January 24th-26th: Be the Media
01/03/2003
A regional anti-war "convergence" in January will mark the first large local event that the Pittsburgh Independent Media Center will cover. The event, organized by the Thomas Merton Center and the Pittsburgh Organizing Group and endorsed by a diverse range of groups from across the region, will take place the weekend of January 24th-26th. Organizers expect thousands to participate in events ranging from a permitted anti-war parade to acts of civil disobedience by separate affinity groups.

The Pittsburgh Independent Media Center needs your help to cover the event. Contact info@indypgh.org to learn more about how to get involved, or post your news items to the newswire. Stay tuned to the site during the weekend for in-depth coverage.

Update:Anyone bringing a video camera and who would like to share footage, contact quinten. A meeting may be held before the convergence to plan coverage.
