Yes, the internet is an excellent tool to learn,
gather information, maintain websites (as most
libraries have public internet access).

Not only is the internet an excellent tool it also
provides houseless/homeless people an excellent means
of communication for networking and passing on
information (as well as just keeping up to date as
what is happening) This list is an excellent example.

As far as media is concerned, the "big boys of Media"
(NBC,CNN,CBS,ABC,FOX) to just name a few, are powered
by major corporations and are slanted to their goals
of greed and more money.

That is why there is a growing network with the help
of the internet for Grass Roots Media.
We have seen this on the internet during the Philly
and LA Conventions. The way the police acted toward
protesters etc. was not offered in the corporate
media.
the site I refer to is http://www.indymedia.org and is
an excellent site for the true story of our modern
social justice struggle.

Peace and Solidarity;
Twig
