"They had pics of Nick Berg's beheading this morning"...

That's the breaks, kid. I'm really sorry for your loss. Why don't you go rent a few episodes of 'Highlander', and just pretend.

information clearinghouse is a critically important source 12.May.2004 00:54

some solidarity and investigation is needed

i saw this post earlier, but just found the same thing when i unknowingly pressed a link to the info clearinghouse from another page,  http://www.robert-fisk.com .

why is it down?

is this a real billing problem or is it something much deeper?

remember, when you see american soldiers murdering prisoners in iraq and blowing everything up, it is only a reflection of what america has become.

let's see. the american government shut down (at LEAST one) iraqi newspaper with a circulation of a few thousand because they didn't like what the paper was printing (probably the truth). what makes people think they won't shut down, and even imprison, americans who post the truth on the internet?

hopefully much more connected allies of the people running  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info are aware of what is going on and will put the word out if this is a government action.

it's back up 12.May.2004 10:18

As of right now, thememoryhole.org is down, global indymedia (indymedia.org) is down. It's been down for the past six hours and they've just put up a "regular maintenance" notice. Other indymedias attached to the global machine are also down, e.g. nyc.indymedia.org

Now ONLY the memory hole is down, all others back up 12.May.2004 23:21

Information Clearinghouse, and the Global and NYC Indymedias, are back up.
