More good news

Posted by Mitchell - September 5, 2003 (entry 84)

Yesterday, September 4, CMA had its most successful rally to date: there's a link to a report with photos on the left-hand column of the CMA website.

As we held the rally, it was uncertain whether or not the Senate Appropriations Committee would act in our favor with regards to passing a spending bill amendment which would help bleed the June 2 deregulations. It turns out that the Senate did act in our favor.

Finally, CMA (kind of) makes two appearances in this week's Chicago Reader: one on Aftermath, another on Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death .

But wait! There's more!: Make that three appearances in this week's Reader. The Reader's calendar also lists us as the *entire entry* for September 11:

11 Thursday: What did the Bush administration know and when? Why wasn't the military able to intercept the hijacked planes? Were there plans for a war in central Asia prior to September 11? What can we do? These are some of the 11 questions posed to nine experts and activists in the Guerrilla News Network's 35-minute documentary Aftermath: Unanswered Questions From 9/11. Tonight's Chicago Media Action-sponsored screening of the short will be hosted by WVON's Cliff Kelley and followed by a discussion. It starts at 6 (doors open at 5:30) at the Chicago Temple, 77 W. Washington; there's a suggested donation of $5. To reserve a seat call 866-260-7198 or e-mail

More: Our September 4 rally made it into Buzzflash. Look for the headline "Chicago Activists Rally at Tribune Plaza Against FCC 9/6"

There might be more media on the way. Stay tuned.
