What's with some IMC?

for freedom, brotherhood among peoples, peace, solidarity or for democracy.

True bastions of freedom are Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, UK, Ireland and the United States, with inevitable emphasis to New York, Washington, LA, Boston, and many others and to the Irish and British flawless performance , which supports a variety of wonderful sites.

Is big the brother that's watching us?

What's with some IMC?

Friends of independent media,

Trying to spread a positive image of Brazil and to inform other people about some remarkable initiatives of President Dilma Rousseff, I have published worldwide in 8 languages ​​so far, as you can see on voltaaomundopresidenta.blogspot.com

I came across, at these three "tours around the world," (Brazil: Structural changes on the way. Brazil: The perfect freedom of expression and the newly started Brazil: the Semi-Arid will be a thing of the past?) with a troubling scenario: there are few new IMC and various traditional ones are not working.

In Canada, along the "age" Bush, 8 or 9 (all), crashed; In Italy, along the "reign" Berlusconi, stopped 8 of 9 that existed. The only 2, of Russia, stopped recently. In Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Mexico, stopped the few or the only one there was. Several stopped in the USA. In previous presidency, stopped almost all French centers that are returning to work in smaller number for now and in a very tough regime of moderation, which makes it very difficult for foreigners. The Japan stopped when the tsunami and has not returned yet. Many stopped in Asia, Africa and Oceania and Australia the situation is likened to that of France.

True bastions of freedom are Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, UK, Ireland and the United States, with inevitable emphasis to New York, Washington, LA, Boston, and many others and to the Irish and British flawless performance , which supports a variety of wonderful sites.

The situation of shrinkage is not good for freedom, brotherhood among peoples, peace, solidarity or for democracy.

So I come to ask you all: What is happening? Lack of money? Political pressure? Lack of people? What?

I feel that we need to organize a rescue action to the IMCS that are stopped and that we can only do it in a great chain of mutual help, solidarity and exchange of ideas.
Anyone who wants to participate and help, post me a message at "comments" of voltaaomundopresidenta.blogspot.com with your email for return or e-mail me at emiliojoselemosdelima@gmail.com

Hugs,

Thank you,

Emilio José Lemos de Lima.

some reasons:

lack of funding, lack of people submitting decent articles, rising (IMHO misguided) use of corporate spying sites such as farcebook for activists because of their ease of use and "chic" factor.
Lack of tech resources to keep the sites looking "cool" and up to date. (sadly this is a factor yes. Today's culture is all about style over substance.). Also, relentless sabotage in the comments sections by vested interests. Open publishing is very vulnerable to this kind of abuse.

People need to realise that corporate sites are not our friends, and all record, photos, videos, articles constituting the entire record of your campaigns can go down the memory hole in a single step. Plus it's insidious facial recognition algorithms and graphing technologies can build up a profile of all the people in your campaign, invaluable information which is readily available to governments who want it.

Use the resource properly and support it and it can be great. It is only as good or as bad as the articles and comments posted here by members of the public.

Garbage in, garbage out. Use it or lose it.

Fred - I agree.

We need free speech. We need good informative postings.

People need to be able to express opinions freely and Indymedia Ireland should be supported in every way possible to continue against the right wing and vested interests, who have control over their own media sources.
