Dear IMC Sheffield
We are writing as a collective in reference to the recent application by your collective to join the global imc community.
We think this is great, and as neighbours to Sheffield we would like to offer you our full support both now and in the future. There are lots of exciting ways we can work together and build a strong presence for Indymedia in our region.
We do however wish to ask that something is taken into consideration with your application which we feel stands in the way of a harmonious working relationship, and that is material written within the imc Sheffield area of the docs.indymedia.org wiki here:
We have long found this material to be unnecessary and without a positive purpose, and have requested on multiple occasions for it to be removed:
We have also been joined in this request by most of the active IMC collectives here in the UK:
We therefore would like to ask once again that a gesture of solidarity is made in the spirit of the principles of unity, and that these documents are removed in their entirety to allow a normal working relationship to exist between our collectives.
To be clear, we are not intending to block this application, this request is made in the spirit of friendship and unity. We are taking the irregular step of cc'ing this request to the new imc list so that people are aware of unresolved issues relevant to the application, but we do not intend to follow this up on a global list.
In peace and solidarity
imc northern england
