TV TURNOFF WEEK April 22 - 28

Hi fellow jammers,

A handful of megacorporations now control most of the global 
information flows and routinely censor opinions that challenge 
their interests and profitability. 

What are we going to do about it?

TV Turnoff Week, April 22-28 is a start.  Millions of people leaving
their screens blank for a week is a powerful gesture of consumer
sovereignty and will lead to bigger things down the road.

If you are planning an action on your campus, high school or
workplace, check out <http://www.adbusters.org/>.  You can get some 
ideas there and download b&w and color versions of the poster below.

Check out the new 30-second TV Turnoff "Uncommercial."  It's a potent
little mindbomb and 60 public access stations have already agreed to 
air it.  If you can secure airtime in your area, we'll send a broadcast 
copy for free!  Email your address to tvturnoff@adbusters.org (specify 
VHS, 3/4", or BETA)

We've raised $3,500 to air the spot twice on CNN Headline News.  
Let's try to air it eight more times during the week leading up to 
April 22.  Each timeslot costs $1,750.  To contribute to this fund, 
please contact Allan MacDonald at 604-737-2583 or allan@adbusters.org.

For more specific information, contact Campaigns Manager Tom Liacas
at tvturnoff@adbusters.org.

For quick delivery of broadcast videos or for media interviews,
please call the TV Turnoff Hotline 1-800-663-1243.

Happy jamming.

Cheers from the staff & volunteers at Adbusters
