image What to Make of Germany’s Ban of Linksunten Indymedia 480_freiburg-linksunten-indymedia-solidarity_1.jpg by Greg Macdougall

Various Indymedias have seen this pattern in other forms since the network’s founding at the 1999 protests in Seattle against the World Trade Organization – raids, seizures of webservers, and attacks on Indymedia centres established to cover summit protests.

Defensive about the raid, Oakland police first smeared the family with a salacious and blatantly untrue allegation while the raid was still in pro...
