The People's Media Hub | Protest the Tory Party Conference

As thousands of people calling for an alternative to cuts, inequality, racism and war gather to protest at the Tory Party Conference, all eyes will be on Manchester this October. 

But who frames the image and who sets the terms of debate? We know which side the big media corporations are on. That’s why we’re creating our very own live studio and media hub. 

The People’s Assembly has teamed up with Real Media and the Media Reform Coalition to organise a physical space equipped with cameras, audio recorders, laptops etc where people can meet and tell their story. 

The space will be a hub for bloggers, filmmakers, writers, editors, media activists and campaigners, where anyone interested in shaping the media message can network and produce with organisational support on hand. 

Our aim is both to deconstruct the pro-austerity coverage, and to facilitate alternative media. Alongside live-streamed interviews, filmmakers editing protest footage, and writers pumping out blog posts, there’ll be students, academics and campaigners pouring over the headlines and hosting Q&As on media democracy. 

We need your help to make this work so please get in touch. Link up your organisation, book a slot to do an interview, enquire about our tech support, or volunteer. 

Contact: or phone Alistair on 07826 541 052, or Thomas on 07955450796

Sunday 4th October - Wednesday 7th October, 10am to 6pm.
