I like this feature, the only thing I am wondering about is the: 'Friday 
evening is a round-table discussion on Venezuela's "media-coup" with 
Tariq Ali and speakers from indymedia and the NUJ.'

Can someone let us know who form Indymedia is speaking?  In the past we 
have had a policy that no individual speaks for the imc-uk network as a 
whole, I think it is good that someone wants to speak on this panel (we 
need to get our ideas out there) but am just wondering how that's going 
to be presented. 

Do you have admin access to the site Charley?  If you don't, please let 
us know and someone can put the article up for you once 24 hours have 
passed and there has been no block on it.
