Please Note
If you have a question or request for our editorial group please use the contact form instead of publishing a story, as this will bring the matter to the attention of the editorial group in a much speedier fashion!

Editorial Policy
Indymedia is a democratic newswire. We want to see and hear the real stories, news, and opinions from around the country. While we struggle to maintain the newswire as a completely open forum we do monitor it and remove posts.For more information see our Editorial Guidelines page.

File Uploads

Publishing Form
Use this form to publish your news story.

Author Details
Please enter the author or producer of the piece you're posting - if you represent an organisation include its name.
Including contact details is optional but will mean our audience (including journalists) can contact you about your story, including for possible re-use in other places.
You can include a web address to link to related material. This will appear as a link at the bottom of your story. If you don't specify a URL prefix such as http:// or ftp:// or mailto: then http:// will be prepended automatically.
Story Relevance
Please select the region that the piece you're posting is most relevant to. Please do not select National or International just to give your post more importance, as all posts are given equal status on the newswire.
Please select the topic that the piece you're posting is most related to.
Please select the type of story that you're posting. If you can't find a suitable type then perhaps consider that your piece may not be appropriate for submission to the newswire.
If you select the "Event Notice" type, please specify the date of the event for the events calendar.
Please select the language of story that you're posting.
Story Content
Give your piece a title, and a subtitle if required.
Please DO NOT spell your title or subtitle completely in uppercase. It ruins the look of certain displays and will not make your story any more prominent!
If your piece is short then you only need fill in the Summary box - otherwise use the Summary box to present a clear outline of the Full Text.
max 1000 characters

If your story is long it is a good idea to write it in a text editor like Notepad first, then when it's finished, copy and paste it into the Full Text box.
Note: to include clickable links in your story enter the URLs (web addresses) in the form of or - they will be converted to links. All other HTML tags will be ignored.
