Indymedia's Independence: From Activist Media to Free Software
Biella Coleman

The global, decentralized, grassroots network applies open source principles to reporting the news.

The Debut and Growth of The IMCs

Indymedia[2] is an aggregate of loosely affiliated activist media centers scattered across the planet. Its ascension captures the confounding contradictions of modern globalization. While forces backed by the FCC centripetally consolidate media outlets into a few corporate behemoths, a countervailing current pulls some news media in the opposite direction; Independent Media Centers ("IMCs") are a prime example. A confluence of opportune events led to the creation of the first IMC in Seattle. These colliding rivulets included the success of the Seattle 1999 anti-WTO protests, accessible web and Free Software technologies, a growing public reliance on online news, and the insight and labor of activists. Internet technologies have been the basis of Indymedia's operations and growth, and in many ways the political objectives of the IMCs are reflected by their use and production of Free Software. The deployment of Free Software web publishing systems has also become integral to the IMCs' mission. This fascinating interconnection between political values and the technological context of the IMC emerges from an analysis of Indymedia's development over its first five years.

Indymedia centers are run as local collectives that manage and coordinate a news website; some also operate an affiliated media resource center for local activists. These websites give any user of the site (regardless of whether or not they are part of the collective) the ability to create, publish, and access news reports of various forms – text, photo, video, and audio. The result is a free online source for unfiltered, direct journalism by activists, sometimes uploaded in the heat of the moment during a demonstration or political action. Although individual centers are autonomous, each is connected to the others through a global infrastructure of technology and workers who share a commitment to open publishing. Where traditional journalism holds editorial policies that are hidden in the hands of a few trained experts, Indymedia provides the alternative of "open publishing," a democratic process of creating news that is transparent and accessible to all, challenging the separation between consumers and producers of news.

A travers diverses images imprimées sur des t-shirts, la marque NG MRN (lisez Nègre Marron ou Neg Marron), nous fait entrevoir la résistance des peuples africains contre la colonisation, et la lutte des esclaves noirs déportés en Amérique pour l'élimination du système esclavagiste, épisodes souvent ignorés par les manuels d'histoire occidentaux. Une manière de nous dire que même dans les situations les plus désespérées, l'on ne doit jamais renoncer à la lutte!

Why the West have no compassion for human life

addu, 12.01.2005 11:30

Western kindness has a notorious history of rebounding and leaving a cruel taste amongst the receipts of aid. The failure of western governments to respond adequately to the catastrophe in Asia is not an act of God, but is the result of the capitalist ideology that makes materialism as opposed to humanitarianism the discerning factor in the disbursement of aid. These are the very same governments that never tire of preaching equality, human rights to the rest of the world, and setting up human rights commissions, but when given the opportunity to foster these ideals in some of the poorest countries of the world they are suddenly overcome with amnesia.

Iraq: The Devastation

The broken promises, broken infrastructure,

only grown worse since. The life Iraqis were living a year ago,
horrendous as it was, was but a prelude to what was to come under
the U.S. occupation.

I understand that protest groups want to believe that being "on the streets" still can work, but there has to be "real" media coverage to create any kind of sense. What actually happens is round-ups, undercover police pepper spraying and beating peaceful protesters, names being added to lists, and on, and on. There is no coverage and no benefit. However, there is a way.....

Fallujah: City of ghosts - Text and video

On November 8, the American army launched its biggest ever assault on the Iraqi city of Falluja, considered a stronghold for rebel fighters. The US said the raid had been a huge success, killing 1,200 insurgents. Most of the city's 300,000 residents, meanwhile, had fled for their lives. What really happened in the siege of Falluja? In a joint investigation for the Guardian and Channel 4 News, Iraqi doctor Ali Fadhil compiled the first independent reports from the devastated city, where he found scores of unburied corpses, rabid dogs - and a dangerously embittered population Watch an extract from the documentary

GREENSBORO (AP) — U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, a Greensboro Republican and close ally of President Bush, says the United States should consider pulling out of war-ravaged Iraq.

Coble is one of the first members of Congress to suggest a withdrawal publicly.

The 10-term congressman said in an interview with the News & Record of Greensboro that he's "fed up with picking up the newspaper and reading that we've lost another five or 10 of our young men and women in Iraq."

What has changed after Lula?

Plínio de Arruda Sampaio, 11.01.2005 12:51

To evaluate is to compare facts and values. In this evaluation of the first two years of Lula’s government, we chose as a term of comparison, the project for national construction. Using a synthetic and precise formula from Caio Prado Jr.: to what extent these two years of government have contributed to accelerate the transition between the “Brazil-Colony from yesterday into the Brazil-Nation of tomorrow”?
Three aspects of this transition will be examined: reduction of inequality; increase in autonomy; and political organization of the people. As for the reduction of social inequality, it should be mentioned that: for the two year period, the growth of the Gross National Product (GNP) was mediocre, and did not even manage to affect the GNP per capita. There was an improvement in 2004, but without a bigger impact – in terms of jobs (there was a small increase in comparison to the size of the work force), in terms of salaries ( in fact the average salary decreased in the two year period).

Hizb ut-Tahrir-Islamic Group Banned by Many Is Not on U.S. Terrorist List

KCom Journal (Dr. Imran Waheed) &amp; Washington Post (David B. Ottaway), 11.01.2005 07:56

The ideological desparation of the secular-capitalists is becoming ever more apparent
as they face the dilemma of losing more of their diminishing credibility in the world.
The secular-capitalists want to suppress the world-wide Islamic Party for Liberation
(to establish a world-wide Islamic Khalifate). But how can they, when the movement
has neither advocated the use of violence nor has been involved in violence for the
past 50+ years since it started.
The world-wide movement has gained media attention in Europe, Middle-East and
the Far-East. The movement essentially challenges (via intellectual dialogue) the
very foundation of the current secular institutions and establishments in light of
their world-wide failure to help reveal human suffering in all aspects of life.
The US administration is desparate and fearful especially of such a non-violent
movement which challenges the basis of secular-capitalist ideology. The US
administration is fearful that of giving any publicity to this movement in the US,
hence it may resort to other means of suppressing this purely intellectual challenge. The US will continue to install puppet regimes especially in the Middle-East
where the movement is gaining popularity, and instruct these puppet tyrant
regimes to use covert inhumane means to suppress the movement, as is currently
the case in Uzbekistan, where members of the movement are falsely accused of
being terrorists and then routinely subjected to incarceration and torture.
But the time approaches where USA and it's secular-capitalist puppets and allies
will openly use inhumane means to suppress this fast spreading movement.

sentencing relative to his co-defendants and good
behavior while in prison are more than ample reasons
for the Governor to grant clemency. Activists will
announce specific new efforts to push for clemency and
