Agenda 29-07-10

back to agenda and minutes overview

  • Laura wants to do interviews for a documentary about Indymedia – she emailed saying she’ll come on the 5th.
    (that doesn’t seem like it’s happening tonight, then? – gdm)
    (well, we might want to talk about whether people are generally interested. If noone is, she doesn’t need to bother. So how about giving an interview gdm?)
  • Proposal to adopt Bristol’s respect guideline:
    Respect: Bristol indymedia is intended to represent the world we are striving to create, rather than the world we live in. A cornerstone of this principle is respect for others, therefore articles or comments that are abusive rather than relying on force of argument are not acceptable.

    (i like that – gdm)
