About

About:

We are a network of friends and comrades across so-called North America that seeks to provide news and analysis of when it goes down: riots, strikes, sabotage, occupations, expropriations, rebellion, revolt, insurrection, whether together or alone – we support liberatory revolt. You get the point.

Why do we ask for money?: 

IGD is not a hobby or a part time project, it takes full time work to pull it off. We pay people that run the website who do it full time, we buy equipment, we print t-shirts, we print booklets, we pay for the printing of a magazine, and so on. With all that in mind, $2k a month is a pretty low amount for a project that on average gets worked on 10+ hours a day. The whole point of crowdfunding is to make these things sustainable and full time, so we can grow to hopefully replace other media in the future to further the goals of the revolutionary movement.

It sucks, but in order to do that it takes money.

Also, a lot of what we do is making original articles and podcasts, as well as editing and formatting submissions. We also try and ask always other projects that are also asking for money for their work (like Unicorn Riot, Indigenous Action Media, Gods and Radicals, etc) if they want us to report their stuff. We aren’t trying to steal stuff from people that don’t want us to repost. Having said that, if you don’t want IGD to repost your articles and we haven’t got in touch with you first, please email us at info [at] itsgoingdown [dot] org.

You’ll also notice that sites that we repost from, we don’t put an ad at the bottom, out of respect for the featured project. Plus, we try and post all of the calls for funds for political prisoners, autonomous spaces, and other projects we can get our hands on. A lot of what IGD does is just being a signal boost for smaller sites that don’t have a big as an audience. We aren’t doing this to be rich, but we wanna get enough to keep doing it.

IGD Magazine: 

In the Winter/Spring of 2016, IGD as a group published a magazine documenting the first 6 months of the website and collected some of the most powerful articles that we published and re-published. Below are links to the PDF, both in color and in black and white, as well as the video which promoted the crowdfunding campaign which helped give life to the project. We encourage people to print out copies and share. Check out our promotional video that was made thanks to the help of our friends at the Final Straw and SubMedia.Tv!
