version 1.0 : : 04/04/04
exists to provide an online resource for the anarcha-feminist
movement, to the greater public. We aim to promote all forms
of radical anti-statist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, pro-women,
transgender, LGBTQ and ally worldview.
editorial policy is a general guideline. By no means the end-all,
be-all, it will change with time and input from collaborators
and the public.The information provided below is meant for
anarcha.org moderators, but is available for the public to
explain how the news service works.
anarcha.org is NOT an open newswire. People are welcome to
submit news, but there is no expectation that every item will
be approved. This is mainly because of resource limitations,
but also because of content and other issues.
We have a limit of 5-10 news stories per day. We have this
limit because want the site to stay manageable (for us) and
readable (for the public). We want people to feel that they
can keep up by checking by once a day.
First priority on the newswire is given to articles and news
written by or about anarcha-feminists, anarchist women, or
about gender anarchy issues. On some days days, the newswire
will include a variety of articles and news of general interest
4) anarcha.org will include articles from a variety of sources,
including mainstream corporate news and other independent
news sources. However, these types of articles should not
be posted on a daily basis, nor should it dominate the articles.
5) News stories and opinion should be newsworthy and current.
People who want to see older material posted on anarcha.org
can either post it in the anarcha
messageboard, or submit
it to the sallydarity
6) Articles and excerpts from magazines and zines should be
submitted by people associated with the publication. anarcha.org
will set up arrangements with magazines and zines to make
sure that authorized people are posting content from the publication.
Choosing submissions - Throughout the day, people will submit
news stories and articles. This is where you have to make
an editorial judgment call. Think about what would be of interest
to anarcha-feminists, anarchists, the public and what is current
2) Corporate articles - Generally, only the first few paragraphs
from a corporate news article should be posted, so that we
can avoid copyright infringement complications. Create a "Read
more" link to the rest of the article.
3) "Anarcha-Feminist events" - Events posted under
this topic should be of interest to a region or bigger. Information
about strictly local protests should not be approved for this
5) "Summary box" - The content of this box should
be a teaser for the news story. Often, the first paragraph
or two from the story is the best content for this box. If
the text is from the article, or wasn't written by the person
who posted it, put the text in italic tags. You are free to
add a one to two sentence editorial comment after the teaser
text. Often the people who submit the news story will put
nonsense or a sentence fragment in this box. Feel free to
remove that content in order to insert content that better
describes the news story.
6) Link box - Please be careful about posting long URLs in
the "Link" box below the story. In general, long
links should be put into the body of the story.
