There have already been over 1500 arrests from the protests in New York during the Republican National Convention this week. An A-Noise street correspondent just claimed this is the highest number of arrests from any protest in America yet. Can anyone confirm this? Listen in to live broadcasts of the RNC protests from the streets of NYC.
The A-Noise broadcast and archives fuse politics, art and culture to encourage activism and create a collective memory of our successes. This is not the predatory mainstream media, but a straight-up grassroots communication network, by the people for the people.
A-Noise is a collaborative project organized by independent sound makers to coincide with the protests at the Republican National Convention in New York City. Our goal is to create a welcoming and supportive structure that sound artists, journalists, radio groups, and activists of all skill levels can plug into during the RNC. The overall project will include workshops, editing workstations, and air-time programming on a coordinated webstream network of many stations.
We are conscious of gender, race, and class issues. We are committed to representing New Yorkers, and including and valuing contributions from all interested resistance communities. Your participation is essential!
Groups working on the A-Noise project include: free103point9, the New York Indymedia Sound Team, Rise Up Radio, Autonomedia, Enemy Combatant Radio, Portland IMC, and many amazing radio and sound allies around the country.
