What is Anarchomedia - Anarchomedia provides a common, interactive platform
for anarchists in Ireland to post reports and to
facilitate publication from anarchos who don't have
the ability to publish themselves, e.g. without the
necessary skills/time for websites, the copier access
for newsletters, or the collective strength of
organisation on the struggle towards an anarchist
society and against the current forms of oppression;
capitalism, gender isolation, racism and environmental
degredation. Not to concentrate solely on the
negative, Anarchomedia also carries reports on what is
being done by anarchists and ordinary people to bring
an end to this system of exploitation. Reports on
Anarchomedia cover a wide range of issues and topics –
from community organising to international
mobilisations against capital, from anti-war activism
to environmental activism.

The Workings of Anarchomedia

The content on Anarchomedia is created by a collective
going under the guise of the Anarchomedia Collective.
Unlike Indymedia, Anarchomedia does not operate an
“open publishing” newswire but a moderated newswire
where the content is posted by the collective of
editors. While not wanting to be critical of the
concept of “open publishing” we want a media where a
certain level of reporting can always be expected by
our readers. By having a closed newswire we can also
effectively rule out the presence of trolls and
spamming of the newswire. Readers can post comments on
the articles posted to the site allowing for open
debate on the newswire.

Other Services

Anarchomedia also offers other services to the
anarchist & activist community in Ireland. As well as
anarchist news, Anarchomedia features forums to move
debate from the newswire. The forums exist to allow
for debate between anarchists and anyone else who
wishes to visit the site. Find these at:

http://anarchomedia.myikonboard.com/viewboard.php

The newswire also features notifications for upcoming
events. Organisers of events should contact the
collective and we will publicise the event on the
site.

While all of the above are now ready for visitors and
participation (only a few articles are online at the
moment, be patient more will come) we are now working
on putting together several sections that will have an
abundance of information on anarchism and the
anarchist scene in Ireland. Anarchomedia will supply
its visitors with a directory of publications by
anarchists/anti-authoritarian individuals or groups, a
list of active anarchist/anti-authoritarian/grassroots
groups, an introduction to anarchism and information
on book shops and autonomous/radical zone’s around the
island.

Getting Involved

Anarchomedia needs more editors as we don’t yet have a
full house. If you think you have what it takes to be
an anarchomedia editor and agree to the editorial
policy then email us, tell us all about yourself, who
you are, where you’re from, why you wanna get
involved, organisations, groups or campaigns your
involved in and whatever else you can think we might
need/want to know.
It is important that as many anarchists as possible
(either those living in Ireland, or interested in
Irish anarchism) get involved with the day to day
upkeep of the site. If you use the site, then try and
lend a hand in maintaining it.


If you’re interested, here’s a little bit of info on
the collective:


- The Anarchomedia collective work on a
non-hierarchical basis.

- We reject all systems of domination and
discrimination and come from varying anarchist
tendencies (and no problems!).

- Anarchomedia has been given it’s webspace by
comrades in the Anarchist Federation but remains
independent from that and any other organisations

- We understand that by lobbying there will be no
radical change. As a collective our attitude is
assertive, and where necessary confrontational.

- Recruit, recruit, and recruit!!!

- In order to join the collective you must either meet
with one of the members of the collective in your area
or know one of us.
