Rogue Indy Volunteers Wes Brain and Brenda Gould are headed to San Francisco to participate in LaborTech 2006 an international conference about labor media. This is very exciting stuff. Wes will be on a workshop panel Saturday morning. The workshop will view a dvd training video that was prepared by Wes's union SEIU #503. The video shows how to make a labor tv show on community access television. Go here to view it - hosted by the Indybay IMC: ( http://indybay.org/uploads/2006/10/27/seiu503-howtostart.mov)

Prior to the trip Wes Brain made the following comments about LaborTech 2006:
"In 2004 Steve Ryan and I went to SF for LaborTech 2004 and we were on a panel promoting our independent media center's. Ali was on our panel. He is a member of our media collective that made the documentary: The Miami Model. "The Miami Model" on google video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6070018713445115976&hl=en >
Our ftaa miami video collective has taken proceeds from dvd sales of the Miami Model and last week sent to Oaxaca 2-300GB Harddrives, a Video Camera and a stack of 100 dvds.
The conference kicks off with film screenings tomorrow evening and this one really caught my eye...
'The Taking Of The Media In Oaxaca (segment)- Women with the support of the Teachers Union Section 22 of Oaxaca occupied and ran the TV station and radio stations in this town. This documentary shows why they did this and how it was done.
Women and Technology: Investing In New Opportunities (segment) by Self Employed Women Association SEWA) in India. This work show how women workers have used video to organize and show their lives and struggle.'"
