hi all, sorry my silence, it's hot here, need the beach and beer!
This is a good start for this group, first step invite everybody but I
have to say that this list will be in english, too hard for non
english speakers. And please, tray to do not use "slang".
Second step can be make a "indymedia consulta", ask some question to
each local collectives.
Then we the indymedia history and this we can get a global view of
where we are stand up. no?
This can be great to start a real discussion about money issues and
tray to really understand the point of view of the different part of
Look for a unitarian point of view has non sence but I am very
estusiastic in have this place to make all questions I have and tray
to understand the others "cumpas".
For a indymedia where many indymedia fit??? ........
