[January 30, 2013] Social media, social movement: #IdleNoMore changes the conversation in Canada
|January 30, 2013||Posted by Elijah under meetup|
About the event:
A panel presentation and public discussion on the impact of social media in spreading Idle No More and in impacting the media discourse around Indigenous issues in Canada. The creative use of social media made it impossible for the mainstream media to ignore #IdleNoMore, and continues to shape how this unprecedented debate is taking place throughout society. Join us for an evening of talking and tweeting about #IdleNoMore.
