About Indymedia and the Independent Media Centers

Indymedia is a collective of independent media organizations and hundreds of journalists offering grassroots, non-corporate coverage Indymedia is a democratic media outlet for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of truth.

You can find out more about getting involved at the following websites - -
Although each IMC has it's own mission statement, many are modeled after the Seattle IMC. As of yet there is no overarching mission statement for all IMC's or the indymedia network.

The Seattle Independent Media Center Mission:

The Independent Media Center is a grassroots organization committed to using media production and distribution as a tool for promoting social and economic justice. It is our goal to further the self-determination of people under-represented in media production and content, and to illuminate and analyse local and global issues that impact ecosystems, communities and individuals. We seek to generate alternatives to the biases inherent in the corporate media controlled by profit, and to identify and create positive models for a sustainable and equitable society.
