WMass Indymedia Comes Out! (english)
03 Feb 2003
Modified: 05:31:06 PM
You are invited to come and learn about Indymedia, meet the WMass Indymedia team, and become involved on any level. Don't trust the media? BECOME the media!!
With its newswire and features section already up and running, the Western Mass. Independent Media Center (IMC), or WMass Indymedia, is preparing to make its debut in the media mix of the region. With that in mind, on Saturday, February 22, from 2pm to 4 at Amherst Community TV, 246 College Street, Amherst, there will be an Open House for the IMC. The event is planned as a sort of coming out party with refreshments AND a refreshing take on the media.

Indymedia is a dynamic, democratic, voluntary interactive news group with websites around the world. The Western Mass IMC (http://www.wmass.indymedia.org) is an excellent resource for delving into the issues of the day. The IMC promotes social, economic, and environmental justice by providing a local forum for people to publish writing, photos, audio, video, and art traditionally marginalized by corporate media. They are guided by the Principles of Unity set forth by the Global IMC and by a sense of social responsibility. The Wmass IMC has the following goals:

* Report grassroots events, issues and culture from a people's perspective AND IN AN TRUTHFUL, ACCURATE AND BALANCED MANNER.

* Provide media production resources to members of the Western Mass. community who are disenfranchised from corporate media.

* Educate and inform the public about local and global news via the wmass.indymedia.org website, radio, and a print publication.

* Form alliances with other local media outlets who also seek to break the information bottleneck of corporate media.

You are invited to come and learn about Indymedia, meet the WMass Indymedia team, and become involved on any level. Don't trust the media? BECOME the media!!
