Almost all discussions of problems which grassroot anticapitalist movement shave eventually reach a point where the media turn out to be an insurmountable obstacle. Almost total absence of left-wing media prevents many initiatives and and successes of bottom-up movements from reaching the public opinion. The only tools left are social media in which the reach of the content depends not on the importance and scale of the issues raised, but on their own profitability algorithms for this content.
