NYC Indymedia is not reporting news.

NYC Indymedia is manipulating "news" reports to suit its own agenda. NYC-IMC is also currentlyinvolved in hiding and deleting stories and pictures to protect "activists"
I do not know if the story about the burning of the Dragon in NY is of interest any more. Old news is not news.

However, it would be nice if at least one "Indypendant" news outlet would try to report a follow up and the real story.

The Dragon did a "Challenger"

It caught fire when one of the solid fuel boosters in the nose ignited the main structure.

The photographic evidence was on the thread
Which is now not just hidden but DELETED.

Will Boston IMC investigate the story?

Will Boston IMC report what really happened?

Will Boston IMC clear the Black Bloc, The cops, The Protest Warriors and every one else except the owner and the creator of "The Dragon" (the guy who was caught on the video (running away, dressed in black and on a cell phone looking worried) that NYC-IMC deleted the references to....

Even in Russia, after a few days, they told the truth about the Kursk.....

Can IMC?

As someone who was there,

It was clear to me that whatever was happening, the impromptu black bloc was trying to hide. The banners flanked the dragon, everyone with a camera was confronted with shouts of "no cameras!" and a black umbrella to shield what was happening (I shut off my camera, as an indymedia fellow respecting the rights of activists)... with the banners in place, it was impossible to see what was happening behind the dragon, and then ~3 minutes later it burned down.

Maybe they thought it was necessary to hide the prepration of the solid fuel boosters for the smoke blowing, or maybe they knew it was going to burn down.
