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

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

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
