For the sixth year in a row there will be a bomspotting action in 
Belgium, for the las three years that action involved over 5000 peace 
activists and its attracting more and more activists from abroad (its 
allready a highlight on the activist agenda for nothern French and Dutch 

This year it will be a truely European event, since participation in 
this event is now also organised from the UK, Germany, Sweden and Finland.

Last year there was a cooperation in coverage between all Belgian imc's, 
imc Lille and imc Nl which worked very well (a few hickups concerning 
cooperation vs competition set aside)

This year the event will be even bigger:

Thousands of Civilian inspectors will go and inspect three different 
sites: the airbase at Kleine Brogel (near the dutch and german border), 
the NATO hadquarters in Brussels and the SHAPE (military nato 
headquarters) in Mons (near the french border)

Bomspotting will organise a radio stream in coopertion with a Brussels 
free radio station
http://www.bomspotting.be/en/radio_en.php which can be a usefull tool 
for newsgathering.

Maybe it can be relayed to other radio stations abroad.

I'm hoping maybe this year we can organise an even bigger cooperaiton 
between all imc's of the counrties organising participation to this event.

Maybe we can check out the possibilities for cooperating in the coverage 
of this event next Wednesday at 19.00h GMT in #bomspottingxl on the irc.
I've created the channel so it can allready be used for informal exchange .
