Dear Mr Gregg,
As you can see in the minutes below,
the DIMC consists of 9 members, none of whom are
called Robert, Fiona, Gary or Viki.
Darwin IndyMedia Collective Minutes
8th February 2006 - 2.30pm - One Mile Dam Aboriginal
Present - Mindy, David, Mick, Noodle, Jim, Vikki
Apologies - Justin, Therese, Karen
David Timber welcomed us all to Aboriginal land, One
Mile Dam community.
Sang Happy Birthday to David, Jim accompanied us on
New members (after intros and discussion) - accepted
unanimously. Noodle, Jim, Vikki - Karen had a previous
event to attend.
It was decided to let David explain the past events
that led to the DIMC losing its indymedia url.
Questions were asked to clarify events. The expelled
people are known to the new members.
A motion on the legitimacy of the DIMC's decisions to
expel Inder-Smith, Meyerhoff, Fiona and Viki, was
unanimous in supporting the expulsions.
A motion that other collectives respect the DIMC's
automony and return the DIMC's darwin.indymedia.org/
url was also supported unanimously.
We agreed we needed more local stories and had some
discussion on the growing harassment of Aboriginal
people in Darwin, (beatings, missiles from cars,
etc...) the loss of the Community patrols and a host
of other local issues.
Meeting closed - 4-00pm
So, our URL needs to be returned, leave us to do our
own work and manage our own affairs.There are many
people here struggling to do good work and you arent
It's a big enough insult to take our address from us
but an even bigger insult to those who work tirelessly
for the DIMC.
We prefer Autonomy to Totalitarianism .
Noodle aka Goonbags.
