CMI-PR : process : about

The Centro de Medios Independientes de Puerto Rico is a non-commercial, democratic collective of Puerto Rico's independent media makers and media outlets, and serves as the local organizing unit of the global Indymedia network.

Web hosting provided by the Pittsburgh IMC.

Principles of Unity: Puerto Rico Independent Media Center

a.The CMI-PR, or Indymedia Puerto Rico, subscribes to all the Points of
Unity of the Global Network of IMCs, and as so all our work is voluntary and
in no way will CMI-PR embark in commercial enterprises that would benefit
its members.

b.The CMI-PR is an open, democratic and non-hierarchical organization that
seeks to create new ways and new spaces for the exchange of information
between citizens of our country and the rest of the world.

c.The CMI-PR will be organized and self-directed by way of open meetings,
be them real or virtual, in which participants will enjoy the same rights
and opportunities to be heard and to influence in collective decisions
following the consensual deliberative model. The collective is formed by
those people that regularly participate in the meetings and chores of the
CMI-PR.

d.The CMI-PR is based in that society can be different and we embrace the
ideals of social change towards a freer, more just, more democratic and more
participative global society. The ideas and concrete manifestations of
racism, sexism, imperialism, fundamentalism, homophobia, authoritarianism,
fascism, militarism and lies; negate, historically and practically, our
ideals of justice and social change which are summarized in the sentence:
another more just world is possible.

e.The CMI-PR understands diversity as a strength and not a weakness. The
collective will operate under a pluralist frame and as so will not
discriminate against anyone for reasons of gender, sexual preference,
ethnicity, class, age, physical or sensorial limitations. The CMI-PR is open
to people of all political and religious beliefs, as long as those beliefs
do not negate the basic postulates in favor of social change expressed in
the previous point. The CMI-PR will not be, under any circumstance, a
mouthpiece for any religious or political party, although members of the
collective, as individuals, have the liberty to cultivate any political and
religious bonds.

f.The CMI-PR understands, and is so confirmed by the recent global events
and the history of our country, that there are repressive forces in our
society whose mission is to prevent the social change in which our model is
based. As so, we respect the decision of any of our members to remain
anonymous or to use pseudonyms. We are compromised to protect, with maximum
effort, the identity of any person that solicits it.

g.As an organization that is simultaneously local and global, the CMI-PR
has the responsibility to watch its local growth fomenting the creation of
CMIs in the different regions of Puerto Rico that will constitute autonomous
parts of this project. On a regional lever it is our duty to collaborate
with the existing CMIs, and to foment the creation of other CMIs, especially
in our surrounding Caribbean region. In the same fashion, the CMI-PR has the
responsibility to participate in the discussion and activities of the Global
IMC and to collaborate in a diversity of ways in the reproduction and growth
of this planetary communicational project. Some of this ways can be the
development of knowledge and of technology, and to provide human, social and
economic resources.

h.We believe in the processes of collective intelligence in a local and
global level. As so, we foment the use of practices and technologies open to
the participation of all citizens (like open sources and open publishing).


Mission Statement

a.The Independent Media Center of Puerto Rico is a collective of voluntary
work that is based on the principles of decentralization and openness to
create new ways and spaces for the exchange of information between the
citizens of our country and the world.

b.It is our objective to divulge news information and analysis that is
currently ignored by the corporate press, or is shown in a slanted way by
them.

c.We compromise to internationalize our struggles and to nationalize the
global struggles, and we will make an effort to grow on a local level, and
to establish productive ties on a global level, because the success of a
project of this sort depends on the direct participation of all citizens to
make this motto a reality: every citizen a reporter.

Get Involved
