introductory_statement:
During these revolutionary times media is used by the institutions of the status quo as a strong weapon to subvert and misinform the public opinion. The need for an independent media center is now crucial taking into account the long history of censorship, control of information flow, and state propaganda.

We view our struggle as part of a wider and international strife for freedom and liberty and Indymedia is a good tool for coordinating and exchanging information between activist groups both locally and internationally in a non-hierarchal and autonomous manner.

resources:
At this point we are still overloaded with work starting the new page and dealing with the remnants of the dictatorship, so we won´t be able to contribute. We hope to pitch in in the near future.

Also at this point we count on your support and solidarity.

outreach:
Sending emails to various activist lists and social network portals
Hanging posters in popular hang-out for progressive groups
Putting the call for the first meeting on some blogs.

identity_makeup:
Our group is very diverse within the progressive community in relation to gender-, sexual, spiritual-, and/or cultural identity. And it is the most diverse group we could find that approves to the Principles of Unity and the Indymedia framework.

steps_represent_diversity:
Our group is open and welcome all those who approve to the Principles of Unity, Mission Statement, and the framework of the Indymedia Network and Indymedia Cairo.

steps_involve_new_workfields:
We are planning a Drupal workshop, a video-editing workshop, and a writing workshop in the near future.

We will also collaborate with other groups on workshops and teach-ins.

We are planning to have skill-sharing as an integral and important tool in our work.
