IMC UK Approves Gagging Orders
09 abr 2005
Be Aware
It has come to light that in a draconian new move the editorial team at Indymedia UK have approved the use of gagging orders on a number of well known british activists by banning their IP numbers and email addresses from accessing the Indymedia UK site newswire and lists. This decision follows a series of incidents whereby posts to the newswire have been hidden from public view despite the fact that they in no way contradicted the editorial guidelines laid down by UK IMC's editorial team.

It's unclear at present whether the decision has been taken due to the editorial teams' bias in censoring any postings that are not in sympathy with their own personal opinions, or whether in fact outside agents are at work within IMC UK. It seems that the "alternative" news media furnished by the Indymedia UK collective is now subject to heavy censorship and that certain individuals are being singled out in a disgraceful and unforgivable witch hunt.

This work is in the public domain

A full explanation on how this decision was taken, by consensus, agains one single person who has been alarmingly disruptive, can be found easily by reading the open and public archives of the imc-uk-features and process email lists:

sorry to say it has spread further than just the one person, how about a tranparent investigation rather than a damage limitation excercise?

You can do a transparent investigation by reading the archives of imc-uk-process, and, if you want to go deeper and duller, imc-uk-features

every one is free to waste their time :-D
