Austin Indymedia came, went, and is now coming back again! Folks are currently organizing a new collective and beginning to design a website. Here we have our new mission statement:
Austin Indymedia is a grassroots media collective committed to providing
an outlet for the circulation of voices and messages that are
systematically marginalized by mainstream media. Austin Indymedia refuses
to hide behind a false sense of objectivity and promotes media-making as a
tool for social, economic, and environmental justice. We seek to provide
alternatives to for-profit media not only in our coverage, but also within
our collective by implementing consensus decision making, non-hierarchical
and non-specialized work methods. Austin Indymedia allows for open
publishing, encourages community collaboration, and helps open access to
the tools necessary to engage in grassroots media-making. These processes
ensure that the means are consistent with the end--a world based on
community, cooperation and sustainability.
