The Municipalist Research Group is bringing two influential media activists who have been part of radical and direct democracy movements: DeeDee Halleck (founder of Paper Tiger Television, Deep Dish Satellite Network and Democracy Now! TV) and Marisa Holmes (Occupy & Strike Debt). DeeDee and Marisa will join us in conversation about their work, including topics ranging from media politics in the age of Trump, feminism, public access, radical media, DIY aesthetics and more…

About the group: we’ve been organizing meetings, reading and research activities to collectively learn about and examine ideas around municipalism. Basically, municipalism asks questions about how to organize ourselves democratically outside of currently existing forms of institutional representation; and how to build transformative kinds of assembly and decision-making that rely on the broadest democratic base. So far, we’ve arranged readings and talks with and about Alan Moore, activists with Barcelona en Comu, Michael Hardt, Kathy Weeks, and others and there’s much more to come.
