of the new CD: "OTHER VOICES - ECHOES FROM A WARZONE" by Gordan

Participants in the discussion included:
Gordan Paunovic, freeB92, Head of New Media & Radioartist, Belgrade
Veran Matic, President ANEM, Belgrade
Jasmina Tesanovic, Writer, Belgrade

and members of the Radiocafe audience.
*The "other voices" from Belgrade are a dramatic example of the role the internet can play in making audible the voices that usually remain unheard in the prevailing government- or corporation- regulated media. But, in the wake of the success of the recent protests (J18, Seattle, etc.) which were based on the efficiency of the internet as an alternative information medium, the establishments - in London, Belgrade, Brussels, Washington - are beginning to reassert their authority in media matters. The demonisation of political or ideological dissidents as "media terrorists" may be the first stage in the restriction of free information exchange in the internet. Is this where the new anti-terrorist laws in Jugoslavia and Britain - and the recent restrictive actions of corporate ISPs in the U.S.A. - are leading?
An online Chat will permit participation from the network.
