Get Down to Your Local Indy

Local Indymedia groups (IMCs) exist all over the UK. Some have existed longer than others and some are more active than others, but they all have one thing in common: they need your help. If you're interested in working on independent media on a local level, or if you have technical skills, why not become involved? Help organise film screenings, benefit events, or report on local issues, compile features and do admin work on the websites. There is a lot to be done!

Local IMC kollectives have regular meetings which are open to anyone interested. These include:
Bristol: Monday 19th Feb, 8pm at the Hillgrove Pub, Kingsdown, Bristol
Cambridge: Monday 19th Feb, 7:30pm at 3 Fletchers Terrace Cambridge (more on meetings)
Manchester: Wednesday 14th Feb, 7.30pm at Basement Social Centre, 24 Lever St, Manchester, M11DZ

In 1996, two years before the first Idependent Media Centre became a reality, the Zapatistas already called for "the creation of a network of independent media, a network of information. A network to resist the power of the lie that sells us this war that we call the Fourth World War. We need this network not only as a tool for our social movements, but for our lives: this is a project of life, of humanity, humanity which has a right to critical and truthful information" [full communiqué]

Local IMCs in the UK

A recent interesting development is the setting up of a new Indymedia collective in Wales. The collective had its first meeting on Saturday 3rd February. Ideas on the agenda included the setting up of bi-lingual website to cover news related to Wales. You can get in touch with local Indymedia groups through their email lists. They are all publicly archived. Some groups have their own Indymedia website on imc-uk or elsewhere, some are just developing. Click on "website" to check them out.



Global website also seeking new volunteers

It's not just the United Kollectives that you could become involved in - it's also the entire global Indymedia network. The global website is about to announce a call-out [multi-lingual] for new volunteers to become involved in preparing features for this dynamic, multi-lingual site. Want to be involved?? It's easy, all you have to do is sign up to the global indymedia working group, www-features (or www-editoriales in Spanish/Portuguese), and join in! In fact, it's even easier than that at the most basic level: just write your feature, and propose it to the list [How to post and propose a feature].
