Stay Tuned!!! REF: last years proclamation: on Rogue Indi Media Center http://rogueimc.org/en/2005/04/4404.shtml
This Year’s PROCLAMATION
to be submitted to Ashland City Council.
* An informed citizenry is a cornerstone of democracy.
* An informed citizenry depends on unrestrained press, which provides greater access to information, more points of view and greater diversity of thought and fact.
* The trend toward the consolidation of media ownership has resulted in journalistic practices that hinder public awareness by excluding or marginalizing minority and dissenting viewpoints.
* Fewer media voices can result in homogenized messaging and the silencing of many points of view.
* Democratic principles support the case for more independent media in this country, not less.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, John W. Morrison, Mayor of Ashland, do hereby proclaim the week of April 15 – 21 2007
INDEPENDENT MEDIA WEEK
and encourage all Ashland citizens to seek out and explore the rich diversity of independent media available within, and to our community.
