kozarek of Calles y Media, and Francisco Cortes of Radio La Vega, the oldest pirated radio station in Caracas. They will be participating in the spanish media track at the AMC and presenting a workshop at the USSF entitled Venezuela Bolivariana, a first-hand discussion of community media, urban collectives, and indigenous resistance in Venezuela from a grassroots perspective.
