Noam Chomsky speaks with FSRN: A special offer to our grassroots supporters
In 2003, Free Speech Radio News was still getting off the ground and slowly spreading to radio stations across the country. Calling the young media project a "truly independent, truly grassroots, truly collective and truly non-corporate" program whose reporters were among "some of the best in community broadcasting," Noam Chomsky appealed for grassroots supports to help FSRN survive.
A decade later, FSRN has grown to include more than 200 correspondents around the world. The broadcast is now carried on about 100 community, college and tribal radio stations across North America.
As FSRN faces another financial crisis, Professor Chomsky has offered his support yet again. In May, he sat down with FSRN for an extended on-camera interview. The conversation touched on issues ranging from worker power to the contemporary media to the Occupy movement. FSRN's interview with Professor Chomsky will air on July 4. We’re offering our grassroots supporters the opportunity to be the first to see this interview, by making a contribution to FSRN.
- For $100, you will receive a DVD of FSRN's interview with Noam Chomsky or a copy of his his book Occupy.
- For $150, you can receive both.
- For $200, you can receive a copy of Occupy signed by Professor Chomsky.
This is an opportunity to have part of progressive history while helping FSRN continue to make history through its fiercely independent reporting.
As Professor Chomsky said when he spoke to FSRN in May:
"[FSRN is] worth public support because it’s bringing to the public things that they ought to know, that they ought to understand about the world, about their own circumstances, things that are not being brought to them at least in an honest way without distortion by the news sources that are regularly available to them. It’s a huge gap to be filled and Free Speech Radio is doing a very important job in filling it."
We hope you agree.
