building up the RADICAL radio network

category international | arts and media | news report author Saturday September 10, 2005 14:11author by dunkauthor email fuspey at yahoo dot co dot uk Report this post to the editors

plug in, tune in,

as more peoples work involves sitting all day at computers, more people are beginning to tune into top quality radio shows being put out by the global network of media activists.

there have been various real world discussions about how the current state of things is with the radical radio network, how it can become an extremely powerful tool for communication, education, interaction etc

so ill just post a few thoughts and links to audio files and id invite people to add any links they have, know about, like........
indymedia radio network

local:
firstly theres our own top quality radio show : majority world, that has been run ober the years, giving voices to the voiceless. NEARfm broadcast on 101.6fm, but also now broadcast over the web, so you can tune in direct on thursday evenings 4.30- 5.30 and also catch the repeat on fri morning 9.00am

global:
G8 radical radio network
formed during the G8 protests, they put out live streams to keep people up to date with events as they occured on the ground, they also brought together many different radio activists from around the world and have created an extensive archive
an example:
at 8.00 am i was interviewed by a woman from the gambia, that interview went out live to some stations, the show was held on the server and through various techniques that show went out on 400+ local community radio stations, for many in remote parts of africa the radio is the tool to connect with the world
http://www.g8radio.net/
this interview went through the AMARC network
AMARC is an international non-governmental organization serving the community radio movement, with almost 3 000 members and associates in 110 countries.
and the african network was the SIMBANI network
http://www.simbani.amarc.org/page.php?content=info&type=info&num=1
"Simbani, which means «talk» in ChiChewa, a language spoken in Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique, is a coup for the community media sector in Africa and gives space to voices not usually heard in the media."

"Celebrate our Victory, Feel our Power, Build Radical Community, Be the Media

At the WTO protests in Seattle, we had a collective vision. We saw beyond the borders that divide us. We saw people come together across every kind of political and cultural difference and stand up in a way that we have not seen in this country for decades. We saw peaceful protests shut down one of the most powerful institutions in the world and we saw a system dazed and frightened by the sound of our voices.

People left Seattle energized, believing that they had taken part in the birth of a new movement. "

sound system from ecotopia

author by iosafpublication date Sat Sep 10, 2005 14:55author address author phone Report this post to the editors

As many people will think looking at the Ecotopia photo, you can build a "Mad Max meets Tank Girl" sound system that runs on pedal power from scrap. & its true.
But you don't even need that much scrap or pedal power.
Anyone interested in radio and who works on radio (& I do) ought have the curiosity to know how it works, and how you make one.
I made my first "wireless" when I was 13, and I'm not that practical. And ever since I've been fiddling around with antennas and dishes, as I often joke to other members of the team. & I've been pleased to see that my last recycled antenna held up to extreme storm conditions and is still working better than the "store bought" expensive version the neighbour had which was lost to wind.

Here's the easiest way to get a receiver together:-

(now bear in mind this design was the standard for European resistance groups from Spanish civil war right up to project Liberty in the 1970s) You won't get RTE1 or NearFM or even the local cop shop on one of these without "fiddling". Practise makes perfect:-
http://ethel.as.arizona.edu/~collins/astro/subjects/radio-2.html
http://www.thebest.net/wuggy/build.htm

& as soon as I find easy instructions on how to make a basic transmittor I'll tell you if no-one else does.

This could be a new story, but for the time being...It appears that radio.indymedia.org has been frozen.

I tried to post a 5MB mp3, but after three attempts in an hour (and it would normally take 5 minutes), I wrote them an email. Failed to deliver.

For all Saturday (though they're probably 6 hours behind), they've just one post at 1:27am, compared to their average of 8 a day.

Our IMC is already stretched, so looks like we've noer radio network till radio.indymedia.org is up and running again.

It appears that www.radio4all.org is changing server, so contributors turned to radio.indymedia.org at least for the time being.

Subsequent overload may be the cause for the freeze.

www.archive.org is another alternative - I'm listening to Democracy Now at the moment from that site. DN's audio archives here go back to 1996.

indyradio or IRN or ....needs infrastructure.

BTW: very soon, most people anywhere in the world will not have to sit in front of a computer to listen to indyradio - 3g and wi-fi technology should mean free listening on the move.

Also, some people in IMC Ireland think that low ratings on radio.indymedia.org mean that no-one is listening and that podcasts are a 'specialist' activity.

Firstly, the radio.indymedia ratings refer to current listenership, so double digits at any one time adds up. We are only starting, but judge each mp3 as you hear it, not branding them all as esoteric etc. Like any print article, it's advisable to look at the topic to see if you'd be interested in it.

Contributors should make sure that the sound quality is good enough that they themselves would find it listenable and interesting.

The prospect of indymedia would have seemed esoteric or specialised ten years ago. This is the next logical step in democratising media.

rampART radio is an internet radio station which was orginally set up to provide independent coverage during the London European Social Forum held in October 2004. When the ESF finished rampART struggled on putting out daily news and events listings, along with some of the best revolutionary tunes and parodies you are likely to come across anywhere on the net. Over the last year the station has had it's share of up's and downs, including a month of down time when we lost our ADSL internet connection after the post office decided not to deliver any more post (including our phone bill). During the G8 in July, rampART radio provided 5 days of live up-to-the-minute coverage and enjoyed it's highest ever audiences as the stream was rebroadcast around the world. rampART radio also played a role in covering the protests against DSEi and even the London bombings after the G8.

Now, almost one year since it was created, I propose to kill rampART radio.

Ok, not exactly kill but certainly a rebirth in a very different form.

Internet radio suffers from many problems, some of which are slowing be solved by technology and some which can't. The two main problems are content and listeners.
It is so easy to set up a station that there are litter ally tens of thousands of internet stations fighting over what is actually quite a small potential audience. Unlikely real broadcast radio, internet streams require expensive computers and broadband internet connections to listen to them. This may change as WiFi technology advances and provides battery operated pocket internet radio players, but in the meantime it remains a very elitist technology. Obviously real broadcast radio would be better but the state makes sure that only the rich and compliant have easy access to the air waves. Unless we want to be harassed by the licencing authorities we have to continue with internet radio and make the best of it.

Which brings us to content. Making new content on a regular basis (such as daily news bulletins) requires commitment. In this country there doesn't seem to be that many activist projects producing audio content. Indymedia Radio have been producing a live one hour show almost every week for Resonance FM, as have Small Slow Peasants. Up north there is Below The Pavement. During the G8 there was the Radical Radio Collective which produced quite a bit of content during the week, but DSEi saw only one audio file uploaded to indymedia. It is hard to maintain or justify a political radio stream with this little new content.

Indymedia sees loads of written reports and photos for most demos and protests. It is also seeing an massive increase in the number of video clips being uploaded. It is perhaps strange that audio clips are so rare since the technology has been around so much longer - perhaps it simply isn't as sexy as video and digital photography. However, audio does have many advantages to video, it is easy and quicker to produce usable content. Arguable, audio encourages better reporting and can convey a better understanding of issues and motives than most video clips.

So where am I going with this?

I am proposing to debrand rampART radio - relaunch it under a new new and radically broaden involvement in the project.

By dropping the name rampART radio the project can be liberated from it's physicality and invite new participation beyond the rampART. It's new name and concept will hopefully encourage a much wider feeling of ownership in the project which will become an umbrella or platform for existing and new audio based media projects.

The proposal is based on a concept I had early on in the history of rampART radio when I argued it should be called something more generic like Squat Radio or Real Radio. However it now takes on board lessons we have learnt during the last year about the importance providing non streaming access to connect (ie. public archives) and the benefits of content syndication. Additionally this proposal is inspired by a project based in Barcelona called R23 (see www.r3.cc) which incorporates web based remote management of archiving, playlist editing, scheduling and streaming.

The new radio project would hopefully look something like this;


New name - Real Radio / R Radio / or whatever
New website - probably based on NetJuke and the system used by r3.cc
Closer integration with Indymedia UK and other political websites and forums.
Multiple physical studios, including rampART studio.
Training and regular management and content meetings.
Major emphasis on archiving and content syndication


A priority would be to encourage individuals and groups to produce regular content in the knowledge that it would be streamed on an established radio station and archived so that other stations are likely to rebroadcast it or individuals download and listen to it at their own convenience. Contributors would form the management collective that would sort out scheduling issues etc by consensus. The collective would communicate by email list, facilitate skill sharing and training, plus maintain a list of equipment and expertise on which they might call.

The website would act as a front end to both listeners and contributors. It would enable remote management of the stream playlists and schedules and also facilitate the addition of new content to the ac hives and playlists. Listeners would not only be able to listen to the stream or download something from the archive but also be encouraged to get involved in content creation.

I envision different groups (eg. the Samba band, No Borders, Smash EDO, Schnews etc.) and different spaces (eg. rampART, Sumac Centre, the Basement, 1in12, Cowley Club etc); creating their own content on a regular basis and acting as nodes to promote the station locally. Perhaps some squats might rebroadcast on micro power to the residents or simply pipe to communal rooms.

Content wise I would hope for daily news summaries from indymedia and other sources, events listings, a weekly schnews reading, detailed reports of actions by the participants, recordings of cultural events, gigs etc taking place in 'our' spaces, interviews with interesting visitors about what's going on in their countries or with their projects, discussions and debates, political musics, and drunken ranting. Basically, the kind of stuff rampART has been doing for the last year but much much more of it from a many more spaces, groups and individuals. (Also encouraging people doing video to consider also ripping decent audio from their footage).

Why? Because we must develop our own media and if we all do it alone we are wasting our energy!

If different projects all create a radio stream then most of the time it will be just looping the same old tired playlist and getting tiny audiences. But if different project all concentrated on content then we all get one good stream with bigger audiences attracted by constant fresh output with daily news and events listings and info about what's going on where and what there is to get involved in.

How? The technology required to make this work all ready exists, it just needs to be brought together.

What is needed is people to commit. Talk to friends, the people and projects you are active with. Would they be interested in get involved?
Let us know. We'll organise a meeting and start the ball rolling. Do you have suggestions? Can you offer technical skills, training or equipment?
Can you donate bandwidth? Ideas for shows? Read the news? Get the software working? Create the website? Administer the mailing list?
Promote the station or rebroadcast the station?

feasible too. Not too sure about the 'training' though - the pedant in me thinks that 'skill sharing' is better.

If radio is easier to produce than video, there still tends to be a time lag, especially when being produced by volunteers with a lot more on their plate.

We need an oscailt newswire, but with separate archiving facility (for stuff done two years ago etc.).

I wish we could contact radio.indymedia.org to see if they mind the projected inundation of their site with Irish material.

On a smaller point, I think the name Indyradio Ireland is perhaps better than Real Radio because it better reflects the indymedia genesis, basis, inclusive ethos, and content crossover.

an easy way to find any audio on indymedia.ie is to put .mp3, or .wav, or whatever in the seach box. It is worth including the Comments in the search, because sometimes, that's where the audio is to be found.

An archive space'd still be nice.

allright lads

we are here in moore st, right now, building the imc-radio-moore st network- 5 of us here now, im presently in the chinese net shop space under moore st lending library- over talk is cheap (now talk cents) phone shop on corner after trader johns, the rest are in pub brainstorming

whats going on-
1- constructing a physical local pirate station- getting stuff to broadcast from the street

2- thursdays majority world will be broadcast live from the street- theme - is this the death of moore st?
(calling all those lovers of this town -The Moore Street Lending Library -S27 - O15
http://www.indymedia.ie/newswire.php?story_id=72169&search_text=moore%20st )
that will go over the net live, so in conjunction with imc-ie it will be imc-ie's live stream- we will contact all friends around planet and ask them to call us, text, email and as they call we will construct a physical picture on the street showing who is "tuning in" - this is all a further demonstration to people/ activists of the power of the tool that is community/ web radio
http://www.nearfm.ie

3- building up the online archive library of audio files, making workshops on the street to show people where to find stuff, how to listen, how to make their own, how to broaden the network

4- nightly screenings of radical films about alternative and independant media

The beauty about the new media is that you can do it yourself.

Putting together your own audio might be easier than bringing an FTAA summit to town to protest against.

Why look askance at the efforts of others?

Don’t diss the media, be the media.

Third time this month afaik.

It was off for nearly week earlier this month. I don't know how long for the second time, but It's been off since Wednesday this week.

radio4all is another option, but I think they have bandwidth problems.

archive.org is another option, but I can't get in to upload stuff there - someone else might know how. Also, thre is a 12-hour gap between submission and display on that site.

Would be nice someday if we had our own.

You have to register with archive.org if you want to upload stuff onto the site. Takes a couple of minutes. You get a 'library card' which allows you to FTP stuff there.

www.radio.indymedia.org went back on air on Dec 29th, having been off air for eight days this time. Today, it's off the air again.

I actually got a library card for archive.org in August, but can't get any further than an ftp page when I try to upload. There doesn't seem to be an active field so that you can tell it where the file is located on your computer. I've emailed them, but have heard nothing back.

Maybe, people can use radio4all, but apart from anything else, the accessibiity or easy upload of radio.indymedia, as well as its good bandwidth, would make it the best choice if it was reliable.

Maybe, IMC Ireland could try to get more space for www.indymedia.ie and make it a self-reliant and dependable multimedia source and resource.

Robbie, you need to use a program like FTP explorer to upload stuff to archive.org. It doesnt work the same way as radio.indymedia.org, which is a simple HTTP upload. Take the time (about 15 minutes) to learn about FTP and it will benefit you greatly. Its not hard to use, honestly.

Have a look at the screenshots of the program and you'll get a grasp of how FTP works.
http://www.ftpx.com/screenshot.html

video.indymedia.org also uses FTP uploads.

Black Brain Radio: billed as 'unconventional innovative radio artwork' this project by Irish artist Garrett Phelan, with Temple Bar Gallery and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, aims to explore 'the processes through which ideas or values enter into society... the listener is presented with an onslaught of regurgitated information, in this instanced reprocessed through the artist's voice, presented as a series of confusing, disjointed, sound works... an exploration into the formation of opinion'. Intriguing, what? The broadcast starts today on 89.9 FM in the greater Dublin area, and online at http://www.garrettphelan.com/now.htm, and concludes on February 17th with an open discussion exploring radio and art, when guests include the head of features at RTE Radio 1, Lorelei Harris.

Hi,

Thanks for the great audio from the Rossport 1st Anniversary solidarity
camp.

I edited the interview with Treasa and the Bitchin Kitchen crew into a
12 min piece for the IndyMedia London Radio Show and I've ripped a
fresh
mp3 of that.

radio.indymedia.org seems to be down at the moment, but let me know if

The IMC Radio Network
http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/static/radio.html

The main project of the group is the weekly Indymedia Newswire show which started in November 2002 when the group was given a slot on Resonance FM (London's only licensed art community radio station). The original slot was just half an hour was shortly increased to one hour once a week. The show has been running continuously for three years. That's an hour of content production every wednesday, week in, week out. There's no other area in the indymedia project which has such a hard deliverable content deadline every week. The show goes out every Wedensday between 1pm and 2pm local time (either 12:00-13:00 or 13:00-14:00 GMT depending on daylight saving time) and repeated at 11am on Mondays. The shows are also streamed live on the internet at the time of transmission (see http://www.resonancefm.com/audio.htm). The shows are recorded and archived.

transcripts of some audio files:
2 - "it’s a disgrace, it would make you ashamed to be an Irish citizen.", Fr. Joe McCullough
full transcript of discussion with catholic priest Fr. Joe McCullough after visiting the men night 3
on why the irish people who consider themselves "christian" have a duty to support these men, and where is Mc Dowells conscience.
length- 6.42

D - You have just come out from visiting the men, can you just tell us how they are?

Fr Joe. - Well, I was very moved by their determination and their courage, a few of them are obviously quite ill, I think seven of them have been to hospital today and come back, thankfully most of them are taking water, I just assured them as a catholic priest and a member of a missionary congregation here in Ireland that we were very much in solidarity with them, that we recognized their plea for justice. And that we hope that Mr. Mc Dowell, if he is a lawyer, and if he is a Christian, that he will show some humanity and compassion. He made a preposterous suggestion that they were just escaping trouble in Afghanistan, but who cased the trouble in Afghanistan and the situation in Afghanistan going back hundreds of years. It is ironic that there are 2 plaques in this cathedral to the British soldiers that died during the British invasion of Afghanistan. So the people in there who are fighting on their behalf, residents against racism, noticed the irony of that, but I was met with nothing but absolute warmth from these people, especially these young men, and they are very determined. So we hope now… It would make you ashamed to be an Irish citizen, we hope that the government and the dept of just will get sense, and even if there is some interim solution. 1 young man, he’s living in a hostel, not able to work, not able to study, what kind of an existence is that, would mc d like an existence like that, and then given the history of this country too, and its emigration and all that’s been happening, it’s a disgrace.

D - You’d think we’d remember having gone through what we went through.

Fr Joe. - You think we would remember that, but no we forgot because there is a preoccupation with money and wealth and that’s all that occupying even the government, and a sense of justice, of humanity, irrespective of what peoples religious beliefs are, humanity, will the justice ministers not come up and meet these people.

D - Do you think that if more Irish people come out and support these men that they can put pressure on mc d to come up and meet them?

Fr Joe. - Absolutely, if the Irish people, they have a tradition of getting behind a just cause, this is a just cause, this is a truly just cause that these people have, so we hope that the Irish people will get behind it in the name of humanity and the name of god if we are a Christian nation, if were a Christian people. Why doesn’t Mr. McDowell come and meet these people, and see their sincerity, their warmth, their cause. Even the lawyers that are acting on behalf of residents against racism have said there hasn’t been due process in relation to their appeals for asylum. So you know threes lots of injustice upon injustices, upon in, as I said it would make you ashamed to be an Irish citizen.

D - We all see how much Irish society has changed in last generation, you can see it turning into a more greedy me me country, but I’m hoping that people will come out, but do you think that they will or is it starting to split between people who support them and people who are against t them. Already we’ve had people saying "get the Taliban out" wave had young people coming up and just shouting in racist taunts at people who are here supporting the men.

Fr Joe. - I think that’s down to a degree of ignorance about the whole suggestion, I’ve seen a man here with a placard saying "throw the Taliban thugs out", but sure they are not. Number 1 they are not Taliban, number 2 they are anything but thugs, if he met these young people. Unfortunately a lot of this is driven by a section of the media that get behind the anti immigrant cause that stir it up for a minority, I’m convinced that its a minority, but you know it can be a dangerous thing too.

D - If people are made afraid I suppose you’ve seen it all the way through history and you’ve seen the results of that.

Fr Joe. - Well you know what fear can do, it can do terrible things. Sometimes it can lead to extreme violence, all this abuse and the killing of young people is what racism does.

D - going back to the men though, some of them stopped taking food and water before Sunday evening and its now Tuesday evening, and its just a few hours ago if not an hour that they started to drink water again, as Far as I know and that was a big step because without taking in the water its only 3 or 4 days before the bodily insides start to give up, they did meet with some people and they have started taking the water but still it will take time to get back to, not a normal state, but a better state, where the insides have water again, but when you were there and you saw them take water you saw that they were still definite about this, still absolutely firm in their fight to carry and to continue with this hunger strike.

Fr Joe. - Yes, I spoke with their spokesperson and he said they are absolutely determined to see it through, even though that they are taking water, and thankfully they are in small amounts, but he said they are absolutely determined, well I said that as a priest and as a Christian that I hope nobody will die and that they will come off this hunger strike. But they said that they were determined because of the cause that they have.

D - I met a lot of Afghani people in Pakistan and I saw how gentle they were, how humble they were, but also how strong they were and how firm they were, and history has shown then as being a very strong group of people.

Fr Joe. - They are very resilient.

D - If they say they are doing this, they are doing this; there is no half measures with the Afghanis.

Fr Joe. - I would accept you’d know, you’ve been and you have met them in Pakistan, I’ve been very moved by their warmth and their sincerity and id also say their resilience.

D - Ok, well thanks very much for your time and for your support for the men.

Fr Joe. - You’re very welcome, thank you very much.

Interview with member of RAR
by Margaret Sat May 20, 2006 00:15
This is the transcipt of the first half of the interview dunk did with the member of RAR who has been speaking to the men.

D: Duncan
R: RAR spokesperson

Report recorded by Dunk sometime around 8-9pm Day 6 Friday 19th May

D: Okay, so we’re outside St.Patrick’s Cathedral again, the men are still inside, it’s past 7 o’clock and it looked like there was supposed to be a raid by the police to take the men. There were reports that ten of the Afghani men were threatening to commit suicide if that happened and apparently they were ready with nooses and stuff like that. So I’m here with someone who has been in over the last few days. So can you tell us a bit about the situation at the moment, it’s now 8 or 9 o’ clock?

R: It’s now around 9 o’ clock and basically it doesn’t look like they’ll be any action to remove the men tonight and the basis for that is because it’s a Friday night and the Gardai will be doing their drunk patrol around town. We’ve heard runours from a few journalists that it’s not going to happen until some time in the morning and we’ve also heard from someone who has contacted the Gardai that it wouldn’t be until 4 o’clock in the morning. so whatever time it’s going to happen it’ll happen late at night rather than now.

D: So you’re convinced that there are going to storm and try to pull out the men?

R: Yeah, well I mean I don’t think they’ll storm..….the media have reported that the men have barricaded themselves in which is nonsense. The Gardai have had a presence since the very beginning. Basically the situation at the moment is that the men are back on thirst strike since about 6 o’clock today. At the same time they were telling us that they were saying they don’t want to talk to anyone any more, they are just preparing themselves for death. Now their state of mind is such that we really, really fear them. We believed them since the start that they were more than prepared to starve and dehydrate themselves to death. We remain even more convinced, especially considering that they’ve been on this hunger strike for 6 days, 3 of which they’ve been on a thirst strike. Their state of mind, it’s very very worrying. Their determination added to their state of mind just convinces us that there will be deaths.

D: Okay, I definitely feel that as well from talking with all the people that have come out, they’re saying that they will definitely do it. They are absolutely committed to this. The argument that we’re hearing is that the men have taken this drastic measure because they fell that if they’re sent back to Afghanistan they will face torture and then death. For people who don’t understand the background and what’s going on, can you tell us a bit about the actual process, the asylum seeking process, and what these men have gone through and how they’ve ended up taking such drastic measures?

R: Okay, to directly quote one of the men from inside, they’ve described the asylum
system as emotional and psychological torture. Most of them have not gone through the full procedures of the asylum system, what they have done, they’ve been left in limbo, they’ve held protests….

D: This is for a number of years?

R: Some of them have been here for a number of years, some are only here recently but they are all here in solidarity with each other. They are all here because they know what the situation is like in Afghanistan and they are all here because they have been brutalized by the asylum system. They have campaigned since December. They have had protests in December. They contact the Department of Justice, they’ve contacted government TDs, they’ve contacted Michael McDowell. This has been a process that has been ongoing for a quite a few months. They didn’t come to this decision on the spur of the moment. They came to this decision to go on hunger and thirst strike because they felt that they were being ignored and because they felt that they had no other choice. They are adamant that they would rather die in Ireland, in a church of God, rather go home to Afghanistan and be tortured and then killed. They are not members of the Taliban. They are not Islamic fundamentalists. The Taliban are still active fighting in Afghanistan, if they were Taliban they would be there. If they were Islamic fundamentalists they would not step inside a Christian Church. It is utter nonsense what has been put out there by some of the media. The worry is that some of their personal stories haven’t some out because the men are wary of putting their personal stories out in the media and word getting back to Afghanistan and worried that there would be repercussions for people they know, or their clan, or their local area.

18 - transcript of Rosanna, spokesperson of RAR (residents against racism) independent observer/ mediator
by iosaf Sat May 20, 2006 18:02
(transcript of Rosanna spokesperson of RAR, who has been very busy trying to defuse this situation and has now given interviews globally (including the BBC and Sky News) speaking 11h30 this morning recorded by Dunk (indymedia radio activist & a ringleader of the magical Bicycling & gardening group ).

"ok everyone, its very impressive to see all here, and I know most local people in this area, are on our side. [heckler] I know, I've heard many more local people than the man there [referring to heckler] who have come up to me, and they are on our side. I did a broadcast this morning, and two taxi drivers, who are Dublin taxi drivers that have a very bad name, were most supportive of the guys inside. And I tell you what they called Mc dowell [heckler interrupts] [rosanna resumes] what they called Mc Dowell was almost unrepeatable. But it was very very true. [hecling resumes] The two guys were very very good. I'd like to say one other thing - which hasn't been said - We keep being told - We keep hearing - that the system in Ireland is a fair system. The system in Ireland is unfair! Recently two lawyers who were on the appeals tribunal taht refugees have to go through resigned! Because they know its unfair. [heckles] They said it is totally unfair. These are not Residents against Racism [[[ http://www.residentsagainstracism.org ]]] These are government lawyers. [heckles] & they've resigned.
Did that make any difference? Did that Mc Dowell look at it? Did he sack the one lawyer James Nicholson who has never let any asylum seeker stay on appeal?
- No! He did nothing. He is a shame on Ireland, a shame on all of us. Let's get rid of Mc dowell! "

a few points on how the global networks that we are part of ARE changing the world

presently some of us are working on a project that is in initial stages here:
Cities, radical urbanism, sqatting, social centres
http://radio.indymedia.org/news/2006/09/11489.php

"At the moment there is an ever growing radical network of autonomous spaces and ways of living that are about inclusivity, action for improved living conditions, DIY, self organisation and more: social centres, squatted villages, squatted city industrial space turned into organic food gardens, radical radio centres, reclaimed streets.......
We are wondering whether these ideas will be discussed in Venice (architectural biennelle - "Cities, Architecture and Society" ), there was no mention at the london exhibiton ( Future city: experiment and utopia in architecture 1956 - 2006 ). For a long time there has been walls put up against this "alternative" world but perhaps now it is getting to the time when the "architectural" world will have to listen to this new world of autonomous spaces and living, for many the "architectural" world has become sterile and lifeless, perhaps now it will have to be seriously confronted, perhaps Venice will be the meeting ground. "

related audio, film and essays:

How do we win?
Micheal Albert, founder of Zmag ( http://www.zmag.org/ ) talks about the "The Stickiness Problem" (http://www.zmag.org//ZMag/articles/jan98albert.htm )
in which he points out that many people have come and gone from the movement, why is this, how can it be remedied and what that might lead to. I feel we have a lot to learn from this and over the past year have made massive strides in creating spaces, acts, events, systems to allow us to get "stickier"

heres 2 audio files which sum it up (much thanks to Redjade for assistance)
Whats wrong with the left - its not sticky
http://radio.indymedia.org/uploads/lifeaftercapitalism_...1.mp3 2.16 mins
making the movement Sticky - how to do it
http://radio.indymedia.org/uploads/lifeaftercapitalism_...2.mp3
these are audio cuts from the "Life After Capitalism" that was referred to earlier (http://radio.indymedia.org/news/2004/08/2286.php )

Having hope in this strange time
I'd just like to point out that it is a very special time, strange things are happening, it might seem a bit shit here in Ireland at present (that is untill this great verdict finally happened) but remember what else is going on in the world and have HOPE that we will win, and more than that, a BELIEF that we can win as opposed to just fighting the good fight (which is another of Micheal Alberts points, loosely referred to here http://www.indymedia.ie/newswire.php?story_id=68510#com...00759 )

Strange things are going on in Latin America, perhaps the next place for a spark to ignite could be Ireland?
recently the SWP organised for Roland Denis, Venezuelan activist and former member of Chavez Government, to come and talk in Ireland. ( http://www.indymedia.ie/article/76827 ) He talked about the revolution but also its power lying in the social movements he is part of and maybe we are part of (in the global family sense). It seems to be a lot more sticky over there....
anyway in an audio from democracy now the following day Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said: "From here, I say to the North American empire that instead of thinking about a transition plan for the Cuban revolution or for the Venezuelan revolution, they should be elaborating on a transition plan for themselves because this century the North American empire is going to end." ( http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=06/07/13/1420259 )

November 30th 1999 changed the face of the political landscape forever.
But then, the anarchist century has only just begun.

i'd just like to make a pointer to N30, which was the day the WTO got shut down by civil society in Seattle, the battle of Seattle (even though nearly all the violence came from the US state). This time saw creative ways of blockading, new ways of organising and acting, new ways of communicating; this was when the indymedia phenomen came into being:

"November 30th 1999 changed the face of the political landscape forever" is a line from Fritjof Capra's (co-creator of the centre for eco literacy http://www.ecoliteracy.org/ ) book the hidden connections.
http://www.terebess.hu/english/capra2.html
and "But then, the anarchist century has only just begun." is from this essay "Anarchism, Or The Revolutionary Movement Of The Twenty-first Century" ( http://www.zmag.org/content/showarticle.cfm?ItemID=4796 )
by David Graeber who you can listen to talking about his views here on radio4all: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php?op=program-info&prog...nav=&

so bottom line : it could be a strange few weeks, you never know what way things could turn. 1 sure thing though; if things keep going as they are at present, life ends for our species. therefor there is a huge onus on us to take action, and if that brings some meaning and pleasure in this life, great......

again, deep thanks to all 5 of the Pitstop Ploughshares for giving us all HOPE again - http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77460#comment161140

greetings from beautiful busy barcelona, the clowns home has been destroyed.
¿but who knows what that might lead to?
perhaps the following...

ADAPTION
"adjusting to dramatic shifts in society"
or the unfolding story of the ecological spiritual revolution,
¿from Eire to New York to Sarajevo to India to Vis to Banja Luka to Frilande to la Condition Publique to Venice to Barcelona to ...?

EASA 2008 - Ireland + pirate hijacking of Venice architectural bienalle 2008

"Old Irish folklore associates the past with the West, while the future lies in the east. In the vernacular architecture of the countryside, houses turned their back to the west and face east towards the bright future, the rising sun."
EASA 2008 - Ireland - http://easa.antville.org/stories/1503637/

ADAPTION intro...
"adjusting to dramatic shifts in society"
id propose the argument that finding how to live sustainably is what matters, and from finding out the theory, putting it into practice. difficult, yes. possible, yes

hijack growing idea...
we are talking about the ecological spiritual revolution which has been underway for some while, and came from a lovely discussion in metavilla with Lucien Kroll and our Cuban pirate friends
Lucien Kroll: Moments D`Architectures
http://easa.antville.org/stories/1488710/

from that 2 things are the arguments that make up this pleasent story;
1 - the paradigm shift in society that fritjof capra mentioned
http://www.ecotecture.com/library_eco/interviews/capra1....html
(see west to east thinking as base of shift in terms of revolutionary change in worldview, thesis of his book tao of physics - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tao-Physics-Exploration-Paralle...25190 )
2 - "the signifigance of the global ecovillage movement", an essay by Ted Turner from EUROTOPIA, directory of intentional communities
http://socialwork.arts.unsw.edu.au/tsw/D09TheSigOfTheGE....html

from reading and researching these intros, we will take you to the second part of the project:
2007, a year of ecological spiritual revolution
joining 2 bits to the equation:
1- 50 years on from Vinoba Bhave´s (Mahatma Gandhi´s successor) proclamation
"let the year 1957 be the year of revolution (a pacifist, sustainable, poverty aleviating one)
http://www.rmaf.org.ph/Awardees/Biography/BiographyBhav...n.htm
2- 1936 and the year of the successfull anarchist revolution in the city of Barcelona:
Anarchism in Spain (wiki) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchism_in_Spain
The Spanish Revolution (1936) http://struggle.ws/spaindx.html

who knows what next year will lead to...
presently there are circus occupations of Barcelona´s main square and the tearing down of squatted social centre circus and theatres:
La Makabra is being evicted!
http://barcelona.indymedia.org/feature/display/282443/i...x.php
Barcelona: 3 early morning raids on 3 squats, including MAKABRA
http://indymedia.ie/article/79776

2008 - irish EASA and global pirate hijacking of Venice Architectural Bienalle

pirate hijacking of Venice Architectural Bienalle, plans underway and preparions being built in the pirate university which is presently based out of Barcelona, but soon to be expanded through the harambee project:

Pirate University (barcelona, but sure to quickly spread)
http://www.universitatpirata.org

HARAMBEE : widening the discussion
http://www.indymedia.ie/article/78360
GLOBAL RADIO NODES ON WSF:
http://wiki.radiolivre.org/Main/GLOBALRADIONODESONWSF
building up the RADICAL radio network
http://indymedia.ie/article/71892

this is just to get things going, we have not had time yet to edit and make more clear concise and easy to understand, we hope you can sift through the ideas and links, like the idea and help us, as changing the world does require a fair amount of donkey work, but it pays off: "le pur plaisur d´exister"....
so if you want to help us to...

radically change the world

so your babies babies babies....
have somewhere safe, beatiful, healthy, enjoyable to live.
please hop onboard the idea and plug into the network...

like all these projects it is an open system, so all are welcome to participate and enjoy...

over and out, back now to the streets

Continual work to develop IMC and related projects...

Firslty,
A group of people interested in translating films from english to spanish, and vice versa, is being set up. mainly in Dublin and Barcelona, but also with a few other people through their digital networks, wherever they are...

Anyway, initial WIKI set up, give us a shout if your interested in collaborating. http://film-translation.wikispaces.com/

2nd project in pipeline is related to: COP15, live radio project(s), zero carbon world concert(s) for a zero carbon world

More on that, as we organise things a bit better, heres a little bit behind it;

In regard to the Zero Carbon Caravan and related ideas in lead up to COP15 which might be one of the most important times for our human story. its mailed to caravan idea creator chris from CAT (centre of alternative technology) in Wales.

regarding the stereo world zero carbon gig: YES YES YES.
multi stereo events in physical world, all connected together in 1 global interconnected network, is for me, THE KEY TO CHANGING THE WORLD!. ive previously experimented and created spaces (in that mix of local here, global everywhere via web radio stream etc)
2 experiments:
Indymedia radio support for WSF 2007 from Kenya (world social forum, 3 way radio show focusing on theme of "housing")
"Streaming from the gaff" (4 min documentary of Indymedia Ireland's first live stream for "future of digital media" forum in dublin 2005)

finishing off id like to bring it back again to urbanism and another song, perhaps the second last: the model urban city, re sustainable design, is for me, and many more: Curitiba, in South Brazil, its success is due to the then mayor and architect Jaime Lerner. hes says "cities are not the problem, they are the solution. Each city can be sorted in 3 years" he proscribes urban acupuncture and smart systems thinking. He finishes off many of his talks requesting the "audience" to help him sing the Sustainability song, see it here at end of his TED talk.

I feel things are growing, i feel we will get there, i have HOPE that this is the case, its what drives me!

I think the key for us, is that we have a road map, a design idea that we feel works and from that we work toward getting there, so there in full agreement of critical things like CAT´s ZERO CARBON BRITAIN,

Anyway, keep it up, let me know more about how you feel about the project, are people starting to roll into the idea, what problems to you see, how do we get around them, what about tek end?? id suggest hooking up with hamish and richard who ran climate tv last year at climate camp, they were / are still part of the undercurrents vid activist network. the indymedia network, i think, will play critical role in the global network side of thing, im connected a bit there, but im far from a tekky, but ive mates who will support. also i think the key will be the radio side of things, getting as many stations around planet to tune into and play our transmissions, either live or archived, this is the type of project which can go viral, ie, explode, once the basic structure is there, its simple and it works, once one can click and participate, more can and will, this amplifies the whole thing... in time (still a few years away) it will be the norm!

Regarding radio network, id suggest the AMARC ( World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters) network too, at the G8 in scotland 05, we did live radio project with them from edinburgh direct to african communities. Id also suggest looking at the very successful INDYMEDIA tv network from g8 at germany in 06: G8-TV
