Speaking as someone who waits with baited breath for the latest issue of Schnews to appear to give me anarchically comical insight from the back streets of be- right- on...
And speaking as someone who also clicks on indymedia.uk.org to get the latest hot from the streets reportage coming from legions of activist-journalists “being the Media” at the latests heroic attempt to crash the towers of Mammon........
I was slightly perplexed by the bizarre genetic merging of Indymedia and Schnews to create the bastard of offspring Frankenstein know as.......
So what's going on?
Today is a huge blockade of awe Aldermarston which is mentioned in the “up coming coverage section” and last week was the police assault on the No Borders shelter in Calais, both of these events appear to have given way to Schnews.
I appreciate that Indymedia UK has been going through some tough times of late, and I recognise that Schnews does gives excellent coverage but why the merging of the two? The lead stories don't even link to other Indy stories on the same topic but to Schnews stories on different topics.
Now, I'm sure that the someone will say that the reason the Aldermaston story is not up is cos no one wrote it yet, but I'm sure that a rehash of say Trident Ploughshare's website and then a link to some time lines could be done as has happened for similar events!
The No Borders piece in fact is updating in the way that Indymedia is famous for and should have stayed put.
So please, dear friends from Schnews could you not take over the feature column with your witty repartee? Or at least explain your plans to us mere mortals on the public parts of Schindy.
