... to all the people and groups who joined forces to throw an indymedia party last saturday. It was the best birthday present ever - and the funds go towards our new server. Thanks to Everybody and see you at the next party! Report & pics [1 | 2]
Fun-Da-Mental, Rhythms of Resistance, The Rub, Penny Rimbaud, The Unpeople, The Internationalz, Angel played for free - wasn't there another band? Big thumbs up for peace-not-war, who organised the lineup. Some pieces were even special indymedia songs - thanks! RampArt people helped setting up, and preparing. The crowd from St. Georges Church gave us the most amazing venue, an ex-church turned theatre turned party venue. They cooked great food, looked after security and logistics, lighting and stage, helped clearing up, and were generally very good humoured while working at the party. Lots of people turned up, some waited patiently for up to 45 minutes in the queue outside, and due to confusion at the door, Rhythms of Resistance even paid to get in - that's more solidarity than expected! Indymedia people from cambridge, london, lancaster (more?) helped running the party, but we couldn't have done it without everybody else. Many encouraged indymedia to carry on - well with the new server we certainly will. Thanks again!
