NO NEW ROUND RADIO - ((i))ndymedia - Greenpeace collaboration
06 Nov 2001
NO NEW ROUND RADIO - 9 November 2001 starting from 15:00 GMT distributed independent radio coverage on WTO
A global coordinated distributed effort to cover no-wto actions and countersummits, where any free independent media can join in taking up part of the 24 hour programming.
This is the only independent broadcast platform covering the WTO conference, which is quite possibly a defining meeting between the west, the developing world and Islam. The anti-globalisation movement has never had a voice in the area, so this is an important opportunity to build up relations with the arab world. We hope the IMC network makes the most of this and we make true progress in being a true global independent news media network. Indymedia really does go where no other news agency will go and thus brings a voice to the unheard, the dispossessed and from all corners of the planet.
With the help of Indymedia, Greenpeace intends to put on the web at least 1 hour of English programming a day during the WTO meeting, also Arabic programming is being planned. The origin of those broadcasts will be the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior, as it is docked in Doha, Qatar during the 4th Ministerial meeting of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
We invite any Indymedia Center to help cover on the global site as well as on their local sites the events happening in their locations from nov 9th to nov 13th. Phone lines will be soon set up to receive incoming calls from all over the world to report on the various actions: there will be the possibility to upload audio features on mirrored ftp sites so that anybody partecipating can share the content produced and radios can transmit it in any form.
We hope that the coordination will grow to include another communication means and as much people as possible: it's a big experiment and it could spawn the idea of keeping this distributed audio project.
Coordination will take place on
www-features (at) lists.indymedia.org
imc-audio (at) lists.indymedia.org
mp3 stream mountpoints on:
(and eventually more, check radio.indymedia.org for updates)
if you want to collaborate please contact the tech staff: or come on irc to coordinate ASAP.
if you can offer a webserver mirroring audiofile features (approx 50Mb space needed) please let us know! a list of links where to download and scheduled programming will be updated on
http://radio.indymedia.org and http://tazebao.dyne.org pages.
when this all starts:
9th november 15:00 GMT
coordination is allready going on IRC
going on until 13th november.
