POLITICS:

RESIST - A SEARCH FOR PROFOUND AUTHENTIC FREEDOM

Resist is a new film to be released in 2009 with Gael Garcia Bernal.

"Resist is bringing you a live webcast with Gael Garcia Bernal, supported by Amnesty International UK

How will decentralised communications networks shift the way we understand poverty and our power to resist its causes?

Join the debate online on October 16th New York: 10am / London: 3pm / Mumbai: 7.30pm

Global media conglomerates no longer monopolise the ability to transmit messages both locally and internationally. The use of the internet, mobile phones, satellite radio and the declining cost of media technologies have transformed the way individuals and communities voice their concerns. Many have argued that these decentralised communications networks have lead to an increasingly democratic and accessible media culture. Yet there has been little discussion around how these networks might impact our understanding of poverty as well as serve as a means to resist its causes.

This event will ask how we can harness the power of these networks in order to more effectively depict and understand the complex web of reasons behind the existence of poverty. And can these networks in the long run open up a space for people who live in poverty to participate in the culture of political life?"
