IMC UK Editorial Guidelines

UK Indymedia (Independent Media Centre or IMC UK) is an open-publishing platform for news, issues, actions and analysis reporting on grassroots, non-corporate, non-commercial social justice, environmental and political issues. IMC UK is maintained by a collective of media activists. UK stands for United Kollektive.

IMC UK is dedicated to the open publishing ethos. This page explains how content on the site is generated and how you can contribute.

IMC UK volunteers moderate the site and collaborate in the production of features. Contents on the newswire are generated by anyone who wants to contribute (within these editorial guidelines).

We are likely to hide articles and comments that don't meet the open posting guidelines. Because of the 'real time' nature of the newswire, it is not possible to monitor its contents 24 hours a day. All articles, hidden and showing can be inspected via the View all posts page.

Concerns about editorial guidelines or queries about moderation are dealt with on the imc-uk-moderation list. These issues are not dealt with through the newswire, and newswire posts or comments on these topics will be hidden.
