"We need the Independent Media Centers... Let the voices of the environment, of
human rights, of labor, of
consumers, of grassroots democracy be heard. Let's support the Independent
Media Center to help those
voices

be heard in Seattle and around the world."

Norman Solomon, author, The Habits of Highly Deceptive Media,

Institute for Public Accuracy

I applaud and congratulate organizations like the Independent Media Center that
have made real strides in the
fight
to break out of the media monopoly.

Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr. Founder & President of the Rainbow/PUSH
Coalition

"... the IMC is doing more than breaking the corporate monopoly on story telling, it is
inventing new media
models
that are uniquely equipped to mirror the international and diverse nature of this
protest movement. This is
media that crosses borders and issues like no communication network we have ever
seen before. ... ... .Most
importantly, the IMC represents the merger of media and activism: an organization
that doesn't only cover the
actions
on the street but spreads the very information that helps draw thousands to the
streets in the first place. I
strongly
urge you to support the IMC groundbreaking work."
