CALGARY - In an effort to help independent and mainstream journalists stay connected with activists participating in demonstrations against the G-8, the Alberta Independent Media Centre has established an Internet list-serve.
Once you have added you name to the list-serve, all activist news releases handled by the Independent Media Centre during the Summit will automatically be forwarded to your e-mail address.
To join the list-serve, please visit: http://ender.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/g8-press-statements and simply fill out the form under the heading "subscribe to G-8 press statements."
In addition to the list-serve, the Media Centre is also developing a list of activist spokespeople who will be available for comment in Calgary. The spokesperson list - along with a press conference notice board - can be found at the web address listed above.
Finally, while in Calgary, please visit the Independent Media Centre in the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts (across from the Telus Convention Centre on 8th Ave, SW). Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions journalists may have about activist events and issues.
The Alberta Independent Media Centre (AIMC) is a non-commercial, democratic collective of Alberta independent media makers and media outlets, and serves as the local organizing unit of the global Indymedia network.
The Alberta Federation of Labour is not a member of AIMC. We are distributing this notice as a courtesy to both the AIMC and the journalists who will benefit from their service.
