I hope I'm posting to the right list...
In the past a number of sites have gone up as whole
countries as opposed to the longer indymedia tradition
of city sites.
It seems to be causing some problems in Belgium now
and could potentially cause many more problems in
other future Indymedia countries that are even more
What if we structured the new IMC process so that *as
a default* city sites come first, country sites come
when city sites combine efforts? We can always make
exceptions to this case by case, but maybe it might
help avoid future turmoil?
Currently I don't think we have a default-
A good piece of info for this would be: What was the
first country site, and why was it a country and not a
city? -( if someone knows..)
In another sense, city borders are more natural than
the boundaries between countries, and some nations,
like the kurds for instance, are in several countires
without their own sovereign nation. ( so it would
make sense to have city sites, and then if they
decided to they could make IMC kurdistan together- but
then that's kinda odd to mix nationalism with IMC-
which brings us back to the beginning- why borders? )
