| About Indymedia and the Independent Media Centers                |
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Indymedia is a collective of independent media organizations and
hundreds of journalists offering grassroots, non-corporate coverage.
Indymedia is a democratic media outlet for the creation of radical,
accurate, and passionate tellings of truth.

You can find out more about getting involved at the following websites
process.indymedia.org - lists.indymedia.org - global.indymedia.org.au

Although each IMC has it's own mission statement, many are modeled
after the Seattle IMC. As of yet there is no overarching mission
statement for all IMC's or the indymedia network.

The Seattle Independent Media Center Mission:
 The Independent Media Center is a grassroots organization committed
 to using media production and distribution as a tool for promoting
 social and economic justice. It is our goal to further the
 self-determination of people under-represented in media production
 and content, and to illuminate and analyse local and global issues
 that impact ecosystems, communities and individuals. We seek to
 generate alternatives to the biases inherent in the corporate media
 controlled by profit, and to identify and create positive models
 for a sustainable and equitable society.
