New Editorial Guidelines of the IMC UK Collective vs 0.9 The Independent Media Centre (Indymedia/IMC) UK is a network of media activists and organizations offering grassroots, non-corporate, non- commercial coverage of important social and political issues.

The Indymedia web site is an open newswire.

The Indymedia web site is a 'newswire' not a noticeboard for political parties, or any other hierarchically structured organization. While we struggle to maintain it as a completely open forum we do monitor and on occasions remove posts.

1) The IMC UK Collective acts as editor on this site. Any hidden postings are visible to everyone in our Editorial Admin page. Just click to read them.

2) Reasons for removal from the newswire:

  • Discrimination: posts intending to oppress - using language, imagery, or other forms of communication which promote racism, fascism, xenophobia, sexism, or any other form of discrimination.
  • Advertising: posts which are personally or product promotional in nature.
  • Infactual: posts which are obviously infactual or misleading.
  • Repeated posting: if contribution is reposted or text that was originally a comment was posted as a report

3) Add Comments - at the end of each posting on the Newswire a facility is provided for anyone who wishes to respond to the posting. Just click on the "Add Comments" link.

4) Announcements - please use the Calendar link on top of the Newswire.
