Based in Vancouver, Adbusters is a funny and irreverent organization which publishes a magazine four times/year in a language and style which appeals to youth culture. Includes sections on "Media Carta", "Culture Jam 1999" and "Is Economic 'Progress' Killing The Planet?". Adbusters is funded by The Media Foundation, a "Media Activist Organization". In their own words, Adbusters magazine "offers intelligent, incisive articles, activist commentary from around the world, exposes of corporate media manipulation, our annual social marketing campaigns like Buy Nothing Day (November 26, 1999) and TV Turnoff Week, and our famed spoof ads. Ultimately, though, Adbusters is an ecological magazine, dedicated to examining the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environment. We want a world in which the economy and ecology resonate in balance. We try to coax people from spectator to participant in this quest. We want folks to get mad about corporate disinformation, injustices in the global economy, and any industry that pollutes our physical or mental commons".
