Social movements often struggle to create appropriate forms of communication which build links between people and communities, enable alternative voices to be heard and do not simply imitate official media. This evening brings together two leading figures in radical communications to share their experiences in Africa, Ireland and globally and discuss how to broaden the spaces of possibility.

“It is the view of NNI that a link to copyright material does constitute infringement of copyright”. (Section 7 National Newspapers of Ireland Further Submission to the Copyright Review Committee) ... read full story / add a comment
