Open a Free Internet Cafe and Free Software Lab in Edinburgh!

Come learn about and help us realise the potential of the new Indymedia Centre in the City Centre of Edinburgh. These two rooms below the Forest Cafe can be used as a large free internet cafe,a space for education, for demonstrating free software, a place for media-making facilities, and more!
The Indymedia Centre from the G8 protests lives on! We need your vision and help to get the space working and ready-to-go.

Movies 5:00-7:30pm in Forest Cafe.

1)Revolution OS:
This film covers the world of hackers like Richard Stallman that created the free GNU/Linux operating system, Firefox, Open Office,
and beyond: the free alternative to Microsoft.

2)G8 2005 Scotland Indymedia Footage:
The latest edits from the Indymedia Network: The G8 failed to deliver massive debt relief or halt climate change, and people converged on Scotland in protest and to demonstrate alternatives.

Meeting 7:30-9:30 in the Church Hall above Forest Cafe, followed by a tour of the new space downstairs.
