Hi everyone

Nothing happening on here for a while.

I've been defeated by the challenges of producing a bilingual website 
interface when I don't speak Welsh and we don't have enough people who 
can translate - as far as I can see.  Correct me if I'm wrong and if 
there's anyone out there who can translate our static pages and who 
would like to be involved in an indymedia collective moderating posts in 
Welsh to check they meed editorial guidelines.

Hywel did get the first bit of the work done, but I was reluctant to ask 
techies in united kollektives to put in the time to help us do all the 
technical things that need doing if we don't have people to do the rest 
of the translation work - and we don't seem to have got very far with 
that at all.

So the way I see it is that either we have to recruit more Welsh 
speaking activists who want to get actively involved with an indymedia 
collective in Wales, or we have to start with an English language only 
page for now (not good), or resign ourselves to not having a Wales page 
on indymedia at all (which isn't good either!)

There's a united kollektives network meeting in London 17-18 May, which 
I should be able to get to. I'd  be happy to go along to if there are 
other Wales-based activists interested in getting this started again.  
Let me know what you think.  More info about registering for the London 
meeting below.



Hello all

With only 2 weeks 'til the London network meeting we need to know who 
is coming - Thanks for those that have registered so far (even if 
provisional) at the moment there are 3 people coming from outside 
London - with those kind of numbers we won't need to book large 
spaces - so there is a deadline for registration - or comments - 
before this Wednesday 30th 5pm - So we can decide at our meeting what 
to do.
See below for how to register and the agenda

cheers tony
