[en] This surely belongs in communication, not in process? I will post
to communication now...
[es] Por cierto, esto debe estar en comunicación, y no en proceso,
¿verdad? Ahora me dirigo a comunicación...
[en] So far I stand corrected, I've looked into it, and I see a
borderline about an issue which is of curse subcontinentally
(subliminally) eurocentric (and technocentric) in the first place.
In any case, we here always understood that it would always be up to
local collectives to decide where on the 'indymedia map' they would like
to place themselves. Enough centralism, please. Let IMC-Armenia decide.
[es] Por el momento me quedo corregido. He investigado, y lo que veo es
una frontera, en relación con un asunto subcontinental (subliminal) de
entrada eurocentrico (y tecnocéntrico).
De todas formas, aquí siempre habiamos entendido que fuera asunto de los
colectivos locales tomar semejantes decisiones, como donde 'situarse' en
el 'mapa' de indymedia. Basta de centralismos, por favor. Que decide
IMC-Armenia y punto.
