Nottingham Indymedia Review of 2012Tagged as: 2012 new_year review
Published by group: Notts Indymedia
The beginning of 2013 offers an opportunity to look back over our achievements (or lack of) in 2012. While the mainstream media obsessed over the Queen's Diamond Jubilee "celebrations" and the Olympics and Paralympics, Nottingham Indymedia has continued to report on the ongoing campaigns of groups as varied as tax campaigners (Notts Uncut), animal rights activists (opposing the badger cull) and environmentalists (occupying the gas power station at High Marnham).
Unfortunately this year has been notably quieter on the newswire than those which preceded it, a reflection of the current downturn in struggle across the country (although seemingly not elsewhere in Europe). This, coupled with the technical issues which have afflicted the site over the last few months, have posed questions about what - if anything - the future of the project is. This is something Nottingham Indymedia will be exploring - hopefully with input from others in and around the city - early in the new year. Watch this space to see how you can get involved.
