Revitalizing Democracy, Confronting Corporate Power

The corporate media pay little attention to the growing grassroots movement seeking to do something about corporate power and propaganda run amok. All over the US groups of citizens are organizing meetings, discussions, conferences, protests, websites, initiative campaigns and other efforts focused on a common problem: corporate power's subversion of American democracy. The Democracy Revitalization Project is hosting its inaugural conference in Duluth, Minnesota, July 28 - 30. John Stauber of PR Watch is one of the presenters along with citizen activists, writers and academics including David Korten, Marjorie Kelly, John de Graaf, John Nichols, Monika Bauerlein, Ronnie Cummins, Mary Bottari and many others.
