      Cascade Media Convergence September 19th-21st
      From the open publishing newswire: Invitation to be part of the Cascade Media Convergence, a weekend of workshops, networking sessions and for community based media makers and artists taking place September 19th-21st. Events will primarily take place at the University of Oregon, Turnbull Center at 70 NW Couch in Portland's Old Town. 

      The Cascade Media Convergence will be an experiment in the power of democratic community based media. Along with sharing our skills and examples of awesome media based organizing, we will look to find ways to better integrate the work we are doing as media makers and artists on a regional level and begin the discussion of how we can build a media movement. Consider this an open invitation to initiate a process, we're not looking to be the final word on alternative media organizing in the Pacific Northwest, but we want to create a space to explore the possibilities of closer collaboration.

 Obama exceeds the worst of his predecessors. He’s guilty of repeated high crimes. They’re too grave to permit. They can’t be allowed to go unpunished
