Roots of Radical Media at PSU next week

After a long hiatus the Portland Grassroots Media Camp/BMedia Collective have decided to restart the work we left off in September of 2008. We will be holding a mini PGMC next week at PSU that will act to support and build for the Cascadia Freedom Caravan that will be traveling to Detroit for the Allied Media Conference and the US Social Forum next month. Once we return the BMedia Collective will look to start a number community media projects including a larger PGMC in the fall. The caravan is still looking for donations to cover the costs of getting to Detroit, visit the BMedia website to make a contribution.
