Radical Shout-Outs

Radical Citizen Media was mentioned in two Edmonton-based blogs this week.

Prominent Edmonton blogger Mack Male discussed the site as part of his Media Monday Edmonton update for this week.

Meanwhile, Nadine Riopel states that she used Radical Citizen Media as part of her research (as well as a photo from Saturday’s Anti-Racism Rally) for her blog post To March or Not to March?

It is very exciting to see this site acknowledged as a credible and important archive of citizen engagement in Edmonton.

New Categories

There are a number of new categories for photos to reflect the diversity of the kinds of citizen engagement that goes on here in Edmonton. They include:

  • Arab Spring – Rallies supporting the uprisings in Libya, Bahrain, Egypt, and Syria.
  • Local Issues – Issues specific to Edmonton, as opposed to global movements.
  • May Day Marches – Formerly only linked under Labour, the annual May Day March now has a category of its own (like the Pride Parades).
  • Occupy Edmonton – A movement spawning many actions – enough to have its own category.
  • Organizations – With subcategories for such organizations as the Parkland Institute, Council of Canadians, Edmonton Anarchist Book Fair, Edmonton Small Press Association, and others.
  • Political Actions – Rallies and events that deal specifically with politics, like trying to influence public policy on a particular matter or broader issues like the (defeated) SPP and recent Robocall scandal.
  • Women’s Issues – Events dealing with human rights issues pertaining to women.
  • Videos

    Videos are now conveniently linked from the main menu. You can search for video playlists by event or by subject matter.
