Groups and Contacts
Indymedia UK was a network of groups and volunteers across the country. It split in two on May 1 2011, and this site is one of the fragments from that split. The collective that runs this site is usually known as the Mayday Collective.
You can get in touch with local groups and project subgroups, or check out the general lists, where the entire UK network is listening.
Please be aware that most lists are publicly archived, which means that anyone can read your mail online.
Please submit reports using the Publish Page. If you are experiencing technical problems you can ask for help on the Indymedia UK Techs list - please be as descriptive as possible (note the list is publicly archived). General Discussion
To take part in general discussion please subscribe to our publicly archived imc-uk list but most of running of imcuk takes place elsewhere.
If you don't want your mail being read online, mail to our contact list (see section "more contacts").
Subgroups are collaborating on several work lists. If you want to contribute to print, text, audio or other specific projects, you can contact the subgroups directly on their email lists. All of them are publicly archived. Click on the list of your choice to see details on its contact page.

Cross-communication in the United Kollektives
There was a time when all IMC-groups in the UK could discuss things together on mailing lists. Only one such list now remains:
Other lists have been archived:
If you want to get involved but this page isn't helping much in making up your mind, check out Getting Involved at global Indymedia. If you register to the page, a trust-worthy person (probably one of us :-) will contact you privately and try to give a better idea.
The world's imc-mailing lists
The global Indymedia project operates through a system of email lists, dedicated to geographical areas or specific projects. See the world's complete list of imc mailing lists.
If you don't want your mail being read online, mail to imc-uk-contact at lists.indymedia.org. Your mail then goes to a privately archived list, only volunteers of imc-uk can read it online.
Email, if not encrypted, should be thought of as a postcard. Even postings to private lists that are not publicly archived can be read by the authorities. For internet privacy tools check epic.org. Postings to publicly archived lists can be found through a search engine (like google) very easily. Try this google search to see how google indexes list archives.
