NB: The Indymedia reporting numbers are for informing Indymedia about
what is happening around the Climate Camp to enable an accurate
picture of the events to be reported on the Indymedia websites, they
are not an information line to give out information.
The reporting numbers are public and may be monitored by the police.
If you are using Twitter, a record of your message will be published
on your Twitter page.
If you are taking pictures or video, respect other people's desire not
to be filmed. Pictures and video can often help people prove their
innocence when arrested, however they can also incriminate people, so
think about what you shoot and be aware the police sometimes try to
confiscate recording equipment, media and film. For updates on police
powers regarding photography under sections 43 and 44 of the Terrorism
Act 2000 see http://photographernotaterrorist.org
Don't Hate The Media - Become The Media!
