OK  WMass IMCistas and supporters, we have the Amherst Room upstairs in the 
Jones Library on Amity Street in Amherst on Saturday, June 4, Noon to 1pm 
for our next, hopefully not final meeting. As you may know, the site was 
hacked (along w/all the other Dada sites) and has been down for weeks. No 
news on its status. Why, i do not know.  It would help a lot if Jeremy could 
give us an update.
As you may also be aware, we've been limping along with two or three people 
for months and months. It's not pretty. However, Carlos has chimed in (see 
below) w/a plea that we keep on keepin' on. I'm game if YOU are!

necessary in the political world as storms in the physical world."

>>Although I have been following what has happened at WMass
>>IMC from afar and contributed to its demise by my lack of
>>participation I would like to see it continue and so I am
>>recommiting myself to add my energy to the project.  I am
>>attending the National Conference on Media Reform in St.
>>Louis Missouri where one of the topics everybody talks about
>>is the importance of alternative independent media.  Being
>>here  put me back in touch with the big picture that  the
>>WMASS IMC is part of the big picture of media democracy is
>>that it will matter if it goes down. It will be a litle defeat for
>>the movement.  I have been speaking with other IMC
>>activists that have strong locals and I found myself longing
>>for that in Western Mass.  One the things I am realizing is
>>that many of the strong locals have  a physical home where
>>they meet.
>>I know this may sound funny coming from me who has been
>>absent but no shame at this point,  but I appeal to all those
>>people like me who have been watching from the sidelines
>>and those who have been sustaining the flame was these
>>months that we hold a rescue meeting for our local and set up
>>a plan to make it work.  I helped start Worcester IMC, they
>>don't have any local tech suppport .  They are being
>>supported by Gaba from Uruguay.  We could do the same to
>>lighten Jeremy's load.  There is a lot of talent and possibility
>>in the valey.  I really think this is a growing crisis and that we
>>can come out of this stronger with a plan and a commitment
>>to raise funds, to locate a physical  space, to get tech
>>support, do stories  and increase membership.  After
>>speaking with other IMCistas I got  some ideas for economic
>>sustainibility that we could implement.
>>DO do you want to set a date for a meeting with an RSVP to
>>maximize those who could attend?
>>The IMC is really too important to just let it go.
