Venezuela Bolivariana

::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.
