Tired of corporate coverage?

Why not be the media?

The Independant Media Center (IMC) offers an alternative to corporate
media. It effectively bypasses it by allowing individuals posting their
own article. There are about 50 IMCs all arround the world, giving a
voice to those who do not have one and creating an alternative source of
information and communication network. Anyone can also comment the
articles that have been posted.

The participants of IMC Ottawa have been covering events for a year now
and posting on IMC Ontario ( http://ontario.indymedia.org ). We
ultimatley want to have a seperate web site for Ottawa.

Help is needed for or will be needed for:
- Journalists / Activists-journalists
- Technical help (computer, audio equipement, photo dev.)
- Networking with other groups
- Communicating with other IMCs
- Photographs
- Donating equipement
- Newsroom facilitator (aka designated supervisor)
- Translation
- Just about anything you can think of

"For 150 years, a few rich nations have decided how Africa should be
"helped". The G8's new "Marshall plan" for the continent is no more
enlightened than the schemes some of its members were devising in 1860.
The problem is not the decisions the G8 makes. The problem is that it's
the G8 making the decisions."
- George Monbiot
