What is the Indymedia Newswire?

The Indymedia Ireland newswire works on the principle of Open Publishing, an essential element of the Indymedia project that allows anyone to instantaneously self-publish their work on a globally accessible web site. The Indymedia newswire encourages people to become the media by posting their articles, analysis, and photographs directly to the web site. You can publish to the newswire by clicking the "publish" link and following the easy instructions.

Indymedia relies on the people who post to the Indymedia newswire to present their information in a thorough, honest, accurate manner. While Indymedia reserves the right to develop sections of the site that provide edited articles, there is no designated Indymedia editorial collective that edits articles posted to the newswire. At any given time several editors keep track of what is being posted and apply basic editorial guidelines to keep the newswire free of spam and duplicate postings.

You can find the current Indymedia editorial guidelines at the top of the page you reach after clicking the "publish" link. All stories and comments removed from the the newswire are posted to a mailing list which which anyone can join to discuss deletions and ask for their reinstatement.

If you disagree with the content of a particular article that someone has posted on Indymedia, you may comment on the article through the "add your comments" link at the bottom of each post.
