Asheville Indymedia has just gone global this week and it's really off to a respectable beginning. The time is overdue for Asheville to have a global voice, (of which there are over 170 autonomous local collectives all around the world) and this is one way to do that.
Anyone can post news to the AIMC website, including text, photos, audio, and video. News appears on the open publishing newswire on the right side of the website. The AIMC editorial working group decides what news is important and pressing enough to deserve to be featured in the center-column and what news needs to be hidden or deleted, all the while keeping the Editorial Guidelines in mind, which are posted on the website and decided on democratically by the AIMC collective.
Asheville Indymedia is truly independent. No corporation owns AIMC, no government manages the organization, no single donor finances the project. AIMC is not the mouthpiece of any political party or organization. People involved with Indymedia have a wide variety of political and personal viewpoints.
