>many of you have already heard about the lawsuit against indymedia 
>because some anti-semitic articles/comments and the latuff cartoons haven't
>been deleted totaly. indymedia switzerland has a 'censorship waste bin', 
>discriminating postings are banned to. this waste bin is transparent, so the
>hidden/banned postings are still viewable for everybody. that's the reason 
>the lawsuit against at least two supposed indymedia activist (called 
>and 'moderators'). in switzerland exists a anti-racism law to proceed against
>racist propaganda. you can find the first indy.ch statement (regarding the
>lawsuit) from 6th february at:
>this legal action has been prepared (in a political way) by a group called 
>(for a progressive anticapitalism), who flooded indymedia switzerland in
>december, because of the same reasons as the lawsuit. it's a group of people
>from the leftist scene in switzerland. we know all of them and had a common
>political history...
>now it has been decided to temporarily close indymedia switzerland 
>its open publishing part. this is a try to shift the discussions from the
>internet into the real/non-virtual world. it's a try to cool down the
>situation, which is really hot at the moment. we want to deescalate...
>soon will follow a statement and some more information, but it also has to be
>clarified with the legal situation...
>we received a lot of e-mails from indymedia activists, who asked for 
>writing a
>report about what happened. we want to thank you for all your solidarity and
>for sure we'll need much more of your support... ;-)
>we hope that the statement (and informsations), which will be published in 
>days, can help the people and the groups to release their own statements. 
>would be a great help for us, but we understand if these groups want to wait
>til they got enough informations...
>so, maybe you have to wait with your reports and features til the 
>statement has
>been published...?
