No one knows how it happened.

All the email lists have been deleted:

"March 20 2015

Portland Indymedia has become a haven for antisemitism and conspiracy theories and is either unwilling or unable to filter itself. It should either disband or fundamentally rework itself."

Whoever is in charge of authorizing use of the "indymedia.org" domain needs to be told that the Portland group is

  1. No longer operating as a transparent collective
  2. Exploiting the Indymedia brand for their own agenda

Whoever owns the indymedia.org domain and servers needs to know the Portland group should be shut down until the can prove they serve the community.
