Santa Cruz Indymedia's Regional Integration with

We are very pleased to announce that the Santa Cruz Independent Media Center's website will now be regionally integrated with, the website of the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center. The new website address for Santa Cruz Indymedia is
Together, as media activists in Central and Northern California and throughout the world, we will use the tactic of Indymedia to share news and information from within the struggles for a world based on freedom, cooperation, justice and solidarity, and against environmental degradation, neoliberal exploitation, racism and patriarchy.

Indymedia erodes the dividing line between reporters and reported, between active producers and passive audience: people are enabled to speak for themselves. We will share an open publishing newswire of text, photos, audio and video contributed directly to the Indybay website and Santa Cruz IMC will have a newswire specifically for articles relating to the Monterey Bay Area.

For Santa Cruz IMC, this is a chance to expand our website resources to include a page en español as well as topic and regional pages. A photo gallery and bittorrent downloads are some of the other new options for viewing and distributing media contributed to SC-IMC. The open-publishing newswire for SC-IMC is now separated into the following three sections: Local News, Global News and Other/Breaking News.

The Santa Cruz IMC Calendar also has a new website address: This calendar is specific to the Monterey Bay Area, but is also integreated into Indybay's calendar for the Bay Area, Central Valley and North Coast. is now ready for your articles, photos, audio and videos and you can now post event announcements to SC-IMC's new Calendar located at

Please select "Santa Cruz IMC" when publishing to both the newswire and calendar.

So the SC IMC as an organization is disbanding, and handing official steward of our central coast region to the existing Indybay staff?
