Mayday Festival of Independent Media

The Mayday festival of Independent Media is the product of a collaboration between Indymedia Ireland and the Community Media Network. It brings together actors from the community media world with media activists from the global indymedia network to reveal the best of local and global radical grassroots media. With 15 film screenings, 9 open forums and 11 practical workshops, plus a cafe, photo exhibition and information hall, we’ve got a lot that you should see. The festical will culminate with the media centre being used to allow independent journalists from all over the world to provide detailed and honest coverage of the events of May 1st 2004 in Dublin.

Indymedia and the Mayday Centre

In 1999, prior to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) protests in Seattle, a group of community and independent media activists looked at how the upcoming protests were likely to be covered in the mainstream media. Their solution to the problems that were likely to be faced by protestors looking to get their message out was the establishment of an Independent Media centre which acted as a clearing house for all the information generated by grassroots media coverage.

With a heavy web presence and extensive use of new technologies for creation and distribution of video, audio and other media, the Independent Media Centre acted as an effective conduit during the Seattle and later protests generating 2 million + hits and inspiring a global network of media activists. Based around a system of ‘Open Publishing’ * and a slogan of ‘Be the Media’ the Indymedia network now has 150+ groups working in 90+ countries on all five continents. It has launched newspapers, produced films and regular news reels, run weekly and monthly screenings, established a translation network and run a caravan through Africa as well as producing grassroots reports and media on every imaginable issue. The Media Centres, which are established at major protests, social fora and other events, have become an important part of the infrastructure of the emerging protest movement. In Genoa, in 2001, the Italian police raided the Indymedia centre in the Diaz school as part of the repression of those protests. The Irish Indymedia group was formed by people returning from Genoa, who along with producing a documentary, Berlusconi’s Mousetrap, on the protests set up the irish website www.indymedia.ie in November 2001.

Since then the Irish website has covered the US troops moving through Shannon, the bin protests and trade union struggles as well as famously filming the Gardai batonning RTS attendees on Dame Street. It provides an outlet for many stories that never see the mainstream media as well as breaking many other stories. On an average week 15000 unique visitors read 100+ stories and up to 1,000 comments are contributed through the open publishing system.

The media centre, which will run for 10 days from 23rd April until 3rd May is the largest ‘real world’ intiative of Indymedia Ireland yet.

Community Media Network and the Mayday Centre

Although often little known outside of their own contexts, there exist a large number of community media projects in Ireland, covering such areas as community video and community television, community radio, community photography, alternative print, and new media or Internet use.

These organisations and projects are usually small - some are locally based, some belonging to communities of interest that also belong to national and international networks. Their aim is to support their communities, to promote social justice and to reinforce participatory and democratic structures. Community Media Network is focused on promoting the common aims of all such groups and supporting the growth of the sector. In 1998 the Steering Group approved the following mission statement.

"The mission of CMN is to ensure that all groups, especially those disadvantaged and marginalised, are fully informed about, and can actively participate in and share control of, community and alternative media. The goal is thereby to enhance effective and democratic means of expression and contribute to progressive social change. CMN seeks to play a catalytic role in this. CMN as an organisation is open for membership to all those who share these goals."

In June 2001, community organisations at a Community Media Workshop in Dublin City established the Community Media Forum through which groups developed proposals for community media in Dublin city. It has also been a platform for community organisations to lobby and campaign around media rights. The CMF member groups will be joining with CMN to bring a range of community media to the Mayday Centre.

The Mayday Centre offers a wonderful opportunity to see how an independent community media centre can work. Collaboration with Indymedia on this project is probably the first real manifestation of the longstanding, but little acknowledged relationship between community and independent media activists. It is an experiment, one we hope will allow for a real and lively exchange of ideas, skills, and information across a broad spectrum of interest.

Plan of Indymedia Centre.

There will also be Video-DJ's (VeeJays) showing off their tricks in the main screening area, an information lounge where different groups can give out literature and present themselves to the public. The CMN will also be hosting information sessions and film showings to help let community groups know about the work of the Community Media Network.

Photo Exhibition, Café & Information Hall

Open throughout festival - Exhibition Space.

The Indymedia network produces a huge amount of photographic material, much of it produced by volunteers covering a wide range of topics. The Irish Indymedia Photography group will be selecting the best of Irish and International work to exhibit during the week.

Various Times - Computer Room.

Over the Mayday weekend, when the centre is open, the computer room will be available with approximately 12 computers with internet connections allowing indymedia reporters to post their accounts of events to the internet.

CMN Information Sessions

6pm Mon. April 26th, and Wed. April 28th - Screening Space.

  • CRIS (Communication Rights in the Information Society): Seán Ó Siochrú, CRIS Spokesperson, will give an information session on a campaign that is working on a global level to assert the right to communicate and the right to use communications media.
  • Community Television: Margaret Gillan, Secretary DCTV will bring people up to date with developments in community television nationally, and how DCTV sees the Dublin station working.

CMN Screenings

7pm Mon. April 26th, and Thurs. April 28th - Video Room.

Community Television DCTV and CMN will run a series of screening/discussions on video and media strategies around a number of themes. Sessions that include thematic focus on Youth; Resonding to the Drugs Crisis; Health; Community Action and Community Arts are being planned.

The sessions are for groups interested in how they can use community television and want to influence content (or indeed produce programmes) for Dublin Community Television. We will get together, watch some videos using different ways of working, and share ideas on the programming we want to see on DCTV, with an emphasis on our working priorities. This is important as the community television licences will be awarded this year and DCTV wants to ensure that community groups are well informed, able and ready to benefit from the community stations.

Community Radio: NEAR FM will be recording, broadcasting, and running workshops.

Community Photography: CMN has invited its groups to bring community photography to the main exhibition alongside Indymedia photographers.


The fall in price of high-quality video cameras and the advent of desktop video editing has heralded an explosion in independently produced films We will be showcasing 12 different Indymedia films which prove that you don't need a big budget to produce quality films. These films have been chosen on the basis of their quality and because they cover topics that have been overlooked by the mainstream media. Our film screenings will be followed by a discussion of any issues raised by the film. The discussions will be introduced in most cases by a panel of speakers, often including the directors.

Short Films From the Irish Movement Against the War.

12 am Sunday April 25th - Screening Space
50 minutes. Indymedia Ireland, 2003-2004 Further Details

Shannon3 Short films from Independent film makers in Ireland. From pulling down the fences at Shannon to planespotting and massive marches in Dublin. Indymedia was there.

Pulling Down The Fences: 10 minutes, filmed by Indymedia's Chekov from behind the lines during the mass trespass of Shannon airport in October 2002.

From Clare to Kuwait: 20 minute documentary by Martin Fahy, an independent film-maker from Galway, about the links between the Shannon planes and the war far away.

Spotting Death in the sky: 20 minute documentary by Indymedia's Aoibheann, concentrating on the role of plane spotters in exposing the flow of US war planes through Shannon airport

Panel:Martin Fahy (Galway Independent Film-maker), Aoibheann (Indymedia Ireland) and Tim Hourigan, the plane spotter extraordinaire who exposed the Shannon planes on Indymedia months before the mainstream media caught on.

Berlusconi's Mousetrap, Genoa July 2001.

7pm Sunday April 25th - Screening Space
2 hours 41 minutes. Indymedia Ireland, 2002 Further Details

Berlusconi's MousetrapThe Protests against the G8 in July 2001 in Genoa Italy were the biggest and most significant protests in Western Europe since the Poll Tax riots in the UK. Italian Prime Minister Sylvio Berlusconi, wanting to impress his new best mate George W. Bush, orchestrated a brutal Media/Police preemptive strike on the Anti-Capitalist Movements' biggest First World mobilisation to date.

When the weekend of protests ended Carlo Guiliani was dead and a school full of sleeping activists had been attacked in what is popularly referred to as the 'Chilean Night'. This film traces the events of the three days of protests in detail and poses the question - Was it all a setup? If Seattle was 'Star Wars' then this is 'The Empire Strikes Back'.

This feature length film is made from a combination of footage of the Genoa protests against the G8 shot by 10 members of IMC Ireland, material from the Italy IMC Archives and material from various other sources. This compelling footage combined with on the spot interviews and reenacted voiceover commentary and analysis from various websites which were active during the protests provides a in-depth blow by blow retelling of the story of the three days of the Genoa protests against the G8.

Panel: Eamonn Crudden (Director, Indymedia Ireland), Conor McLoughlin (Reporter on the Black Bloc in Genoa).

Not in My Name

7pm Monday April 26th - Screening Space
41 minutes. Platform Film & TV Choice Further Details

Not in My NameThis film explains the background to the Afghanistan war, and the central part the US played in actually creating the power of theTaliban and Osama bin Laden. It also shows the strength of the anti-war movement hardly reported in the British media.

It explores the way the control of television coverage has become a central issue in the war, with mainstream broadcasters relaying government propaganda and independent TV stations the targets for US bombs.

Says associate producer Norman Thomas: "The aim of the film is to alert people of the very dangerous situation the US attack on Afghanistan has created in the world. The US say they will attack terrorists anywhere and everywhere in the world. But who decides who is a terrorist? Who will tell the US who they can or cannot attack?"

Contributors include: Award-winning journalist John Pilger, Tony Benn, Tariq Ali, Channel 4's Jon Snow, Bianca Jagger, Labour MP George Galloway, Paul Foot, Salma Yacoob, as well as many others.

Panel: Caoimhe Butterly (Anti-war and Palestinian rights Activist who has recently been to Iraq)

The global justice movement: besieging the summits.

7pm Tuesday April 27th - Screening Space
1 Hour 7 Minutes. Guerrillavision Further Details

Crowd Bites WolfSince Seattle Guerillavision have been documenting the campaigns against globalisation from behind the barricades. These are stylistic hard hitting films (Big Rattle in Seattle, Capitals Ill and Crowd Bites wolf) which pull no punches. But be careful, watching all three together will have you hitting the streets and heading for the nearest symbol of capitalist oppression.

On one side of the planet jetliners fell skyscrapers, on the other cruse missiles level villages. Bush and the boy Blair embark on the last crusade and the world dutifully subjugates itself to US supremacy – you know this aint intended as a temporary state of affairs. Capitalism is in hyper-drive, the final buyout has begun. The world is instructed to choose between one murdering billionaire (Bush) and another (Bin Laden). But, there are those who choose another way, people who will not show fealty to any master, be it enshrined in a bank vault, in the scriptures or on Pennsylvania Avenue. They are wise to the masterplan. And as power brokers and stockers vie for superiority in the air and on the airwaves, they are ready to whip the not-so-magic carpet of control away. Whatever recognition, power is nothing. Without fear freedom may yet prevail.

Big Rattle in Seattle 23 minutes of incitement and inspiration from the November 30th uprising against the World Trade Organisation. An angry tide of descent finally draws a line in the sand. The time has come to overthrow the dictatorship of the economy and get on with building a society based on real freedom.

Capital's Ill As capitalisms demise draws closer, 20,000 take to the streets of Washington DC to spanner the World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s spring time carve up. The scaffold is build, the basket is ready. 20 minutes.

Crowd Bites Wolf The bank and fund scuttle of to Prague, but an international army of insurrection is waiting. Caught in the middle one man finds his anticipated fortnight on the piss shelved by a chance encounter. 23 minutes.

Panel: Andrew Flood, (Independent photographer who documented the Blue Bloc in Prague)

200 km - the long march of SINTEL workers

7pm Wednesday April 28th - Screening Space
1 Hour 40 Minutes. DISCUSIÓN14

The SINTEL workers (SINTEL was one of the largest Telefónica subsidiaries at the moment of its privatization) start a protest march from six different places in Spain. About 1500 workers and their families walked for eight days all over Spain to meet in Madrid on May 1st, for the Labor Day demonstration, and demand a solution to their situation. Almost two years after they pulled up the camp they had set up on the Castellana, the main street of Madrid, which they had baptised “Camp Hope”, and where 1800 workers stayed for six months, the agreements reached with the government and Telefónica, who committed to giving the Sintel workers jobs equivalent to those they had lost, have not been fulfilled. The Sintel workers came back to Madrid to demand the decent jobs they had been promised.

The documentary film 200 Km is a road movie, which follows the SINTEL workers on their way to Madrid the past month of April, 2003. It has been presented to popular acclaim at recent festivals: "Made in Spain" "Horizontes Latinos" Festival Internacional de Cine de San Sebastián.

Panel: Indymedia Spain videographers from Discusion14

Non-Violence for a Change

7pm Friday April 30th - Screening Space
Just Us Productions, Sept 2001 Further Details

The right to take direct action on issues we strongly believe in is a right protected in all free nations. But what is nonviolence? Can it be effective? Is property damage violent? Should all direct action be nonviolent? This film follows several non-violent activists, they explain why for them, violence against other people is deeply counter-productive.

This film follows three campaigners, from very different backgrounds and with different experiences, as they explore their visions of nonviolence.

Alison Matthias - recently graduated and now works for the campaigning organisation People and Planet. She has been put off large-scale demonstrations by the images of violence that she has seen in the media.

Martin Shaw is a full time activist who has been involved in a wide range of social change issues including helping to organise economic globalisation protests in Seattle and Prague. He has doubts about the effectiveness of violent protests in the long term.

Ellen Moxley is a peace campaigner. She was part of the Trident Ploughshares action that openly caused £80,000 of damage to the nuclear missile programme. After five months in prison she was found not guilty.

Panel: Starhawk (US based non-violent activist and pagan).

Holiday Camp

7pm Sunday May 2nd - Screening Space
47 minutes, Adelaide/Hamburg 2002, Further Details

Holiday CampHoliday Camp investigates the current Australian immigration policies, in the context of 200 years of colonization. The unique documentary style juxtaposes challenging images, interviews, and personal experiences to intrigue and engage the audience in a satirical deconstruction of racism.

The pivotal action of the documentary is the 2002 Woomera detention center outbreak, which represents a significant protest against the political construction of national borders. To understand the different forms of protest, we invite the audience to consider how people are positioned differently around this real border. We also dismantle authorities in unexpected ways, to highlight that ignorance, as a weapon of mass construction, allows a privileged few to determine the plight of others - and yet we are all contained within an increasingly fortified global community.

Holiday Camp reclaims the voices of the marginalized and connects the issues of Indigenous dispossession, genocide, national constructions and incarceration of refugees, which are often portrayed as unrelated or divisive. Holiday Camp takes its name from a quotation by Phillip Ruddock, (Australian Minister of Immigration and Indigenous Affairs) "...we go out of our way to ensure that the detention centers provide as much humanity as reasonably possible, without making them holidaycamps..."

Holiday Camp has been shown across Europe during No Borders Actions. The only person to be convicted as a result of the breakout was a young Irishman.

Panel: Roseanna Flynn (Residents Against Racism and Campaign Against the Racist Referendum).


Opening Forum: An introduction to the Indymedia Festival

7pm Friday April 23rd - Screening Space.

Speakers from the Indymedia collective and the Community Media Network will host an introduction to the festival. This is the session where you can sign up for workshops later in the week and volunteer to be part of one of the Indymedia News teams to cover the Mayday events and to help in the running of the centre.

Although, we will still accept people later in the week, there are a limited number of places on the workshops and the earlier you apply, the better the chance you have.

Media Forum: Inside the Irish Mainstream Media

11am Saturday April 24th - Screening Space.

In the first half of the nineteenth century, a radical press emerged that reached a national working-class audience. This alternative press was effective in reinforcing class consciousness: it unified the workers because it fostered an alternative value system and framework for looking at the world, and because it promoted a greater collective confidence by repeatedly emphasizing the potential power of working people to effect social change through the force of 'combination' and organized action.

Nowadays, this radical press has all but disappeared from the world of mainstream media and the vast majority of our information is controlled by a tiny number of powerful individuals. Noam Chomsky has famously argued that in our current society the mass media operates according to a "propaganda model" where the mass media produces information that passes through a number of filters, which all serve to shape information to the needs of the powerful.

This forum includes speakers from both inside the mainstream media and those outside attempting to create alternatives. It will take a look at the media in Ireland and internationally and ask how free and objective it is in reality and what can be done to improve it.

Panel: Vincent Browne (RTE, Irish Times), Harry Browne (writer & lecturer in Journalism), Sean O'Siochrú (CRIS campaign), Ciaran Moore (Indymedia Editor).

Forum on Europe: EU - Reform it or Resist it?

2.30pm Saturday April 24th - Screening Space.

The workings of the EU and its current political direction remain virtually unknown in Ireland. It's institutions are arcane, some of its most important committees and bodies are highly secretive and unknown outside the circles of political lobbyists and experts. Although the Irish government has been holding forums on Europe since 2002, ostensibly intended to "facilitate a broad discussion of issues relevant to Ireland's membership of an enlarging Union, and to consider the range of topics arising in the context of the debate on the Future of Europe", these forums have in reality been little more than propaganda exercises for the government.

The forum's genesis was in the aftermath of the government's defeat in the first Nice referendum and their real role was to ensure that the population didn't vote 'the wrong way' a second time. Rather than facilitating any type of broad debate, they have been heavily weighted towards powerful business interests and have focused on incorporating the various different sectoral interests within Irish capitalism into active support for the European project. After a year and a half of forums, and 47 meetings knowledge of the workings of the EU among the public remains as low as ever.

This forum will give some of the excluded voices a chance to explain their criticisms of the EU and their understanding of how it works. What is the Lisbon agenda, the article 133 committee, the Bilderburg group, and how much power do they wield?

This forum includes speakers from both inside the mainstream media and those outside attempting to create alternatives. It will take a look at the media in Ireland and internationally and ask how free and objective it is in reality and what can be done to improve it.

The panel for this discussion will include members of Democracy and Public Services in Europe (DAPSE), Dublin Grassroots Network/Libertarians Against Nice (LAN), Danish Trade Unionists and other groups that have campaigned against the current direction of the EU..

Mayday Forum - what's the big deal?

4.30pm Sunday April 25th - Screening Space.

Saturday, May 1 will see a ceremony in Dublin, as part of Ireland's EU presidency, to mark the expansion of the EU from 15 to 25 states. The eyes of the world will be on Ireland and the government had planned to host a public celebration to welcome the accession countries.

However, these plans have collapsed, the part has been cancelled and public discontent has reared its ugly head. Several groups have announced their intention to hold protests on Mayday and the prospect of these protests have grabbed the media headlines. It now appears that,instead of a city in celebration, Dublin will become a militarised city for the expansion day, with thousands of police and troops on guard to prevent any disruption to the event.

The media coverage of the protests has focused almost exclusively on the perceived threat of violent protestors and the public still knows little of the reasons why people have decided to organise protests for this day. This forum will give the groups who are organising protests on the Mayday weekend and their supporters a chance to explain the underlying causes for their discontent and why they have chosen Mayday as a day to make their objections public.

The panel will include speakers from Dublin Grassroots, Another Europe is Possible as well as representatives from other groups who will be protesting on Mayday or who support the protests.

Social Forum: From the World to the European Social Forum.

7pm Thursday April 29th - Screening Space.

51,000 people from 131 countries put their heads together to discuss what is wrong with the world and how to work together to change it. In early 2002, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, public officials, representatives of non-governmental organizations, indigenous nations, farmers, and labor -- including 11,000 young people -- gathered for the World Social Forum. Called in response to the elite gathering of the World Economic Forum in New York, this week of workshops, panel discussions, and high-spirited demonstrations was inspirational for those attending.

Then in November 2002, the European Social forum met in Florence and brought 40,000 people together, double the number expected. It has since met in Paris in 2003. This discussion will start off with a short Independent Video about the social forums.

As the forum has gone on, there has been some tension between the traditional Marxist and social-democratic parties within it and the new network type movements. The consensus principle in particular has been seen by many as a barrier to making decisions. In the run up to the European Social Forum this year in London in October, the two camps remain divided by the question of the best way forward for the Social Forums. The panel will include speakers from both sides of the debate.

The panel will include Barry Finnegan from the Irish Social Forum, A speaker from Indymedia UK who is part of the horizontals side on the London ESF organising group and a speaker from the Socialist Workers Party, from the other side of the debate.

Mayday Forum - What protests are planned for Mayday?

3pm Friday April 30th - Screening Space.

The May Day protests have attracted a media feeding frenzy and a series of threats of police repression. If you were to believe what you read in the papers, the Mayday protestors will be arming themselves to the teeth and attempting to re-enact Easter 1916 in Dublin. On the eve of the protests, with large numbers of protestors and media arriving from all over the world, this forum will give people a chance to find out what is actually planned and raise any issues or objections that they might have with the tactics of any of the protestors.

The panel will include speakers from Dublin Grassroots Network, Another Europe is Possible and the London Mayday Collective.

Mayday Feedback Forum - What really happened on Mayday?

3pm Sunday May 2nd - Screening Space.

Since the birth of the summit protest movement, the question of what actually happened at the protests has often been hotly contested in their aftermath, with different groups taking radically different interpretations of what happened and why. This session will give participants in the events themselves a chance to explain their understanding of what actually happened.

The composition of the panel will depend on what happens!

Indymedia Feedback Forum - Back to the Real World

5pm Monday April May 3rd - Screening Space.

The Mayday Centre experience, the Mayday weekend events and the future. This forum will include members of several foreign indymedia centres and participants in the protests in a look at what has been achieved and where we go to from here.

the media centre and programme are looking great
i am concerned about the exhibition.
perhaps all things are already worked out for it, if so can clarification be made

originally i thought it would be an open exhibition, that anybody could arrive at and visit, now it seems its not as open, people have to be screened and approved on entry? (i understand the need fro security etc)

2-the exhibition, static and dynamic parts
at present all the talk seems to be on the programme of events and the exhibition sounds like - and there will be imc photos on the walls.
is there a group thinking about the exhib, whats going up, in what way
i think this is a fine opportunity for imc to communicate what it is, whats going on in the world, excite people and get more invovled.

it would be good and interesting, and good as a sort of model of "open systems" if the stuff is on the walls, people see it and have the opportunity to respond to it. whether this is having a feedback or comments book that people write their views into, or printouts from the thread on imc- as people see the stuff, the access the site, find that piece, add their views on the thread, each day next page(s) of thread printed out and added on top of previous pages= a pyhsical representation of the virtual system that is indymedia.ie
is there open parts of the exhib, whereby anyone can add stuff, if so what rules must be used?

will vid footage be part of the exhib, if noise is prob will there be computers/ tvs with earphones?- could this stuff be housed in the little room in the screenings room, access from the corner door?
will there be a space/ board/ table for people to add images, their stuff etc, if so how is this managed?

is there a website or part of indymedia.ie set up specifically for the exhib- a sort of virtual side?

will we have a part of the exhib with all the cuttings from "mainstream media" about mayday, indymedia etc- anybody video the primetime piece, will this be shown?- can it be viewed at some stage?

3- publicity of event
can we now send word out to everyone, using all systems, that this is happening- that we would like people to attend and get invovled- ie event guide all newspapers etc
invite some groups to attend- artistic, cultural etc
announce an opening night, invite people- as is common for exhibitions
- flyers and pamphlets being distributed for it
sorry if this has rambled- i feel there is need for wider and more open communication about this event/exhibition, that now is the time to be approaching people and asking them if they would like to get invovled- asking for material to show etc
where is the best place for discussion on this issue- the website, imc-lists- public meetings- emails
i would suggest an open meeting, maybe in the centre, as was used for clean up- maybe next tuesday eventing?
i hope many people come to this who are involved
but more so i hope many people come to this who are not involved, who know little or nothing about indymedia, politics or the state of the world
it is these people who should be our target audience
if things are presented in a clear way
if those things say- the world is always changing and being part of the process that tries to imrove things is exciting and open to all to get invoved, so be excited, get invovled, enjoy the life
today i go into art gallerys with tthe hope that i see something which grabs me, shakes me, affects me, makes me want to do something
it rarely happens, most all i view is utter shite
indymedia exhibition will do that/ should do that

today art stuff is mostly something to look at- we have become a very viewing culture
we go into gallery, view stuff, respond in thoughts or words and thats about it
this exhib can be an "open participitive system"- anyone can come and see- be excited, then most importantly- get involved
thats the key
if its exciting more and more will get invovled
and it is exciting
the way life should be

think global/ art local
we are invovled with a similar project in lille- euro city of culture next july, perhaps some of you will get invovled

is a short 35 second film which tries to make same point in clearer shorter way

this was originally posted here:
on Apr 10 2004, 11:58am
there is still no answer
so imc- can you please answer me

im not sure if you have made a decision about publicising this (or part of it) as an "art exhibition" and in that contacting all relevant papers mags etc that inform the public about these events
im sure we would need to get in touch with all groups asap so as to have event in listings in next weeks papers....

i would if i was given some sort of go-ahead, but all above questions are still unanswered. sorry have not been around in real world as v busy with stuff

bottom line::
indymedia exhibition- is it being publicised- if so where?
just on indymedia and email lists succeeds in informing the "same old heads"

we really need to inform those that are totally unaware of indymedia and the state of world we are talking about

Of course the secret police will be there, sure there are dozens of them spying on all the EU summit protest groups at the moment. We know and they know we know. It's all part of trying to scare people into staying at home.

So they 'infiltrate' the indymedia weekend and get to discover what the problems with the EU are and why an alternative media is needed. Who knows maybe some will even wake up from their deep slumber and quit the force. (Don't hold your breath on that chance though).

The state is working hard to create a climate of fear and repression in advance of the Mayday weekend. We need to be careful not to add to this panic. It's time to stand up, not hide away.

would you ever STOP harassing people if you think they arent doing enough to create more "nodes" (or whatever) and DO IT YOURSELF

"the same old heads" what the fuck does that mean? IMC Ireland has only been around for just over 2 years or so, so how can it possibly be 'old'?

maybe if you had spent the time typing out the above questions differently by sending out emails to other groups, you might get closer to your holy grail.

Irish Sun, April 23rd, p. 2

"Cops can't stop May Day demo"
Fury as Phoenix Park closed
by Senan Hogan

Protesters last night vowed to defy cops' attempts to stop May Day
demonstrations by sealing off Phoenix Park.

They accused gardai of being "heavy handed" and said street protests
WOULD go ahead over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Dublin Grassroots Network pledged: "If we can't march through
Phoenix Park, we'll march AROUND it."

Four thousands [sic] cops, backed by the Army and riot squads, will
police 5,000 protestors in a multi-million euro security operation - one of
the biggest ever undertaken by the Garda.

The decision to shut the park followed a meeting yetserday where plans
for a concert and carnival on EU Enlargement Day were outlined to

Gardai declared it off limits fearing for the safety of 25 European leaders
meeting at nearby Farmleigh House to mark the entry of ten new
member states to the EU.

But Dublin Grassroots Network spokesman Laurence Cox fumed: "We
stand by our right to express our opinion. We have not called off the
planned events."

He labelled the police operation "a ridiculous waste of tax-payers'
money". [I didn't, but who's counting?]


Carnival organiser Roy [sic] Hearne said: "This action by the Garda is
over-the-top and heavy-handed.

"Protesters have the right to express themselves as close to where the
EU leaders are meeting.

"There's no reason why peaceful protesters can't have a carnival to
highlight issues of war, racism and corporate greed." Mr Hearne said he
would appeal to the Assistat Commissioner to get the park closure

Protesters have also accused Garda bosses of "hyping up" trouble on
May Day to warn off potential demonstrators.

Green Party MEP Patricia McKenna said: "The hype raised over May
Day shows irresponsibility by the establishment. It sends out a message
that there is going to be trouble in Dublin.

"There is clearly a strategy here to set down a marker for protests when
George Bush arrives in Ireland."

Trade union official and protester Mick O'Reilly said: "We met with
gardai today to see how we could co-operate with them.

But what we got was a hugely disproportionate reaction and we're very

However for a variety of reasons best non-disclosed the safety of the team I would travel with may not be guaranteed in the Majority Irish State under the present regime.

That means "regime change". I am very confident that all of you will achieve that.

And when it is done, and you've cleaned up the snakes and realised that you are not closer to "Boston" than "Galicia", I'd love to see ye all. Best of luck! Do it well. And we remember "we are winning". First the War, then the Reformation then the evolving revolution will continue ever on...

El Pais started to issue in colloboration with many other entities and the press "salvat" an encyclopeadia for readers in the last year. Letter "A" dealt with oodles of things beginning with letter "A". Like "angels" and the "antichrist" and "anarchy". Note was made that we hold the "antichrist" to be present when the tenets of Occidental cultural history are undermined and attacked this cultural threads being preserved in the Books and sacred places of what for most is thought of as the Church of Rome.
For many Dubrovnik was as seat of Cyril a sacred place for the Eastern Tradition of those beliefs. For many Baghdad library was an example of keeping the books safe. For many the perversion of the internet was the most serious undermining of humanist and religious values ever. For most the disclosure or slow realisation of genetic modifications and cloning activity based on the Camp X tradition of Both Occidental States and the Japanese in ww2 flew in the face of "civilised values".
"Anarchy" was presented as that Libertarian tradition of Socialism which began in teh immediated aftermath of the French Revolution which many know to have been a period of "antichrist" and has continued to this day in many societies and through many dark years of history to be a cornerstone of political development and philosophical theory of the nascent XXI century through it's many activists, and writers and Tshirt holders.

It is curious that in BCN, the HQ and Bookshop of the rosey fire, which houses the CNT sits on the corner of Placa Angel above the popular bakery called "bakery of Bethleham". That is coz none of us "sincere" thinkers every forget where that special manchild of Western Civilisation is thought to have been born.

Now we are not going to undermine your civilisation anymore than is neccesary, and you want God to have a place somewhere and He will, and you want Anarchy and Socialism and you will. And you want the Garden, and you will. And there are many things you don't want, so we are sorting them out. So Patience dear punters you have the Space and Time and Wisdom to build Sion, which interestingly is always a big collective type thing of happy peer responsive dudes an dudettes.

you stick by us
We stick by you.
