hi magduv, indymedia ukraine,
Would someone from Ukraine speaking a language that Georgians are
comfortable with (maybe English and/or Russian?) want to talk to ucha
from Georgia? He's asked for general info, and i think one person gave
him a short reply, but we don't even know if he's necessarily interested
in indymedia style organising, or just inspiration for organising some
sort of independent media centre in Georgia.
In any case, he's from War Resisters International and a local human
rights organisation - generally i've heard good things about WRI:
i don't have time to be the new-imc helper here - and i thought since
Ukraine is reasonably close, this would also be a good way for you to
make regional contacts... There's also the common aspect of "color
revolutions" and a mess between russian-neoliberal-fascists and
Western-neoliberal-fascists struggling for power while neoliberal
activists "lose their illusions about the post-revolution period" and
anarchist/libertarian/feminist/human-rights activists continue organising
in a much more horizontal fashion and accept that this is a long term
social construction activity... Anyway...
i'm boud, a volunteer in the indymedia poland collective and the
new-imc working group. You can see all of our discussion and
decision-making on our mailing list archives if you want to know more
about me: http://lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/imc-pl
i looked at your record in google, and it's clear that you are a long-term
human rights and antiwar activist in Georgia, so you're certainly
someone welcome to be in contact with the indymedia network :).
i'm hoping that people from indymedia ukraine might be interested in
communicating with you - you're fairly close to each other and if you
are interested in you and colleagues creating an open, non-hierarchical
"indymedia" type independent media collective, then i'm sure they would
Also, you can speak with them in Russian, which might be easier for both
of you than in English.
You can see their mailing list here
and email them at ukraine at lists.indymedia.org
You can find lots of information about how indymedia organises on
If you are interested in starting a collective as part of the indymedia
network, then it would be best if you read:
Of course, you are welcome to use our organising methods even if you
do not want to become part of the network. You are also welcome to use
the indymedia software packages:
They are all free software packages (politically free, but also money-free)
and probably more effective than anything that you could buy with money.
