>20th of January and wrapping up on the 25th of January 2007.
>greetings all and a happy new year from barcelona
>The world social forum starts in 2 weeks , thats 14 days, i had
>hoped that things would be a lot more organised by now, but they are
>not, this is partly my fault as things have been a lot more
>difficult than expacted here in barcelona, 3 evictions in a month
>and difficulties in a work space.
>anyway, we battle on.
>Indymedia kenya has just been set up and hopefully it will turn into
>a thriving active node that will help in bringing a truer state of
>justice and democracy to kenya. I just added a brief intro to the
>WSF project and indymedias role in it
>WSF, attempts to widen the discussion
>Ive been involved with the project in a support role with trying to
>set up local listening nodes, so far there has been some interest
>expressed in working with the project from physical spaces, radio
>stations, imc events.... in Nairobi/Kenya, Dublin/Ireland,
>Barcelona/Catalyuna/Spain, marseilles/France, Philadelphia/US....
>these are the ones i am aware of, perhaps there is more...
>what can be done by groups working outside Nairobi for duration of the WSF
>1 - terrestrial and web radio stations can tune their stations into
>the radio streams from Nairobi. hopefully there will be many streams
>coming out of Nairobi during the WSF.
>2 - physical spaces outside Nairobi can open for duration of WSF, or
>part of, with radio speakers playing the audio live from Nairobi,
>and video stream if it happens.
>these physical spaces can have information, exhibition, films etc
>about the social forum project... possibly also computers tuned into
>imc-kenya for the duration of the forum, in the hope that the
>imc-kenya site becomes an active resourse during the wsf and
>local forums or discussions can happen in these spaces about some of
>the issues raised within the WSF or about the nature of the WSF
>itself, where it is now, where its going etc......
>it is hoped that social centres with computers connected to the net
>will open for the above...
>3 - while the WSF is on, perhaps there is possibility of those
>outside Nairobi at home in their own spaces trying to experiment
>with the limits of how we can communicate as a global network while
>wsf is on. this might happen, who knows....
>regards to all

>:: Indymedia Africa working team introduction, from radio livre:
>Organizers in Kenya, throughout Africa and around the world will
>work together, both on-line and in face-to-face meetings, to build a
>temporary independent media center in Nairobi, Kenya, to provide
>communication during the January '07 World Social Forum. This
>"convergence-based" IMC will provide text-based, audio, and
>(potentially) video coverage of the World Social Forum, both on-line
>and through a local low-power radio station, enabling independent
>media coverage of the WSF during the forum itself as well as access
>through the world wide web to the WSF by an international audience.
>The IMC will also be a hub for trainings and hands-on media-making
>workshops throughout the World Social Forum. Thousands of organizers
>will be coming to the World Social Forum from around the globe,
>especially from Africa; this IMC will empower activists (especially
>those in Africa) to create effective independent media institutions
>in their countries. Also, all the equipment purchased for this IMC
>will remain in Kenya for use by the Kenya IMC and other Kenyan
>independent media projects. The IMC plans to be open from January 13
>to January 25. The WSF itself takes place from January 20-25.
>World Social Forum 2007
>Convergence Independent Media Center and radio project
>:: Radio nodes update
>This is a proposal to Syndicate content from different nodes in
>social centers and other alternative media outlets during the WSF
>and combine it with content from Nairobi also. A kind of global
>collaboration on both virtual and physical.
>basically getting more social centres and other spaces to open up
>during WSF as local nodes around planet to go to to firstly listen
>to stuff live from kenya, but also maybe where they could have 2 way
