Thanks for your feature proposal - as mini-mouse wrote to you
earlier, it is not really a feature - more a call out - which isn't
really what our front page should be used for.
Once the action has happened - it would be good to write up a report,
photos, background info etc - send them to the newswire - then write
a round-up feature that links to them. It is definately a campaign we
want to cover and your features would be vital, so please don't be
put off by this...
In the mean time it is possible to put a link in the Upcoming events
section of the UK and London sites (linking to this article in the
newswire) so people know it is coming and come out in support.
If you have any questions please write back to this features list, or
the London indymedia list <imc-london at lists.indymedia.org>
