The three of us headed to Houston to help with with independent media, including a low power fm radio station which was being organized for the Astrodome. Upon our arrival in Houston, we learned that the Astrodome emergency radio station was again being blocked from broadcasting information to survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

We went to the Astrodome and spoke with people who were willing to speak with us. We listened to their experiences in the past and at the Astrodome. Please visit the following links for audio, photos and written reports published by Vinny, Blank and I.

Desde hace 23 días ellos viven en un campamento hecho de lonas y camas de unicel, en la plancha del Zócalo capitalino frente a la oficina del Jefe de gobierno, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO)*, ya que el año 2000 AMLO decreto que las condiciones laborales de los policías iban a mejorar, que tendrían un salario justo, un buen servicio medico, y que la corrupción dentro de la institución se iba a terminar.

It was a Good Day

Submitted by bradley on Sat, 2005/07/23 - 5:33pm.
it is so much easier for me to take photos than it is to write a journal entry, or in this case, a blog entry. i've had journals at different times in my life, but i do not spend much time these days writing or typing about my thoughts and feelings. but i should. i think we all should, really. but, i usually feel that action takes precedence to reflection and planning.

i'm not sure where to begin, since this is my first blog entry on the critical mass radio network website. at about four in the morning on july 23, i was looking at the moon over the santa monica mountains and thinking about the many people that have used their time and knowledge to help me out. i was mainly thinking about technical support related to the internet.
