Appeal from the CIRA library

[Appeal from the International Center for Research on Anarchism (CIRA)]

Dear friends,

The four walls of CIRA's library in Lausanne, Switzerland, hold one of the largest collections of documents on the anarchist movement. Unfortunately, those four walls will not extend. We’ve exhausted our creative strategies in building scaffolds, covering every inch of spare wall playing a huge game of tetris. This, of course, has an impact on our project and its acquisition policy. This is why the team at CIRA is launching an 'anarchitecture contest' to engage everyone in a collective brainstorming on how we can make this place live for as long as possible beyond the physical barriers we confront.

“The resistance is global… a trans-pacific collaboration has brought this web site into existence.”

that’s how the first article on started on November 24th 1999. By forming the Indymedia network, we put journalism and press work about our actions and protests back into our own hands. With Indymedia, the anti-globalisation movement testified that a different and empowering “globalisation” in solidarity is possible.

“Hard times demand independent media…”

wrote those who started in their foundation statement.
