Recent accounts of Habermas's conception of the public sphere concern the interlocking of multiple networks and spaces. In a global context new interfaces between existing (counter) public spheres can lead to multiple counter-publics. This article explores this phenomenon through the examination of the communicative spaces that offer alternatives to Australia's mainstream public sphere from three different strands of Sydney's communicty media: diasporic media (Assyrian Radio SBS), Indigenous media (Koori Radio) and discursive sites that operate inbetween ehtnic and mainstream media (Forum for Australia's Islamic Relations)
