Letter re: new lists

Letter we need to send out asap to let people know about and hopefully join our shiny new mailing lists

to: imc-leeds

subject: Important information about closure of IMC-Leeds mailing list

To all Northern IMCistas,

regarding: lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/im...

As many of you will be aware, we are going through a massive period of change at the moment. We have merged the former Leeds/Bradford and York IMC’s into the Northern Indymedia collective, drafted the New IMC form that we will shortly be sending out to the global network, created a new collaboration space at we.riseup.net/imc-northern and are busy working behind the scenes on our shiny new website, which if things go to plan, we will switch over to from our current site in about a months time (fingers crossed!).

The latest change is a REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT one and affects everyone on this list. We have set up 2 new mailing lists, imc-northern@lists.indymedia.org and the private imc-northern-contact@lists.indymedia.org (for confidential stuff) to replace the Leeds and York ones, and as such need a mass exodus over to lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/im... , from where you can easily subscribe to the new mailing lists.

We know it’s a bit of a pain in the arse to do, and that we may leave some people behind, but in roughly a month from now these lists will be shut down (though they will remain as an archive) and we will be using the new lists exclusively. Please please come over as soon as possible and help us build our hugely important new community resource from the wonderfully planted roots of Leeds/Bradford and York Indymedia. Even if it’s just reading the postings and staying informed about what is going on, or better still getting stuck in to positive debate and discussion of where we should be headed, we need as many of you as possible to make it happen!

We hope to see and speak to you all at lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/im... soon!

In Solidarity,

IMC Northern


Yay our brand new lists are here at last, so we need to try and get some movement over from leeds as soon as is possible. In order to get this moving, I’m proposing a 24hr deadline for any edits before it gets sent to te list, along with the letter to local groups, sometime after midday tomorrow (thursday 18th).

Exciting times!


Ok this has been sent, we can now start sending out the letter to local groups if we want.
