Aotearoa Indymedia is this country’s leading anarchist/socialist media forum. It is part of an international network of similar websites used to network radical activity and support networks.
The recent police roundup of suspected “terrorists“, mainly anarchists and/or Maori radicals has hit Aotearoa Indymedia hard.
Asher Goldman seems to be holding the fort alone.
Aotearoa Indymedia aims to be a space where people feel inspired to read, write and comment on news and events happening across Aotearoa (and the rest of the world). In order to fulfill this aim, the Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective is empowered to enact the Editorial Policy…
Prior to the Police raids of October 15th, the editorial collective had three main editors – all had been editing for some time and so were experienced with what needs to be done. These three did much of the work on Aotearoa Indymedia…
During the raids, two out of those three editors were arrested, and both are currently being held in Auckland Central Remand Prison. As the only one of those three left, I have endeavoured (with help!) to keep Aotearoa Indymedia as up to date as possible with information on the raids and protests, but there are limits to how much an increasingly small collective can do.
Now, perhaps more than ever since Aotearoa Indymedia began, we need your help. If you are interested in taking an active role in the Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective, then please….
Asher, (Aotearoa Indymedia Editorial Collective)
