Indymedia Scotland Mission Statement presented to global indymedia network in order to be recognised as part of it in March 2003.

Someone from Indymedia Scotland could be found one day a week in office of camcorder guerillas in GMAC in Glasgow.

For those that don't know Scotland has 5 Million people living in it and it is one of countries that makes up the United Kingdom. Edinburgh and Glasgow are it's large cities. Other towns are Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling, Perth, Inverness.

IMC stands for Independent Media Centre, but there is not physical Centre for Indymedia in Scotland. The name was coined for a physical centre in Seattle in US durring protests against the WTO summit. A group that had come together to report for j18 Carnival against Capital (June 18th 1999) became IMCUK for MayDay2000. And IMC Scotland is part of network that grew out of this. IMC Scotland has people involved with it from various parts of Scotland and so postal mail can be sent to only some of those at any one address. Those involved in IMC are often involved in other projects.

An alternative approach to the first draft of the mission statement was mooted in an IMC disscussion paper and this was taken on board in discussions and in the revision. More debate since on publishing model of IMC
