The first topic site to submit an application to new-imc was Biotech IMC which went live to cover the WTO/USDA Ministeral in Sacramento in June of 2003. The activists currently working on the Biotech IMC have issued a proposal for topical imc's to be welcomed into the global network. This proposal was introduced in October 2003, and again in December 2003, they have gone largely unnoticed. |
FTAA IMC was created around the FTAA meeting in Miami and has since become a very useful tool for spreading the word of western hemisphere free trade exploits, especially for those in the global south that are most affected by these free trade proposals.
Independant media activists from Portland have helped with both of these sites and feel that they haven proven to be effective tools for organizing and disseminating information.
