Calling all Picture Takers!! Calling all Picture Takers!!

Open Letter to Photographers

Main stream media outlets can’t be counted on to provide meaningful coverage of events. The Indymedia site, as you know can and does. Acting as a powerful clearinghouse of information, Activist around the world are able to witness and participate in the full spectrum of progressive events.

The Indymedia web site has been a great vehicle for expressing my passions for social justice and photography. What I’d like to propose is this. Anyone interested in participating in an e-mail user group designed to exchange event information and insure IMC coverage is encouraged to contact Jim (

As a side note the “photo exchange group” idea came up at the IMC meeting a couple of weeks ago and I sat on it until last Saturday when something happened and that something is this:


Tuesday August 27th. 10 am – 1 pm

Downtown LA

For more information call 310-645-9249 or 323-935-0114 or E-mail Rainbow Sisters Project at

One of the organizers asked me to photograph the event and I can’t. It sure would have been nice to e-mail the group to find somebody that could.

Your thoughts are welcomed,
