Any proposal for changes on the imc-uk site or working practices should be submitted and discussed here.
This is a hub for all the imc groups in the UK. Plans for meetings, first ideas for projects etc.
If you want to get involved but this page isn't helping much in making up your mind, check out Getting Involved at global Indymedia.
If you register to the page, a trust-worthy person (probably one of us:-) will contact you privately and try to give a better idea.
The world's imc-mailing lists
The global Indymedia project operates through a system of email lists, dedicated to geographical areas or specific projects. See the world's complete list of imc mailing lists.
If you don't want your mail being read online, mail to imc-uk-contact at lists.indymedia.org.
Your mail then goes to a privately archived list, only volunteers of imc-uk can read it online.
Email, if not encrypted, should be thought of as a postcard. Even postings to private lists that are not publicly archived can be read by the authorities. For internet privacy tools check epic.org .
Postings to publicly archived lists can be found through a search engine (like google) very easily. Try this Google search to see how Google indexes list archives.
To prevent spam, email adresses on this page are given in the format "name at domain.org", not in the usual "email@example.com" format. Just fill in the '@'.
