AK Gupta Named "General Manager" of the Indypendent

Marks the culmination of a 9 year plan to seize power
This week, AK Gupta was named the sole general manager of the Indymedia newspaper The Indypendent. The hiring marks the culmination of a 9 year plan to seize power that began when Gupta orchestrated the firing and banning of Priya Reddy (Warcry), and involved, in later years, the abuse and banning of numerous other Indypendent volunteers, most of them women. This final coup was no exception. Like most takeovers, it was justified on the basis of financial necessity.
