Dear Cherie,

Next week, between Monday, February 5th, and Sunday,
February 11th, thousands of people will be meeting
in 68 countries to imagine a better world and to
start building it by connecting people, ideas, and
resources in every possible way.

264 meetings have been scheduled so far, and if there
is one near you, it'd be great if you could take part
in it. The meetings are all listed at:

For more details about this initiative, please see

You can also watch this two-minute video that I
taped yesterday for the people who are attending
these meetings:

And also this one, with comments from people who
attended a brainstorming meeting we had in New York
last week:

If you are interested but no meeting has been posted
where you are, we will do this again in March, and
we hope you can attend then.

Thanks so much for your support. We look forward to
what next week will bring, and to building this global
network with you.

The Media College of the University of the Poor

Reading & Writing are no longer enough.

If Thom Paine were organizing today he would be using video tape, web pages, and digital cameras, and all the new electronic media to get his messages across. This new media simultaneously engages both seeing and hearing, combining all manner of text, pictures, spoken word, sound and music. It has acquired a power once the exclusive domain of the written word.

The ability to understand and communicate with electronic audio/visual material is no less than the ability to read and write in the pre-electronic world. To educate and organize people around ideas and information in the present period it is essential to have a working knowledge of these new forms of communication.

Become a master of media.

Through the Media College you and your group can:

  • Learn how to use media in your organizing!
  • Learn how other groups have used media to further their goals!
  • Develop and make your own media!

The Media College is:

  • A project of The Poor Peoples' Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC).
  • Open to all members of the PPEHRC.
  • Free tuition.
  • Dedicated to securing the economic human rights for all people.

Basic e-mail is an effective outreach tool, whether you're organizing a demonstration or advocating against repressive legislation. Do you want to stop something, or start something? Are you more likely to achieve your goal by picketing, or petitioning? Once you've defined your goal, you'll want to identify your likely allies. Traditionally, this meant consulting your Rolodex. In cyberspace, it means finding the Usenet groups (also called newsgroups) and e-mail discussion lists where your issues are most likely to be addressed.

You can find discussion lists by using widely available Web search engines like AltaVista, or by visiting Web sites which track e-mail discussion lists, such as Publicly Accessible Mailing Lists (PAML). If you want to start your own e-mail discussion list, the Institute for Global Communications (IGC) offers this service for a modest fee.

Since Usenet groups are all topic-oriented, you'll find the relevant ones if you search by keywords that relate to your issue, in the newsreader that comes with your Internet service. You also can find relevant newsgroups by visiting the Usenet Info Center Web site. One of the most relevant:

Keep in mind that not all Usenet groups will be accessible, since your Internet service provider decides which are included with your service. For example, PeaceNet's newsgroups are available only to people who receive Internet service from IGC, and America Online's are only available to AOL subscribers.

You can also send electronic alerts to Web sites that feature action alerts, although there is no guarantee they will decide to feature yours. In addition to the MoJo Wire, other sites that host action alerts include IGC, Working Assets Long Distance, WebActive, and InterActivism.

The Internet is vast, and any information you send to one Usenet group or discussion list is likely to wind up on dozens of others. So it's not essential that you identify every single list and newsgroup. If you post information to one or two discussion lists, the chances are good that it will wind up being posted to half a dozen others. But the chances are also good that your e-mail alert will circulate in cyberspace for years, so it's important to include an "expiration" date, along with the necessary contact information. (I'm still getting occasional replies to a sign-on letter to President Clinton urging him to oppose the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which became law more than a year ago when Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996.)

Organizing in cyberspace is really not much different than organizing anywhere else. E-mail action alerts are the electronic version of the flyers that grassroots organizers hand out on street corners or at rallies. The difference is that e-mail alerts reach people far more people, reach them instantaneously, and cost nothing to distribute.

Audrie Krause is the founder and executive director of NetAction, a national nonprofit group which promotes the use of technology for organizing and advocacy.
