FCC wants your vote for Pirate Truth Radio

In the past ten days, Prometheus Radio and media justice supporters have realized a major victory and an important step at the FCC. First, the victory: On July 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued its long-awaited verdict in Prometheus Radio Project v. the FCC, rejecting the FCC's attempt to further deregulate media ownership. (Watch Prometheus discuss this win on Democracy Now!.) Congratulations to everyone who fought for years to see this victory.

This was followed on Tuesday by an FCC proposal to ensure channels for new community radio stations in urban areas. Over the next month we will be working hard to ensure that their decision allows for as many new community radio stations as possible, and we need your voice and your financial support. Tell the FCC that media matters.

Tell the FCC to make community radio available in your town

Action Alert: Tell the FCC to save frequencies for community radio in your area!
