====================================================================

So, you are ready to make your own news. That's great. Publishing on Indymedia is easy, just select the appropriate publishing form below (you do not need to create an account to publish your reports).

If you are new here, check out welcome to IMC London and the different functions of our website.

You can also create an account which will allow you to edit your articles later on. Also, if you're involved in a group or campaign, you can make your own group page (for more on groups see here).

If your article is a fascinating read, it will be promoted, but any commercial, abusive or discriminatory content will be hidden - check the editorial guidelines and mission statement to find out more.

The London Indymedia site has a local focus, if you want to publish something that is not related to London, you can do that on Be The Media site, an UK-wide aggregator of independent and radical media.

Publishing forms:

  • Link to other media (repost a link highlighting good content elsewhere on the web)
  • Publish an event (an announcement of something that has not yet happened)
  • Publish an article (an original report about something that has happened, can include photos, audio etc)
  • Publish a video
  • Mobile Publishing:  there's also mobile friendly version of the website here with details of mobile publishing here.

When writing an article, remember the importance of explaining the "Who, what, when, where, why?" - other people might not know about your struggle or the subject you are talking about. Run a spellcheck and include links so people can find out more about the context of your issue. For a more detailed tutorial on publishing see here.

And please help with the moderation by using the "report or edit this article" link at the bottom of each posting, if you think it should be promoted or hidden.

Security Note (updated 2 June 2011 ) :

When following one of the links to an encrypted connection, you might get a Security Warning, especially if you are using Firefox 3.0.

Security Certificates are the digital equivalent of a government issued identification card. Certificates, however, are usually issued by private corporations called certificate authorities (CA), which charge 200 £ a year for these certificates. Until 2 June 2011, we used a CAcert signed certificate, due to some technical difficulties since 2 June 2011, we are currently forced to use a "self-signed" certificate.
