Indy is being attacked. And we can get almost no pages from here in Switzerland.
Since weeks, Indymedia in Europe is under attack. Switzerland is down, Italy has
been attacked by the riot-police, germany and austria are threatened.
For today, almost all indy-pages are not available anymore from here in
Switzerland. Norway, Israel, Russia and adelaide were reachable for us.
Does anybody know what's going on?Make a quick comment on this article.
same sort of thing going on in the USA

I have tried to contact www.indymedia.org (centeral site)
and all USA sites.
Only 14 of the 30 USA sites will respond at all,
and about 7 of those 14, are having trouble displaying the home page.
I was able to contact those 7 by clicking on the "stop loading this page"
icon at the top of the browser, and only then did the home page plot.
I was then able to usualy read the screen and click on something,
then the site worked ok.
So....of the 30 USA indymedia sites:
16 do not respond
7 respond but do not plot untill "stop loading this page" is clicked
7 respond and seem to work ok
I sould also note my email accounts are not working correctly over the past few
passiert ab und zu: ein paar server kacken ab, ist ziemlich überladen die sache. angst brauchste erst zu haben, wenn morgen abend immer noch nix erreichbar ist.
7 sites load quickly.
7 sites never load, but can if stoped from loading.
16 sites never respond at all.
thats just in the USA.
I have tried a few in Europe, and the same.
write a mail to indy-tech-list. there where several times ago the same like tonight.
You said to send mail to
"indy-tech-list" but thats not a full email address.
To get the full email address
I have ti visit http://www.indymedia.org
or click on "tech" at la.indymedia.org
to send email to tech.indymedia.org
ALL OF THOSE SITES DO NOT WORK!!!!
so I cant send email to your sugested
Tech is obviously aware of the problems with some sites.
What have you observed?
Seattle has been unavailable since before 5 PM.
there you can find all mailinglists. you can read the archives ao wrote to email@example.com
Vancouver and Victoria IMC's down for over 12 hrs.
Too bad, because Victoria (B.C. Capital) saw over 30,000 strong protest against gov't. neoliberal agenda, today.
Thousands of others in small towns across the province.
As usual, downplayed by mainstream media.
Great cross-section of communities: labour, environmental and community associations.
Many waiting to file full reports if local IMC's come back on line.
Nevertheless, organizing will continue at the community level to defeat neoliberalism and its war against the people.
All Indymedia sites seem to be up and running fine now. Apparently, they were down due to "a local computer glitch." http://seattle.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=11703&group=webcast
