It has not been completely removed, it is hidden from the newswire and
is only available from the view all posts page http://www. indymedia.
org. uk/en/viewallposts.html the article is http://www. indymedia. org.
It was hidden as non-news by another admin. Scanning myself the article
it does not seem to be a report, but commentary and opinion.

Indymedia UK is not a free speech website and has never suggested it is.
Our subjectivity is clear:
"Inherent in the mainstream corporate media is a strong bias towards
Capitalism's power structures, and it is an important tool in
propagating these structures around the globe. While the mainstream
media conceal their manifold biases and alignments, we clearly state our
position. Indymedia UK does not attempt to take an objective and
impartial standpoint: Indymedia UK clearly states its subjectivity."
Our emphasis is grassroots, non-corporate reporting by those involved
