Activist (media) strategy is broken

This is the state of the #stopG8 twitter account as the main convergence center is raided by hundreds of police:

Using individual Facebook accounts - who sees the content they post is decided by the advertising driven algorithms of Facebook and everything they post is sent strait to the corporate and governmental agency’s they are fighting against. 

The website they have built is not only dysfunctional (it only allows corporate embeds of video all opensource or activists embeds are blocked - only google owned youtube works) it's a control freaks love affair and a re-creation of the Soviet Union.

UPDATE: the video embed whent up in the end https://network23.org/stopg8/media/video

Been looking at several of your posts to try to see where you are coming from when you say these things are broken. I agree they seem broken, but I think I probably mean different things by that. (No harm in that. )
I visited an open meeting prior to the anti-G8 to see the lie of the land. I decided, based on that admittedly brief, but not cursory, look at who was doing what in what manner, that I did not trust the structure, so to speak, enough to associate with them for anything other than this brief open meeting.

.....By which I don't mean to say I am incapable of trusting others. Nor that they were bad people. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say they did not inspire me with confidence that they had a plan and were capable of carrying that out. So, in terms of brokenness, activists' own projection of themselves and of their project, failed to enlist the support of someone predisposed to support. This is brokenness prior to the brokenness you refer to, no?
