The opening presentation came from...well...me, and I gave a brief outline of what Indymedia is all about, where it's come from and hopefully where it's going.
The Liverpool IMC team then threw the meeting open to the twenty or so people who'd come along, so they could ask questions, get some advice, or even try putting their own stuff up. Very well done Margaret McAdam for becoming a journalist, and exposing the horrific treatment a woman called Beatrice Ketcha Guessie is getting at the hands of the UK government.
We always need more stories for Indymedia, and you've often got news that isn't represented in the corporate media. So click here and let's get going. Don't hate the media, be the media!
