Biotech Indymedia

Biotech Independent Media Centre is an issue based Indymedia site dedicated to biotechnology and genetic engineering in agriculture, food, medicine as well as its relevance to globalisation. It is about struggles everywhere against the commodification of life, and about alternatives.

Our aim is to connect activists and IMCs, as well as concerned groups and individuals from around the world by learning about one another and our actions. This specialised site is a tool for creating, covering, spreading and highlighting IMC content from all over the world, both from different Indymedia newswires and by open publishing.

Indymedia Biotech is set up by a group of volunteers from different continents working on biotech issues, many of whom are also Indymedia activists of local IMCs. We are committed to a multilingual site to break through language barriers that keep local actions restricted to local languages, or that exclude people that don't speak and write the main language of a global website.

We are part of the Indymedia network and therefore share Indymedia's principles of Open Publishing, and of horizontality, openness and consensus as the basis of our work. We work out of a love and inspiration for people who continue to work for a better world, despite corporate media's distortions and unwillingness to report the efforts to create autonomous and sustainable futures.
