Table of content :
in both personal meetings and mailing lists, people have pointed out that there is very few communication among the Indymedias that exist in the area of Balkans and share common borders. There have been several efforts to have some communication between us, but you may agree that we still need to do things about it.
So, we would propose to try to establish a communication network between the Indymedias in the Balkans area, possibly including Athens, Belgrade, Bulgaria, Istanbul, Romania etc.
Some ideas also are:
(a) to have a meeting in the IRC, soon. We can contact via e-mail and set up an agenda for the meeting in the docs wiki. There is always the prospect for a physical meeting in the future.
(b) to improve communication, by agreeing the IRC meeting to take place regularly, and also by creating possibly a mailing list, a chat channel and having a list with the current issues in the docs.wiki .
(c) to improve the information flow between the nearby indymedias. This means to keep in contact for important news and events taking place, so that we all know about them and publish them, by doing the essential translations.
(d) We can also check several useful electronic tools, such as a balkan internal site with news aggregators and automatic translation.
Proposed date: ??? July 2007
