At the August 18-20 event, Prometheus' tenth radio station barnraising, a cast of dozens, maybe hundreds, of community radio aficianados will come together to help build KPCN-LP Woodburn, OR. Regional volunteers from Portland's KBOO, Indymedia and Reclaim the Media will be joined by national volunteers throughout the US and international volunteers from Central and South America, and will converge in the Willamette Valley of Oregon to make a long-standing dream of PCUN come true! Since the organization formed in 1985, to protect the rights of Woodburn's immigrant treeplanters and farmworkers, it's been in the organization's vision to own and operate its own radio station to be used as an organizing tool for the group's numerous issues and campaigns.

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
