Free the Airwaves!

San Francisco

During the National Association of Broadcasters Convention held September 20-23, protesters march to Clear Channel Communications, a broadcasting conglomerate that owns 1,009 national radio and television stations. Media Alliance, Prometheus Radio Project, and Project Censored are some of the organizations that put on the three-day rally. Since passage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the radio industry has become less and less competitive.
