Digital media have been a space of contestation for social movements. Many voices have been critical to the use of corporate social media, whereas others have promoted a conscious appropriation of commercial digital appliances against state and capitalism.

At the same time, anarchists have always been paradigmatic in building self-organized media (such as the Indymedia network) in hopes of counteracting the commercial influence of corporate media and creating space for mobilizing radical movements across the political spectrum, organizing protest, enabling counter-information, and communicating a cause.

On Wednesday June 20 at 19.00, Crisis Mirror invites a comrade to present and engage in a discussion about the pros and cons of digital media in radical action drawing on examples from Greece and Scandinavia.
