exciting thing about the actions surrounding the meeting are the
radio link-ups between Johannesburg and the rest of the world. There
are a couple of media projects doing this. Diversity-Radio
is a project to broadcast news and views from Johannesburg to internet,
local and comunity radios around the world. Joburb
Media is a media platform which includes diversity radio, as
well as other news reports and footage from the summit.
Aarth Summit is a Friends of the Earth initiative to collect
the voices of people affected by corporate activities, as well as
messages from well-known people. They also plan to play thousands
of noises inside the summit, each chosen by a member of the public
who is concerned about our future.
South Africa is a permanent radical news wire publishing news
from South Africa. They will be covering the protests at the summit.
