Subject: "Arbitrary" seizure of IndyMedia web servers

I imagine you've seen this already but it is truly chilling stuff. The only positive thing I can see is the Geroge Bush effect where so many people become alarmed that an equal and opposite reaction to the one intended occurs.

I know PMW is a regional service, but how long before the bite goes on our part of the world? Gulp.

Thanks,

APC condemns "arbitrary" seizure of IndyMedia web servers by US and
European law enforcers

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, October 12 2004 -- APC condemns the actions
by US and European law enforcement agencies to seize independent online
news service Indymedia's web servers closing down over 21 of the more
than 140 Indymedia web sites worldwide. "We are disturbed by the
apparently arbitrary and extreme measures taken to silence an
independent internet-based source of information," said Anriette
Esterhuysen, APC's Executive Director. "This is a violation of freedom
of expression across international frontiers." -- APCNews
