Second Indymedia Server Seized in UK Within a Year

For the second time within the past year, an Indymedia server has been seized in the United Kingdom. This time it is the Bristol Indymedia server (currently redirected to the United Kollectives IMC site); this follows on from the Ahimsa seizure last October. The current seizure was carried out using a search warrant by the UK police at approximately 16:30GMT on 27 June 2005. This was despite being warned by lawyers that this server was considered an item of journalistic equipment and so subject to special provision under the law (press release). Bristol Indymedia is currently being supported by the National Union of Journalists, Liberty and Privacy International. Other media organisations have declared their support — via Slashdot
