Hi, someone warned me about that discussion, you must to know that is NOT a rumor but a sad reality...
A lot of us are fed up about eternal lies of some members of indy.be, that's why we're writing a text to describe the scary situation in Belgium. We hope this text will help people to understand. If you want already an idea, www.indymedia.be respects only 1 point of the POU... (the 9)
Thanks very much Nick, we see a bit the light in the long and tiring tunnel...

Via via via .... we received this mail by Nick Cooper wich is clearly
part of a campaing against belgium.indymedia.org.
I do not think this is a constructive way to resolve the problems in the
Belgium IMC's. Not to speak about all the grotesk rumours and

different belgian mailing lists, I ame sure you will get answers to your

Mail by Nick Cooper:
There have been alot of proposal on imc-process about problems at the
Belgium IMC. Apparently, the collective has been taken over by a
group which are ppaid by the Belgium Workers Party and 22 members have
kicked out. The group in charge has even blocked proposals to re-assign
belgium link on the cities list to a syndication site which includes
to their site as well as others in Belgium. I wanted to test out how
repressive the collective is and got a quick idea - an critique of
revolutionary communism I published was hidden (to read it you have to
hi-light it because it has been blacked out, but you will see it is not
exactly a personal attack).
Anyway, I think we should consense to support the Belgium-IMC people in
exile who wish to continue to do IMC work - here is one of their
The spokesperson of the communist group (Han) blocks this proposal
and responds that the conflict should be solved on a local level
but thiis has been going on for three years now, and I think it is time
us to support the exiled members in having access to the belgium
address they created.
