gearteeth_indyprocess_small.gif Welcome to the home of the Global Foswiki..
This is a web-based collaboration area for gathering collective knowledge
about what indymedia is, what its long-term and short-term goals are,
what has already happened and what is still to come.

This page is currently being reorganized, so don't worry if you cannot find something
Esta pagina esta siendo reorganizada; no tenga miedo por su materiales, estan en algun lado
La pagina sta venendo riorganizzata. Non temete non buttiamo via niente!
La page est en train d'etre reorganiz\xE9e. Ne vous preoccupez pas pour les materials que vous cherchez: ils sont toujour la!

In this page you should be able to find documents, materials and informations on network-wide working group and projects, as well as ideas and thoughts about what indymedia is about, drawn by the seven corners of the world (even if you think it's a sphere, our alchemist friends say otherwise).

Check the old version of these pages if you cannot find something that was dear to you smile
