The word Belgium covers the entire country which includes the other
Openness and cooperation between activists and thinking of everyone are
part of the spirit of indymedia and the principles of unity.
It makes clear and obvious sense that Belgium be the name for a
syndication site that is syndicating all local collectives in Belgium.
It also makes clear sense that if there are various local collectives
which do not have good relations, that one of them should not control
the name that represents all.
Frankly I do not respect the position to hold the name for your own
profit when it does not make sense collectively. Everywhere in the
world are people looking for their own interests and unwilling to give
up any power. The big corporation does not want to give up power, even
though that is the right thing to do to make a more democratic world.
On the big scale, or the small, this pattern is all round the world
Your words ignore a simple point - You are not the only collective in
Belgium. The fair path is to be open to give up the name to be shared
by all in Belgium.
