Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism

program:

program date: 
Thu, 07/21/2011

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Sarah Sobieraj, author of Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Sobieraj explores the dynamics and costs of media obsession by activist groups.  She says the pervasive mediatization of politics has jeopardized the ability of dissenting groups to engage in public discourse and so has altered the very fabric of both social movements and the civil society that the news media claim to inform.

Her book is an ethnographic portrait of fifty diverse organizations over the course of two presidential campaign cycles. She argues that while most activist groups equate political success with media success and channel their energies accordingly, their efforts fail to generate news coverage and come with deleterious consequences.

Arthur Stamoulis talks about the Columbia Free Trade Agreement

Arthur Stamoulis of Oregon Fair Trade Campaign talks about the demonstration planned for Congressman Earl Blumenauer's Office on Monday, July 11 * 12:00 noon at 729 NE Oregon St (Near the 7th Avenue MAX Station)

Fifty-one union leaders were assassinated in Colombia last year — more than in the rest of the world combined. At least 17 have been assassinated so far this year.

As the Colombia Free Trade Agreement races towards a vote in Congress, our elected officials will be forced to pick a side.  Will they stand with union members, small farmers, human rights advocates and others in the United States and Colombia who oppose the FTA?   Or will they stand with the transnational corporations who profit off the violent suppression of workers' rights, the forced displacement of Afro-Colombians from their land and the dumping of subsidized agricultural commodities?

So far, Congressman Earl Blumenauer is "undecided" on the Colombia FTA.
