Indy Media's Hardware is Returned, but Many Questions Remain
imclogo2.gifOn Wednesday, October 13th, Indymedia's seized hardware was mysteriously returned in the same way it disappeared -- without any information provided as to who took it or why, and on whose orders. An employee at Rackspace, the U.S.-based web hosting company that handed over Indymedia's disks to the U.S. government on 7 October, emailed an Indymedia volunteer to say that the disks were returned and that "the court order is being complied with... I will pass along any more information that becomes available and that I am allowed to."

Indymedia to U.S., U.K., Swiss and Italian Authorities: "Hands Off Our Websites!"
imclogo2.gifEvidence is beginning to mount that the authorities of at least four countries (Switzerland, Italy, U.K. and U.S.A.) are involved in last week's seizure of two of Indymedia's servers that brought down more than 20 of the Indymedia network's web sites and several internet radio streams. Indymedia has yet to receive any official statement or information about what the order entailed or why it was issued.

An FBI spokesperson, Joe Parris, confirmed to Agence France-Presse that the FBI issued a subpoena to the provider who hosted the Indymedia servers in the U.K., but that it was "on behalf of a third country." (1) Daniel Zapelli, senior federal prosecutor for Geneva (Switzerland), confirmed that he has opened a criminal investigation into Indymedia coverage of the 2003 G8 Summit in Evian. (2) Zapelli will provide details of that investigation at a press conference on Tuesday.

FBI Seizes IMC Servers in the UK, Including the Host for Western Mass
imclogo2.gifUS authorities issued a federal order to Rackspace's office in the US ordering them to provide Indymedia's hardware located in London to the requesting agency.

Interview with Tad Hirsch of MIT and TxtMob.com
Long before the Republican National Committee convention descended upon New York City, plans were in place for massive protests, the largest culminating in a gathering of 500,000 protesters from around the nation on the Sunday prior. But with little major media coverage beyond analysis of traffic snarls, participants relied mostly on a network of web sites, e-mails, and a SMS service called TxtMob to get the information they needed to prepare.

Despite a long list of organized and permitted protests, and because of the major surveillance initiatives rolled out by the NYPD and Secret Service, protesters needed a more fluid, decentralized way to coordinate activities, particularly on Tuesday’s planned day of direct action and civil disobedience. By all accounts, TxtMob delivered.

Come build a community radio station in Portsmouth!
During the weekend of September 10th-12th, hundreds of community radio organizers from New England, and all over the world, will gather together to bring a brand new community radio station to the air, as the Prometheus Radio Project partners with Portsmouth Community Radio for its sixth Radio Barnraising!

As volunteer technicians build everything from the studio to the tower, producers, engineers, and organizers from all over the United States and Canada will teach dozens of workshops on everything from how to record and edit a news show, to how to navigate the intricacies of FCC regulations. Earlier radio barnraisings have been with civil rights groups, farmworkers organizations, environmental groups, Native American tribes, and community groups.

Communal Bikes During the DNC
anarcho-bike.gifhttp://blackteasociety.org/bikes.php

Imagine streets clogged with traffic, unending train delays, parts of our city under martial law, and random ID checks and searches by police on public transportation. This is the city we'll be living in during the week of the Democratic National Convention and Mayor Menino along with DNC organizers are making no qualms about it. It's obvious that we won't be able to rely on public transportation or cars to get around during the DNC. Those who do ride public transport will face random bag searches and ID checkpoints.

There is an alternative though, Biking. Biking is fast, fun, and environmentally friendly. For these reasons we will be collecting and fixing up bikes to be used during the DNC by activists, medics, food providers, and Bostonians who just need to get around. This is a call to everyone from bike mechanics to hobbyists, from folks who have a bike they'd like to get rid of to people with a dozen to help us create a communal bike system for use during the DNC. This will include bikes with carts for available for medics, media, and food. The bikes will be available at the convergence center for anyone to use. After the convention the bikes will be donated to local bike programs.

BOSTON MEDICAL CENTER THREATENS UNIONS
regarding Feb 26, 12-1pm, BioDefense Lab Forum
It is CLEAR from Mr. Gorman's chilling letter threatening the Boston Medical Center unions, that free discussion of this issue without intimidation is not something BMC administration wants to see happen. Gorman's letter seems to indicate that free discussion by employees at BMC on this issue is something certain Boston Medical Center administrators are willing to stiffle by any means necessary .

Welcome to our new website

To better introduce you to the new website, we review the new additions and changes to boston.indymedia.org…
