Time to Harvest Rebellion

Journalism's civil war is reported in wonderful detail.

The "time to harvest rebellion" against the commercial media that has "supplanted powers reserved for governments and civil society" is given life by examples from the valiant, determined campesinos and indigenous peoples from Mexico to Argentina, who are creating community media without permission or license from the governments that serve the powerful.

In providing us this look at the authentic democracies blossoming in the non-electoral social movements of the South, we get a glimpse of both the risks and rewards of communicating without the commercial gatekeepers--a war that, to succeed, requires both information and weaponry.
