Citizen Journalism and Civil Resistance Workshop

Posted: January 15, 2011 in News and Views

Workshop on Citizen Journalism and Civil Resistance– Madrid, Spain / March 20-23, 2011

To learn more or to apply, please see the flyer and application attached or email Today hundreds of civilian-based movements and campaigns for human rights, democracy, social justice, political freedom and other causes are being waged with participation by ordinary people, all over the world. Unfortunately, major global media broadcasters, newspapers and news services give little if any attention to the causes and work of these movements. This workshop will cover key strategic and tactical lessons of successful movements, examine the role of independent media in civil resistance, look at the impact of digital resistance and international actors, and offer practical guidance to citizen or authentic journalists in developing stories, doing investigative field reporting, initiating video reports, and other practical aspects of citizen journalism in countries where civil resistance is now being used. Co-hosting this workshop will be the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (, a nonprofit foundation based in the United States, and Narco News (, the world’s pioneering organization in authentic journalism and an online newspaper that covers democracy, the drug war, and other social and political events in Latin America.

If for some reason you are unable to open the documents attached, please feel free to email to request the application or flyer.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2011 (Received from ICNC).
