Abstract

Indymedia UK was created in 1999; right after the first Independent Media Center was set up in Seattle in November that year to allow participants to the anti-WTO demonstrations to report from the streets. But it emerged from an earlier website, created by a group of activists to report from the occupation of the City of London in June 18, 1999. Since 1999, the website has kept growing, incorporating technological developments and responding to the organizational needs of social movements. This interview recounts the birth and developments of the Indymedia London website and of the group running it. It was collected between February and November 2008 using the method of online asynchronous interviewing, and is part of an extensive research project on emancipatory communication practices carried out in the period 2006-2008.2
