First Alternative Media Meeting for G8 reporting to be held in Shibuya

G8 Summit will be held in Hokkaido, Japan from July-7th to 9th 2008. As an counter-event, people are planning/organizing People’s Forum G8 summit in Sapporo, Hokkaido on Sep. 21 2008, and in Tokyo people have launched a committee of 2008 G8 Summit-NGO Forum.

It is urgently needed to set a broader alternative media network to connect groups and movements along with these alternative events. Prior to this, ‘G8 alternative Media Committee’ was launched by independent-concerned people.

During the first meeting, it was suggested to materialize all plants/actions of common platforms held nationally-internationally in order to broadcast freely as many perspectives as there exist.

And in this coming meeting, all individuals who are interested in media issue on G8 will be welcome to bring ideas on how and what way of approaches be taken.
