And there's more! Much more!

Posted by Mitchell - November 6, 2003 (entry 111)

This came across the wires this morning. CMA will have a table presence at Chicago's Tell Us The Truth tour date on Monday Night (7:30pm, at Park West), but word just came down that there's going to be more:

Join us Monday afternoon and learn more about the fight against big media!

Artists Billy Bragg, Tom Morello, Lester Chambers, Mike Mills and Boots Riley will join together with Common Cause President Chellie Pingree and Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch Director Lori Wallach to host a panel discussion on Monday, November 10, 2003 at 1:30PM at the HotHouse, 31 E. Balbo in Chicago.

This event complements a 13-date tour featuring Bragg, Morello and Chambers (of the Chambers Brothers). The Tell us the Truth Tour includes concerts and awareness raising on current media reform and trade issues, including the upcoming Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) summit in Miami (Nov. 19-21). With support from unions, environmental, religious and media reform groups - including the AFL-CIO, Citizens Trade Campaign, Common Cause, Free Press and the Future of Music Coalition - this tour will be the loudest, angriest, funniest and most effective challenge to corporate domination of the public discourse in recent history.
