"Media in Service of Activism"
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.”― John Lennon
Is a click on the LIKE button on Facebook enough to feed a child? Does your tweet about the latest situation in the Middle East count for anything? Can the pile of partly true, pseudo-scientific information and opinions of every computer literate person in the world be turned into use for greater good? And what is the role of Internet, socials networks, TV, radio, billboards and printed issues of journals and newspapers in all of this? How powerful and efficient can media be in the service of activism? How we can use them to promote peace, welfare, nuclear-free world and to turn public into mighty ally?
