I have relocated this here -- it sketches a web of connections but when looking at the Indymedia site it is derived from none of the points are referenced. So i think it would be better for each point to be supported with references rather than taking the claims at face value. --Bob Burton 21:53, 20 Dec 2005 (EST)

Someone Who Knows What They Are Doing Might Look into This
