IMC Network Proposals
IMC Network Proposals from Discussions at Press Freedom Conference (San Francisco, April 27-29, 2001)
[Note: the original of this document is located at www.subrosa.org/imc/sf-proposals.html
On April 27-29, many people from IMCs around the US and the world gathered
in San Francisco to discuss the future of the IMC network and to attempt
to frame proposals for the network as a whole to guide its future
decisionmaking in areas of common concern. This was necessitated by the
urgent need to address a variety of issues that had been until that time
deferred, such as how to facilitate the addition of new IMCs to the network.
These are urls for the texts of various proposals, with revisions made based
on input from people at the San Francisco conference, as
submitted to various lists whose archives are located at lists.indymedia.org.
Unfortunately, there is no one place that has a comprehensive listing of
these proposals. And this is especially problematic, as we want to get
feedback from everyone who might take an interest in guiding the future
development of the IMC network. Accordingly, as an effort to rectify this
situation, I'm taking the liberty of gathering some of these revised
proposals here. Please send mail to email@example.com if I've missed
any documents that should be listed here.
