This is a collection of some of the basic documents which describe Indymedia Ireland and how we work
The Independent Media Centre Network is a network of collectively run media outlets for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of the truth. We work out of a love and inspiration for people who continue to work for a better world, despite corporate media's distortions and unwillingness to cover the efforts to free humanity.
Indymedia Ireland is built on the foundation of an open and democratic newswire. We want to see and hear real stories, news, and opinions from users of the site around the country. Anybody can post a story, or a comment on a story to Indymedia. While we struggle to maintain the newswire as a completely open forum we do monitor it and remove posts.
The Indymedia Ireland does not normally retain server logs of activity on the website. In special cases, where persistent patterns of abuse are noticed, we may decide to use the logs to identify the source of the abuse. The information in these logs is not shared with any other body and is not used for any other purposes other than ensuring the secure functioning of the site.
Content (text, image, audio, or video) posted to this web site is owned by its author. Unless otherwise stated by the author, all content is free for non-commercial reuse, reprint, and rebroadcast, on the net and elsewhere. Opinions are those of the people contributing to the site and are not necessarily endorsed by Indymedia Ireland.
The Indymedia Ireland website is run in an open and free atmosphere. We welcome participation and contributions from everyone who feels they have something constructive to add. You don't have to be a member to post to the newswire or to contribute articles. The website is managed by a volunteer collective who collaborate on mailing lists and have face to face meetings as the need arises. Membership of the collective is open to all.
Indymedia is a not-for-profit news site that accepts no advertising or commercial support whatsoever. We rely entirely on volunteer labour to keep the site going and donations from users to pay our hosting charges - which are relatively high because of the high level of bandwidth used. For instance in Jan 2012, this was over 25GB a day. If we want to keep on growing we need the community to help out and for users to donate a few euros towards the bills.
The Indymedia Ireland newswire works on the principle of Open Publishing, an essential element of the Indymedia project that allows anyone to instantaneously self-publish their work on a globally accessible web site. The Indymedia newswire encourages people to become the media by posting their articles, analysis, and photographs directly to the web site. You can publish to the newswire by clicking the "publish" link and following the easy instructions.
