European Indymedia Servers Seized by US

by A-Infos, forwarded by Adrien Rain Burke Saturday, Oct. 09, 2004 at 2:45 PM

US authorities are shutting down IMCs around the world.

US authorities issued a federal order to Rackspace's office in the US

ordering them to provide Indymedia's hardware located in London to the

requesting agency. Rackspace is one of Indymedia's web hosting providers

with offices in the US and London. Rackspace complied and turned over

Indymedia's server in the UK. This affects some 20+ Indymedia sites


Since the subpoena was issued to Rackspace and not to Indymedia, the reasons

for this action are still unknown to Indymedia. Talking to Indymedia

volunteers, Rackspace stated that "they cannot provide Indymedia with any

information regarding the order."

It is unclear to Indymedia how and why a server that is outside the US

jurisdiction can be seized by US authorities.

At the same time a second server was taken down at Rackspace which provided

streaming radio to several radio stations, BLAG (linux distro), and a

handful of miscellanous things.

The last few months have seen numerous attacks on independent media by the

US Federal Government. In August the Secret Service used a subpoena in an

attempt to disrupt the NYC IMC before the RNC by trying to get IP logs from

an ISP in the US and the Netherlands, last month the FCC shut down community

radio stations around the US, and some weeks ago the FBI request that

Indymedia takes down a post on the Nantes IMC that had a photo of some

undercover Swiss police. Now the US authorities are shutting down IMCs

around the world.

The list of affected local media collectives includes Ambazonia, Uruguay,

Andorra, Poland, Western Massachusetts, Nice, Nantes, Lilles, Marseille (all

France), Euskal Herria (Basque Country), Liege, East and West Vlaanderen,

Antwerpen (all Belgium), Belgrade, Portugal, Prague, Galiza, Italy, Brazil,

UK, part of the Germany site, and the global Indymedia Radio site.

Micah Anderson of the global imc-tech collective said, "We suspect it has to

do with an FBI request that we take down a post on the Nantes IMC that had a

photo of some undercover Swiss police. They claimed there was threats and

personal information, but there was nothing of the sort. The undercover

police that were photographed on the page were photographing protesters.

Rackspace is a US company, but have colocation in the UK where these servers

are (err, were) located. So this is about Swiss police, on a French site, on

a server in England, taken away by American federal police."

However, according to information from IMC Nantes the pictures in question

were already removed a week ago.
