I've been talking to a couple of people who are involved in the media
provision for the Great Climate Swoop at Ratcliffe-on-Soar on Saturday
17th. My understanding is that Notts Indymedia (closest IMC to the
action) are going to be short of people to do despatch, because some
people will be celebrating Veggies' 25th anniversary (hooray!) and some
will be taking part in the action.
To support the action and to show solidarity with Notts IMC, Northern
Indymedia would like to take on running a despatch service on the day,
and we have a team of volunteers ready to do so.
My intention is to announce this as a service to the Climate Swoopers on
Tuesday evening. I understand that there is also a plan to use some
mainstream social networking tools to get news out on the day but that
there are technical (as well as political) problems with this, so
another way is needed.
We had been planning to run a 'be the media' centre in the area on the
day, but there have been logistical problems with that, and it seems
that a despatch service will be more useful given the decentralised
nature of the action.
