Dear all, FYI. Best, Ingrid.


Biotech Independent Media Centre is an issue based Indymedia site
dedicated to biotechnology and genetic engineering in agriculture, food,
medicine as well as its relevance to globalisation. It is about
struggles everywhere against the commodification of life, and about

Our aim is to connect activists and IMCs, as well as concerned groups
and individuals from around the world by learning about one another and
our actions. This specialised site is a tool for creating, covering,
spreading and highlighting IMC content from all over the world, both
from different Indymedia newswires and by open publishing.=20

Indymedia Biotech is set up by a group of volunteers from different
continents working on biotech issues, many of whom are also Indymedia
activists of local IMCs. We are committed to a multilingual site to
break through language barriers that keep local actions restricted to
local languages, or that exclude people that don't speak and write the
main language of a global website.=20

We are part of the Indymedia network and therefore share Indymedia's
principles of Open Publishing, and of horizontality, openness and
consensus as the basis of our work. We work out of a love and
inspiration for people who continue to work for a better world, despite
corporate media's distortions and unwillingness to report the efforts to
create autonomous and sustainable futures.=20
