Indymedia Local Reporting Workshop Friday 5/13 7pm
11 May 2005
Indymedia will be hosting free local reporting workshops every second and fourth Friday this summer at our Chinatown office.

The first informal class/workshop will be this Friday from 7 to 9pm.

Our office is at
33 Harrison Ave.
4th Floor
in the UNITEhere building.

(at the intersection of Harrison and Beach near the Chinatown, Downtown Crossing and Boylston T stops, right in the middle of Chinatown.)

Folks should bring a recent sample of their writing if they have one, just so we can get an idea of where people are starting.

We will discuss some ideas and maybe do a short writing exercise, the class will have some structure but open to change.

There will also be a handout for folks to read for our next workshop about newsthinking...

Whatever your level of experience these workshops should be fun and productive. In future meetings we can critique each others stories, find out about writer's resources, have visits from working activist/journalists, and challenge each other with speedy assignments.

Our Man in Karachi...
11 May 2005
He didn't seem to care. And I never saw him again, this servant of the vultures and jackals. A man who like his brutal bosses 'knew too much to be good for mankind'. That's why I'll never forget 'the Karachi-man'.

Truth and Demagoguery: Churchill's Erroneous View of the Iraq Sanctions
10 May 2005
The author of a courteous Churchill critique was urged to "read Churchill", as though, as a former student at CU Boulder, he wasn't already a result, Jeremy now has a renewed distaste for Churchill and his impact on the left, finding him, to be blunt, nothing short than a historical revisionist of the worst sort. This article focuses on wild claims made in the notorious 911 essay, and discovers them to be utter fabrications couched in terms which are, to again be blunt, are little short
