My question: how relevant is inter-imc editorial policy arguments
to kicking an IMC out of the network or removing their participation
Arguments like this about open publishing, newswire moderation,
editorial policy have gone on and on and on for 5 years now and
include opinions from one end of the spectrum (total moderation /
germany, for instance) to the other (totally open newswire and
no editorial content / sydney, for instance). This diversity in
editorial policy between local collectives is inherent to Indymedia.
There is much room for interpretation and I find it disturbing
that a particular editorial opinion is not only being passed off
as "what a real Indymedia does" but is being used as rationalization
for what's happening on imc-process by one of the imc-process
If, at one time, imc-belgium editorial felt it necessary to hide
anonymous posts about direct actions then ... ok. Maybe it was wrong,
maybe it was right but that happens within a local's autonomy and
let's get over it.
