IGD wants to share your story. We accept original content that shares perspective and intentions with It’s Going Down. We have taken several steps to help ensure privacy, security, and anonymity; however this is not foolproof. We read and review submitted content and ask that to respect our time and efforts you write to the following guidelines:
- Make sure your articles are edited. Poorly edited pieces will be rejected.
- Make sure your facts and quotes are backed up by hyperlinks. If we have to go back and do a massive amount of fact checking on your article we will reject it.
- Include at least one picture.
- Examples of contributions are communiques, editorials, first hand accounts, report-backs, interviews, documentaries, original research, essays, etc.
- Please limit linking to or re-posting from corporate media; if a comrade / movement source is unavailable please provide some analysis.
- Photo, Tweets, and Video are strongly encouraged!
- Please spell and grammar check articles and be intentional with HTML formatting.
- Please do not share anything that directly or indirectly incriminates individuals. We don’t want to know who did what. If you are unsure on security culture basics, read here or listen here.
- Does the analysis come from an anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist perspective?
- Is the action self-organized and put forward outside the hands of top-down groups?
- Is the activity in conflict with an institution of power?
- Was there any real risk in its performance or was the symbolism powerful enough to manifest a deeper resonance with liberatory struggle?
- Does the piece place itself in a larger context or history of revolt?
- Was the action or analysis based in North America or does it have a strong relationship to here?
- Calls to action are currently only being accepted by networks or groups and prisoners that have the ability to pull others in.
- Publications are accepted that include a PDF for free download and printing (feel free to upload onto IGD) or articles from the pages inside. We do not accept ads for books and magazines.
If you feel as though your submission does not ante up, then IGD might not be the right place. Not all submissions are accepted. These guidelines certainly will adapt as needed. Thanks!
