Target: Clear Channel

Here we go again!
Global Exchange has called for a national day of protest to stop the media monopoly and specifically asked organizations or individuals to target Clear Channel, the media pig at the trough.

Code Pink led an awesome picket of CC a few weeks ago, and we're stepping up again! Please join us next Thursday, May 29th, 4:30pm in front of the Clear Channel office on SW Macadam. Pink attire is optional. We have lots of signs, but feel free to bring more.

We can kiss what's left of our democracy goodbye if Michael Powell and the Bush administration have their way with further media deregulation. We must do all we can to stop the FCC media deregulation!

How can you avoid Clear Channel - when it seems as if they are "radio" - They seem to be the GODS of the so called public airways?

Yes, that's why we MUST stop the FCC dereg -- it will be much worse if Colin's son has his way.

Clear Channel Billboard 22.May.2003 09:09

Shrew

Has anyone seen the latest Clear Channel billboard? There's one at the east end of the Morrison bridge. At first glance, the image appears to be a man, wearing black trousers but no shirt, and laying on his stomach, whose head has been crushed by the Clear Channel globe. If you look more closely, you see that it's actually a hand holding the globe, but it's hard to shake that first impression. Especially since it's an accurate view of the company's operations.

I think it's time for some billboard beautification. Anyone have experience?

Here's an example of some remodeling. If anyone engages in more neighborhood beautification, please post it here so we can get pictures.
