Jay Hamilton organized and led a panel titled “Mass Communication and Transnational Resistance: Independent Media Centers 20 Years On” at the Union for Democratic Communications international conference in Oakland. The panelists addressed the chequered legacy of IMCs, their growth and decline, their form and practice of online/online-assisted social activism since their emergence in Seattle 1999 during the global-justice action against the WTO, and the extent of its contributions to what media activism today and the foreseeable future might still be.
